KC & I joined Steve this week for one of his business road trips to South Carolina. While he has been in meetings with contractors, we have been hanging out by the pool. KC spotted this little blue egg from our balcony a few days ago and we have been keeping an eye on it all week. Before leaving home we loaded a u-haul top to bottom, back to front with everything KC thought she needed or would need back at school. After a stop at Crispy Creme this morning we headed across north Georgia to move her back on campus in the morning. After we get her settled and everything put together, Steve and I will be heading back towards home, but not before we make several stops along the way. Okay they are along my way, but according to Steve and the GPS they are detours....some major ones off the route! But what's a road trip without a few unplanned stops along the way?
That tiny blue egg represents a new beginning and that's just what I have ahead of me.
After two weeks of waiting for all the biopsy, lab and x-ray results to come in, my Dr's appt was not what I wanted to hear, but thankful as it could have been worse. For the third time in my life I have been diagnosed with ulcers, only this time it is Severe Peptic Ulcer Disease which requires me to make a dramatic lifestyle change! Don't know which is worse, the meds or having to deal with the pain. Although stress and what I eat did not cause the 20+ ulcers, both contribute to them. His prescription was 6 wks in the Bahamas or making some major changes in my life before one of several rupture. Well with all the kids in college, 6 weeks in the Bahamas is not in the picture at this time. Although more days at the beach will be forthcoming, they will be more relaxing once all the vacationer's head home for kids to start back to school. Right now you can't park, walk or move without rubbing elbows with someone!
I have spent the past several weeks trying to make some changes in my hectic schedule and remove myself from things and those around me that I felt were causing more stress than they were worth. As Steve put it, I am and have always been a giver, a do it yourself, don't ask for help and etc.....and that has got to change. After leaving the doctors office, Steve and I headed over to the island for lunch and to talk about how we together were going to make changes.
See you after our road trip!
