Getting Better  

Posted by brookeaprilrain

This week has already started to get better. I had a very good conversation with my Brother Bill this morning. He's very insightful on matters of life and living. I just never get to talk to him so I didn't even know that about him. The fact that people think emotionally and not logically never occurred to me. I think with a lot of logic, and I accept that people can and will be critical of me at times. So, I'm very open to criticsm from others. I hear it on a daily basis so...maybe that's why. I just never realized that I'm that much different than other people. While I'm sitting here thinking logically about things, other people are thinking emotionally about things. I'm just really going to be careful about how I approach people. It's so hard to talk to people about anything really. There just seems like there is so much energy involved in talking to people about things. I guess it's no wonder I often just let things go. It's just too much to deal with. Anyways, it was a very cool conversation, and I would love to have more of those conversations with my brother.

As for the rest of the weekend it was crazy. It turns out that I was added to the rental insurance. So, I'm in the clear on that, but there is a $500 deductible and all I can think is. OH Crap! Oh well, you can only do what you can do. I'm just thankful I'll be able to get something recovered.

Also, Sunday was really cool. My room mate and I were asked if the members of the ward could come over to our house for game night. It was a lot of fun. We played Disney Trivial Pursuit which took FOREVER. We played TV Scene It, and Harry Potter Scene it. After that we watched the movie "Stardust" That was a lot of fun. What was even more fun, was we also went to the park by my house. That was fun because we all got to walk around to talk and get to know each other. I had a lot of fun doing that just because I got to know people from my ward better. I also was given a calling yesterday. My calling is now 'Public Affairs', and it sounds pretty awesome to me. I'm just excited to have a calling now, it's been a while since my last calling so I'm looking forward to serving.

This weekend just really was a lot better, I did have a hard time falling asleep most nights, but that's understandable. Last night was a lot better, and I was able to fall asleep a lot easier. Hopefully it continues to get better.

I also got a phone call from my surgeon, he's really taking an interest in my case. Mostly because in the MRI it shows that the ligament is completely torn. He wants to talk to me on the phone about all of my options to make sure that I do what's right for my knee. I have to say it will be nice to play volleyball again once this is over. I'm sick of my knee just randomly giving out. It hurts so bad when it does...and it's cool that the pain goes away after 10 minutes, but still I'd rather not have the pain at all. You know? Anyways, that's all from me this week.
