4 weeks (and back on shpilkes!)

  • Posted on August 25, 2014 at 4:11 pm

We close 4 weeks from today. We tentatively have movers scheduled for the Saturday after that. But as of Thursday, there’s “some complications” with my remote working request. So we’re back sitting on shpilkes (pins and needles) and trying to figure out a Plan B. In the meantime, I’m trying not to lose my mind. My body, however, is still in the anxiety-riddled phase of dealing with this, so EVERYTHING is flaring- the IBS, the¬†eczema, the sciatica and of course the insomnia, even with the sleeping meds. It’s a joy to be me right now. Not!

Last week was a mixed bag, culminating in significant suckiness. First, was the Thursday bombshell from my boss- for which I may have an update tomorrow at the earliest. Second was the death of a friend on Friday. The sudden death of someone who was about our age, with no illness or reason, has been oh so hard to process. It’s the senselessness of the loss, the gaping hole they leave in the lives of those around them, that has always been so hard for me to process.

Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.” – Dylan Thomas

Dan, your spirit and kindness, your sense of humor and friendship, will live on as your legacy through those who have known you. This world and our lives are a darker place without you. What is remembered, lives.

Breakfast: house iced coffee with soy milk, cinnamon pecan special K with soy milk

Lunch: bagel with tuna salad, carrots

Walks: 4/10, 1/10, 2/10, 4/10- before lunch; 5/10, 4/10

Goal for this week: 1+ mile per day, 3/10 non-stop

And holy crap! How did I walk two, TWO miles today?!? I guess that’s what happens when there are no meetings on my calendar. Go me!
