my old self

The changing of the year was nothing like I hoped for. I looked forward to the quiet closing of an emotional year, and a soft beginning to a new chapter. I got neither.

Holidays have always felt odd, for different reasons. This year was no exception. Add to that, after Christmas I got sick. No happy start to a new year for me. It felt like more of the same 2021. 
It took two long weeks before I began to feel semi normal again. Whatever that is.

I miss the woods. The Labs missed our walks. I miss riding and spending time with our horses. I missed interacting on Blogger, and pretty much everything else. Most of all, I missed being me. I had zero energy. Brad was my superhero! He helped out in every way he could, and was understanding. I had little to nothing to give, altho I tried and did what I could. It was a good reminder, that health is everything.

Happy to say I am more or less back to my old self and feeling a bit like Tank:

I didn’t realize you were sick. So sorry to hear that. We had that nasty RSV back in November. It sure does make you appreciate good health. ‘Im happy you’re back out again, and hitting the trails. You are blessed to have them right there.

We all need to join hands through the internet and sing songs for 2022. Burn incense. Dance. Whatever it takes to make good mojo! Come on, 2022!

Glad to see you out walking again! Whew, that sounds like it was a tough one. I'm glad you are feeling better.
Looks like Tank is happy to be out and about too!

I give your superhero a bunch of stars for everything he did! Wow!

Here is to good health.

So glad you are feeling better! We went through it in December and it was rough. We are also back to normal and grateful for it. Be well

Love the picture of Tank kicking up his heels! He's an awesome guy. Glad to hear you're feeling better. It's no fun being sick but at least you had a super hero to help with things. Let's hope the new year brings lots of health and joy your way.
