I hate that I am here so infrequently these days. Having daily pain is so distracting to me. I'm sure that in time I will figure out how to deal better, and also hoping that the medication I started last month for my rheumatoid arthritis begins to kick in to bring down inflammation, but in the meanwhile, "the show must go on" as they say.
I'm hoping that by mid June my husband and I will be able to return to the office (dental). It will be three whole months out of work by then. It has been an interesting season of time, affording a real opportunity for me to rest, to exercise as I can, and to absorb "new normals" in every way. To "be quiet" in a way that only weeks of unscheduled time gives a person, if they have the desire for it.
In the meanwhile, thanks to all of you who wished me a happy birthday this past Monday. 60! It's hard to believe how quickly life transports us into older age. But I tried on 60 and it fit just fine, lol, so I'm not gonna fight to try to return it like I did when I turned 50, lol. Which seems like it was three years ago.
My daughter's sixth anniversary is today! Talk about the passage of time! What a day that was, one of the BEST days of my life.
My weight is stable for two years now, I am even below my 150 WW goal weight. I am still full steam ahead on my Mediterranean Diet and I LOVE this way of eating. Also, I just bought a juicer from my birthday money (thanks Mom!) and it has given me a brand new inlet of deep pleasure as I do all I can to put my body into optimal health. Today I blended up celery, spinach, lemon, ginger and turmeric. I can't get over how fresh and delicious it is. I bought a set of tall glass jars with lids and they are wonderful, too!!
So you know what? Pain, no pain... life can still be very good. Now if someone would just tell my dear husband!!!!!
Compliant, virtual hugs all around.
