Looking at this blank WordPress screen is something I haven’t done in months. In fact, my posts have been far and few between over the last year. I guess blogging lost it’s appeal for me. It’s sad in a way because I really enjoyed it for awhile. I keep thinking “one day I will be inspired.” Maybe today is that day?
I should be inspired. So much has happened to me over the last few months. Back in October, I paid a visit to my doctor to discuss breast reduction. In Canada, if a person qualifies, the surgery is covered under our medical plan. I have always wanted a reduction, but I wasn’t sure if I was big enough to qualify. I really didn’t even know what the process would look like. However, I decided to look into it.
The doctor sent a referral to a surgeon, and I was told it could be a year before I would see him for a consultation. It’s the surgeon who decides if I qualify. I was called in on a cancellation in January — and I was approved! On a wait list for surgery I went. The wait list was fairly long, so I was given a time frame of anywhere between 6 months to a year. TODAY, I got a booking call. My surgery is scheduled for May 17, 2018. In one month, I will not only have a smaller set, but also a more perky, lifted set. To say I’m excited would be an understatement.
Surgery is a pretty big deal, but it pales in comparison to other areas of my life. To be more specific, my love life. It still sounds strange to day it, but I have fallen in love. My last long term relationship ended over six years ago, and dating since has been nothing but a headache. I had all but given up on finding someone special, and then it happened. I met a man with the same twisted sense of humour as myself. We share a lot in common actually. We are both active, play guitar, enjoy our wine, have similar world views, and we can’t get enough of each other. Two mid-40 adults acting like teenagers in love. Here’s another crazy twist — he’s moving in at the end of the month.
2018 will be the year that brought new boobs and a new man. I’m tempted to say it’s been the best year of my life so far. Work has been stressful, but it’s looking good for a substantial wage increase. I’m literally spinning from ever thing that is happening. Two years ago, I was at a low in my life. Fast forward to today, and I’m flying high.
