How is everyone doing? I am just trying to keep my head above water right now and unfortunately my blogging life is and might continue suffering for a bit. I’m hoping to find a rhythm with being back in the office full time and trying to continue being on top of house work, family life, and blogging.

Anyway, how are we in the 5th month of the year already! Wow! Today I’m linking up with one of my favorite linkups, Currently.

/consuming/ I mentioned before that I tried Spindrifts recently and really like them. Pineapple is my favorite variety so far!

/exploring/ some new podcasts. The Orange Tree and Do No Harm are both really good true crime podcasts I listened to recently. I’m starting another new one a coworker recommended called CounterClock: Season 3.

/getting/ tired of wearing a mask 8 hours a day at work.

/hoping/ that physical therapy and the steroid shot I got yesterday will relieve the pain I’ve been in again lately. Last year around this time, I had this same sciatic nerve pain on my right side (due to a slightly bulging disk) and after an MRI and 6 weeks of physical therapy it went away. Over this last year, I’d occasionally have flareups, but I would do my stretches and exercises and it would get better. However, this last month I’ve been doing those to try and alleviate the pain, but it hasn’t helped so I visited the dr yesterday and I’m trying option 1 which is a steroid shot and a few weeks of PT. If that doesn’t work, we’ll go with option 2, which is the epidural route.

/seeing/ a light at the end of the tunnel with COVID. A lot of businesses around town aren’t requiring masks anymore. The doctor yesterday shook my hand at the beginning and end of the appointment. Little steps towards ‘normalcy.’
