May 20, 2018: Sunday Thoughts

I’m currently reading the story ‘Our Kind of Cruelty’, by Araminta Hall. It’s labeled as a psychological thriller. I’m only 30 pages in, but I can already get the impression that the main character has a sinister aura. Quite entertaining. I’m slowly beginning to move around with my left foot. I’ve been heating and icingContinue reading “May 20, 2018: Sunday Thoughts”

May 19, 2018: Intense Joy and Sorrow

This has been a day of joy and mourning. We experienced joy by witnessing the union of Prince Harry and Meaghan Markle, now Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I didn’t get up super early to view the wedding, I watched the highlights and coverage throughout the day. It was truly moving to see a coupleContinue reading “May 19, 2018: Intense Joy and Sorrow”

May 18, 2018: Finally Finished ‘The Girl on the Train’

Due to a sprained ankle, I stayed home from work today. Although I received an Air Cast from the urgent care visit last night, it was still painful to walk, and I knew that I would be moving nonstop with the toddlers all day. So to promote healing, I stayed home. So I finally finishedContinue reading “May 18, 2018: Finally Finished ‘The Girl on the Train’”

May 17, 2018: Not So Lucky

I never thought I would sprain my ankle again by standing up, but it happened today. I moved to stand, but my left foot was asleep. I got up, and my foot went another direction. I went to an urgent care place and received an air cast. My ankle is very swollen though. And painful.Continue reading “May 17, 2018: Not So Lucky”

May 16, 2018: Progress in OT

Just completed my 3rd week in Occupational Therapy for my left hand/wrist. On Monday the OT applied Kinesio Tape around my left wrist, and along the area where the pain exists. Since I began therapy a few weeks ago, there’s been progress, as I can complete certain tasks at work without using my brace, suchContinue reading “May 16, 2018: Progress in OT”

May 15, 2018: Tuesday Thoughts

Such a rainy ride home! The lightning streaked across the sky in silver flashes. I have so many tasks to take care of for work, but I’m so exhausted at the end of the day. I was going to take care of a task after my shift finished, but the storm changed that. I beganContinue reading “May 15, 2018: Tuesday Thoughts”

May 14, 2018: Therapy and Diabetes Life

Week 3 of Occupational Therapy. So far I think it’s gone well; doing the hand exercises regularly, and taking part in activities that strengthen my wrist near the thumb. Today my OT wrapped my wrist in Kinesio Tape. It looks interesting, fits well to the skin. Hopefully it will stay on my arm and wristContinue reading “May 14, 2018: Therapy and Diabetes Life”

May 13, 2018: Sunday Thoughts

Some thoughts as I get ready for the week: I had a quiet Mothers Day celebration with Andy’s family. We went to Longhorn Steakhouse. It’s their ‘go-to’ place for Mothers Day, since Andy’s brother and sister-in-law loves this location. I have my annual Facebook ‘blackout’ on Mothers Day. As much as the posts are heartfelt,Continue reading “May 13, 2018: Sunday Thoughts”

May 11, 2018: Hopeful

I visited my grandfather today, after work. He said that he was moved from another floor earlier that day, and the swelling on his feet seemed to be returning. He’s hopeful to get discharged tomorrow though. Hopefully that will happen. Tomorrow I’ll be visiting my close friend in the hospital. Her health has taken aContinue reading “May 11, 2018: Hopeful”
