we will be victorious

I wish I could say the long delay in between blog posts was the result of me being pain- and psoriasis-free, that I’ve been so busy living my new and fabulous life that I have just not had time to blog. I would love to say it, but it would be patently untrue.

Un-awesome things that have happened to me this week:

  • Literally crying while trying to button up a shirt, which lead to me throwing it onto the ground, stomping on it a few times and throwing on a nice, easy no-buttons-or-zippers tank top and calling it a day.
  • A lovely migraine with my trademark nausea, light and sound sensitivity, and tunnel vision.
  • Flaring in joints I didn’t even know I had.
  • Having dreams of telling my boss off that were so real, I thought I had done it and expected work this morning to be awkward. (It wasn’t.)
  • Falling into the bad eating habits of my teenage vegetarian foray.
  • Working more than 50 hours—and that’s with taking most of Thursday off. (As in, I went into work for a meeting, and that’s it.)
  • Much, much more!

I can’t complain too much, though. I’ve had some pretty great things happen to me, too.

  • Connecting with one of my National Psoriasis Foundation mentees! I got one who was born within the decade, and she’s really great. Really, all my mentees are pretty awesome, so I have no cause for complaints there!
  • I finally figured out the name (and downloaded) of the Muse song they performed when the mister and I saw them on tour with U2. (Hence, the post title.)
  • Finding a copy of Vegetarian Times with comfort food in it! I can’t wait to try out some of them this week.
  • Teaching Sunday school to a bunch of really incredible kindergarten-age kids and volunteering with the middle school youth group. I love those kids!
  • Getting an opportunity (maybe) that I can’t talk about yet but would be super amazing if it comes to fruition!
  • Reading the many, many awesome patient (and fashion!) blogs out there. Lindsay’s posts—especially with pictures of her adorable ray-of-sunshine daughter Briony—always brighten my day.
  • Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All” by Allan Gurganus. Such a great book

Still, as rough as last week was for me disease-wise, it was still a pretty good week. I think I’ll take a cue from my new favourite Muse song (“Uprising”) and have a really kick butt week. And maybe, you know, blog more, too.
