How did I ever do a fulltime job!

I know that our mornings disappear, with hubby doing his diabetic readings, insulin shot, blood pressure check, to determine what medication he takes. Actually I believe it is 22 pills a day, plus down to 2 shots of insulin a day. Taking care of the areas he has pain etc., of course coffee, and breakfast.

We endeavor to get out by 10 a.m., and depending on what day it is, it can vary between mid-day, and 2 p.m. when we get home. I deal with correspondence, emails, phone calls, bills etc. Today it was the pharmacy. I went to do his 7 day planner yesterday, and got the new bottle of pills, only to find on the bottle it said ‘4’, instead of 60. 2 a day for a month. So I couldn’t complete them.

I phoned the pharmacy, and they said he had 60, and I insisted 4. Because there is always the correct amount, and I had looked on the paper that came with it, I put it aside with 5 others I got at the same time, So after lunch I went up there, and showed them the bottle. They were dumfounded, like I was, and said that 60 would be ready later today. Did I want to take the other scripts. I asked if they could do it immediately, because I had a busy day, no pharmacist there at that time to do it.

This is how my day has gone. I phoned the lab that keeps calling to say that they want to give hubby his Covid results. After waiting for ages, I was told that they had put me through to the wrong extension, and she couldn’t get me to the correct one. I was doing them a favor, as we knew the results, so ended up giving up.

I did get hubby’s prescriptions in the end. By then it was time to cook dinner. I finally sat down to eat, and watch the England – Wales friendly football match with 1 and a half minutes of added time left. Bummer.

We were going to the Eagles tonight, to celebrate hubby’s birthday, technically starts at 7 p.m. eastern time here, but hubby’s back hurts from his fall on Wednesday, and I didn’t feel like jumping up straight after eating to get ready. So here I am writing this long post explaining why I feel as if today was, just one of those days. I don’t know how I coped when I was still working.


  1. There is a famous chapter in the Bible about a virtuous woman, Proverbs 31. It reminds me of you.

    I know it’s tiring, emotionally and physically, to be the full-time caregiver. But I wanna you to know that even though I don’t always comment, I always read your posts and I am always encouraged.

    In this world of disposable marriages, your love and care for your husband shines like a beacon in the darkness.

    Proverbs 31:10

    Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

    11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

    12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

    13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

    14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

    15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

    16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

    17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

    18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

    19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

    20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

    21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

    22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

    23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

    24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

    25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

    26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

    27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

    28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

    29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

    30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

    31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.

  2. Women have secret stash of everything; patience, care, “time”, and money…

    You’re doing great Susie!
    God bless and happy bday to your hubby ❤️


  3. Boy do I get it! I spend all my time driving to doctors. Scheduling things for which I have to keep a totally accurate calendar or I am not somewhere we are supposed to be. Not to mention all else. I understand!
