FreeCycle: Downsizing & Paying It Forward!
Monday, May 10, 2010
I just LOVE Freecycle! www.freecycle.org/
Rather than just plopping and dropping off bags of "stuff" anonymously, it is so cool to touch base with folks during the process of posting and arranging for passing things along. In doing some spring cleaning I came across some 2X / size 18 shirts that I should have gotten rid of long ago. I discovered another case manager who was looking for clothes for her client just as I had been looking for a TV for one of my clients in the recent past and managed to get one through Freecycle. A few weeks ago I unloaded HUNDREDS of music cassettes as I no longer own a cassette player...brought lots of smiles to some fellow...doubt his WIFE will smile when he comes home with all of THAT...lol! The personal touch...paying it forward...it's all GOOD!
Made up my mind I couldn't just sit around cringing over the possible aches / pains I might suffer if I worked out so I hopped onto my 'mill tonight for an hour...felt GREAT! Enjoyed James Taylor's song "Never Die Young" ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=
) which to my ears sounds like: "Live your life with as much youth and vigor for as long as you can!" Had another round of PT this a.m., added another stretch, got another piriformis (yes, my butt...lol!) massage. Finished off the steroids today. We'll see how things go. I'm quizzing my bike club members to see if anyone else has dealt with this.
Time for my bedtime stretches and a good night's sleep...!
Keep on SPARKIN' everyone!
