48 and counting

Ok, technically, I am at the moment 47 and counting, but tomorrow is my birthday.  I don’t feel bad about turning 48, just puzzled – how did I get here?  Seems like just yesterday (some days anyway) that I was 18 and heading off to college.  Sigh.  Still, better to turn 48 than NOT.

Overall I don’t really think about my age.  It is just a number and I feel fine, so what’s the point in worrying about a number?  However, I am now seeing fellow high school classmates as grandparents – THAT makes me feel old some days.  I look at the grey and my hair and wonder how that happened.  LOL, then I remember I have two young children …

I hope that 48 is a good year for me.  I’m going to do my best to make it one of my best years yet!

Two Weeks of Summer Left and All’s Well

Well, things have improved.  I don’t feel as down as I did last time I posted.  I suppose it is a cycle.  If I can just keep putting one foot in front of the other, things usually get better.

In two weeks, school starts again and my work schedule will go back to normal.  I imagine that getting back to a normal routine will be good for all of us.  There are things I need to take care of that are much easier to deal with when the kids are in school.  I know our daughter, bless her heart, will do much better once she readjusts to a school schedule.  Naturally, our son (12) is NOT counting the days – lol, he lives for an unscheduled life.  Little does he know, he doesn’t have a whole lot left of that – and I’m going to let him enjoy it as long as possible.

I’m sleeping better and imbibing less alcohol – not that I really drank all that much, but still cutting back has made a noticeable difference.  I’m not exercising like I want, but that too should change once school gets back in session.  At least, that’s what I’m telling myself.  Maybe I will work on that this week.  I should, I know.

I went to the library this weekend.  I am trying to get back into some of the things I used to enjoy: reading, writing, crocheting.  I just stopped doing them a long while back.  I’m sure it was depression.  And I’ve never really picked any of them back up.  I think it would be good for me to restart those activities.

Crowning me … part 2

Tomorrow is the big day – I get my crown put in.  On.  Whatever.  I cannot wait for this process to be over.  My tooth aches at expose to warm or cold, which makes the combo of breakfast cereal and coffee painful.  It has gradually gotten better – I no longer need to take Motrin after breakfast for the pain – but it is still a bit painful at times.  I just want my mouth to go back to normal.

And Sophie?  She’s sick again.  She missed about half of February but did really well last week – that is, she went to school all five days.
