Self-Preservation

**Disclaimer:  This blog does not give medical or financial advice.

I know that self-preservation is ALWAYS important so I make sure that I make time for things that I enjoy, like to do or must do to ensure my health in all areas of my life and in all of my roles as: Me, Wife, Mom, Daughter, and Caregiver.

I could have chosen to worry all night about some insect bites that I saw yesterday on mom’s wrist and knee, which I did address yesterday and hope they are less red today; but I chose not to obsess over them and hopefully all will look better when I get there this morning.

Ways in which I self-preserve are: reading, exercising, eating well, spending time with my hubby, doing this blog, listening to music (folk, jazz, classical), reading the weekend edition of the NY Times, especially the book section, connecting with former colleagues through email, finding a good movie or show to watch on tv.

Everyone has their own way to self-preserve.

Mom’s menu today:

B: Fruit medley of 1/2 banana and watermelon     Scrambled egg white   Decaf coffee   Meds   Water

L:  Finish Sardine Plate in fridge from yesterday   Decaf Coffee   Meds   Water

D:  Pizza!!!!    Salad    Meds    Water

Mom loves pizza. To ensure not too many carbs, she’ll have one slice and I have individually wrapped the other slices for her freezer for other meals.  Notice I didn’t include any bread in her breakfast since she’s having the pizza for dinner. Hopefully she’ll go along with this. We’ll see.
