So, how am I? Well, I managed about 3.5 hours of sleep last, but we’re short-staffed so I’m at work today. I forgot that I needed to restock my purse with lactaid yesterday, so pizza for dinner was unusually consequential. My hair has started falling out again (I see the endo in two weeks- I suspect a dosage bump is coming my way), and I can’t wear my ankle splint with my new work shoes, which is proving to be more of a problem than I thought it would. Time to reschedule with the ortho. Also, the numbness in my hands is getting worse again, so I’m breaking down and ordering the elbow splints for sleeping in at night. Wish me luck!
Yeah, it’s a Monday.
In good news, people are being very sweet for my birthday this year (figuratively, and literally!). Mom sent me a box of my favourite chocolates, and other-Mom baked me a carrot-cake-birthday-cake! Mom also ordered me some galoshes I’ve been eyeing, and a bookcase! SIL surprised me with gift card which will cover a second bookcase, and we’ll buy a third on our own. Yay, books finally out of boxes! Mom2 also gave me a tea-and-bath basket- yay, pampering! We also received a “just in case” blue storm tarp (they weren’t sure we had any- sillies! I’m a camper! But I only had three, so one more is good!) And a thank-you tin of Dutch crisps for car-sitting while family were on vacation. It was a gifty weekend!
Work is starting to settle down, and maybe I’ll actually remember that I have plans coming up this weekend (I forgot two weekends in a row with two different groups- thankfully, everyone is very understanding that I am a flake and it’s not personal!)
And my quote for the week- I need to post this somewhere to remind myself:
“In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.”
