New Year Challenge

So, I haven't done well thus far with the challenge of blogging for 30 days. After a visit to the ER on New Year's Day, a visit to the doctor, an ultrasound on the kidney in question to rule out a stone and oh, yeah... another trip the ER last night with a CT scan this time around, blood work checking levels for every.single.freakin'.organ, the beautiful invention of pain meds via an IV has only made me a little behind on my blogging. *giggle*

After all the testing, the ER found a cyst on the ovary that is causing all the pain. I'm holy cow... I thought I was in labor last night on the way home from work! To think that one little 3 cm cyst leaking into the abdomen could cause such severe pain. But like I said, thank god for pain meds! The doc shot me up with an IV pain med, sent me home with 2 more and I am doing a happy dance right now. I really can see how someone would want to continue to chase the feeling of this!

I think I will put the 30 days of blogging on hold for a day or two until I'm feeling better. I'm off to take a happy pill then to bed for the night. *grin*

My Challenge to Blog

Life has been SO crazy the past year that in 2010 it seemed that I never had the chance to blog. In reality, I was going through some very rough times with the ex-husband and even though it might have been therapeutic for me, I didn't want to write about all of that "stuff" constantly. With the coming of the new year, I have decided (because I don't make resolutions) to blog more or at least make a good effort to do so.

Because of my non-resolution, I came across this idea and thought "Why not?" So, I will begin tomorrow with the Thirty Days of Truth list (thanks HDW for posting this list on her site):

Day 01 → Something you hate about yourself.
Day 02 → Something you love about yourself.
Day 03 → Something you have to forgive yourself for.
Day 04 → Something you have to forgive someone for.
Day 05 → Something you hope to do in your life.
Day 06 → Something you hope you never have to do.
Day 07 → Someone who has made your life worth living for.
Day 08 → Someone who made your life hell, or treated you like shit.
Day 09 → Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted.
Day 10 → Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn’t know.
Day 11 → Something people seem to compliment you the most on.
Day 12 → Something you never get compliments on.
Day 13 → A band or artist that has gotten you through some tough ass days. (write a letter.)
Day 14 → A hero that has let you down. (letter)
Day 15 → Something or someone you couldn’t live without, because you’ve tried living without it.
Day 16 → Someone or something you definitely could live without.
Day 17 → A book you’ve read that changed your views on something.
Day 18 → Your views on gay marriage.
Day 19 → What do you think of religion? Or what do you think of politics?
Day 20 → Your views on drugs and alcohol.
Day 21 → (scenario) Your best friend is in a car accident and you two got into a fight an hour before. What do you do?
Day 22 → Something you wish you hadn’t done in your life.
Day 23 → Something you wish you had done in your life.
Day 24 → Make a playlist to someone, and explain why you chose all the songs. (Just post the titles and artists and letter)
Day 25 → The reason you believe you’re still alive today.
Day 26 → Have you ever thought about giving up on life? If so, when and why?
Day 27 → What’s the best thing going for you right now?
Day 28 → What if you were pregnant or got someone pregnant, what would you do?
Day 29 → Something you hope to change about yourself. And why.
Day 30 → A letter to yourself, tell yourself EVERYTHING you love about yourself

You can all look forward to this and who knows... we all just might learn a little something on my journey of self-discovery. :)
