I am having a crabby week

I decided that I am having a crabby week. Why you ask? Because my stupid health is running my life. I am sick of doctors, pains, pills, co-pays, medical procedures, and all the related stress. I am supposed to be getting better and getting my life back and I have already been to the damn doctor 24 times since January. Yes, some of that was PT but still too many damn trips. You get to a point where even if you are going to the doctor for a relatively minor issue - say skin rash or a PT visit - its a mini trip around the roller coaster and it brings emotions back to the surface. I think one of the best ways to to be stressed out health issues is to stay far away from all medical professionals for an extended period of time. Right now I would be happy with a three month break. But I don't see that happening any time soon. Sometime in my life (like 2 years ago), I could go months without going to the doctor. Now I am there so much I notice when they get new valet parkers at the hospital and when the lady at the pay station for the parking garage gets a new hair style. Enough whining and being crabby for now - but I am sure it will recur.

On today's news there was a story about the President and Vice President stopped for burgers yesterday at a place in Virginia. They stood in line like the rest of the world and paid for their burgers themselves. I think this is great except two things - they need more vegetables. It appears they got burgers with lettuce and tomato but no side salads. They should be setting an example to the American public on eating their 5-8 servings of fruits and vegetables each day.

Also, can you imagine the conversation at the White House with the secret service:
Mr. Obama: "Hey, we want to go for some burgers for lunch. Road trip everybody."

Mr. Secret Service: "I'm sorry, Mr. President but we haven't checked out that place."

Mr. Obama: "What? This is a spontaneous trip, no one will know where we are until we get there."

Mr. SS: "We need to check these places out before you go in. Please wait in the car."

Mr. O: "Make it quick, we need our burgers."

Just a quick glimpse at the human side of the new administration - but they should eat more veggies!

Now it is possible some of my crabbiness is a result of being over scheduled. Today I have work to do at home and then am volunteering all afternoon at a conference before I go to an evening volunteer meeting for another organization. Then tomorrow morning I am volunteering all morning from something like 7 am until 1pm and then will go to work from 1-7 and then pick up Walter at the airport around 9. Perhaps I will be tired on Friday. But I can't be because I have a job interview that I have to prepare for. I definitely see more crabbiness looming here.

In our lives, we suffer a lot.. We walk through on several trials, that causes us to give up. Sometimes we think life is so unfair because of the hindrance we've been through. We struggle a lot to survive, but when things went wrong and everything is gone, we find someone to blame on and ask "why me?"..But things are just not constant, things may come and go, if not today, tommorrow, or never. But we need to value things that comes along our way, looking back the past may serve as our guidance to a new and better path forward..
