Yes, it’s the weekend. This is a “get things done” weekend. I’m thinking about the weekend right now over a cold beverage.
I’ve got to get outside and get some items crossed off of my list. Mow the grass, spray some weeds away, clean the filter for the water garden. Also, clean the gutters, change out a couple of lights, and maybe get some laundry done. Make a trip with to the dump with a lot of old junk that’s been piling up. And that’s just for starters.
Oh, and I’ve got to get on my bike again this weekend, like I’ve been trying to do (as much as I can) these days. I haven’t mentioned it yet, but I have another ride coming up next Saturday. This one is (at least in part) a JDRF ride, so I’m excited about that. I just hope the weather cools off a bit between now and then. Without any rain. Is that too much to ask?
Here’s the thing about all this stuff I have to do: How much gets done will really depend a lot on how my glucose is trending. An ill-timed low can leave me too tired to do much. Too high, and I’ll probably get things done but feel like crap. Have I mentioned that diabetes sucks in that way?
If you’re a Person With Diabetes, I’m not telling you anything you don’t know. And if you’re a PWD without a weekend off, you probably think I’m way too self-centered. And you’re probably right. At least that’s how I felt about people like me when I worked weekends for about 18 years. Sorry about that.
I guess what I’m saying is that I’m thinking about something I don’t have total control of, that may or may not affect me in the next 12 to 36 hours. And I want to get it out of my head.
I hope I’m not thinking about it tomorrow and Sunday.
And most of all, I hope your weekend is filled with less tasks and more reflection. More play and less work. More joy and less sorrow.
