A lot did not go as planned this week!
No anniversary picnic; it rained; and I ended up
at a medical appt because of what is most likely
sciatica. Not what I figured would happen at 44 years of age;
actually it was happening at least at 43 but it got a bit
worse this week so everything changed course;
I am looking at PT now in the future and more appts.
It's not debilitating pain but was worsening to the point
where I could not ignore it.
So I was going to have a meal tomorrow
but we had to postpone that too; it's a lot of work to
do a meal right, even when you have learned many ways
to make things simple.
I have not even changed my summer tablecloth yet
nor tidied much.
My Husband has been helping with dishes; I am having
very hot baths to try to feel better. Boy am I so
BLESSED to have my Husband and also good medical
insurance. We may redo the picnic in about a month's time
if the weather is good; I even know what date I would pick for it.
We are going to eat some of the food that I got meanwhile
and that is a very cheery thing; simple sandwiches that are easy
to make sounds like just the thing right now.
My Husband gave me two books for our anniversary!
(He got some minatures for his gift, a knight on foot and another
warrior on horseback; but he does not want me to share
pictures so that's that.)
Mr Husband has also put up some more pictures in his office
and in our hallway and I am very pleased with the progress.
I am hoping to redo the meal we had planned for early October on the
Sunday before Canadian Thanksgiving.
I am quite relieved not to have it now as it became too much
for me to do but I really feel I have a good path forward
and learning some stretches will help greatly and
I will be more functioning again.
Also lesson learned, I think, of giving myself more space in the week
to prepare for a meal. This week ended up
being too crowded so that when I suddenly had a flare in my
lower back and an unexpected medical appt, it put me
behind in such a way that doing the meal would have
only done me in instead of being that which I most love to do.
I am dreaming of that meal still to come and also
wishing for a fun tea party at my house one day,
I know some of my NJ friends would love that.
So I am feeling quite glad about things.
Anyway, thanks if you read this long and God bless and keep you!
