My ego (and knee and ankle) were quite bruised leaving my Mom’s house with my kiddos in tow yesterday. As I fell to the ground rolling my ankle and slamming a knee to pavement I thought, “really, this now?!?”
I’d love to say 2019 is off to a great start, ha!
Actually, I feel like God is getting all the crummy crap out of the way for the year ahead for me/us. I’ve been listening to Super Soul Conversations for the last several months and I feel like there is more to explore and be appreciative of with my higher power.
I’m optimistic even though I can’t stand up. How’s that for faith?
Finances are what they are but we’re still light years ahead of a decade ago. IRA is full… IRA is full… I keep reminding myself. Thanks for your kind words of support this week. You guys rock! I know in a decade we’ll laugh at this time and still be enjoying our roof and HVAC 🙂
Health is improving, albeit a gluten-ing last weekend took me down for the count this week (hence a stumble and bad fall). I’m still recovering and doing all I can to be back in fighting shape.
I’ve realized each time gluten-ings happen I still need to be a better advocate for myself. I try not to make a fuss or be the center of attention when out with those who believe it’s in my head, but it’s time to “do me” and get what I need for my body or just bring my own food. Intermittent fasting has been nice, too.
It can be limiting, but freer to just eat what I eat and have no apologies. No one asks another about their abstention from dessert when losing weight? What does it matter if I abstain from gluten, eggs, and tree nuts?
Next week will improve and hopefully with no swelling, a few meds and compression socks I’ll be able to walk and exercise again. Our furnace should be complete this evening, right before a cold snap in a few days.
The long weekend ahead includes sitting by the fire, reading with the kiddos, and enjoying a home that’s safe, loving, and warm. Eventually, I’ll have a money pit to swim in again 😂 but until then this is all we need.
That’s all I’ve got for this week. Send me a few good vibes would ya?
What podcasts are listening to these days?
