Still relatively new to Arizona. I have lived on both coasts...I may be working my way inward now. :) I am the mom of a pretty awesome 17-year-old boy (though at this point he would wig out on my saying boy, kid or anything less than teenager) and the wife of a very amazing man. I have been blessed beyond measure when it comes to love, and isn't that really where the blessings count the most? I like to watch people and often I like to comment. I also enjoying helping people, but I kind of get saddened by seeing the same person always in the same boat.
Enjoy EVERY moment in your wedding gown. You can't stay in it forever...SO UNFAIR!!!!

Just A Minute
Quick little catch up.
In a few short minutes, I am going to share a little bit about the past week. This is my blog blitz which I am doing because work and life has been pretty hectic.
Work has been crazy because we just had a pledge drive which translated into 12 to 14 hour work days. Not horrible for the most part, but a little draining. It is a lot of fun because we get to visit with our volunteers and some we haven't seen since the prior pledge drive. It is a little on the rough side because I spend a significant time on air and it is all impromptu and seat-of-your pants work. The best part is getting to speak to donors. There is something really cool about hearing the impact our station has had on their lives.
Following our pledge drive I had a drive to California to see my endocrinologist. On the way I listened to the audio book "Innocent" by Scott Turow. I haven't finished it yet, but it was a welcome diversion for the very long drive from Arizona to Glendora, California.
Meeting with the doc was great because things went very well. When we measured my neck I found out that since I have been seeing doctor Catz (since June or July) my neck has gone down 3/4 of an inch. That means my thyroid is going down! Yay!!!!!
I am slowly on the road to recovery and couldn't be any happier. I look forward to the day when I no longer have to stress over the bad side effects of being hypothyroid. What are they? Weight gain, depression, malaise, total exhaustion without any reason other than the thyroid, dry skin, thinning hair, and the list goes on and on.
The best part of everything was coming home once to my family, and snuggling in bed with my husband (after a long shower to wash the road off). I HATE not sleeping with him. I never sleep well, and I just miss him terribly. Unfortunately I see the endocrinologist more often than my husband has days off.
Well that is my minute for now. Nothing quippy and cute, but no time for that. I hope to settle in for a good post tomorrow. :)

Welcome to my mind...
What there is of it anyway. I am a person who is consistent only in the fact that I am consistently changing. I am a happy wife and mother. I have been blessed with an amazing son and an amazing husband. They both are quite generous in their love for me, and they both enjoy me for the oddball I can be. I am rich in my life and my experiences. I am not rich in the wallet, but you can't take it with you anyway...so I'll have nothing to miss. :)
