I have been terrible with the wordpress. I check it, usually, sometimes I forget, but haven’t posted in about 16 years. Approximately.
Everything is going pretty well. I can’t complain. The Graves is doing better, the meds are working, I’m back at yoga, I even took a spin class last week after clearance from my doc (and I took it really easy too), and am generally feeling pretty normal! Yay!.
I went back to Mexico, the same retreat place in early Feb with a different group. This one was local and Yogabuddy J went too. We roomed together. He snored and kept me up, and I was sick and coughed and kept him up. I moved to the couch in the living room which was no big deal, I was just as comfy and it was a big enough couch. The peeps were nice, I did 8 of 12 classes, I got super sick the last day in time to come home. By the time I got to Phoenix (Isn’t that a song? :-P) I was delirious. I could barely punch AmyH’s number into my phone to tell her not to come. I was a mess. Just chatting on the phone was hard. J went off to hang with his friend and I slept on benches in various PHX airport lounges on the way to my gate. Thankfully I was able to upgrade to economy plus to give myself and J a seat between us and the window person and my fever broke by the time we landed in Philly and I was feeling human enough to drive us home. Did I mention I also had the shits and was in the airplane bathroom every half hour or so? That was FUN! Thankfully it was an overnight flight so the staff left us alone and most people slept will I was crapping my guts out, and snoozing when I wasn’t.
So yeah, it was nice to talk with AmyH but I was bummed we didn’t get to hang out for a bit. Much preferable to feverish bench snoozing and pooping.
I am finally putting some weight back on but I’m afraid now it’s just going to be fat and not muscle so yeah I better make an effort to get to those spin classes I have a groupon for. I also joined one of my yoga teacher’s meetup groups which is a hiking/yoga group which so far has been mainly hiking due to it being cold. But since it’s a new group she was mainly scouting out places in the winter for the better weather hikes.
Rocky is great though I think his eyesight is even worse this week. He’s just such a sweetie. But he runs around like he can see and then runs into stuff and yelps.
As always I am still trying to declutter. I made a donation in late January and just scheduled one for April 7th. It might not be as much stuff but I have time to add to it for sure.
Then the next day i go to NEW YORK to see DORA!!! woo hoo! So it will be like a reward for doing some house cleaning I guess. Oh and I WILL have to do some housecleaning because the dogsitter will be there for Rocky. I’m excited, I haven’t seen Dora since her wedding, if I remember correctly, and that wasn’t exactly a visit with her. Then hopefully sometime in May before Memorial Day they will come to my mom’s shore house to visit me for the weekend. I won’t have to clean my house for that! Ha! Plus! Beach!
Then in July I have tentative plans to drive to Pittsburgh to meet up with my NJ friend who lives in KY for a Phillies/Pirates game or two. Another NJ friend who lives in Denver now may also join us.
Then I signed u for another yoga retreat in November in Puerto Rico with one of my yoga teachers. It’s at the place I went to in 2010, I suggested it. So of course I have to go! So far I know of 3 people who are going, me, Yogabuddy M (my roomie) and one older guy who I usually see at restorative on Fridays. and of course the teacher. I hope more people sign up. If anyone wants to go, let me know! I’m serious, you don’t have to be local or even do yoga. It’s like a Sunday to a Saturday, like 6 days. I think she needs 10.
Other than that…. let’s see, I saw a couple good concerts recently. RNDM (Joseph Arthur’s band with Jeff Ament of Pearl Jam) with my sis and 2 days later Le Butcherettes with Yogabuddy J. That was an awesome show. Tomorrow sis and I are going to see Andra Day at a little place across from my chiropractor’s, which is where I am headed after work today.
I should start posting here more often (I know, I say that all the time, well, when I actually post here hahahah) and maybe do some of my SUPER motivating lists.
Anyway I gotta wrap this up and get the flock outta here.
