The coming month
Friday, February 01, 2013
February has always been one of my favorite months. It tends to be a month with more snow in it, it's my birthday and I still think birthdays are way cool (and people said I wouldn't think that one I edged closer to 30), there is Valentine's Day, and chocolate. It's just a good month in my opinion.
This year, it might be tougher. It's a short month with an awful lot going on. I have my yearly exam, well past a year. I have an orthodontist appointment to have impressions done so I can get braces on (again - I didn't like it the first time when I was a kid) later in the month. This is in preparation for jaw surgery 9-12 months later. A dentist appointment before they put the braces on. I don't like poking and prodding above the neck. I've given birth 2 out of 3 times without meds, but anything involving my mouth, hurts. A lot. Consequently, I tend to work myself up a bit before these appointments.
Because my birthday is this month, I also have to re-new my driver's license. This time around, I need to have my picture taken. I really dislike having my photo taken. Tomorrow morning I also need to mail out a package for my son's birthday. His is the 9th and since he's away at school, I figure a care package is in order.
My daycare provider, who is also a very good friend, is going out for a few weeks starting the 22nd - hysterectomy. We have a plan a-c for the daycare situation, but I'm at a loss as to what to do for my friend. Meals? GIft basket of fruit, sweet treats, trashy romance novels? Not sure.
What concerns me most though, is just sticking with my goals. Being that busy, having the schedule thrown and the worry that goes with it, makes it so easy to make excuses. I've done well. Last night, I didn't even get the chance to start the C25K training until after 7PM and when you get up as early as I do, that feels pretty late. But I did it. I just have to keep that drive going.
