Well I skipped right over doing this post in May as I kind of lost track of the month. So here's a currently post for the month of June!
Reading: Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell. It's a cute young adult book that we'll be discussing over on Emily's blog for our monthly book club (anyone and everyone is welcome to join, she posts discussion questions at the end of the month!). I am loving it so far!
Loving: being back home and close to family and friends.
Thinking: about taking golf lessons as one of Phil's best friends is a golf pro. I have clubs and tried to take lessons years ago but didn't care for the pro at the course where I went but I think I'd like working with Phil's friend.
Frustrated: by how difficult it is to move when you have a chronic illness. After the 'no one will give me a referral' experience, I ended up seeing my GP in Minneapolis so I could tell her I have RA so she could send me a referral to a rheumatologist. Which means I'll pay my 20% co-pay for a completely unnecessary doctor's appointment. And then getting my Enbrel (injection meds) prescription transferred? Unbelievably difficult. So. Many. Phone calls. I won't bore you with the details but it feels like dealing with health stuff is a part time job for me.
Feeling: like the old pre-Charlotte Lisa is mostly back. I didn't feel like myself for quite a long time so it's really great to be back to a state where positivity comes naturally and I have my spring back in my step.
Anticipating: the party at Phil's this weekend. I'm looking forward to hosting some of his friends and eating some good Mexican food! Hopefully the weather cooperates so we can be outside!
Watching: the Next Food Network Stars on Sunday nights, and not much TV besides that. I am cheering for Lenny as he seems quirky/fun but talented in the kitchen.
Sad: that I won't be training for a marathon with my running club. It's great to be back to running, of course, and I'm excited to train for my trail half with the group but it still bums me out that another marathon is very unlikely due to my stress fracture history/RA.
Working: on re-building a network at my new employer. Starting over is hard! I know quite a few people that work in the Minneapolis office, but there are a lot of other offices with sales reps that I need to get to know. I am hoping to visit some of the offices this summer.
Grateful: for my family, my friends, my health, and for the fact that I'm back in my happy place.
Listening: to very little music these days as I am back to barely being in the car (yea!).
Wishing: that I was better at sleeping. I fall asleep ok but staying asleep is a whole other issue. I've been waking up super early (like 3:30-4) and then not really falling back into a deep sleep (or back to sleep at all) which is just annoying. My bedroom doesn't have curtains or blinds so I am hoping that once I hang some and have a darker room I will sleep better.
What are you currently reading, anticipating, and grateful for?
