Just in case you thought I was totally resting on my laurels.......I did get the Toika warped for an order.
Hot pink, lime green.
Luckily, it was already threaded through the reed, and the heddles, so here I just tied on.
Time consuming, yes, but not nearly as much as threading and sleying all over again.
By the way, Scrabble does not recognize 'sley'. Seriously?
That's my life they're talking about.
But you would kind of be right about me resting on my laurels, I have been shockingly unproductive of late.
Unless of course you count laying face down on a stretcher, with a needle stuck in the back of your neck, while being told to RELAX your muscles, DROP your shoulders, RELAX; sweat pouring off your face, knowing that no train of thought, no prayers, no concentration, NOTHING, will stop you from flinching with the stabbing pain that you know is coming. RELAX.
Then crying most of the way home.
That probably doesn't count for being productive though, does it.
Well, the good news is, I am done for this week. Another diagnostic injection next week, and then one the week after, and then the consult, and hopefully, a plan.
I have always thought of myself as physically, emotionally, and mentally STRONG. Prided myself actually, on being all those. I push myself harder and longer than anyone else would ever dare to do. I have a pit bull mentality about not allowing myself much slack.
I'm getting better, but honestly, I am still that way. Whatever I do, I do 100%, or more. Scary sometimes.
NOW, FOUR months into this, I don't feel any of the above. I cry at the drop of a hat. I can't concentrate, I don't get much done. I feel like a slug.
Not that there is anything wrong with that, just that it isn't me.
I realize that I have met up with the issue of aging and health problems...... head on. No pun intended.
I have always believed that when tough times come, there's a lesson to be learned. This is probably no different.
And I know that no matter how much I would like to resist this lesson, it's coming at me hard and fast.
I guess I should just RELAX and enjoy it.
No flinching allowed.
