Someone once said to me that if they didn’t actually know me, they’d think I was crazy with everything that goes on in my life. I always had a suspicion that other folks had less crazy in their lives, but I swear mine comes in waves and then I get quiet periods and that MUST be how life works for everyone right?!
Last week my mom called in a panic and said my father had literally fallen over at dinner and was in an ambulance on the way to the hospital. He legit broke his face in the fall, has stitches, and just got out of the hospital this week. It seems he had some sort of “heart incident” that caused him to lose oxygen and topple. They are still struggling to get his oxygen up so he’s on a tank, but at home, which is good. Got us all a little shaken up I would say.
I can’t even begin to describe my work situation save to say that it is crazy and I’ve just started nodding my head at everything because I can’t process it all. The side effect of this is that I’m making myself go for a lot of walks to avoid negative reactions to things, so I’m actually getting a lot of steps in!
Monday evening my bf called me from the side of the road with smoke coming out of his car. He just hit 50,000 miles and his engine blew on his Civic – so much for Honda quality. Luckily he was not on the highway and he could pull over in a safe spot, but now it seems like we’re VERY unexpectedly car shopping. I’m a shopper but I do NOT like car shopping. Eugh!
All of this is going on before we leave for Colorado on Saturday. I should be much more excited for vacation but it still seems unreal to me right now that we’ll be there in two days. I always tell people that Colorado is good for the soul. I always feel so much lighter after going there and I really hope that is the same experience for this trip.
But I’m really most excited about the best thing to happen to me in a very long time: We’re getting a dog!!!!!!!!!
Meet Baby Beatrice, Bea the Boston Terrier:
BF and I picked the name while we were waiting for the tow truck on Monday lol, it means “She who brings happiness” which I hope will be true. I have wanted my own dog for years now and I keep pinching myself to see if this is real. She will be coming home in late September. I sincerely hope this means I get outside more, I learn, I grow, and we have many happy years together.
All that being said, I haven’t paid too much attention to food or fitness recently (although my steps counts still manage to exceed my goal?!) and I know I’ll have to get back there at some point. Right now I’m going with the flow and trying to keep with it. I suppose I’ll put more thought into this after vacation, but come on… look at that puppy! I’m a little distracted! I’ll be back…
