Happy Labor Day

Monday, September 02, 2013

Here in Mexico it is just another Labor Day. The Mexican Labor day is in May and there are plenty of fireworks and such.

Even though I really didn't feel like having the cocktail party here at Casa Watson yesterday, I pushed on and actually ended up enjoying myself and hung in there the whole time. So sometimes you just have to fight it and push on and do all the "self talk" to encourage yourself to take deep breaths and try and enjoy. We had invited a new couple from England that did a remodel of a house down the mountain whom we see everyday on our dog walks. Really nice people and it was fun to learn about their backgrounds and coming to Mexico and such. So I made it from 3pm to 7pm when folks left.

Overall I think I am feeling a bit better today. Still think the symptoms I have are from the tapering off of the prednisone. Thanks to the many of you who have written and shared with me your experiences or share with me others you know and their experiences. It truly helps.

Well hopefully today is the day my FIL gets to stand up. We are praying that he gets the "go head" from his doctor. We will go and visit when we get the call that it might be happening.

Hope all of you have a terrific labor day. Hope you don't have to work and have some nice plans.....remember "step away from the junk food".....picnics are full of them!

    That is wonderful you have met a new couple and could enjoy their company at a social!
Labour Day here in Canada, but I work all Mondays, the club never shuts down except on a Christmas Day.

    Sallie, it's so good that both your FIL AND you are feeling better these days! Glad you were able to get together with your neighbors. A four-hour stretch can be taxing when you're feeling at all under the weather. Happy belated Labor Day! emoticon

    I'm glad you could enjoy yourself. I hope you continue to feel decent coming of your med. (I have no idea about it, but I'm sure it's not fun.) I hope your FIL improves and I'll keep you all in my prayers.

Continue to take care of you. emoticon
