What would you do?

2009 was a difficult year. After the twisted ankle in the Spring, I had a hysterectomy in the Fall. My CFS symptoms have been waxing & waning a lot & have kept me from doing a lot of things. I've missed blogging. I'm hoping to be able to get back to it more often in 2010. Just came across this video today & thought I'd share.

1/22/10: I was just looking at this again & I realized I didn't say what I would do if I were no longer sick. SO here's my list of things I would do: Join the roller derby team, rock climb, run Bloomsday, get a tattoo, join a gym, do one of those hook suspensions, clean my house, work in the studio 8 hours a day, be a real gardener with an amazing flower & veggie garden, take the burden off of my husband, visit friends more, leave the house on my own, skydive, turn the studio into a real live business which would mean also having the clarity to do all the business stuff & etsy stuff, sketch everyday, create everyday, travel, be a better wife & mom, read more. That's all I can think of right now.

I have two tattoos that I got to remind myself every day that I am surviving with what I have. One is in Korean (a language I know) and one is in Japanese (a language my best friend who helped me through a particularly rough spot was fluent in).

To me, those were two of the best things I could have ever done. Maybe 2010 is the year of the tattoo?

I hear you, I have fibro and 2009 has had a variety of shades of hell for me too. That said I had some good times and got some goals achieve as well. My husband is a real cheer leader for me, it's amazing the difference support can have in your life.
