Lack of energy

Friday, July 23, 2010      9 comments

We are home safe and sound. DH had rotator cuff surgery this morning and still quite groggy... waking for 10 -15 minutes of alertness before drifting off again. Evidently tomorrow will be the down day as all the various injected and inhaled pa... Read more

I can tell I have changed

Sunday, July 18, 2010      4 comments

Last night we had a tremendous storm that knocked out power all over the place. We were without electricity for over 15 hours and the day was hot and muggy. Luckily we had cooled the house down last night and by keeping everything shut up and ... Read more

Saturday, July 17, 2010      3 comments

In a few weeks, actually Aug. 4th, I will be having my final visit with my therapist. We have been together, except for a six month break, for over 8 years. I am excited, elated and nervous and anxious, but I know because of the work I have do... Read more

News about Friend

Friday, July 16, 2010      2 comments

I talked with my friend yesterday and this morning. She asked the dr. for some anti-anxiety meds and they will help her get through until the anti-depressants kick in. I took her some coffee this morning and she seemed much better. She had a ... Read more

Sad about Best Friend

Thursday, July 15, 2010      8 comments

My dearest friend has so many wonderful talents, is a terrific teacher and met the love of her life about 8 years ago. Both she and her dearest were older and had been separated for years from their spouses. They found such a spark of love in ... Read more

Yin Yoga

After an incredibly active weekend with 10 hours of Anusara yoga (very physical, taxing on body and brain as you work to inward spiral and pull back your thighs while outward spiraling and pulling your shins together while rooting down from your... Read more

Yoga Weekend

When I signed up for the weekend of yoga with Desiree Rimbaugh, I noticed that each of the four sessions were 2. 5 hours long I figured, well, since these are called workshops, there would be a combination of instruction, discussion and practic... Read more

I love yoga. That's important to know. In fact this weekend I will be doing 10 hours of yoga. A nationally known teacher is coming to town to do 4 workshops 2 1/2 hrs. each- on on Friday evening, two on Saturday and one Sunday morning. Th... Read more

Oh, how quickly it disappers

Saturday, July 03, 2010      3 comments

I haven't been on my bike for two weeks since my DH took a spill and dislocated his ring finger. I had been away from it for a couple weeks before that. Did a little stationary bike last week, but it's not the same as being outside. I have s... Read more

Yoga for body and soul

Thursday, July 01, 2010      6 comments

I hated exercise. I never found any physical activity I could do that I was any good at. I always felt awkward and unable to make my body do what I wanted. (Except swimming which was hard to do often growing up in a cold Midwestern state.) S... Read more

Riding in a car

Tuesday, June 29, 2010      4 comments

I used to be able to ride for hours in a car. Now, I have found my legs cramp up after only a couple hours. I was very distressed on our recent trip to move our daughter to St. Louis. I drove her car down and was never so thankful for cruise ... Read more

Working together.

I watched something simply marvelous today. We had helped our DD pack things up, but now it was time for the truck to be packed. Her three housemates and two other friends arrived and in less than 45 minutes the truck was packed. I think DH a... Read more

Overdid it today!

Thursday, June 24, 2010      4 comments

Just about the time I think I have the emotional eating under control, the snaky little beast surprises me. Well, not really surprises me, I just let it take over. Today was very emotional. We are helping our DD get ready to move 6 hours awa... Read more
