We are officially one week into the new year!
How are you feeling about 2019 so far?
If you follow me on Instagram you would have known I started the January Whole 30. Not because its a resolution but rather January is a quiet month for me to focus on my eating habits. There are no January birthdays in my family so I know the season for celebrations will be quieter.
Our homeschool started back up last week, however community day is this week. I have to say I loved being on break. Waking up late, decluttering areas that never get attention, moving at a slower pace, and not doing school.
Second-semester Challenge B has a few strands that are changing their content so as a tutor and teacher I had a ton of catching up to do.
Debateturns from current events to Mock Trial
- Research changes from
studingscientists to reading and discussing Defeating Dawinism.
- Exposition is no longer novels but short stories.
- And last but not least Logic goes from Introductory to Intermediate. Oh My!!
Thankfully my daughter, who is in Foundations/Essentials, just keeps going forward.
For those of you keeping track of my knee injury, surgery, and rehab. I wanted to let you know that I am done being a patient. Yep, physical therapy at an office is done, and I met with my doctor yesterday, who had little to no good news. But the important part is that I am finished. 5.5 months later and I am on my own.
On to a new normal.
My knee will continue to deteriorate, no thanks to arthritis, so I have to do everything in my power to be responsible. Keep ice close by, because swelling is forbidden. Strengthen the surrounding muscles to take pressure off the joint, and last but not least lose weight. Oh! and never forget that God is good, and His plan for my life is to bring glory to Him. What more could I ask for?
Last Sunday I went to dinner with my besties and one of them sweetly asked how I was doing in my head with all of this. I took a second and answered that I still haven’t mourned the loss of the movement I loved doing, and I was currently just numb. That was until the drive home from the doctor’s office. The water-works came and I threw a minor temper tantrum. All the while Christian radio was playing and it felt like every song was exactly what I needed to hear. I have a living hope that my life is never overlooked. Jesus makes me brave, and someday my fears will have to meet the God I serve. He was with me the whole drive home, and in the phone
In 2019 I don’t want to wear this injury like a badge to be crabby or taken care of. I want to bury this new thing God is doing and see what comes up.
So onto another day, another week, month and so on. I can hardly believe its 2019! If you asked me how long ago the
My grandma used to say that the days are long but the years fly by.
You know what? She was right!
