A little update

I am so glad that blogging daily was not on my list of new years resolutions. That would have been a fail right off the bat! No posts in 15 days. I did not even reply to any comments. It’s not like I was too busy. I just sometimes can not get up the energy to turn on the computer after spending 8-10 hours a day on it at work. I know in this day in age most of us work daily on computers. But sometimes I just want a break. So I took one, without even really thinking about it.

Not much has gone on in the last 2 weeks anyways. We now have snow on the ground that does not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. I have now realized how incredibly stupid it is not to have snow tires on my car. No I did not have an accident. But I feel like I might as well be in a tobaggan (like those olympic style ones) rather then a car. I am getting used to it and don’t mind driving on ice or hard packed snow but slushy snow scares the crap out of me and I hold my breath whenever Cory has the car. He is a good driver, so I really don’t need to be, he has only ever had one accident but he also is inexperienced compared to me.

Works going okay. I am working overtime this week. Just an extra hour a day but it is an odd shift, it was 11:15 am to 7:15 pm. I took an extra hour before so 10:15 am to 7:15 pm. I even went to the gym yesterday with Kristy (sister-in-law). Tomorrow is Friday and I am happy I have made it to the end of the week with some energy to spare. I plan on going skating at the Oval downtown which is an outdoor oval rink that was made for winter games a few years ago. I went last weekend and Erin and I went around twice. Doesn’t seem like much but it was 1 more time then the week before which was our first time going. My skates are old (15 years or so) but since they were hardly warn they are not that bad. Only problem with them is I (or someone else maybe…) put them away wet and the blade has some rust. I am going to look into a new pair next year or new blades. This year I just had them sharpened and hoped for the best. I made it around without falling. Then again I used to figure skate for over 12 years so it’s like getting back on a bike…right?

I find I am having issues with my balance again (not counting when I am on skates lol) and am getting dizzy spells and restless legs and pain in my back, legs and arms again. I am sleeping okay because of my new mattress and box spring and my medication but I am not getting as good quality of sleep as I should. Waking up a lot. I think I am going to talk to my doctor and see if there is a Fibromyalgia specialist or Rheumatologist that I can be referred to. I want to get back into physio and see if I can rely a bit less on medication. Getting pregnant while on Amitrypteline is probably not recommended though my doctor did not say anything when I said I want to try.

This post is so random and so scattered lol. Sorry.

  1. Wow, skating? We were forced to do that in school so after that I’ve never attempted again. I think I actually did once with the church youth group, but not after that. I’ve never been good at those balance sports stuff.

    1. I have always loved to ice skate. It’s always been one of my favorite winter sports. I enjoy skiing and have tried snowboarding once. My younger brother Denton tried to teach me but I didn’t have the leg strength or balance for that.
