Well, 2010 is already shaping up to be a very busy year! In the next 3 weeks I already have 7 scheduled medical appointments with acupuncture, pain clinic, oncology, and nutrition! The pain patch was a 36 hour relief from my pain, but has stopped working, way too soon! I guess I celebrated too early! Between pain and nausea I have only put in about 20 hours of work a week for the past two weeks! How is this going to pay the bills!? Especially since I JUST BOUGHT A HOUSE!!!!! Woo-Hoo! I close on my house this coming FRIDAY! Yeah! Time to get out of this apartment (or "box" as the kids refer to it!) Can't wait to have a driveway to scoop and a lawn to mow!!! It might seem like a pain, but believe me, you miss it when you don't have it!
Relay Kick-Off is this Tuesday! I am particularly excited this year, as I am the Co-Chair for our event! That is a BIG responsibility with a Relay our size, but I am very excited to be taking on this challenge and working closely with the our Relay Chair, Jackie! I am also traveling to Austin TX in two weeks to speak at the Central Texas Relay University! This will be a great way to get back into the groove of Relay and to connect with many of my extended Relay family members!!! ....and then traveling again the end of February to Dallas TX for Relay Leadership Weekend! YEAH HOH WORKGROUP!!!! We have a lot to do!!! I kinda feel like Texas is my second home! Unfortunately they are not that much warmer than us right now!
Bring on 2010! I can take it!!
What am I thankful for?!?! Friends and family that have patience with me. When I am in pain I do not like to be around other people. It is too difficult. Thank you for giving me space. I promise that when I get this pain under control I will become social again, but right now I only have the ability to handle my responsibilities: kids, medical, work, house, and relay! Love to you all!
