One more week

Got my blood drawn this morning. And now I wait one more week for the TSH results. PLEASE let it be in the 3's. I just want to stop dragging this out and get the show on the road. I'm ready to move forward. The thought of having to wait even another month is so depressing. And would cause me a scheduling nightmare. So Thyroid- GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER.

Mail

I think snail mail is highly under rated. Technology is great- email is fast and efficient. But these days- the only mail I get is lame. Bills and ads- nothing good or even interesting.

But when you get something personal in the mail- it automatically puts you in a good mood.

When you mail someone a card or a letter- that person knows that you thought of them. You thought enough of them to pick out the card, write a little note on the inside, spend the $.44 on the stamp, and send them some happiness.

It seems like nothing, but it's just a little thing you can do to make someone else smile, even for a minute or two. It's so easy to do too.

Thank you Ali for making me smile today. Love you friend.

Needles

I went to acupuncture today. I have to say- it's the most relaxed I've been in months. I really enjoyed it. Because I have rheumatoid arthritis and it is very much triggered by stress- the acupuncturist suggests that I combine the acupuncture with massage. Um, ok- if you insist! So I got about 13 needles- one in each wrist, 2 in my right ear, and the rest in my back. I could hardly feel them at all. He also showed me some stretching exercises that he says will help with stress relief. All in all- a good visit. I'll go back on Thursday.

I came home bragging to JC about relaxed I was. We got in bed. And there I lay- totally unable to fall asleep. I tossed and turned for hours and here I am blogging at 4:16am. So much for being relaxed? I noticed that as soon as I left the appointment- I had horrible post nasal drip. It's making my throat scratchy. Please don't let me get sick right now. I don't have time to be sick right now. And I'm pretty sure I'll need a nap later.

Distracted Much?

I paid my homeowners association dues twice. And they are $540. Yikes. Guess I'll have to clear up that mess tomorrow. My brain is mush. It's filled with IVF success rates and sperm count numbers.

Everything is trucking along. I'm taking Synthroid and just waiting for my follow up with the Endocrinologist on March 11th. (Holy Crap- it's MARCH?!?!) JC has a follow up with SuperUro that afternoon as well. If that man even suggests for one second that we wait any longer- I will throat punch him.

Lyrics

Looooong ago I posted this about a Pat McGee song that I loved. And I loved the first part. I just went to see him in concert again last Friday and fell in love with the last half of the song again. It's been on repeat for days.

What are you so afraid of?
Are you trying to face the truth
Or just finding out what you're made of?

So you tell yourself anything to get you through
And you say you need a change
Maybe it's time
Maybe it's time

You been trying to let yourself forget
The baggage in your mind
Maybe it's time

Maybe it's time
To let go of your regrets
Everything'll be fine...
