Patience, or Patients?
We found this note stuck in the store door last week. We were here, outside working and found it when we came in for the evening. I read it and could not figure out what the note was referring to. You see, I was assuming it was a legitimate "thank you". My sarcasm radar was not working.
In case you can't read it, it says:
Thank you for letting the tent be put in the RV 30 amp area! We really appreciate it. Especially the part of camping right next to us. Thank you so much!
I will sometimes let people in RV's have a tent next to them for their children. Not a big deal. But I had not checked in anyone with that particular situation. I reviewed all my registrations and came to realize that it was the occupants of a class B camper parked in the tent area. They chose the spot themselves and a tent camper arrived after them and took the spot next to them.
I am confused ....... did they assume that they would be in that spot and no one else would come along and camp in an open spot next to them? The tent campers were not loud and did not create any problems. If they had a complaint, why did they not tell me, as I was outside working in full view, easy to spot. Or, call the office. I had the phone in my pocket. I would have offered to make the tenters move if they were too loud or disturbing them in any way. They could have easily moved themselves. Instead they chose to take apart a registration packet and waste it on their "anonymous" letter of sarcasm. Nice. Bet their neighbors just love them where ever they go.
On a much brighter note, the sunflowers are in bloom.
They always look so happy, bobbing in the breeze.
This one does not want to wake up!
I love this one. It looks like it has an eye on the world!
I have not been myself for the past week or so. Cannot really define what is wrong, but I just feel bad. Fatigue, lack of energy, breathless. Like a wrung out dish rag. Limp. Decided to monitor my blood pressure and it is very low. I take medication for high blood pressure and confess that I have been known to regulate my own dosage. I am supposed to take one in the morning and one in the evening.
For quite some time I have been taking half the dosage because I noticed that my blood pressure was low and I felt crappy. Now, I feel crappy again. Yesterday my blood pressure was 88 /48. That was sitting down. I spent most of the day sleeping on and off. I fulfilled my nap resolution for the week. I will be seeing the doctor Wednesday. I have quit taking my medication altogether. My blood pressure medication, that is. With no meds on board, it is 102/62. An improvement, but I still have no energy.
No energy does not keep my mind from working over time. I am frustrated. I want to mow things and plant things and sew things, maybe even cook things. I am not a good patient, because I am not patient. Patience is a virtue, so they say.
