Wow! She’s Alive

It’s been forever since I even realized or remembered I had a blog. It’s kind of crazy how fast this year has gone!

So, what’s been happening?

Hmm… March 10, 2022 … I had subcutaneous ulnar nerve surgery on my elbow. Today, I had another follow-up on it, after doing an FCE. I fou nd out that I need to have an ultrasound on my elbow because I’m still having pain and numbness through-out my arm. So, since April-ish, I’ve been on 2-lb weight limit, and it’s frustrating as hell!

I just want my arm to work without pain like it did before this injury 11 months ago. Yeah, that’s right. It happened 11 months ago and I’m still dealing with it. I’m scared I’m going to be dealing with it for the rest of my life.

Well I’m broken

On Friday I broke my arm. Well I broke my elbow.

Today, I had to get my first ever COVID test.

Did I mention we’re already shorthanded at work?

Thank God for speech to text. Otherwise this would not be happening at all.

I’m ready for just three months of me not getting sick or injured. But I don’t think that’s gonna happen anytime soon.

I want to sneeze so bad but it keeps running away!

I want to be able to breathe out of my nose.

I just want to be pain free for a day.

OK I think I’m done whining.

The End of 2020?

Goals. Goals. Goals.

Goals! I have them.
Goals, I need them.
Goals! I made them!

I decided on 5 track-able goals for the end of 2020.
1. Health based
2. Writing related
3-5 are home related!

Weigh 130 lbs

I don’t want to weigh less than 130, but if I’m over at the end of 2020, but I achieve the other goals for this, I’ll be more than happy.

  • Drink half my body weight in ounces
  • eat veggies most (2B Mindset)
  • finish a workout program

Finish a First Draft

I want to write a novel. I want to write one really bad. This year, it’s going to be my year.

  • set up OneNote for the novel
  • create a basic plot
  • write 50k (for NaNoWriMo)
  • finish the book

Organize Closet

I love our house, and I love the master closet. It’s big. But it’s a bit of a mess.

  • Go through boxes (we still have boxes from when we moved)
  • Organize hanging clothes (shirts/dresses/etc)
  • Figure out organization. Some of our bathroom stuff needs to go in the closet. 😉
  • Figure out lighting and shelves. If the organization needs an overhaul, we’ll have to change the shelving too. And I’m not a fan of the light fixture in it.

Organize Bedroom

We have a good sized bedroom, but we both have a lot of clothes, and I refuse to part with what I don’t have to. Plus, I want to add a smallish desk to the room as well.

  • go through clothes (meaning stuff that’s never going to fit again, and doesn’t have meaning to me, stuff like that)
  • work on arrangement ideas 😀
  • set up any furniture (I need at least one more dresser, and we plan on adding a tv to the room)
  • make bedroom part of daily routine (picking up laundry, making bed, etc)

Set Up Office Area in the Basement

Our basement is full but unfinished (well, finished, but not …). So I’m trying to figure out how I want the basic area set up for the office area and working out.

  • Get rid of the trash. You know, empty boxes, used things, etc.
  • Work on arrangement ideas. I have over 1200 square feet to work with. That requires a plan 😉
  • Set up the official workout area. We got the puzzle foam pieces to make it work.
  • Figure out filming area. I want to be able to do videos, and well, I need an area to do it that doesn’t look busted and unfinished.

Quick Update

Things are going okay here. Kids don’t have school for the rest of the school year. At least not in-school school. The district is working on the online aspect. This is good, because if they can figure this out now, they’ll be able to figure it out later when it comes to snow days. Then they won’t have to add extra days anymore. Maybe?
