I can’t believe how fast time is flying lately. I’m kind of shocked it’s July. And not just the beginning of July. Saturday was Ryan’s birthday and I’ve always equated that with a sort of mid summer celebration.
I have been attending therapy regularly for over a year now. I’ve accomplished a lot, but for me it is work that will never be done. Some weeks I feel well, my depression is cooperative, my anxiety is light, and my health is stable. Other weeks I am down in the dumps, or anxious over an everyday task, and when the pain flares who knows where my head is going to be.
So I am thankful that I keep making those appointments and keep going back. Just checking in can be refreshing.
At the beginning of the year I started this blog and a different type of creative project. I’ve been working on creating a mandala coloring book. In 2017 I created a 100 Mandala project, where I filled a sketch book with individual and unique mandalas. This year I wanted to expand on that. I have so far created 14 full sized coloring pages.
I hope to have pages completed and ready to scan next month. My original goal had been February, that was ambitious!
I got a new computer this week, which I’m loving so far. For 12 years I was a Mac user and I’ve returned to the PC world. This was mostly a financial decision, but I’ve been also looking at part time jobs, all of which require knowledge of Office.
I’m hoping it will help with my productivity. Right off the bat I did not have to open my word processing app 4 times before I could actually use it, which is a huge time saver. I’ve been doing a lot of writing, but I keep getting inspired by these grand ideas, which take awhile to process and write. Which doesn’t really lend itself to blogging.
I will try to include short tid bits of info and updates in the near future. Also it has occurred to me that I have not included a picture of myself yet on this site. Here is the husband and I selfie-ing at his birthday celebration.
