This is a photo of the "green drink" that is part of my attempt to ditch the ten (10) pounds (!) I gained in December. My friend, who is a personal trainer, sent me a list of suggestions, and this drink was on it. The drink is blended spinach, kale, parsley, cucumber, lemon, apple, and blueberries. It actually doesn't taste bad, it just looks disgusting.
There is a topic I want to write about here, but it would take some time and emotional energy and I haven't had either. Perhaps this weekend?
January and February are traditionally difficult months for me, and this year is no different.
Did I tell you that my best friend at work retired last week? She is a dear friend and her presence at the hospital is missed by all, but by me maybe most of all, because she is my friend. We will still be friends, but it will be different. We will meet on Saturdays for an early morning movie ($4), or on Sundays for mass, as we have been doing for year.
And bless her heart, she got to retire on her 50th birthday. Because, unlike me, she started her one and only career in her early 20s, and just stuck with the same job all that time. She got promotions all along until she made a nice salary. She bought a condo when she was in her 20s, it is now paid off. Unlike me, she did not decide to move into a grander residence, with a grander mortgage. She did every smart thing that I have failed to do.
It is not good for me to compare myself to others. As they say, if I compare my insides to your outsides, I will always come up short.
OK, gotta go run now and hope it lifts my mood.
God bless you all. Thanks for reading.
