My appointment is behind me now and I feel so much better. These tulips are for you, and me, to enjoy. Me, for getting it over with and for taking care of myself. You, for being so helpful and kind and compassionate. Thank you for the comments, prayers and positive thoughts. You are precious to me. I don't often meet people who "get" my anxiety, and I'm sorry that some of you share it, but it's also heartening to know that I'm not alone. If I can help, please let me know.
I appear to be healthy as a horse and now that the anxiety has passed, I'm about to eat like one. I have the first twinges of hunger I've felt in days. I've been in a daze this week, just trying to manage the buildup to my appointment. For the first time in months, I'm between projects. I've finished Heartwarmer and it's even already in use! I can't wait to show you. I'm pondering new projects. I'm getting ready to start a cross-stitch project and am just beginning to think about my next crochet project. I finally bought supplies for organizing my embroidery floss collection. I'm thinking about crocheting a pillow cover for the living room. I've been helping the kids make valentines for their friends and I've got a new blondie bar recipe to try this weekend.
Do you have plans for Valentine's Day? I'll be helping with a party in the LB's classroom tomorrow. On Saturday, we're planning to get pizzas from Papa Murphy's for dinner. We'll have our at-home date as usual. We love to be home together. We finished watching Broadchurch this week (OMG). We'll probably watch some more of our Northern Exposure DVD. I'm into season 7 of Friends on Netflix; I'm mostly watching that one by myself.
I didn't have my milkshake yet, but it's for a good reason. The Bear saw that I was planning to have one and he said he wanted to get it for me instead. Isn't that nice? He's going to Sonic tonight. He said he was proud of me for having my exam even though it's so hard for me. I'm beginning to think my Valentine gifts for him should be a lot fancier...
