Life Can Be SO Frustrating, but...

Wednesday, August 25, 2010

I was right.

I'd been having trouble with my blood pressure the last few weeks, and had to see the doctor yesterday. They stood me on those infamous scales, and my suspicions were confirmed. Not only had I gained back the ten pounds I lost because of the surgery, I ADDED an additional SIX POUNDS. I told someone the other day it felt like I'd gained twenty...

...well I was right, and I was wrong.

I guess I should be happy it was only sixteen...! LOL

I bought my mobile home, but I'm STILL waiting for park approval--but DH says we're moving in anyway, he's tired of waiting on everyone else to get things done... And here I thought I was the impatient one! LOL

I see things so clearly sometimes, like moments etched in stone. Monday it was the salad at a little pizzeria down the street, the sweet tang of romaine lettuce with feta cheese and tomatoes and pieces of real bacon in a raspberry vinaigrette. Then yesterday, it was the sweet/salty taste of a new favorite, Mareblu's Blueberry Pomegranate Trail Mix Crunch, and the last rose blooming in front of what will soon be my home. Today I noticed the crisp early morning air coming through the door as DH went off to work.

I APPRECIATE so much being able to experience the simple things that make up daily living.

Even housework... or the lack thereof! LOL

I have a thousand things to do, and I'm eager... and some day I will even have the energy to do it all! LOL

I love my life, I love SP, I love all of you...

Life is good!

    Hey Beautiful Lady,

    I was so happy to read this. It sounds like you're on the right road. Don't beat yourself up about the added weight, just start again, the same way we all do. I'm glad you will be moving into a place of your own. You are truly an inspiration to me. Take care of yourself, and stay happy my friend.

    Sending you love and lots of hugs emoticon
