life, up until several years ago. I cringed at hugs, I never put my hand on people when talking to them, and I certainly had never kissed any of my friends
(Relax…no tongue J) But my awesome friends taught me about those things and now it’s just a natural way of expressing how I feel (well, except for the kissing. I hadn’t allowed that much until my bday, and then bam!) Anyway, back to L.P. and her pulling away when I hug her goodbye, etc. Now the joke with her is that I try to plant one on her lips. You should see her face. It’s like I’m trying to rub dog shit in her face or something. It’s awesome and priceless.
So, that’s where her ringtone came from and we both got a good laugh over
that one. She’s a great friend. Not only because we have so much in common and crack each other up, but I love her for showing me the world of Autism. After Caleb was diagnosed, I couldn’t talk about it without crying for over a year (and off and on since through now). I went to an Autism Support Group, and Kim was the one conducting the meeting. We then had a play date w/ the kids. I walked away from that play date a totally different person. It was
as if an elephant had been lifted off of my chest. It’s because of her, that I began my journey of healing…and dealing with Cal’s diagnosis. Okay, my intention was just to say I had a good talk w/ a good friend. But now you know the story of me and my Life Partner :)
I feel so very good about my eating right now. I can already feel the change in the swelling of my hands. This is only day 4. That’s how quickly eating better can make a difference in our bodies. I wish each day meant a pound lost, but that’s not quite how it works. But thankfully, I’m feeling better all the way around from just these few days. I’ve only had (1) 20 oz. Diet Coke a day this week, too. I wanted to be off it all the way, but I’m not there yet. Cutting down really makes a difference, though. I know I’m not in the “perfect zone” for my diet right now, but I’m happy with it. This week is “good.” Maybe next week will be “great!”
I hope you all are doing great. I must tell you how much I’ve been missing everyone lately…. Really, really have. Thanks for sticking with me guys. I know I’m not always the easiest person to stick with, but especially if you follow me on here, you’re there through it all. I so appreciate it. I’m hoping to make you guys very proud, very soon.
