Well, I got the green light! Woohoo, I am a happy girl. At least about being able to train for a sprint triathlon.
emoticon emoticon emoticon

Doc says the knee is healing very well. Next check up in April. I can start doing some preliminary training, but to work up to it slowly. I am totally okay with this. In April I can bump up the training and I have his blessing to do a sprint in May. The event I was looking at was in July or August, so all is good!

In other news, life just sucks right now. (warning, a rant is coming) I already have 2 jobs, I need to find another. The big B word was used today (Bankruptcy) and I am sick over the possibility of that. Hormones are raging (pre-menopausal, so says my dermatologist) and causing me to be a raging beeyotch, cranky, moody and downright depressed lately. I am not fun to be around. Feeling completely disconnected from everything and everyone. I miss my mom terribly when I get like this. I really have no friends that I hang with, so you get the brunt of my rant (sorry). I am really hoping that most of this is hormones?

On a completely different note, and a better one at that, my daughter had her first cheer competition this weekend. I was so excited for her! It was fun and welcome break from the chaos we call life right now. I promise, I am okay, I am exercising, which helps with my mood A LOT. Just needed to get that out.

My girl is the one standing in the middle at the end of the routine :)

    I miss you!!! I'm here - I'll try to be more in touch. My husband was out of town in your neck of the woods most of last week, so my whole schedule was off. It is hard picking up all the stuff he is normally in charge of! In addition, I can't sleep when he is gone (even just typing that makes me feel totally pathetic) and so I've been channeling all your feelings here in Texas - homonal and sleep deprived. No fun.

    I'm so sorry about the financial stuff. It sounds like a real challenge, but I have a lot of faith that you are creative and able to come up with a strategy that will work. I'm sending you many hugs and warm thoughts.

    It is a good place to rant!!

    Obviously things are bad financially for people in a lot of countries. We have too many mortgages, taken out in the good times and I too often worried about paying them and what would happen if we couldn't. So one day I sat down at thought about what was the worst that could happen if the worst came to the worst. So I faced my fears and thought about it and decided that it would not be the end of the world. I would still have all the things that mattered most to me!

    Sometimes good can come from bad situations!!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Ya baby! I knew it! It is the perfect combo and the distance is reasonable! I have been seriously dealing with the hormonal chaos for about 3 years. What works wonders for me is a supplement called DIM-plus by natures way It is an Estrogen Metabolism Formula supplement. It is all naturally made. (Broccoli) The dietitian at the hospital I work at was telling me about it when my symptoms became severe. (I even wanted to get away from myself!) It has changed my life. And I have to laugh because to my husband it is the most important thing in the house. He orders it online for me before it runs out. I think he has been ready to kill me a few times too! Ha! Love the Cheer leading competition picture! Looks amazing. Those kids are so flexible and fearless! emoticon Way to grow a healthy kid! Hope you have a good day. Congrats again on the Tri.

    Rant away, we all know I do! Get it out, happy to listen and help.

    Sorry about your troubles, just know you are not alone and I'll keep you in my thoughts.

    You've gotten some great news on the training front - that has to make you happy. And your daughter's cheer-leading picture is terrific. I hope they did well.

    No need to apologize for a rant. Do what you gotta do; we're here to support you, even if all we can do is lend a sympathetic ear.

    Sorry things are rough on the financial front. It seems like money stress always bleeds into other aspects of our lives and won't stay in its corner where it belongs. It makes every other stress that much more difficult to work through. But you've gotten some sound advice. Focus on the positives--your knee! your daughter!--and the rest will seem less overwhelming.

    Hugs. Many hugs.

    I have gone through the B word. It stinks. There is light at the end of the tunnel! You have a great mindset. You will be ok!

    My daughter was in a few of those cheer competitions several years ago. Very exciting to see them out there.

    Keep focusing on the positive! We are all here for you!!

    Life is so much brighter when we focus on the things that really matter.
    Focus on this picture in your blog and I'm sure all your other worries will be minimized in a second!
    Great news on the doctor's update! Take it slowly and everything will be fine.
    Have a beautiful day!
