A Clean Room is an Inspiration

Sunday, August 08, 2010

I finally was able to get my living room furniture moved and do a thorough vacuuming. Didn't find anything exciting except lots of dust bunnies. After polishing the furniture and dusting all the surfaces, I am sitting in relaxed mood watching Masterpiece Theater in a lovely clean room, feeling absolutely wonderful.

    How wonderful to have a truly clean space to sit and relax in! I still have various piles of clutter that I need to deal with, and my floor would be a lot cleaner if I could teach my cat not to shed...
Hugs, Leslie

    Sounds very nice!!!!! LOL...Don't you wish it could just STAY that clean and shiny!!! Well...maybe not because then it wouldn't have that 'lived in' look. I will rephrase..."Don't you wish it could just STAY that clean and shiny at least for a few days?" Have a GREAT week!

What friends are for

Saturday, August 07, 2010

I just returned home from a 2 hour lunch with my three best friends.... the women my DD calls the Four Moms. We have daughters ranging in age from late 40's to mid 20's. We obviously have known each other a long time. We all have been or are teachers. We are as different as can be in so many ways and that is the very strength of our friendship. We have found in each other the listening ear, the caring heart, the comforting hug and the joy of laughing so hard that the kitchen staff at the restaurant wanted to know what was so funny. And, of course, you know it was one of the conversations that led the hilarity that was impossible to explain. I am sitting here just glowing in the warmth of friends. I wish each of you friends like mine.

    When I was in my twenty's I had wonderful girlfriends like you have. But I'm ashamed to say I have let my career take center stage and now only have acquaintance's. I miss having girlfriends.

    Isn't it awesome when we make the time to "smell the roses". You are so lucky to have these women close to you, so you can laugh together and cry together. Girlfriends are the best!!!

    How wonderful that you are able to get together with your friends! I have good friends like that, but they are scattered far and wide, so we can't just get together for lunch. It sounds as if you had a great time!

Good news always makes me feel better

Friday, August 06, 2010

I have been suffering from immense fatigue the last 2-3 weeks. I made an appointment for a check-up with my doctor and also mentions it to my therapist. Since all my tests came out normal, the consensus was a problem with my meds. I have decreased (at psych's suggeston) my anti-anxiety meds by 40%. It should take a couple days to make sure. However, in 24 hours I am already feeling better. I want to take a little nap, but I don't feel totally listless. The good news about my physical health helps, I think.

  


Yoga as healing - the rest of the story.

Thursday, August 05, 2010

I opened my mail box this morning and found a note from the friend I had meditated and done yoga with 2 days ago. The envelope contained a small card with an exquisite abstract water color of read and yellows. The note on the reverse warmed my heart and hope didn't inflate my ego.
"Carol,
Thank you for yesterdyay - all of it! I did yoga on my own this morning about 10:00 AM AFTER Rosie (her little dog) ahd I walked a mile. Love you bunches."
Somehow, if you pay attention to your heart and spirit, you find yourself in the right place at the right time with the right gifts. I thank whatever power it is that got me there that day!

Graduation --- of a sort!

Wednesday, August 04, 2010

Today was the big day.... my last scheduled appointment with my therapist. We have been working together just a little over nine years and I have grown from a scared 9 year old girl into a grown-up who can't quite believe sometimes how well I can handle myself. We had a glorious talk about the process we went through together and had a good cry and several big hugs at the end. When i got out to my car, the radio came on to the station it had been on when I turned off the car. It was a full orchestra playing "Pomp and Circumstance," the traditional music played at graduations around here!

    What appropriate music!!
I'm sure you'll still be able to call your therapist if you feel you need to, at least I would hope so.
Hugs, Leslie
