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. :)
