not happy! not liking this! not not not going to google orthodontic implants! maybe!
also did i mention that whoever took the garbage out yesterday morning put the wheelie bin right in my blindspot so i knocked it over when i backed out, breaking my rear view mirror on that side and spilling garbage on the ground including broken glass which cut my hand when i picked it up which i did not notice until i used the hand santiser at the kiddo's school and it stung like crazy?

part of it is that my husband had a bad fall on the ice (thanks, church on our corner, for shovelling and salting your parking lot while leaving the sidewalk a mess - that's real community spirit!) and bruised his lung and surrounding tissue, so i am doing double duty on chores (leaving the house at 7 o'clock in the morning to take the kiddo to school, two days of solid cooking & cleaning prior to a family event, up till 1 o'clock in the morning doing laundry, yadda yadda), part of it is the ongoing difficulty breathing, part of it is the time change (they should not have made us "spring ahead" so early! waking up in the dark is torture), part of it is my sense of impending birthday.
all of it adds up to ugh!
and, today i am getting my braces adjusted. fun times. so i am spending the day pigging out in anticipation. i justify this by the fact that i won't be able to eat after, and considering that once i almost passed out after an adjustment when my blood pressure got really low, i think i need to eat. also, if i'm going to risk yoinking a wire on some popcorn, it had better be on a day they're getting played with in any case!

meanwhile, the warm weather has tempted me into getting more exercise, walking to work. it's really such a lovely time of the year, the sun sticking around for more of the day, green shoots starting to appear! i picked up a few trays for starting seeds on our windowsills. i can not wait to garden again, allergies or not!

was great, and roast lamb and green beans for dinner last night,
delicious and nutritious! it's nice to be able to do more chewing again.
i have been horribly short of breath for the past few days though, which
is annoying. i'm off to pick up a fresh inhaler - maybe that will help?
i wonder if i should go back to allergy meds... it's snowy here though,
so i can't imagine what might trigger a reaction!

the only other changes lately is that i've been eating poorly, but taking my vitamins more diligently. hmmm. a tiny bit of good news is that the health food store finally restocked barley flakes, so the kiddo and i can get back to our regular breakfast porridge routine (my fallback breakfast - cinnamon toast - isn't particularly nutritious).
