Moving Forward

Tomorrow night Lynilu and I will be staying in the same hotel I stayed in when I went to visit her right after the break up. I went back and found the post I did that night and it just makes me sad to see how terrified I was and how lost I seemed.

This past week was very hard emotionally and I found myself slipping back into old habits of how I was dealing with things. I started feeling overwhelmed with things and then the huge sign was when I realized I was isolating myself. After talking with a good friend I seem to have more clarity and once again things are not so overwhelming. I read a quote on Thursday that made so much sense to me. It said, "Letting go is kind of like monkey bars. You need to let go in order to move forward".

I also know that getting out of town will be good for me. I know it's only two days, but I need these two days where I can just chill and not worry about all my responsibilities. Sophie will be staying with MJ and her Cowboy for these two days. I am so thankful that I have a place where I can leave Sophie and not worry about her. I know she will be well taken care of and will definitely get plenty of exercise running around with her best friend Sadie.

I went to the eye doctor today and all seems well. Well, he did tell me that my eyes were not getting enough oxygen and that my blood vessels are irritated in my cornea. He gave me a new pair of contacts that are able to "breathe" better and I will go back next week to have my eyes dilated. He wanted to dilate my eyes today, but said I could have it done next week when he does my follow up exam. (I would have hated to mess up my pool plans for today)

Be looking for a post that will explain this adventure Lynilu and I are on. My friends are definitely not boring.

Well, I'm excited! Most of the car is packed, so it shouldn't take me long to get us out the door!

Don't you think your emotions this last week were probably due to this trip triggering those memories? It would help if you came to see me more often! ;D

I'm glad you recognize your priorities about the eyes and the pool! LOL!! Yu crack me up sometimes, girl!

Damn tootin', I'm not boring!!! :D

You are an angel for helping Lynilu like this!

I know what you mean about Sophie staying with MJ, I feel that way about Reilly staying with Pop. That peace of mind means so much!
