Catching up

Okay, I need to catch you up. There is nothing exciting going on in my corner of the world, everything has been pretty calm. The results from the Dr. appointments were pretty good.
I need to work on my cholesteral with diet and excercise, my iron and vitamin D were really low so I am taking medication for that and will get retested in about 3 months. The thyroid is okay and the pap and mammogram were good. (really glad about that since it had been a while)
I am finally feeling better since having pneumonia, I was beginning to wonder if the meds would ever kick in and get rid of that stuff. I do think some of it might be allergies so I am going to try some OTC allergy medication.
I went to the eye doctor and am trying contacts, well just one. My distance isn't perfect but not bad so we are trying a contact for the reading. Doing the monovision thing. The first week was kind of a pain but I went back last Wednesday and got another trial contact that was one step up. Seems to work a little better and feels a whole lot better. I was actually able to get in on the first try the last 2 days. Darren was really amused watching me try to put my contacts in, I'm sure it was quite comical. He is a pro now since he started wearing them, he thinks contacts are the greatest invention on earth. He HATED wearing glasses. He is one reason I am trying the contact, he thinks that just because I am a grandma doesn't mean I should look like one. I have to admit that it is more convienant than glasses especially since I really only wore mine when I was reading or working on the computer.
No news on the job front, but I am dealing with that okay. There is a lot of stuff I need to do around the house, I just need to get started. I am not as tired as I was so all the medication is helping. Now..........I just need to get motivated! Any suggestions on how to do that?

Have a great week,

  1. I am sorry that I missed that you were sick. I had no idea. Glad you are feeling better now. I have never had pneumonia, but I have had bronchitis and I know how miserable I was with that. Be sure to get lots of rest because I know it's going to take your body a few more weeks to heal completely.

    As far as motivation...maybe make a small list (1-2 things) that you want to get done each day. Don't make a long list because that will be just overwhelming. If you do a little each day then it won't be so bad.

    Hang in there!!!
