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!
