A little peek . . .

We had a group photo taken at work Thursday . . . the same day of the latest "blizzard." It almost felt as if we only went to work to take the photograph! lol We were allowed to go home at 11:00 because the weather was just so bad! Driving home I had to pull over three times and scrape the ice off the wipers! That is bad . . . for Lubbock anyway . . . no plows . . . completely unprepared for this kind of weather that is only normal in NH . . . no shovel . . . no rock salt or sand . . . just being sent home to wait out the weather! And yet . . . I found a friend willing to come pick me up in this miserable weather to have dinner and drinks with! Couldn't work but was able to spend time with a friend! lol I find that amusing . . . on the other hand . . . since the accident . . . I promised myself I would take care of friendships before work . . . and I did! :) Anyway, I thought I would share a post-surgery picture. Stitches were taken out Wednesday . . . just in time for the mandated photograph. Guys at the office all said I looked nice but then . . . they all love me! Why would they say anything different? Then we come to find out Friday morning that we have to take the photograph again! On Tuesday! I am fine with that . . . I will be more healed and bruising and swelling will not be so noticable. :) Anyway, here is a peek at my healing . . .
I am starting to be able to see myself in the mirror when I have a look these days . . . if you can follow that thought! For weeks now, everytime I looked in the mirror . . . I didn't recognize the face that looked back! :( I am starting to see the old me in the mirror! I am very happy about that! :)

I am so HAPPY!

If it weren't for my heavy shoes . . . I would be floating on air! I am so happy to finally have the surgery behind me . . . I feel that this is the beginning of the end . . . I can see . . . I am no longer afraid to drive . . . I can now see my blind spot . . . I am all swollen and bruised but that will be over soon . . . compared to waiting for the surgery anyway . . . I can honestly say that I am ready to accept whatever the future holds for me and my face . . . I really am so happy that I can see!

The only downfall is that I do not have my beloved prodigal daughter to share this with . . . but really . . . that is not anything new . . . I will have to be patient and wait for the great equalizer! :)

What Happened?

I realized today as I sat watching hours of TV . . . today is the second half of January! This year was going to be better than last . . . I was to accomplish more than I have over the past few years . . . not sure what happened?

Well, ok, I am waiting to have surgery that I feel has my life on hold . . . but I am not sure why! My face is only one part of who I am! I am still the fun-loving, funny, lovable gal I have always been . . . with maybe a little more patience . . . a little more kindness . . . a little more understanding . . . a little more tolerant . . . a little more forgiving! I do not understand why I feel I should put my life on hold because one of my eyes is a little fallen. According to an opthamologist . . . it is fixable . . . and if it is fixable . . . there really isn't anything wrong with me!

Well, ok, I am recovering from a bad cold that has kept me indoors all this weekend. But this should not have kept me from accomplishing great things within my home! I have things that need fixing . . . things that need hanging . . . things that need cleaning! On the other hand, I have been pumping myself full of Thera-flu so that I can be well for the upcoming surgery that I feel has my life on hold. It is important that I take care of myself!

Anyway, next time you see me . . . if I am sitting down doing nothing . . . please . . . pull the chair out from under me! I have LOTS of living left to do and I do not want to put it off any more!

This is the year that I will accomplish so much . . . I will live more . . . I will do more . . . I will be more . . . I will love more!
