I have been busy since the girls got back into school. I am actively working on setting up a routine, to keep me going and keep me sane.
I try to go to the YMCA on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Ride the bike for 30 minutes (usually about 5 miles) then come home and putter around the house. If I sit down, there goes the inertia.
On "down days" I try to keep up with my reading.
I have been to Kaiser Sunset for an appointment with the BMT specialist Dr. Sahibi. I got a flu shot, whooping cough shot, and 9 vials of blood. Things still look good. She did change my Thalidomide from 100 to 50 because of my toes turning into unfeeling stumps. I must say, that the feeling is coming back, and it is a great comfort. The fingers still are numb, but you take the slightly bad to conquer the truly horrific.
Last weekend we had the girls cousins here -- Jay and Alana. Jay can come over any time. Alana needs to calm down and focus on what needs to be done. Five times I asked her to not go in the grass (doggie land mines) and six times she went out there. She doesn't like time outs.
I still get worn out (like now) and I don't hesitate to nap. Sometimes it is good to recognize your limits and make peace with them.
Well, I have to hurry up and relax so we can do Disneyland...
