Long Time, No See!

Thursday, March 16, 2017

I've been totally underwater since we returned from walking The Camino. I didn't know that I could be "sustained busy" -- I'm still working 50 - 70 hpw. I have this fantasy that I can catch up...

Weight-wise, I've put on a few pounds, but my clothes fit well. I haven't been able to do much walking, between work and the lousy weather, but Daylight Savings just happened, which opens up more possibilities.

I've been feeling "wrong" for months, and decided that I'd better have my thyroid and vitamin D checked, rather than to blame it all on The Election. I don't think that thinning hair is due to politics. Found our that my thyroid is low again, and that my D is reeeeeaaaly low again, so I'm on my way back "up" (this is all new. I finally made myself go to the doctor. I was feeling really lousy, and, for once, put myself first). My doctor told me not to stress about my weight -- it's ok (but not OK in my head, thank you. I am still 10 pounds over my goal weight that I achieved when my son got married 2 years ago).

I've been working from home since yesterday, due to PDT treatment for precancerous skin lesions, and have gotten a lot of stuff done. Amazing what I can accomplish when no one bugs me.

The kids are fine. My son, who is the best son on earth, is (finally) working as an environmental scientist for the State. His wife is back at the Capitol, and is a legislative director for a senator. They are very happy.

My daughter has been preparing to apply for a teaching credential program. She is very excited, and has her interview for the program tomorrow.

And they will all be here this weekend.

Thanks for hanging in with me, even when I'm off the radar -- xoxoxo

    OH my goodness! I FEEL your thyroid and Vit. D. situations for sure . . . . dealing w/both myself. Sucky! BUT glad you're on the way up. Me, too. I am shocked @ what a difference Vit. D makes but hey, that's a simple fix, and it works, so THAT'S the good thing.

    i figured you were pretty much under water but hope things slow down.

    Glad your DS has a good position and wishing your DD so much luck.

    HUGS and MISSED YOU, girl.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day. Hoist a green one! emoticon

    Been nuts here, too. Both parents in a care facility. Ummmm . . . can you say, have to stay on top of things all the time. It's not a bad facility, but things just go better when they kow they'll be seeing my bright and shining face daily. Works. So, that's what I do.

    Welcome back!

    So impressed you did El Camino. My son and his girlfriend walked it two years ago. Then my son's girlfriend did the whole AT last summer!

    It's understandable you took a break after such an adventure!
