Hi all! Just a post as an update from me, as I know I’ve been pretty sporadic since the holidays.
Of course, the holidays were a little rough, being the first without my Grandma. We didn’t always see her on holidays but she pretty much always sent homemade candy and all of us cousins missed having that this year. Daddy said the prayer for Christmas dinner and was asking the Lord to bless all of our family, and it just came out – bless Grandma and Pops… we all just let the moment pass but we all caught it and all caught our breath.
Speaking of Pops, he was here this past weekend! He came to the funeral of a cousin of his (if I’ve ever met that cousin I don’t remember it) and stayed at my parents’ house for a couple of days, him and my aunt. I’m so glad we got to see them and hug their necks. Our transportation hasn’t been what it was so I haven’t been able to get back and forth to Lubbock as often as I’d hoped. But that’s how it was when Grandma was alive, too….
The flu has been so bad here in our little town that they shut down the public school and all the practices and games and things for a full week. My kids had had a mild virus of some sort, with fever and whiney being their only symptoms before that. Now I’ve got some sort of head cold with NO fever that’s making a pest of itself. Pray for us!
I also fell down… I guess it was only last week, and caught myself with my left hand. When I did, I messed something up in my upper arm, possibly my rotator cuff. I’m still recovering from that. Doctor said it’s not broken, to baby it for a couple of weeks, and prescribed some pain meds. She also instructed me to talk to my regular doctor about how much NSAIDs I’m taking on a regular basis and thinks I should increase my fibro meds so I can decrease my NSAID intake. I’ll probably just message him on the portal about that; she’s probably right.
ETA: I completely did not intend for this to be a whiney post! In my attempt to inform, I forget how much like complaining it sounds. My apologies! I should also add that this week I am feeling much better and am looking forward to hopefully getting a lot accomplished in all areas of life. I’m still learning my new normal but I generally get to have one super good week each month, so I anticipate this will be it. God is good, y’all, and I’m His, and He has good plans for me!!
I just wanted to say hi and get yall to watching again! I fully intend to fill in my missing letters for the alphabet series and to continue that, so keep an eye out! Thanks for reading!
