Do you ever just get so busy you don’t know what to do when you finally do have time to yourself? That’s been me. Busy. I’ve been painting, yet another room in our house. This time the bedroom, because back when we first moved into our home, I heard a commercial that said something along the lines of using flat paint with kids because you can just repaint over any marks on the walls without worrying about the oils in new paint versus old paint not matching up. All I can say was that was a load of shit. I shouldn’t have used a flat paint. Any person who has any sense at all would have looked at me strange when they found that one out. So we repainted the room. Even though I liked the purple, we decided on a soft blue. It looks good for a bedroom.
It was raining and hailing at times during the race.
Last Saturday I ran my very first 5K. I shouldn’t really say I ran. I ran/walked the 5K, but I still completed it, and I believe we completed it toward the middle front of the pack. So I’m giving myself a pat on the back for that.
My husband is finally recovering from some back problems. Back in December he had a steroid injection to help relieve the pain from a degenerating disc. The steroid shot lasted about three months, then started to act up on our trip back from Colorado. After we got back, we thought, oh it will get better, it was just from the long drives. It never got better. So a few weeks ago we went ahead with another procedure to burn the nerve that causes the pain in between the disc and the vertebrae. We were told after the procedure that his pain would get worse before it got better. It was that way for a little while, but now it seems that my husband’s pain is manageable and getting better as each day goes on. I’m so grateful and thankful for that. For a long time, my husband hasn’t been himself because of the pain. So this is an answer to prayer.
Next Sunday my oldest will have his first piano recital. I’m really proud of him. He takes his homework and piano practice as serious as I think a seven-year old can. I’m hoping he’ll continue playing. I think it’s really good for him.
Along with that, my mind has just been pre-occupied with things…things I have to get done, things I hope will happen, things that may not even matter in the grand scheme of things. Things…..and stuff. I think I need to once again re-evaluate my life and see where I’m focusing too much energy. I need to pause and be grateful for my surroundings, my friends and family and the little things that can easily be over-looked when you have your focus on something else.
