Last week was a flop.
Why? Well lets just say it ended with me going to the doctor, where I received 3 medications, 2 more appointments, and gave 3 vials of blood for testing purposes. So not only did I not get to go on the long bike ride trip my son and I have been planning for months but we didn’t get to do much of anything else either. Plus the doctor said I can’t bike ride for at least a month (super bummed about that ). Don’t worry so far all minor aliments but they are all making me feel really OLD.
This Week’s Goal
Take a me day
The Doctor and I had a little talk and it made me realize that I need a morning to night me day. I think it has been a year since I have taken one. These usually consist of me visiting a nearby city, enjoying lunch by myself, a bit of thrift store shopping, some reading or some writing in a coffee shop, and dinner by myself before hitting SAM’s for a good bulk food grocery shop up before coming home. Not exciting but needed for mental health.

A Find I Want To Share
I have an allergy to aspartame, it causes one side of my body to go slightly numb. I love chewing gum when I am deep in writing thought but I obviously can’t have the aspartame kind and the sugar kind sticks to my one and only crown which is why I am so happy to have found pur gum. It uses Xylitol to sweeten, tastes great, doesn’t stick to my dental work, and keeps its flavor for hours.
