There you have it. In my own handwriting… my favourite quote. The one that has got me through so much in my life.
I wrote this letter to my son ummmmmm five or six years ago I think as he left to begin an adventure in Melbourne. It was so far away from us and we weren’t sure whether he would be able to last the distance. But he did. And we’re so proud of him.
Last night he messaged me that he had found this letter amongst his things and posted it to my It Goes On FB page. How fantastic is that?
Here we are in the middle of the week. I believe they call it Hump Day because once you’re over it, you’re on the downhill to the weekend. I find each day just blends into the next anyway so it’s just another day in the week. Actually Wednesdays are generally hectic at work as it is a group day and the buildings are filled with staff and clients. I’m so pleased for my early finish on Wednesdays.
Health wise – I had a doctor’s appointment late yesterday. She called me because of some abnormalities with the last lot of bloods taken. Now, we are monitoring my kidneys! It never rains but it pours apparently. I spoke with her about all the other issues I’ve been having. She is of the same opinion as the ENT that I need to live with the tinnitus and the balance issues I have developed. No. I don’t have a brain tumour (huge sigh of relief there). My eyes have been tested and the optometrist confirmed that yes, my eyesight had indeed deteriorated in the few months since my last visit. No. There are no underlying causes behind my eyes. Hopefully my new glasses will arrive this week and ease some of those issues there. No. I don’t have diabetes. Yes. I am otherwise quite healthy.
I just keep living each day and doing the best that I can.
I have begun my study. Last night was my first live webinar and I rushed home from the doctor’s to log onto the computer in time. As I pulled up to my driveway, the button wouldn’t open the roller door. *sigh* The battery must have died in it. Then I spotted one of our neighbours and her son walking up our path. Curious and curiouser. The GG and the Tween came out to meet them and they were pointing at something down the street. Apparently we were on low power – some things were running but lights and other stuff wasn’t. The GG had just gone out to shut down the power in the box because not running on full power can blow some stuff apparently.
Phew! I don’t need to replace the battery in the garage door opener.
Damn! My webinar starts in half an hour!
Full power came back on at the start of the webinar. However because the wi-fi had been rudely interrupted, it took several re-boots to get the internet back!! Late start on the webinar. 😳
I received my study plan last night for the first part of my study and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. There is so much to it. I know I can do it. I just keep telling myself this.
I have ideas for my book running through my head. I am working on re-writing my original proposal. I jot down notes during my lunch break at work.
I have to finish re-writing a short story I’ve been working on for some time and submit it as well. I’ve already missed one deadline for one story, now I’m working on another.
You know how Dory in Finding Nemo sings “Just keep swimming”. I’m chanting “Just keep busy”. Because when I am busy I am doing okay. I am not focusing on what is not going right in my life. I am being pro-active.
Today is Wednesday!!!! Bring it on.
