Massive Update

Gosh, where has the time gone?  Here's the latest with me.  We did end up taking the motorcycle to my in-laws.  The morning ride was near torture.  I wore my thin riding gloves with a liner and the 10 degree wind just tore right through them.  We argued while my hands warmed up on the side of a deserted road.  I thought I had to wear fingered gloves.  My husband told me there were no rules and I should have worn my ski mittens.  We debated whether or not to go back home but soldiered on with my hands tucked behind his lower back.  That sorta helped.  Also, my hip flexors, especially the left one was on fire.  By the time we go to the celebration, I thought my leg was going to fall off and I spent the next half hour stretching.  The group was small this time, no SIL even though I was confident I could get along with her.  We ate and drank and were back on the bike by 5pm.  It was a race against the dark and by now, the weather had warmed so the ride back was quite fun and a lot faster than in the morning.

Easter Sunday, we went to the house of a dear friend.  It was a hodge-podge of folks with no where to go on Easter!  So, I brought my parents!!! :)  It was so great.  I made a spicy quinoa salad that rocked.  I am so proud of myself.  I felt so blessed that day.  And it was a good thing, too because the work week was one of my worst.  Why can't anybody treat Easter Week with a little bit of gentleness?  Last week, I felt like the mistake police.  Nobody could get it right and some people decided to use me like a trained monkey.  I'm doing my best to never invite that treatment again.  Let's see how I do this week.

My PMS started a full week before my period.  It hasn't started yet but should in the next day or so.  It does get tough when you're out of commission a whole seven days.  I'm moody, bloated, irritated.  My only consolation is God, thankfully.  I spent my lunch hour today at adoration chapel.  Hopefully, I'll do that every day I take my lunch to work.  I'm blessed, blessed, blessed to have an adoration chapel just two blocks from work.  A good walk to visit with the Lord.


  1. Lucky you with the adoration chapel!

  2. Yeah, I'm pretty jealous about that chapel. When I get my act together, I can get to Mass at noon. But no chapel!
