Oh my friends, I sure have missed you! I can't believe I have only been off line for just one measly week. Each day went by so S L O W L Y. Not to be able to read because of my retina issue has been far harder than I imagined. Not to even answer a text on my phone was torturous, LOL. My husband was very helpful.
There was an upside to this week, though. I stayed on track with my eating. My kitchen is cleaner than it's been in years. I went through my closet and tried on blouses that don't pull at the buttons, and can fit into pants I haven't worn in at least a decade, and a skirt that was once too tight literally fell onto the floor when I tried it on again this past week. I spent time in contemplation and prayer. The lack of stimuli even encouraged my hard heart to soften toward people in my life I was pretty sure I would have bad feelings for, for the rest of my life.
Being forced to be away from the computer reminded me that I still need to work on balance in my life.
I start physical therapy for my back, tomorrow. I am looking forward to getting strong again! And I can't wait to catch up with you, my Sparkfriends, too. It's so nice to be back "home". I still have five more weeks where my retina needs healing, and I go back to the doctor again in two weeks, but I am hopeful that this time all will be well.
I missed my Sparkpeople!
