A lot has happened...

A lot has happened since my last update.  Let's start with the good stuff.

1. I had surgery on my wrist.  It is now unbandaged, free to the air and is capable of moving in all directions - even if I have to take it easy with it while it is forming scar tissue and make sure that it keeps moving in the ways that it's supposed to.  On top of that, I have to massage e45 cream into it a couple of times every day.  It's a bit gross to look at but it's moving, so I don't care.

2. My mum's 5 year anniversary happened.  It was harsh but we got through it.  This was the first year that I actually got dad a father's day card.  My mum's funeral took place on father's day 2011, and my enduring memory was my aunt turning around to me after we got back from the church and telling me that it was father's day.  I had just buried my mother.  Some hallmark inspired holiday just wasn't on my to-do list.  I don't think it was on dad's either.  Mum's anniversary mass usually took place during this holiday as well, so I think it was progress to start recognizing it again.  I mean, mum's gone.  Nothing is going to change that.  Mother's day just sends a spike straight through me, but life goes on, right?

3. The exercise is still continuing.  Maybe not so good this month but having a massive wad of bandages around your hand and pain at the incision site is rather off putting when you get down to it.  I have a fitbit, thanks to a very special birthday present, and I love it and all it's tracking abilities.  Of course, there's been no weight loss but that's just the frustrating side of life.  Oh well.  It doesn't get me out of exercising.

4. Britain voted to leave the EU.  Still have mixed feelings on that one.  Might jot them down later.  Still think that they're all idiots.  Yes, I voted remain.  Oh well....
