Good morning and happy freewrite Friday, where I set the timer for 10 minutes and write write write.
I feel good…finally!!…after almost a week of not sleeping well…waking at midnight, then hourly afterward…restless legs are back…and fatigue, despite eating well and exercise.
I called my hematologist and am scheduled Monday for a visit with him AND an iron infusion. HALLELUJAH! Yes, low iron. If you haven’t had yours checked and you have similar symptoms, I urge you to do so.
This morning while rummaging for my favorite undies (don’t snort; I know you stash stuff in your drawers too), I found a stack of mini-post-it notes on which my former girlfriend had written sweet sentiments. KAPOW! I had a sad heart moment, remembering our good times. I wondered when we started to go amiss…I suppose it doesn’t matter now, but I am curious to know when we began to break down. I allowed myself to have that moment, then moved on. It’s a relief not to get stuck. That is progress! In the past few months, if I’ve had one of those moments, I’ve stayed in it for days. Today it was less than an hour! I remind myself that just because I’m not stuck in sadness doesn’t mean the relationship wasn’t special. That helps me climb out of that pit.
I bought my first pair of reading glasses. My eye doc said not to be surprised if I started to need a +1 — I don’t really need them, but I think readers can be sexxxxxxy!!! So I got some. I see you shaking your head. It’s ok. You have quirks, too, and I love you.
I’m grateful for friends like Lisa Lu who will watch cool videos like this one, featuring spiders that really do dance. (Other friends begged off watching it, saying they would have nightmares.) I’m grateful for my bestie Tasha B to whom I can send silly unflattering photos of myself and she will send them back. I’m grateful for fathers who take the time to distract their daughters in creative, talented ways. Enjoy your weekend!
