I know this is going to sound crazy but I think I am ready to get back to work. Maybe it is more for the routine than anything but think I am finally ready.

It has been really nice to have the past 6 weeks with my mother and get to spend some quality time with her, I think she is probably ready for me to go back to work as well.
This wonderful man turns 81 years old today. We will celebrate by going up to his grave and putting some balloons and then waffle for old time sake on where we should go for dinner.

February 11, 2015

Have you ever wished you were more poetic? I have. I guess not really in the way I would rhyme my words but just in how I would put them together.  Oh well. It's me and who ever reads my posts/journal posts get me for who I am.

This past Monday February 9th I went under the knife yet again. It was the 2nd time this year and we are only 42 days into 2015. I had a Total Thyroidectomy. I now have to rely on medication to make my body function correctly and from what I have read, your body relies A LOT on your Thyroid. It's going to take some time to get this thing figured out but I am ready to stop losing my hair and get back to losing the extra weight I have and feel better.
I guess the good thing is that he was able to change the once crooked smile scar to a full smile scar.

February 5, 2015

Well, I am getting old! Yep, its true! If all my medical issues weren't enough to confirm it, the fact that my eyes are changing and the optomytrist told me so is. I have glasses for distance and readers if you can believe it for up close. ugh!!!!
Check out the thinning hair! double ugh!! Thanks to my Thyroid. Which by the way is coming out on Monday. More to come after Monday.

February 3, 2015

I had to laugh! I was reading my previous post this morning and thought WOW, I must have either written it late at night or while I was on meds! At least that is the excuse I am going with because it doesn't make much sense and just rambles. It is all true and some day I will maybe fix it but then again, maybe not.

On to another topic, I found a picture in some of my old pictures and I think this was at my heaviest.

This picture below is a week ago down 65 pounds! It has taken me a year and I still want to lose 50 more but I will take it. I wish I was smiling in the picture because it looks like I am not happy but I am. I just didn't know when Dana was taking the picture.  Speaking of Dana, that is another one that I need to find before and after pictures of because she has lost a lot as well over the years and is looking good.
I am worried with my thyroid issues about my weight because I have been reading a lot about it but I am going to make sure and do all I can.
I can't believe we are into February already!
