Countdown 3-2-! & More

Okay, my new bathroom tile will not look like this. Can you imagine? For my in-home spa (a very small en suite bathroom), I’m going for ‘serenity now & a laugh.’ But guess what, people! The tile setter is here working today and as many days as it takes!

Not sure why, but approaching my blog has been difficult recently. I visit my home page because I love to see the various countries in which readers reside. Though, no spark of interest in writing have I, nothing compelling or inspiring me.

Testing last week ruled out other possible causes of my symptoms. It’s “just” fibromyalgia. Next step, I’m switching fibro medication, hoping for some relief. The next month, or so, will be transitioning from one to the other, which will include going down to almost no fibro med before adding the new. I guess we’ll see how effective this one has been as I react to its absence. It likely will be an unpleasant month, hopefully not longer, based on my previous experience. Not sure what that means for my writing. If I post a Henny Penny message, “The sky is falling! The sky is falling!” know that it’s the dreadful journey from current baseline to new.

Things have gone well with my mother-in-law move in. Better than I had hoped. My counselor and I talked about how I spent a lot of negative energy heading into this. Witness to many family issues, some involving myself, over these many years, 32 of them, what I remember is that pretty much every time MIL was on the wrong side of history. I crowded all of these memories into one film reel in my mind and watched it over and over in the months leading up to her relocation. The fears were well-founded, but she really does live in her space downstairs, where I spent no time previously. My husband summed it up when he asked, “Is it not as bad as you thought it would be?” to which I agreed. He followed up, “She’s of no use but not bad.” True, true. I pictured her cleaning my house because she’s so particular and in some ways helping. She’s sees Wolf work looong days and spend all of his “spare” time working on house projects and sees first-hand my limitations, but doesn’t consider filling in the gap.

I’ve written much more than I’d intended. The pain in my neck-to-shoulder-to-elbow is very hard to ignore. Just wanting to say hello and share the launch of my bathroom tile installation; I know some of you have been following my angst over this project. Have a good day, all.

Writing is one of my passions. Most blog entries are relatively short articles regarding a wide variety of topics. I'm a middle-aged wife and mother of two adult sons. I've been a teacher, counselor, medical transcriptionist, student teacher supervisor, substitute teacher and retail clerk. Staying home now due to fibromyalgia. Seeking purpose.
