Winter slumber

I feel a bit less stressed, but it is probably due to it being
the weekend. This will probably go away, as I go back to work
tomorrow.

I have such a love/hate relationship with work. I really do like
my job, and I'm pretty good at it. On the other hand, I can't do
a bad job (and still respect myself), so I take on too much and
worry about it too much. I've been dreaming a lot lately of what
it would be like to not have to work, and to be independently
wealthy. But it is just a dream, I don't have a way to make that
happen.

Yesterday morning, you could still see the grass, and it was still
slightly green, so in spite of the cold temperatures, it was easy
to deny that it was really winter. Then it snowed about 3-4 inches
yesterday and now it is really full blown winter. This snow will
stay, it wont be warm enough to melt off, probably until March.
I haven't actually gone outside yet, since it snowed. Maybe I can
pretend it is just a moving picture outside my windows....

Tomorrow I go see the foot specialist, and see if what is wrong
with my ankle and foot that is keeping me from walking much these
days. It is making it hard to exercise, and to get around.

I still dream of going to London next year, and I am determined
to do what it takes to get walking again. There has to be a way,
hopefully one that doesn't involve another round of surgery on it.
I've gone a whole year with no surgery, and I definitely prefer it
that way!
