Navigated Waters . . .

15 Apr

Today was spent mired in a medical maze. Not my favorite kind of day. But, I was successful – I was able to get all of the orders to the right place so that I could schedule scans for tomorrow. No small feat, I might add.

After getting a brief break from the medical maze, I went back to my old office building to see some friends (former office mates) for an annual gathering we have been doing for a few years now. I actually started the gathering – something for which I am called “the instigator” . . . not sure if I like that name 🙂

Anyway, some of the people I saw today I had not seen in about 8 or 9 months. They did not recognize me, that was kind of weird. I know I look different. I have lost a lot of weight, my hair is a different color and length, but, still, it was pretty weird. And, in general, it was just hard to go back there. I had an office in the building for a while. I had friends there. I spent a lot of time there and now I don’t spend any time there.

It is good that the rhythm of work and life keep moving, but it is also hard to see that I am not a part of that work rhythm anymore. Everything marches on. I guess it is just a bit shocking to see how much my life has changed over the course of a little over a year now.

It is what it is. I don’t know when I will be able to get back to things. Certainly days like today and tomorrow make that difficult. But, I will get there. I am just so tired right now. I don’t sleep but a couple of hours a night – this has been the trend for a month or more now. I know things will improve once I am able to get more sleep at night.

Well, enough whining for one day!

Please continue to keep me in your prayers, I greatly appreciate it.

Much love,

Lisa

    Yeah! Enough whining for one day! Haha… You know I’m kidding; whine all you want! I look forward to the day when you’re done with all this and have nothing left to whine about. In the meanwhile, do what you must to stay sane.

    Love,
    Sandy

    Sanity, yeah, that might be a stretch 🙂

    The blog does help me with that though, at least borderline sanity, anyway 🙂

    Love,
    Lisa
