Hola Mis Amigos!
I’m back, tan and refreshed from the daily grind. Oh how I wish I could rewind and spend another week in Mexico!!
I’m sure you can imagine what a week away does to one’s desk at work. I walked in this morning to my L-shaped desk being covered with various piles of papers. There wasn’t even a note to explain what everything was. I kept chipping away at the piles over the course of the day and am pleased with how I left things this afternoon. I tried to work quickly because I had to rush out early to get to another knee doctor appointment.
Of course, you know they took me late, even though I battled traffic while biting my nails in order to get there on time. What made me smile was realizing that: #1- The sun was still shining & #2 – There wasn’t a flake of snow to be seen anywhere on the ground. I smell spring! Bring it on!!
After speaking with my doctor we decided that I should have a cortisone shot in my knee. Hopefully, this will turn things around for me; otherwise, I’ll have to go in for an MRI and who knows what that might bring. 😦 It is feeling a bit better now and I hope it continues to progress this way. The doctor ok’d me for lower body exercise and cardio if I get through this week without any pain. Fingers crossed! I am getting antsy not being allowed to workout.
Currently, I’m sitting in Starbuck’s parking lot, sipping a tall nonfat misto. My landlord is showing my apartment so I had to make myself scarce. Of course, I forgot to bring my camera with me to show you all how beautiful everything was in Mexico. I promise to get those pics up for you over the course of the week. We did a lot of relaxing in the sun, cooling off in the water, taking in the scenery, laughing with each other and even went on an adventure outside of the resort. All I can say is that I may or may not have been scared to death more than a few times during the adventure. I’m alive and proud of myself though. What a way to end my 31st year!
Now, I’m going to make a quick grocery store run because my fridge is practically bare. I need to keep in mind that I’m moving in a few weeks and should keep my purchases to only the things I absolutely need over this short span of time. Going to the grocery store for me is like a little kid going to Disney World. Well, maybe not quite that good, but I do love a good grocery run. 😉
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead!
