A Day In My Life

I am a very lucky girl!! My husband supports a nice life for our family.  Our needs are met, we live in a nice community, my kids have opportunity and we enjoy life together.  While some may say my day is quite carefree I would say I concur.  Truly I am very lucky!  And I make sure I pass my good fortune on wherever and whenever I can.  Also, I accept the good and difficult in my life and make the most of it.

The worst parts of my week, if you can even call it that, are the constant doctors appointments (gp, neuropsych, neurology, surgeon, urologist, therapist, etc…).  I usually have 3 appointments a week for varying reasons.  Next week for example I will have a MRI, therapist session, support group and urologist.  The week following I will have a appt with neuropsychologist, my neurologist, support group and my therapist.  While I’m very fortunate to have this wonderful team of people constantly touching base with me — I long for days with no appointments.  At the same time I enjoy each and every one of these fabulous people.  I feel blessed that these professionals do what they do and I get to be a part of it all.

That said today was a lovely day.  The sun was shining, my husbands business is thriving, my kids are progressing and I had a day with no appointments!!! I met some fabulous people, enjoyed visiting with good friends, had a fun lunch out with my husband, watched my son play soccer, talked to my daughter, pet my dogs, felt the sun shine on my face and embraced every moment.  It was truly a lovely day!

  1. Thank you for sharing your adventures!… you have a wonderful family and life!… perhaps you can look at the appointments in the positive note, another adventure and one day those appointments may gradually disappear.. 🙂

    “I used to have all these plans and think ‘Ah, I have my whole life figured out’, but then I realized no matter how much I plan: life happens! So I find myself living day to day trying to do my best, embracing every moment as a learning opportunity and chance to get to know myself a little more.” Q’orianka Kilcher

      1. Aww, thank you, and one of Dizzy’s fans. 🙂 Elaine has painted a few pictures of Dizzy in the past and we asked if she would mind doing one for a little logo for us. 🙂 We absolutely love it! 🙂 xxx

  2. Reading this litany of items on your agenda, I feel like such a sloth … a day like this takes a lot of stamina! My day: I ate breakfast, checked in at work, walked five miles and came home and have been parked in front of this computer since 11:00 a.m., with the exception of taking two 1/2 hour breaks … in fact I started the walking regimen because I sat too many hours without moving and that was BEFORE the blogging began. I do know it is unhealthy sitting so many hours and I walk around the house once an hour – it is a short walk as it is a small house.
