My head has been in the clouds, my focus is lost and my motivation got left some where last week. My husband is going back out to sea for a short period. It’s thrown the routine of the house out the window as everything gets shuffled around and we throw things together for him to go. I feel like I’ve lost my head, I’m pretty sure I left it around here somewhere.
So the husband is leaving I’m still finding things to go to the second hand store, and it’s my birthday this week. Just after he leaves, that’s always crappy.
All of our plans for the last few weeks have been blown up or destroyed by my back issues. I have nerve damage in my back and most of the time I’m okay but lately instead of running at a 5 on the pain scale it’s been more of a 8 on the same scale. I’ve been miserable, and where misery happens depression follows. I’m having a hard time climbing out of this one, I mean I will but it’s not an easy climb. Never really is though, is it?

Moving is going smoothly, I haven’t had any trouble with anything I’ve attempted to get accomplished. So far I’m not working against the clock, even though the clock is definitely counting down on our time left in Washington. We have 60 days left give or take. Definitely time to squeeze adventures into daily life.

(Both images are of the beach in found of my parents house, the top is just pretty, the bottom is the water. If you look closely at the second picture you can see black spots in the water, those are sea lions heads.)
