The one where I’m back

at work after being off sick for two weeks. I’ve never, ever been away from work for this long, except for maternity leave many, many, many moons ago. Overall, I’m glad to be back, I mean, really, how much Martha Stewart and Paula Deen can one take? The cause of this unintentional “vacation” was a bad flare of my ischemic colitis, the worst ever. This has been a chronic thing for me, but it’s becoming more and more difficult for me to manage and it’s been taking me a lot longer to bounce back when I do have an attack. But, I’m feeling better, am back at work, and am going to try to take an easy walk when I get home. Looking forward to that.

A couple of hours later….I got an easy 45 minute walk in after work, it felt terrific. I think I’m hooked on endorphins, I can definitely tell a difference in my mood/attitude for the better when I get some exercise.

Here’s a look at my two precious baby girls together for the first time –

Kind words do not cost much. the never blister the tongue or lips. They make other people good-natured. They also produce their on image on men’s souls and a beautiful imjage it is. Blaise Pascal
