Off to a Good Start....Sort of

I had every intention of getting back to at least weekly blogging, but for some reason, that has not come to pass. To be honest, I forgot about it! LOL It wasn't until I received an email from a comment that I remembered. Sheesh.

What's going on in GC's world? Well, I just got over a nasty illness. Won't go into details for the TMI-squeamish crowd, but I needed antibiotics and I am finally back on my feet after spending days on the couch. The worst part of being sick is the guilt I feel about not being able to take care of things or the people in the house. It's an illness, and the reason I did not take care of myself when I first started with the symptoms. I feel so badly when I can't do for my son and husband. They rely on me, right? And I don't like to rely on anyone. But the pain became too much on Sunday and I finally called a doctor Monday morning. After two days of meds, I am back in action. And I managed to clean and do some laundry last night to assuage my guilt.

Speaking of guilt, I have not yet started my daily workout routine as instructed by the doctor to help get my levels regulated. Besides changing my diet (which I am SLOWLY doing, btw) I am supposed to walk or do some routine for at least 10 minutes a day. Her suggestion was to find something that my husband also found entertaining. Guess you can all guess what that was! LOL But she means walking, swimming, bike riding...you know, traditional exercise :) Gotta get on that.

Good news though is I did manage to lose weight with the small changes I have made thus far. So there is still hope for me! Haha.

There are many things that I still need to do. And for some reason, I have been dragging my feet doing them. I need to get a copy of Gameboy's records from his neurologist about the Asperger's. Then I need to meet with his school (who conveniently forgot all about me) and make sure his needs are addressed next year. I will also need to determine what steps I want/need to take with the school district. I am not sure an IEP is necessary, because academically he is doing great, but he seems to flourish with individualized testing. That may be something to push for.

I also need to have my foot looked at - the heel is really bothering me since I broke the ankle and I suspect some form of tendon damage. I just hobble around on it now since some days are way better than others. I know, I know. I need to do it.

I just can't motivate myself. You know what? I just want some real "downtime". You know, the time where nothing needs to be done, nothing goes wrong, nothing is expected of me. Just time to be. Just time to relax and enjoy the finer things in life. I am hoping that we will get that opportunity when we go to Michigan this year. Only a few more weeks! I can't wait. It will be awesome.

Well, better get back to what I am supposed to be doing. Hope all is well in your world! XoXo
