Turning It Around

Yes - 2 posts in like an hour.  Who am I?  But I was looking at that last post and the whining going on and I've decided to turn it around ala "Holly style."  All part of the looking for the silver lining and working towards contentment. New comments in Blue.

Wow...I've posted every day this week.  It's been awhile since I've done that but I'm happy to be getting things out there again and so happy that I have people who follow along and leave me comments and email me...makes me feel loved.  

My daughter's early kindergarten assessment went alright I think.  I'm really lucky to live in a school district that wants to make sure that kids that go to kindergarten early have the necessary skills to be successful and that they're so willing to provide some guidance to parents like me who really don't have a clue.  

So remember the pain that took me to the ER back in March?  Well, it came back last night.  I didn't want to go back to the doctor as they never really figured out what caused it the first time.  The doctor had said all they could see on the MRI was some irritation around the band.  So I'm assuming that's what it is again.  So I took a Tylenol with Codeine and promptly fell asleep on the couch.  I'm so lucky that I still had some of the left over meds from my procedure last month and insurance allowed me to have it checked out earlier so I know it's nothing too serious.  Also, my couch is suprsingly comfortable for a clearance center buy!   Did I call in today?  Nope.  I'm really dedicated to my job and my work.  I've been here 8 years and overall, my company has been pretty good to me.  While I have sick days I can use, I prefer to save them for when my kids need me.  I'm lucky to work in such a flexible group taht if I start feeling worse later in the day, I can just go home.  

So since joining the gym, I have gone zero times.  But I joined...that was step 1.  I'm doing my best. 

It was a really great week to JOIN the gym as Hubby had the money to pay for it.  Next week will be a great week to GO to the gym. This week is so busy!  Between the cable guy (I'm so lucky to have internet and cable again...I admit I missed it for the year or so we went without it), the assessment, the birthday shopping (I think I picked out stuff Maddie's going to love this year!), the inlaws (Maddie will be so excited they made it here for her birthday!), and the birthday parties this weekend (So blessed to be able to give my daughter 2 fun filled days for her birthday!)

Things are already looking up, yes?

The other post was in no way whiny at least I didn't read it that way. And your new post is brilliant, great way to turn things positive. That b-day party sounds like it will be a lot of fun. Good luck with the gym next week :D can't wait to read more about it
