This week has been a busy one. So much I want to share, but probably wont have the time. I will hit the highlights. Two doctors appointment, One dentist, hand therapist, lunch with my bosses, gaming night, women’s night, movie night with hubby and work. And today my hubby and I are helping a friend with a BBQ for the Crohns and Colitis foundation. Then handsome is going to paint the kitchen walls a nice sage colour.
My hubby is so awesome, he did the laundry for me yesterday while I was at work and emptied and refilled the dishwasher so I could get some time to rest today. I am blessed.
Now for the weeks updates.
First a little detour : I enjoy my job. unfortunately there are days my body does not enjoy me enjoy my job. The pain it pumps through makes it uncomfortable to sit still. But even on those bad days I can find something to chuckle about. It doesn’t take much, a misspelled word, a symbol in the wrong place. I even chuckle at myself. Laughter helps me through the tough days.
Now for the weekly update. 😀
I get anxious when I go to the doctors. I know what is wrong with me, I just don’t want to live with it. 🙂 Life is to short as is, to be waiting around a Doctors office. The hand specialist outcome: surgery again. When I don’t know. I only know surgery again. Ouch! we are now budgeting for the time I will be taking off. Family Doctor outcome: Got all my meds updated, including the epi pens for those nasty allergies that get out of hand. I got home and realized I forgot two of them. So back to the doctors in a week for a quick pick up of a prescription. Age is causing a lot of the pain. I won’t accept that. nope I am not growing old. :` I am only 53 years young. 🙂
As for the dentist. back again for the next two Wednesday afternoon to fix and replace old fillings that are loose. Needles I hate them. Atvan is my friend when it comes to going for needles and the dentist, I take one of those babies and my anxiety turns to mush for an afternoon. A little freezing, drilling, filling and then home to sleep it off. I don’t know why I am more afraid of dentists than doctors. I only recollect seeing one once when I was a kid and I had good teeth. Then the army and ever since then I see one every six months. hmm growing up has its downside I guess. 😦
My bosses are cool. they took us to lunch this week as a thank you and we had great food and lots of laughter. I am still stuffed and its Saturday. We went on Thursday. I have been blessed in the jobs I have had over the years to have had wonderful caring bosses.
Women’s night a time of prayer and talking without having to be aware of how or what you said. It was good. A shame we don’t do it more often. hint hint to those who set up the schedules.. I know you are reading this. 😀
The hand therapist, nice gifted knows what she is doing. put a cast on the pinky finger to help straighten it out. That was on Tuesday, on Friday I removed said case as a piece broke off and it was itching like crazy. I phoned her first and got her permission of course. Less than half and hour later of typing the pinky finger started to fold back on itself again. what a strange sensation and watching was even more amusing to me. We will try again next Friday with another cast.
Gaming night, laughter, fun, wonderful people we hang out with. We almost lost this time but rallied back and won. We play indoor table games for those inquiring minds. role playing conquering the bad guy. love the laughter we can find a joke in every move.
Movie night at home with hubby. A time to unwind a bit from a busy weekend. I chose “Facing the Giants‘. This is a wonderful family movie. Full of encouragement and life lessons. I had no idea that “Do not fear” is written in the Bible 365 times. that is one message a day for a year. I see a challenge coming on for me to find them all. I suffer from a lot of fears. Time to be bold and give them all up. This is a movie about a coach who faces so many challenges and how he put God first and what happens when you trust in God. I highly recommend this movie. Especially if you like football. 😀 We were cheering for the team at the end. Well it is football.
Well that is my week with the exception of today’s BBQ. It is sunny. 🙂
