Monday, 4/12 Lots of structure today

Monday, April 12, 2010

Hi everyone,

Today was a regular day with plenty to do. We had a special program for the kids at school today so it was a different schedule. I went to the pool after work and got my workout in--I actually swam a few laps with the "real swimmers." Most of my work in the pool are therapy exercises that I do at the side or it is walking, walking, walking. I've been adding in some back stroke though and it was kind of neat to be in the adult lap swimming, even for a limited time. After that, Marissa and Mason had appointments at the eye doctor--those take a good deal of time when they dilate. I had to postpone this week's Vitamin B12 shot because we ran so late--oh well, I'll do that tomorrow. I got home to do a few little chores that I can do from my seat...and I worked on the kids' state taxes. I have a couple of questions on 2 of them and the other 2 are ready to be mailed. That will be good to be out of the way. We have been waiting for a form on ours, but they are professionally done because ours are just too complicated.

My skin is creepy, sore and kind of crawling tonight--and that is in addition to my regular back issues. If you know anyone with fibromyalgia, please be gentle and loving with them because when this junk flares there is no fun to be had. I am going to try for all I am worth to sleep tonight in spite of it. I think I could be more content if it would let up a bit. I need some peace with my body and with stress in general. I got some in the pool today, it is really nice in the early afternoon when there aren't any rambunctuous folks there at that time.

As always, I appreciate my SparkFriends and I wish you all a restful night and a peaceful day.

    I am so sorry that you have fibro. My best friend does too. I know that I can't relate since I don't have it but my heart sure goes out to the both of you. You're in my prayers daily. Love, Dawn

    Ahh, taxes! I confess to letting University students practice on mine free of charge every year even though they are simple, because of my math difficulties.
    I hope you can get some rest in spite of that awful feeling :(
