Michael is on his way in!!! Finally. He could be here sometime Tuesday. I routinely avoid riding the roller coaster of his coming and going. This last time out proved why it is wise to avoid. I really rode it this time. Ugh. Until Florida freight evens out, I need to make the necessary adjustments to avoid it in more extreme circumstances too.
I am also feeling better. The impressive joint aching I got into with the low fat experiment is finally receding. My energy for things other than coping with pain is returning. I tend to isolate when I don't feel well since I don't care to spread the cranky around. I am typical for the zodiac sign of the crab, lol. My birthday is this Thursday -- I'll be a glorious 55 (54 wasn't bad either).
For all that dispatcher trouble, the upside is Michael will be here to take me out for a birthday dinner. We live in a kind of rubber trucker time so birthdays and the like are often not celebrated on specific days but more like when opportunity and mood strikes us. Once in a while, we get to make it happen on the calendar day.
I greatly appreciate the solidarity offered by all my Spark friends. Your care arrived safely delivered to my sore heart despite the distance in our geography. That felt like family. Sometimes when it is especially challenging, all I can do is trudge with head down chanting "this too shall pass, this too shall pass...." trusting it always does. And it does. You made that passing easier. Thank you, each one of you, very much.
Oh, I almost forgot (trucker time) --
Happy Father's Day to all the papas!
