Almost 4:30 Saturday afternoon, and again I have fought most of the afternoon with my Android device, for which WP has a crappy setup. Anyone know enough to give some pointers?
Nevertheless, I am very grateful today, for a large number of different happenings in my life. I got my creatinine and other lab work back, and I’m back in the semi-safe zone. I am glad to know this, because I decided years ago that I am not going to have kidney disease with dialysis. I still feel the same way.
I remain with my Mom, which fact is part of the reason I haven’t posted. I think I have been starved for deep intelligent discussions, and that’s almost all we do. She is healing from her knee replacement. though she continues with swelling and pain. She went for a long walk with a friend today — I bet it was more than 1/2 mile. Her outlook is good, and we are enjoying each other’s company. We’re about ready for a couple of days off, which we have not yet scheduled but will soon.
My family is doing well, and I spend special hugs and love to my nieces and nephews and their families. In his or her own way, each of them is juggling new stuff in their lives, and I send them all love and success.
Today is overcast, but we have had strings of gorgeous weather, with highs in the 60s-70s, and lows in the 40s — cold enough to need a blanket in bed. I don’t remember an October with so few rainy days before now. Almost every day is mostly sunny and bright blue skies.
I have not spent any time on your posts, my bloggy friends. I hope you all understand how much I needed this time off. I’m feeling more and more balanced every day. Please know that I will be back — maybe another couple of weeks, maybe sooner. I know everyone needs a break from difficult or intricate responsibilities, and this one is ideal for me. But I will be back — please don’t give up altogether! A big HOWDY to my new readers — I’m glad you’ve joined us.
Right now, I am tripping along from one good day to the next, and for that I am exceedingly grateful: grateful to have this opportunity, grateful to spend it with Mom, and thrilled that she is doing better, grateful for my health and the well-being of my spirit. I am a very lucky woman.
