I for one am very excited to sleep in tomorrow. I feel like I’m trying to swim through molasses. I have only worked three days this week, but I.AM.EXHAUSTED. I thought it would be easy to get to work, sit at my desk, and do my job. Wrong! It takes an exceptional amount of energy and I turn into a pumpkin at 7:30pm. No joke.
The upside is I am less depressed. More frustrated, but less depressed. Sounds like an oxymoron. But it feels good to be an active participant in society; going to work each day and doing my job. It is pretty frustrating though, especially when I realized how many doors there are. Doors are impossible! How am I supposed to push open a big glass door while crutching through it? Also, it rained today, so I got wet. There is no way to carry an umbrella and crutch.
I am such a Debbie Downer these days. I start saying something positive and end up complaining! Let’s turn this blog around. I am lucky to be surrounded by so many loving people who are making my situation much easier. You know who you are. And I keep telling myself: this isn’t permanent. There are many people dealing with permanent and more severe injuries. I need to shut out that negative voice and channel the positive one.
Thursday Night Loves & Laughs
Last night, my dear friend JC took me on a date! We went to this adorable South African wine bar two steps from the apartment. It was cozy and romantic; perfect spot to catch up. My spirits were lifted; thank you for a great night, JC!
When I got home, I had this picture waiting for me. It’s a sneak peak of my nephew’s photo shoot. You all know I’m obsessed with him, but how could I not be? Look at K’s little face!
|Tad blurry since it’s a pic of a pic…but too cute!|
Then I got this text…
|From MQ – my sister and K’s beautiful Mummy.|
|Somebody learned to crawl and is headed straight to the good stuff!|
I laughed so hard. He looks so pleased with himself! What a cutie. How can I complain about a broken ankle when I have pictures like these coming my way?!
Tonight I will eat, drink and be merry with LC. Then it’s relaxation central for me alllll weekend.
What are you all up to?
