Back in the Saddle Again

I’m hiding out in the bathroom. I mention this because it’s vital to my sanity at this time. I have both my daughters and the grand babies visiting and the oldest grandchild doesn’t want to take a nap. God help us all.  So while I’m the queen of my somewhat silent and tiny domain, I might as well fill you in on the latest.

I quit my job on July 1st. I had two doctors kindly explain to me that my job was killing me. So I’m in “recovery-mode” and doing much better now that I’m a not sitting for over 12 hours a day and getting some regular sleep. Both my neurologist and pain management doctors told me that I will have to make permanent lifestyle changes including NOT sitting for extended periods of time. I enjoyed working as a police dispatcher and have for a long time, but those days may be behind me now.  I’m not sure what to do next.  I guess the doors are wide open. 

Earlier this year, we added a second grand baby to the brood.  She is one of the cutest things I have ever seen.  She’s almost always happy and smiling. Her name is Stella and she’s definitely a bright, little star.  Jackson, her big brother is officially a toddler who is into EVERYTHING. I forgot about that particular joy and didn’t childproof the apartment quite like I  should have before everyone came down to the metroplex.  My bad. 

Let’s see… Aside from my medical issues, little has taken place that just floored me. However, the week before I left work, I lost my oldest sister due to stage 4 breast cancer.  It was the third time she had fought it in her life and this time it was just too much. She was just 69. I wish you could have met her; she was something else.  Stella kind of reminds me of her, which is a good thing. 

I suppose that’s really the major stuff for now. And as I have a bunch of time on my hands, you can expect a lot more from me in the days to come. 

Hope you have an outstanding day. Adieu.
