Recap, sort of...

Where do I start? It feels like ages since I really sat down and took some time to blog, to post something consistent… There are too many things going on and at the same time, nothing really worth posting about. Strange isn’t it?

Health wise, it’s the third morning in a row that I wake up pain free. This makes this blogger VERY happy. No headaches at all. It’s been months since that happened. I had six treatments of acupuncture, which helped, I can see the difference physically, plus last Sunday I started a steroids treatment for my constant migraine. It seems to be doing the trick. The main side effect to that last treatment is the fact that I’ve been “high” for the last five days, but hey, I feel no pain!

Work wise, I’ve been busy. Between my regular clients and starting a new one as well, added to the month-end joys. In between all this, I tried to ditch one, but that didn’t work. They decided to finally go for my recommendations and they’re still “on board”. Funny how some people only react when they have their backs against a wall. I don’t really enjoy doing that, pushing them against a wall that is, but it seemed necessary… Let’s see what the future hold…

Weather wise, it looks like Spring has sprung. Most of the snow is gone. I say most because there is still some left. But it’s not the nice fluffy kind, far from it. It’s all black and full of crap. It’s really disturbing to see those piles of detritus along the side of the road. In town it feels and looks like Spring, for sure. When I talk with my mom, who lives one-hour north on town, she still has feet of snow around her place.

Ever noticed how, as we age, we notice more the passage of time? I’ve realised that the other day, while gazing around during one of our drives. In a few weeks times nature took on a whole difference face. Only a few weeks ago all was white, and now tulips are popping out, buds everywhere, and within a few more weeks, maybe more like days, there will be leaves on the trees, and things around us will be green. And then we will forget how cold it was, and how much snow we’ve had to shovelled. When I think of this, I then realise that I am aging. I see time going by. I’m aware of it. It’s not a bad thing. Anyway, I don’t think it is.

Hm, we must be on the same wavelength because we've written about similar things today. One of the good things about living in the southern states is that by May, the snow is definitely GONE. Here's to having spring in full-force as soon as possible. Glad to hear you've been pain-free for a few days. That must feel fantastic! My mother used to have horrible migraines and could only take medication when she was going to sleep because otherwise she'd end up walking into things. Whatever she took made her very loopy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you'll be pain free without medication soon. :-)

And there was much rejoicing! I'm so happy to hear that you are feeling better. Here's to hoping it is not a fleeting thing. And the winter has been driven out down here, too. Today was the first day that it didn't cool down enough last night to open the windows and turn off the A/C. Ah well, it was nice while it lasted. :-)

Here's to the absence of pain.

Yay for being pain free!

I have some "stuff" to send you, but I seem to have lost your address. Can you email it to me again?
