Getting My Training Wheels Off

 So this past week started off pretty well. I was super duper excited because I could slightly almost walk without crutches. I was the one crutch wonder for a bit there. I was determined to walk by the end of the week because I’m tired of sitting on my bum all day every day and crutching around was way too much work. Which I did accomplish and can officially walk without crutches! Yay me! I mastered rolling around on a computer chair in order to get around the house. If it were an Olympic sport I would with no doubt win and crush everyone in the process. Slept less. Got outside more. Left the house three times this week! Whoa crazy New record. Getting more and more ready to just be able to go back home here in a few weeks. I’m kind of in limbo land because I have nothing to do here. No basketball. Can’t go swimming yet. No family here but I have been spending time with this American family who have lived here for the past 5 years. They have a few kids who I absolutely adore and babysat this weekend. I got owned in Just dance by one of the lil dudes and he claimed he won even though HIS knee hurt. Haha They just so happened to of gone to Iowa State and played football/swam there. Small world! Glad I got to meet such great people in a time in my life I needed support the most! God really does put some of the best people in my life at the times I need them the most J And I now have a car available for my use and I can drive finally! Wooo! Free at last, free at last! I don’t know where I’m going to go yet but I’m golly gee I’m going to go places. 😉 I’m thinking it’s a beach week or something cool especially since my birthday is this week. It’s kind of fun knowing I get 2 birthdays since Australia is a day ahead of Iowa. WOOP WOOP! So when I wake up I get some Aussie b’day love and when I go to sleep the American b’day love pours on in. There are positives to being halfway across the world. Also, I almost fell down the stairs this weekend. Missed a step and bent my knee a bit too far and had a moment of silence for a solid 30 seconds. Haha Oh the struggles of having a surgery.

I’m bound and determined this coming week to get my tan back so when I go back to the icy cold of Iowa I can be like “oh hey, yeah I guess I do have a nice tropical tan, didn’t really notice till now.” I’m hoping by the time I return it will be getting a bit warmer in Iowa because I’m almost positive I will fall as soon as I step off the plane and get to my ride. My team has their final game this coming weekend and hopefully we will play awesome! Really rooting them on so they can play another week in finals.  Can’t go home just yet because I have to wait for my parents to return before me so I have people to take care of me 😉 Wouldn’t want to be at home without good ole mum to cook for me. Dad would probably make me do everything by myself anyway. So as long as mum is home then it’ll be fine. Just messing dad, in case you’re reading this, I’ll put you to work too.  Sorry this weeks blog is late and really random but it wasn’t a super interesting week. I chose the verse below because sometimes I get so stressed and busy trying to do things myself and trying so hard  to get my life back together that I forget that there’s only so much that I can do. The rest is up to God and I have to trust him to lead me through the dark times. 🙂 Peace out until my life gets a wee bit more interesting. Xx ❤

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.”
