Wow, it’s been so quiet around these parts. March has come and gone. This month was such a big month around here. A month of decisions, beginnings and endings. I’ve been waiting for this month to get here for so long. We’ve been — well, I’ve been — stuck in limbo since about January. Mostly, I’ve been trying to decide what the next step in my career is, while I wait for Alex to finish school and figure out his next step. Decisions are being made though! It’s so nice to plan and move forward.
My patience has been tried so much these past few months. Watching airfare deals pass me by (Peru is still on my mind!), trying not to make plans, and not knowing what’s ahead has made me increasingly frustrated. And as if the universe wanted to teach me a lesson for being impatient, I fell and injured my tailbone at the beginning of the month. So, I’ve been out of commission for a couple of weeks, unable to sit down, write or do anything. Tailbone injuries are one of the slowest injuries to heal. You can’t really speed up the healing process, you just have to wait and let your body do the work. I slowed down, stopped driving, and took some deep breaths as I watched my work pile up around me. The medicine I was on was making me useless and having to be dependent on others was driving me insane. But I learned to be patient, at least for the time being, so I could get better. Things are looking up this week as I catch up on work and I’m hoping for better days ahead as spring comes.
In other news, I went to Seattle two weeks ago and oh man, the city stole my heart. It was my first time in the Emerald City and it did not disappoint. I limped around the city with my BFF Emily and we had the best time! I have a post coming up on Friday on my girls’ trip and a weekend guide on what to do while you’re there. I can’t wait to go back!
Hope you’re having a great week! I’m definitely enjoying the rainy days of spring, the colorful blooms and slightly warmer weather around ATL. It’s almost patio weather!
