Finding a balance

There isn't too much new in my world. I have returned to work-but due to some work conflicts, my schedule is out of wack and I am only working 2-3 days a week. Between work and having at least one appointment a week, I am finding it hard to balance a normal life. Sure 2-3 days a week doesn't seem like much, but it always seems to be the most inconvenient days. Not to mention, the hours have changed and now I am getting home at 5:30 instead of 3. That creates a huge difference in my schedule. I am bed by 7 pm on working days and I just can't seem to get everything done.

As far as health, I am so-so. I went to an endo specialist for the mass on my ovaries, only to be directed to another specialist. That appointment isn't until February 21. So between now and then I sit in more pain than imaginable and try to continue with my daily life. I am also awaiting many test results that will hopefully help explain my right flank pain. Will there be surgeries in my future? Who knows. For right now, I can only take it day by day and hope for the best.

Bringing In 2014

This post is obviously late, but with my schedule it has been hard to find time to engross in the computer.

For starters, I had an amazing time on vacation! Magical does not begin to describe my trip to Disney. Although my trip was exhausting(walking around parks for 4 days was not my friend), I had the most memorable trip of my life.
Here's just one picture from my trip. I will be completely honest, when they lit the castle, I actually cried from the beauty. If you haven't seen it or made the trip to Disney, it is certainly worth doing.

Then we come upon a new year. Reading over my posts from 2013, I had a stressful year. Not only were my situations stressful, but I made no effort to take care of myself mentally or relieve the stress.

Which leads me to my cheesy New Year's resolutions. I am not a huge fan of resolutions, but this year I feel it's necessary. My goal is to do what makes me happy, and to pick up some stress relieving activities. I spend all of my time worrying about my physical health and working, that I don't always take care of myself mentally.

Keep tuned to see what will be new in Rachel's world...maybe some yoga, or knitting? Who knows what this year might bring!
