Trying to find the silver lining (with pic)

Monday, July 01, 2013

Yes, I am alive and well...well. Hubby goes back to work next week, will get benefits in 90 days (maybe sooner with my work) and I am maintaining despite all the drama. So all in all, it's been a pretty good few weeks since my last blog.

It is JULY!!!! If you have been following me at all, you should know what this means!!

A pic of me and my good friend R, a picture from a tournament in 2007. Well, we have both been away from soccer, me for a year, her for 3 1/2 years. This week WE PLAY!!!! Just a pick up game, IF we can get people to come out despite it will be over 100 degrees. I am actually more excited for my friend. Soccer is more important to her than me and we have been through a lot these past few years. I promise to go easy, I promise to wear my brace, and I promise to have fun even if I am scared. I am ready, my knee is ready, but now I have to trick my mind to believe it!

I had to cancel my last appt with my surgeon since we lost our insurance, he called today and said he wants us to keep our appt in a few weeks, he will see me for free. LOVE him! Just want to get the final sign off from him, get his blessing so to speak.

Next on the get back within my goal range. I am a little over it, but I am okay with that! I have endured some tough times recently but I am still here pluggin away at the healthy living.

Peace out people!

    I'm so happy that you are going to be playing again! (insert happy dance here)

    Good news that your husband is going back to work - life is much easier when there aren't health insurance/money worries. My husband went back to work today after being on unemployment since November. We are thrilled. (insert big sigh of relief)

    I'm glad things seem to be looking up insurance / work wise, and I'm so impressed with your surgeon. How cool that he understands your situation! I hope the game is awesome, and just know that I am thinking about you always!!!
