I wish I could say there was a lot to report, but there isn’t. I’m now fully recovered from last year’s surgery.. just some pretty ugly scars to show for my time, and the nerve damage. From what I’ve read online, and what my Doctor said as well, it could be anywhere from now -> 2 years -> never for the nerve damage to be resolved. I’m really hoping that ‘never’ is not behind any of the doors I’ve chosen. There’s a crazy pain that shoots through my lower left leg, it stops me dead in my tracks — doesn’t matter what I’m doing — all there is is that pain. I’d like for that to go away too, please. So yeah.. fully recovered.
Spending a lot of my free time on Turntable. Anyone who knows me well knows that music is a huge part of my life, and what keeps me marginally sane. This site allows me not only to listen to music that I love (music I’ve chosen to listen to) but also exposes me to other people’s favorites — and I’ve met some really great people in the process.
I’ve tasked myself with making a lot of changes this year — might as well let the intarwebs know about them. Maybe it’ll help me actually keep up with them:
- Read a book every week.
- Do a load of dishes and/or a load of laundry every day until there’s none (baskets) left.
- Walk more.
- Cook more.
- Allow myself to fall into like, if not love, this year.
Yeah, that last one is going to be the really hard one, I’m realizing. I’m fairly emotionally closed off to men. A lot of that comes from just being completely out of practice — I went on one date last year. One. And it was a nightmare. Well, ok.. it wasn’t a nightmare but it was laughably one of the least pleasant dates I’d ever been on. The rest of my closed-offedness comes from how much easier and.. well.. nicer.. it is to not be hurt. But this year, I’m ripping that bandaid off, and I’m going to go on MORE THAN ONE date. I know.. catch your breath.
