A Clean Room is an Inspiration

Sunday, August 08, 2010      3 comments

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... Read more

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... Read more

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 dec... Read more

Yoga as healing - the rest of the story.

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... Read more

Graduation --- of a sort!

Wednesday, August 04, 2010      3 comments

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 c... Read more

Yoga as healing

Tuesday, August 03, 2010      3 comments

I was a little disappointed when nobody showed up to my Wake-up yoga class this morning... I usually have 2-3 that always show up. I did a little yoga on my own and went home. Later I went to visit a dear friend who is having serious emotional... Read more

Sad Day

Law school only lasts three years, but in that time DD made some of the best friends of her life and those people have become a part of our lives as well. They have spent time with us during State Fair visits, one of them lived with us for the ... Read more

What a week!

Monday got a call from one of DD's former housemates. He is on the very short list for a job in our town and the lease is up on house. He would have to move all his stuff home to Florida or... so he is storing his stuff in the university town ... Read more

Taking a step

Tuesday, July 27, 2010      4 comments

It's amazing. Your car makes a noise, you describe it to the mechanic, you bring it in and ... no noise. I can't say my fatigue has completely gone away and I have spent a rather quiet day... just one yoga class and one vet visit. Of course, ... Read more

Good ideas from responses

Thanks to all of you who strongly suggested I see a doctor about my fatigue. I ended up teaching two yoga classes today and did arm strengthening exercises and all I could think about was trying to get a nap in. There's laundry that needs to b... Read more

At least a walk

Sunday, July 25, 2010      3 comments

The weather is beginning to cooperate to make a bike ride for cardio possible. DH is recovering nicely and suggested I go on a ride while he attended a board meeting for the local tennis association. I still couldn't muster the energy for a ri... Read more

Lack of energy

I don't think I realized how nervous I was about DH's surgery... although there was no real reason to be. Also being at the surgery center at 6:15 and then making sure DH had all his meds and ice packs on time. Plus, the surgeon recommended he... Read more

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

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

The gifts of therapy

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
