Things are looking a little better...

I have to admit I've been in a bit of a funk lately.  However, I've decided that I'm going to just buck up and get over it.  I am not going to start the 43rd year of my life with a negative attitude, no-siree-bob. Nope.  I've got too much to look forward to in this life. 

So...how's every little thing with all of you?

News from the Doctor...sigh...

I am so exhausted, but turns out there was a good reason for it.  I thought I was just down and depressed or something, but I am apparently still having some major health issues:

1.  My thyroid is way out of whack--I don't have near enough thyroid stimulating hormone in my system.
2.  My body isn't absorbing vitamin B12, and I'm going to have to get shots for it.
3.  One of my medications was wreaking havoc with my blood sugar--I'm going to have to stop it, but there's no substitute.

I got a flu shot yesterday, as well as my first B12 shot, and the doctor upped my thyroid medicine, so maybe I'll start feeling better.  To think I almost canceled my appointment while Greg and I were in the waiting room.  Greg had to get to school in Lynchburg, and I didn't want him to be late.  He said it didn't matter, that I was more important.  He's so good to me.

People tease us at work because they say we are still "honeymooning."  I don't know about all that; I just know that it has been a year and four months, and I'm still crazy about him--scratch that; it gets better every day.  When I'm waiting on him to get home from school, I miss him as if I haven't seen him all day.  When I see his car go past the front of the house toward the driveway, I literally get butterflies in my stomach.  I still rush to the back door to greet him with a hug and kiss before he even gets in the house.  He gets more and more handsome every day!  I hope it never changes.

Okay, enough of that...sorry.

I hope that these new treatments will make me feel better again...I want to be better for my kids at school, for my husband, and for my life in general.  But mainly, I just want to feel better.

Yes We Can...

I am so thrilled...yesterday my hubby and I were out shopping, and he turned the opposite way from home on the way back.  I asked him what he was doing and he said, "you'll see."

We wound up in front of the local Democratic party headquarters.  He went in and came out a moment later with an Obama/Biden lawn sign!!! My husband has become a Democrat....yes, yes, yes!!!

I knew it might happen someday, but not this soon.  My prayer has been answered!

I have a very good feeling about this election; I am so excited to think that we will finally have a Democrat back in the White House.  Not just a Democrat, but one I believe in.

I also have a very good feeling about the fact that we all have a very, very good chance to witness a major historical event with the election of Barack Obama.  I was born during the Civil Rights Movement, saw the results of change, but still I never dreamed an African American president would come along in my lifetime.  I'm so happy I was wrong...

If you don't agree with me, that's fine; so be it.  Get your own blog and talk about it.  I personally am excited and thrilled with what Obama hopes to bring to the American people with his presidency, and I am more than willing to help make change happen.

Stepping off the soapbox and continuing with the day now...take care all...
