Open book

Since I've been pretty much an open book over the last couple of years I figure why stop now. I'm not sure if it was bad pizza or what??? This morming I woke up with this strong sense of failure. Since discontuing the Chinese herbs months ago my whole diet changed for the worst. I tried eating healthy, but it seems the harder I tried the hader I fell. This morning just slapped me in the face. I'm not only hurting myself, but Emily in the process. The longer I allow 'crap' foood into my body, the longer I stay in the chair, thus putting more work on Emily. Plus, I'm not being supportive of her desire/need to get healthier. Those are my two cents this morning.

What's up?

What's up with me? This has been a funky start to the year so far. I'm really hoping after this weekend life will get back to normal or some semblance of normalcy. My sister's wedding is this weekend and that should be it for out of the norm living for a while. Don't get me wrong I'm so excited for her and her day. Our condo search has ended in a comforting decision. We will put that on hold for the time being and get things in order and go into home ownership more prepared. Going through the process caused me to want to buy in the future so if for no other reason that's why we went through that. Those have been the two main things consuming my life this month. As for my physical update: I'm still going to therapy twice a week. I do aqua therapy twice a month, which has been really good for me. I'`ve been doing more standing and a little walking. I just keep working hard and believing I'll walk again. What a journey!

My return

During the holiday season Emily being a teacher had a couple weeks off. Today is her return to work. I decided I'd take a sabbatical myself. I let myself sleep in, not getting up at the customary 4 am hour, but nearly 10 am most days. Take time away from the computer, I would check email and my sports reading though. Now this morning as I type I feel invigorated with writing again. So the season of rest seems to have served well. I thought about rehashing my holidays for you, but I decided I would keep my focus forward. Staying in the present and future tense at this point of the new year. Let's stay focused and determined all year. Accomplish all that our hearts desire and our minds can fathom.
