I titled this entry "Life." It's what happens when days turn into weeks, weeks into months...so on and so forth. So many things and events...events that seemed to take away my writing mojo. It is my hope to get back to writing as my life has started to come back together. So what has gone on in my life for the past several months? Let me kinda sorta fill you all in.
I continued to be unwell physically and emotionally. Hormones will do that to you. I finally had a full hysterectomy/ bilateral oophorectomy in May. I haven't felt this good in years! It's no wonder as I found out after surgery that my left ovary was tangled in my colon and intestines. Also, my other "lady guts" as I refer to them were filled with endometriosis and some other type of "osis." The dr said those organs were all stuck to other things. So I was a mess. I have no regrets at all about having everything removed. It's a real celebration and such a relief to have the junk gone. I am currently working with some natural hormone replacement therapy.
We adopted a senior doggy from our local shelter in December. We named her Isabella. She came to us frostbitten and thin. We celebrated Christmas with her and gave her the best we were able to. She even went big riggin with us. Unfortunately she got very ill and she crossed the rainbow bridge on February 27th, 2014.
February 27th, 2014 also brought us a sad farewell to our little Allison Jeanne. Allison brought us so much love and joy in the 12 years we had her.
Losing Zander in August, Macey in October, and Isabella and Allison in February was incredibly hard and very emotional for us. I still miss them so much. On March 1st I got a tattoo on the inside of my right wrist of three pawprints in memory of my girls.
Winter was not only hard on our emotions, but it was also a rough winter weather-wise of record setting low temps and plenty of snow. We haven't had a big winter like this past one in years.
Summer is going by so fast. The garden is growing and soon I will be up to my eyeballs in gorgeous, delicious produce. I am thankful I am getting my health back on track and am looking forward to getting myself back in shape and running races. I am also quite excited to begin writing again. I have oodles to share. Canning, domesticness, gardening, cooking, the crazy Woodbury fur babies, big riggin with my babe, crocheting projects, and you know, all the crazy, ridiculous, scatterbrained thoughts that pop into my head.
Hope you all are doing super awesome!!
