Home Away from Home

Well I’ve arrived in Texas safe and sound after almost missing my flight. I literally got to the gate just as they started boarding. That’s a first for me. I’m usually at the gate at least an hour before we take off but on the way out of town I remembered I’d forgotten my thyroid medication so we had to turn back around. Talk about close calls, lol.

After that I got to hang out at the airport for 4 hours because Jenn’s hubby, Jeremiah had work and wasn’t able to get off when he said he would. Jenn felt really bad and thought she was a bad friend but I told her she was being silly. I was fine and it allowed me to get through a book, I’ve meant to finish, so I was perfectly content to hang out. Plus, even if I didn’t have a book, I had my laptop and the airport has free WiFi so it wasn’t a big deal. :)

Texas is like my home away from home. It’s so peaceful out here and plus I really needed to de-stress and this is helping. The kids are adorable as always and it’s crazy to me how big they both are. When I last saw Blake he was still crawling and now he’s walking! And Matthew, big attitude change! It’s so weird. He’s gone from the boy who was all “Look at me, Angie!” to “Meh, Angie’s here, big freaking deal.” Lol. I want both of them to stop growing. I don’t like it. :(

Speaking of kids, my results for my blood work came back and it seems the thyroid meds are helping. All of my levels came back normal so I’ll just keep taking the pills. We have a consultation scheduled at the fertility clinic on Dec 6th and we’ll go from there. I am happy that the pills are working. I don’t know what I would have done if the results came back with levels that were still high. I will say that I had a feeling something was off because of my recent weight gain. I usually stay around 98-101lbs and those 3 months I was hovering around 103-104lbs which isn’t the norm, unless I’m actively trying to gain weight, lol. I guess it’s a lesson learned that I should follow my instincts. As for R, he’s doing great with the weight loss. He’s lost 10lbs already and he is continuing to walk at least 12,000 steps a day, usually more. I am so proud of him.

I’ll be in Texas for the next three weeks hanging with my Jennfur. We’re going to see P!NK in concert and we’re going to try to see Thor as well. I spoiled myself this year and this is my third time visiting so I’m going to be sad when I’m not able to come out as often but Ce la vie. I’m just grateful to be able to see her at all. I missed my bestie and I hate that we live so far from each other. Distance sucks.

  1. Living so far from your best friends is hard stuff.

    I’ve got one in Florida (who I haven’t seen since ’06) and one in Pennsylvania (who I haven’t seen since ’09 I believe), while I’m on the other side of the country in California.

    I miss them both terribly, but I’m thankful for the Interwebs to keep us in touch as much as possible.

  2. Distance does suck, but I’m glad you’ve been getting to see her! Living so far away from your best friend does stink – I’ve never gotten to see Shasta in person. One of these days!

    I’m glad that your thyroid medication is helping, and that you remembered it before getting to the airport!

    Children really do grow far too fast. Time flies!

  3. I totally get how you feel re: distance sucks. My best friend lives 5,000 miles away from me now that I’ve moved over to the USA, and as it stands I’ll only get to see her every 1,5 years or so. Being away from the people closest to you certainly sucks, I’m glad you at least get to see her multiple times a year though and that you get to do awesome stuff together (like going to see P!nk! I’m jealous ;-) )

    I hope you and Jenn & her family will have an awesome time together and that you’ll get to unwind a little!
