Patience Lord Patience

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

I know one of my worst traits is that I am very much a Type A personality-Virgo-want things done NOW. Waiting on drs is wearing on my nerves-it may be me in the hospital instead of DH the way things are going. Dad isn't making my life any easier, either.
My dear hubby got up this morning and took him down for his weekly coffee and donuts-not sure he appreciates it but he always tries to be there and take him every Tuesday morning. Dad looks forward to it but it means getting up at 6:30 to take him. Normally we would walk early but not for hubby on Tues.
Dad's microwave hasn't been working and I thought it was shot, so this afternoon went to get him a new one and then was running more errands for him and he had to warm his own supper while I was gone and the new microwave didn't work either! Light bulb moment-not the microwave-it is the plug in! Just what I need, another problem, now I have to get an electrician out to figure this out.
Guess this would be easier IF dad acted like he appreciates I was taking care of things for him today instead of being with my hubby.
We have decided we just have to go on living like we have the past couple of weeks while we were waiting for the test and what will be will be. However, the docs are going to be hearing from me if someone doesn't call tomorrow!!!! Patience only goes so far and then I need some answers.

    Try the fuse or the circuit breaker before you try an electrician. Thinking of you, with prayers and hugs.

    Being a Virgo myself, I completely understand! Don't forget to take time for yourself or you won't be any good for anyone.

    I hear that. There isn't anything wrong with calling the doctors for info.

    When the plug stopped working here...pushing the reset button on the OTHER plug fixed it. Not saying I had the same issue as your Dad, but that I understand the frustration when crazy, unexplained, why-now, Murphy's law moments happen.

    Sending happy hugs your way:)

    How difficult it must be for you, waiting for answers that never seem to come.
    Hang in there and take care of yourself. You need to be healthy and strong
    to deal with everything and you can't let yourself get run down. HUGS and
    continued prayers!
