Celebrating success

Ever had a day where you feel FIT? Today I did, thanks to a kind woman and some hard science. The lesson of today: The power of suggestion — of confirmation — is an amazing thing. When I saw my pre-surgery X-ray, actually saw how there was something even a lay person could recognize as … Continue reading

Focusing on what is

Focusing on what is

We got together with the vegan MeetUp group tonight and the “vegan baby” was show stopper yet again. While the Little Guy and I were stilling with one of the event organizers, she asked me if my husband and I wanted more children. The question is coming more and more as our son grows. “We … Continue reading

Hip, hip, hooray.

Hip, hip, hooray.

Sometimes during yoga practice I feel like my teacher has designed the whole class just for me. Today was all hips. “Hip, hip, hooray,” she said, explaining that the start of the school year gave us all a chance to think about what self-doubt we’re carrying and let it flow out of our bodies. That … Continue reading

Best Monday in … maybe ever!

Best Monday in … maybe ever!

Today was the best Monday I’ve had in I don’t know how long. Nothing exceptionally wonderful or even remarkable happened by “normal” standards. But for me, it was amazing. We got up early to take Einstein the Prius (our family car) to the doctor (Toyota dealership). En route my husband dropped me off at the … Continue reading

It’s hard for me to believe in some ways that it was one year ago today my pelvis was surgically stabilized. After everything that’s happened since I learned I had a separated pelvis 19 months ago, sometimes it feels like a decade has passed. Mentally, breaking things up into phases — as I often referred … Continue reading

The last few days have been busy in the best kind of way. On Sunday, we took the Little Guy to see a soccer game. We saw the KU women’s soccer team host the University of Nebraska-Omaha. My husband went to school at UNO and worked as both a student worker and professional sports information … Continue reading

Playtime

Playtime

This is my favorite time of year. The marching band is practicing all over campus, everything looks gorgeous, it even feels like fall here this week. AWESOME! I’m peppy — really peppy, like I used to be. During work today I got to take time to take all of that in. Last year I didn’t … Continue reading

From walker user to move-in pro in one year

From walker user to move-in pro in one year

Until about 10 p.m. today I felt like She-Ra (Thanks to Internationalhero.co.uk for the image). Do you remember her? The Princess of Power who was He-Man’s female counterpart? Anyway, when I was a kid, she was a badass who could do anything with a terrifically catchy theme song. And today, for 13 hours, I felt … Continue reading
