Asbestos Adventure, part 3

Tuesday, July 17, 2007

Well, I feel like I have been away for a long time... I've been staying on task as much as possible, recording all my food and making the best choices of what is available to me.
Bob and I are staying at his mom and stepdad's, the home where he grew up, in his old room. Coincedently, yesterday was my hubby's 59th B-day, and today is his mom's 79th B-day. Oh, and tomorrow is our 7th wedding anniversary. It's WEIRD WEIRD WEIRD!!!
Normally we'd be on vacation for this birthday-anniversary week, but with my daughter's wedding in August, we're taking a vacation in September instead.
Our apartment isn't cleared yet, the air filtration pumps are still going; so we're waiting on the enviro company to finish up (they had said Monday morning, but it's later on Tuesday already), and inspectors to check it out. We didn't bring enough clothes!!!
I'm at my daughter's work (the main office) again, and so thankful to get back on the computer. I was going to go to the library yesterday to use the computer and do paperwork; instead, I went to a park and worked in the beautiful shady outdoors to do my papers, and then I went swimming for the first time in months! It was WONDERFUL!!!
For dinner, my MIL made meatloaf, a baked potato for me (they eat beans and tortillas) and, following my DH's suggestion, a big pot of steamed veggies (they're not vegetable eaters). After they each took a little bit, they said "the rest's for you" (I had three cups!). On top of the 105 minutes in the pool, it was the perfect ending - with, of course, birthday cake too.
I am amazed at how strong I feel mentally. After all the chaos and upheaval this past month, and feeling so stymied and stuck especially emotionally, I didn't expect to feel like I was back on solid ground until we were settled into our apartment again. As it is, when I got the call this afternoon that everything is on hold, and there's no end in sight as far as when the work will be completed
I was still okay. I know it's because of the SparkPeople site, my teammates, and knowing support is there for me even if I can't get online. Well, off to catch up my trackers!
Take care, Elizabeth

    I cannot believe how awesome you are being about the who thing! I would be totally stressed out right now...you are doing a great job staying on top of your emotions. Good luck and hopefully you can return home really soon.
