So I've basically slept since Wednesday. I didn't realize how tired I'd be...and then my mom reminded that I've been on bed rest since August 1st and spent 5 days in the hospital then drove across the country and now I'm back in high altitude. And of course I thought I'd just jump back into life as I knew it.
So this morning I woke up and decided to give my lungs a little work out and took my friend's daughter for a walk on the trails in the neighborhood. It was a beautiful morning...the sun is always shining in the morning, unlike Virginia's moody skies. The walk felt great and I felt great so I finally started unpacking and organizing our "area" in our friends' house. I feel like a new woman!
I also had a fun night last night with a friend who used to cut my hair. Her salon hosted a Rack n Roll clothing party so I enjoyed trying on cute, expensive clothes and then putting them all back on the rack and enjoying a glass of wine. We were getting hungry so we went to a little hole in the wall in Castle Rock and enjoyed some fries and onion rings. My friend lost her husband to ALS last year and she has a 4 year old also...so we talked a lot about the process of getting through a hard time.
I start work on Monday and Jackson starts school. Please pray that we both adjust well!
Also, I really need to find a more permanent place to live. My friends that I'm living with are great and the setup is great, but it's temporary. So if you know of anyone with a basement apartment or mother-in-law apartment in the Denver area, please let me know! And keep your ears open (is that even a saying?) for a long-term house-sitting positition if you don't mind.
Well, it's time to go pick up Jackson from George's and then head to the art fest. Should be a good time.
Thanks again for all your prayers and encouragement. It is so good to know I have so many people helping me carry my burden.
Oh, and as soon as I find my USB cable, I'll post some pictures of our road trip!
