It seems I have fallen out of the habit of writing regularly and I don’t like it. It’s not like it has been a conscious decision but between the sad and whatever the current distraction is…..I am not writing like I should. I need to fall back into the habit again….
The current distraction is tough to walk away from. The girl and I have been watching the Olympics every night since it started. The ice skating is our favorite with the snowboarding coming in a close second.
Last night’s halfpipe was so intense….it was giving me anxiety. It was a great moment when Shaun White won the gold….I was even misty eyed. The two of us truly can’t handle the pressure. If someone stumbles or falls I gasp and then get scolded. The girl looks away during those times which are hard enough to watch….I can’t help that I gasp. These kids work so hard to get there and when they make a mistake it’s heartbreaking. I don’t get emotionally involved on purpose…..
My car is fixed, I got it back Monday night. The problem this time was the master cylinder. Parts and labor came to $190.00 which wasn’t horrible. It wasn’t great but better than I feared. The car stops now and that’s a good thing.
I didn’t do too much today….with the curse I try not to be out any longer than I have to be. I did have PT and KB over for dinner tonight. I haven’t seen much of PT since she had the flu. She is still struggling with vertigo, I hope it goes away soon. Being dizzy all the time sounds horrible. KB was later than I thought she would be so PT was gone when she got here. I ended up having two one on one conversations over food with my friends. It was nice to catch up.
I ended up sending KB home with the couch slip cover to wash. She is coming back on Saturday to help me clean/organize/purge the basement. I can’t wait to get it done!
I was at the store the other day looking at dried elderberries when Spirit nudged me to buy Hawthorne berries as well. Why Hawthorne berries, I have no idea? I try to pay attention when I get nudges like that so I bought them too. I found an immune boosting recipe with Hawthorn and elderberries that is currently simmering now. I hope it tastes as good as the elderberry syrup I made. Knock on wood…it’s kept me healthy so far….Zia
