A quick reminder to those of you who participated in last month’s Moving Mountain’s Challenge, tomorrow is the 7th, which means I’ll be having my monthly update post, so bring on your progress reports!
I am in one of those moods where I have a lot to say, but having difficulties trying to put my thoughts together; don’t you just hate that? I have 3 posts in draft but none of them makes much sense even to me at the moment, so there they’ll sit until I have more time to tweak them into more coherent sentences. In the meantime, please accept this Dumping Ground post where you’ll quickly notice that I’m jumping from topic to topic in record speed.
Do any of you remember that episode of Seinfeld when George’s father used a mantra to help him calm down? Every time he felt like he was going to blow his top he’d scream out from the top of his lungs Serenity Now! I am feeling a bit like Frank, lately. I am off the anxiety meds that I was taking and am a bit discouraged to try anything else at the moment, so I’m attempting to use some calming techniques until I feel prepared enough to give miracle drug number 6 a whirl.
My husband’s mother’s house finally sold after almost 10 months on the market. The new owners want occupancy on July 1st, which doesn’t give us much time to clear out the house. Serenity Now! While his job will be to team up with his sister and move things out, my job will be trying to make room for the things that will inevitably end up making their way over here until he has time to go through them. I’ve already taken 2 (yes, two) truckloads of items to Goodwill. Most of the items were furniture I’d retrieved from dumpsters over the years that have been waiting to be made beautiful. It was tough letting those things go, but I made a vow: anything that hadn’t been touched in 2 years was heading out the door.
I am happy to report that my weekend was a good one; I spent time with my Mom at the rehabilitation center; she is finally beginning to feel better after a rough couple of weeks. Her first post-surgery doctor’s appointment is on the 13th where they will take an x-ray to see if there have been any changes. We could potentially see some bone growth in the x-ray but the doctor said that we could wait for up to 3 full months before seeing any progress. Still, we’re hopeful.
Have a good Monday, everyone. Please forgive me if you don’t see me commenting as much on your blogs these next couple of weeks; rest assured that I am reading though, and if there’s anything you think I would find particularly interesting please let me know. I don’t like the idea of being out of touch with you all but must remember this is temporary. Serenity Now!
