Can’t say the holiday was great

This has been the weirdest Christmas time ever! It was one thing after the other.

First, my 21-year-old step-daughter announced that she’s pregnant. I won’t go into details, but this is very far from a good thing.

Next, my cat gets sick and we end up having to put him to sleep.

While all this is going on, Ernie comes down with some mystery bug and stays sick for his entire 10 days off of work.

On the upside, Dad and I have been going to the Y  regularly. He’s getting his walking in, and I’m working out on various cardio and strength machines. I bought a book, Full Body Flexibility by Jay Blahnik. It’s a great resource with tons of stretches. I hope to use it to overcome the imbalances that have been causing problems with my gait. If I can’t fix things on my own I will ask my doc tor to refer me to a physical therapist. I also bought a new yoga dvd, Rodney Yee’s A.M. Yoga for Your Week. I think that doing yoga every is a must for me-emphasis on the word DOING.

Another thing to mention on the upside: I made one Christmas card!

  • Love the Christmas card!
    I’m sorry this has been such a difficult time for you.
    The exercise and planned yoga sound like marvelous ideas and fine ways to treat yourself well. And I’m a great believer in physical therapy, should that be necessary.
    Here’s hoping that your New Year is off to an excellent start!

  • I always forget to check “Notify me of follow-up comments…” Checking now…

  • I can’t seem to stop having the all over ache from a simple work out! Let me know if the stretches work for you …at 46 I should have much more balance and be more flexible! Happy New Year!

  • Happy New Year to you too Peggy!
