An Update

The doctor’s words were definitely not what I wanted to hear. They stung as well as my eyes when I teared up at the news that although they put me in a so-called walking boot, I am not to bear weight on it for 6-8 weeks. That means no driving, no work, no pool, no helping anyone, and depending on my husband to help me. I’m not a happy camper right now, but as my hubby says, “It is what it is.”

Knee surgery is postponed, worker’s comp case is postponed, because I can’t do my therapy right now.

At times like these it is hard to look on the bright side and easy to find the blame or feel guilty for winding up in this position. Why, for instance did this happen. Why did I walk into a dark room and adjust the temperature instead of turning on the light? Why didn’t I pick up the dog’s bones, toys, etc. before going to bed? Never mind that I’ve done it a hundred times with no consequence, but the fact that I was already injured probably didn’t help matters.

I will use this time to write more, and I’m taking a free editing class that C. Hope Clark recommended in her newsletter. I’m so exited, I want to add editing as a service I can offer so this is fortunate! The class is a teaser for the Master Class which will cost money I can’t afford right now, yet there is lots of useful info that will help me I’m sure! Diving right in today! Why wait, got all the time now.

Of course, I have lots of other writing projects as well, so I will make the time for those too.

I of course feel blessed to have a caring husband, friends, and family-they all keep me uplifted and positive, even when I’m down on myself. I appreciate my husband so much, he was already overwhelmed and I just add more to his plate with my situation. Like my son just said, when it rains it pours.

Appreciate your circumstances, they can change in an instant!

Happy Monday!
