It's been over two weeks since I've posted. So what have I been up to? [besides soap operas and bon-bons, naturally]
Well, perhaps best of all, I started running, again.
By running, of course, I mean very slow jogging. But, I've been jogging very slow for 20 minutes at a stretch, for two full weeks, and still getting through the rest of the day. And I'm only sleeping a mere 8-9 hours. It gives me that feeling of euphoria you get when you've had the flu for two weeks and you finally get better.
So, only 5 months later, my body and our bank account are both within sight of full recovery. I have full sensation in my fingers. I'm sleeping with my arm under my pillow again, although my left shoulder is still a little stiff. My cheeks are still a little sore to the touch; my jaw is a little weak (it gets shaky if I spend several hours talking); and my salivary glands still sting (embarrassingly weird to say that out loud, but my family has gotten used to me flinching at the start of every meal).
We're six weeks into school and it's going great.

Today we took a field trip to a dairy farm.
We got to pet baby calves and see the milking process up close. The free samples of chocolate milk at the end were a big hit.
Other than that, I've been working on a writing project to be revealed later this week.
Health is such a wonderful thing!
