I didn't feel like blogging yesterday. Yesterday was my last Friday at work. When I return on Monday, I will only work three days a week. Hopefully, this quarter someone will be found for Regis. In July, I will be down to two days a week. He needs more time than two days a week.
I'm trying not to feel guilty if no one is found. I gave plenty of notice. To find a replacement. I feel like I'm abandoning my clients.
It is time for me to retire. I want and need to do things other than go to work.
Our bathtub last had a good scrubbing a while ago. Last time it was done. Hubby did it. Well, I scrubbed it before we went down. It needs more scrubbing. But mentally, I'm just not up to it. But I gain significant ground with the tub. I will do more scrubbing during the week.
Just finished watching the movie. The Stranger. One of my goals is to watch all the things Orson Welles did. So far, all the movie roles have played back in the forties. If a female were strong, they were ole nags. And the nice one seems to have an unhealthy co-dependence role.
Today Musician comes from NEW YORK STATE. I'm featuring DEBBIE HARRY, the song THE TIDE IS HIGH, and the LYRICS.
Try not to feel guilty you have to do what is right for you.ReplyDelete
...great tune, keep the music playing.ReplyDelete
Love that song.ReplyDelete
You need to take care of yourself and not feel guilty.
It's hard not to feel guilty when you know what your clients need is more time with a quality carer, but as you said, you gave the company plenty of notice and it is up to them now to find someone.ReplyDelete
If I lived closer I could scrub your tub, I'm a whiz at getting tubs scrubbed.
Im glad you now have more time for yourself, you have given plenty of warning that more cover is needed. Hope that tub doesn't take up too much of your newly found spare time!ReplyDelete
No you shouldn’t feel guilty at all. You did give lots of notice and you need to do what’s right for you. You have earned itReplyDelete
Yes, you gave lots of notice. You deserve to retire like everyone else.ReplyDelete
Something like bath scrubbing can be good for your mental health. Doing menial tasks can be good.ReplyDelete
Looking after yourself is vital. Your clients will be okay!ReplyDelete
You are not to blame if the authorities don't find a replacement. Hugs, ValerieReplyDelete
The worst job I feel in the house is cleaning the oven. But, I clean it every six months so its never very dirty. Kneeling on the floor and reaching into the oven is difficult for me. HOpe you get your tub spotless. I never use mine so it doesn't get dirty. The tub is very low sided and the overflow drain is just 8 inches from the bottom of the tub, so its only good for little kids.ReplyDelete

Don't feel guilty. You provided a lot of time. I get it, as someone in human services who cares for clients, it can be hard.ReplyDelete
Do what is right for you. Just a thought; your body may be trying to unwind after all the stress of the past years. If your body says "relax and don't scrub the tub" I would listen to it. What I wouldn't listen to is the feelings of guilt. You gave plenty of notice. You have a right to be part time and eventually retire. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.comReplyDelete
It's time for you so don't feel guilty. You need the "me" time and you're quite ready.ReplyDelete
Of course he's going to drag his feet. But you gave plenty of notice. And you get to retire when you want to.ReplyDelete
You gave lots of notice. Cleaning a very dirty tub is hard work even with all the msagic cleaning solutions. A little at a time.ReplyDelete
