Sheesh, still going...

16. If I could change one thing about myself, it would be _______. How and why would you make that change?
It's either patience or acceptance; I'm lacking in both and I'm not sure which would suit me best. I hate acceptance, because too often it feels like defeat or disappointment. I'm sure that's simply a matter of perspective (most of the time, anyhow) but that still doesn't make me comfortable with the idea. Patience may be the better solution, as it feels like you're still in the race... just maybe not where you'd like to be.
Maybe it would be easier to just say "I'd like to change my thighs, please."
Had a call from my mother-in-law last evening. I haven't chatted with her in a long while. She seemed to be doing well (though she scared the heck outta me, asking if we were coming to Christmas dinner!)
Traveling to Michigan for the holidays is not in the cards. I think she was kidding. Actually, I was afraid she was out of it (she has those fugues), but the rest of the conversation seemed current. In any event, she asked all sorts of questions and we had a nice chat.
I have to complete and turn in my paperwork for health insurance today. Apparently my company wasn't happy with the rates from the current provider, so they're switching. It's certainly not saving me any money and the details tend to make my head swim. It's no wonder we can't make this affordable and accessible for everyone. This system is seriously messed up!
It's 2 degrees outside - still dark - and I think I'm going to waddle into the Y. I clearly have some mental energy and hope my legs will come along for the workout.
Happy Monday, SparkFriends!
