Day 14- A picture of you and your family

Seriously, I’m totally running out of pictures of me and my family and friends.  LOL  This is from 2009 – almost all of my family on my mother’s side.  My husband and one of my children are missing but it’s pretty tough to get us all together at the same time.

Day 09- Something you’re proud of in the past few days

Okay – this may seem really lame to a lot of people (well, the 5 or so that read my blog) but I’m very proud of the fact that I finally, finally had the first part of my dental surgery done.

After getting a print out of my account I was surprised to find out that I have needed this oral surgery for 10 years.  10 years!  The first time I went to see the oral surgeon was 2002 and for one reason or another I kept putting it off.  And off.  And off.  Since I’m working on taking care of me now I decided to finally get it taken care of.  It’s been so long and things have not gotten better that we had to break my surgery up into two separate procedures.  The first was last Thursday and the next will be this Thursday.  Some time off for healing (and starting a new job! but more on that later) and I can get a bridge.

So, maybe it’s lame and for many people it may not be something to be remotely proud of but for me it was a big step.


Day 08- Short term goals for this month and why

This one is pretty darned easy actually.  LOL

My short term goal for this month is to post every day for this meme.  It’s been years since I’ve posted on my blog consistently and the only thing I’ve been able to count on is that I would NOT post!  Part of my recovery is writing more because writing makes me vulnerable.  Being vulnerable is a place I have had no desire to be for years and I miss the person I was when I was willing to share with friends and family.

30 days make a habit – at least that’s what I’ve heard – so I’m hoping these 30 days help me get back into the habit of expressing myself through the written word.

Day 07- A picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you

I’m little behind so two posts today.  Yesterday, for some reason, I was pretty tired.  Went to the dentist for a check up and he said all is looking good.  Next surgery is scheduled for this coming Thursday.

This post is a picture of someone/something that has the biggest impact on you and man, is that an easy one.  It’s my  husband Paul.  When I met him my entire life changed for the better and continues to do so.  Having someone in your life that truly loves you without question or reservation is powerful.  With him on my side I know I can do anything I set my mind to.  We’ve been married 11 years and will celebrate our 12th in September.  I look forward to spending the rest of my days with him – in fact, can’t image spending them with anyone else.

I love you baby!

The main picture is us from our wedding day in 2000 and this picture is us from Christmas 2006. I’ve said before and I really mean it – I hate having my picture taken so there are very few recent pictures of me to be found.
