Please tell me I’m not the only one who has to actually go to my blog, check the date and subject of my last post, BEFORE I start my current post. I just realized, as I did it again, that I always do this. I just thought it was kind of funny, and I’m really hoping I’m not the only one who does this. 🙂
Now that I’ve been on my antibiotic for 4 days, I’m starting to feel better. I’m not coughing as much, and the sinus pain is gone (thank you Lord). I wouldn’t say I’m 100% yet, but I do know I’m feeling better. I’m wondering if I’ve dealt with a low lying infection for a while now, maybe even since my sinus infection 3 months ago. I’m really hoping it gets kicked out of my body for good this time. I just need to make sure I’m drinking more water. I am drinking water, I just don’t think I’m drinking enough with this infection. I need to work on that.
I went to the dentist today, and they said my gums are doing so much better. Last year I was on the verge of having to go to a gum surgeon because I have gum disease. But I’ve tried very hard to make sure I’m brushing twice a day, flossing and I’ve been having cleanings every 3 months. I think that has helped, because my gums are doing better. I do have one area that was still sore and would bleed some times, but now that I’m on this antibiotic, it seems to have cleared up a bit. I don’t have to get another cleaning for 4 months, and then hopefully I’ll be back to a regular 6 month schedule. I’m so thankful to the Lord that my gums are healing, and I don’t have to go to a surgeon.
The Lord has been showing me how to better balance my days. There are so many things I want to do and need to do, but there are some days I just can’t do it all. I can usually get all my work around the house done, and get my part time job done too. But whether its crafts, blogging or photography, I just want to be able to spend hours on it when I start, but I can’t always do that. I’m learning how to pick up a craft, do a bit of work on it, and set it back down again. The same with blogging and photography. They are all things that I know are fine for me to do, it’s just realizing that I don’t need to have a 2 hour block of time to do them. When I do, that’s great, but when I don’t, I need to be ok with that too. I guess it comes down to using my time wisely, and knowing I can’t always have my cake and eat it too. 😉
Well, speaking of using my time wisely, hubby just texted me to let me know he’s on his way home, so I need to get off the laptop. But I can’t leave without sharing a photo. I haven’t used my camera too much lately, being sick and all, but we did finally get some snow today. I hope to take some photos tomorrow to share with you. But until then I’ll leave you with a picture of the yummy no bakes Sarah make for us the other day. The pile isn’t that big anymore. 😉
