You think you understand what that means. I mean, how many times do we say that? But have you really lived that, been forced to own that?
In my mind I am traveling so many places. There are just so many people and places I want to visit and re-visit! Before surgery, I figured recovery would be about 6 or 7 weeks, then I would take some me time, hop in Natasha, do 5 days around Florida visiting family, then maybe a week to Pennsylvania - which is way overdue.
That 1 little trip to the Everglades set me back, muscles on the surgical side, massive pain.
Driving more than around town is STILL uncomfortable and we are at 7weeks 3 days.
Still on pain meds (2, non-psychotic), and muscle relaxer.
When I say baby steps - I'm not joking.
I am one bummed chick! So, I've decided to plan trips I'm going to take when GOD says it's time. When His plans include my travel. I am learning to live one day at a time. One step at a time. One adventure at a time - whatever He feels that should be.
This is not easy for a woman who is always on the go, who fills every moment, who loves doing for others, and LOVES going places! So, I'm breathing and scheming - 1 trip around Florida- coast to coast, one trip to see fall in Pennsylvania, 1 trip to Sanibel, 1 trip to Key West, and oh, how much I want to take that next trip to New Orleans!!! Then of course there is the winter trip to Alaska I am begging God to let happen, and next summer's trip to Mammotj Caves National Park, Chicago, then crossing the US on Route 66 (as much as possible, as parts are decommissioned), then LA to New Orleans, then home!!! As you can see, there's a lot going in in my head!!!
Keep planning and dreaming my crazies! CrazyLady
