I’ve gotten so old that I can never remember just how old I really am. Am I 37, 38, 39??? Well I checked, I’m 38. Nearing my 40’s, not really creeping, more like running. I need to slow it down somehow…so I am! Only I can make things in my life different. I have to put that effort forward. I am.
I’m not going to work as much this year. I am going to make more time for my family as well as make more time for me. It’s so easy to be sucked in, consumed….drowning in a pile of things to do.
I’m changing it. Gradually, slowly, but it’s happening!
I’ve made it to Roller Derby practice for the past 4 weeks (no neuro meds, no pain meds!), Take that RSD! I have taken my children skating, I’ve went to a late night movie…I am purging the things that hold me back, tie me down, make me sluggish and replacing it all with great things that make my life more even…more fulfilling.
So as I sit here with Happy the Hippo (more about that tomorrow), I am happy. Thank you for those that wished me a happy birthday on facebook today!

Happy Birthday once again, to you and your brother. You are always so very busy, with the girls home schooling, family fun, activities, helping others, giving your time and skills for those in need. Your dad and I are so proud of you,not only for sucking up and doing all you can while enduring your constant pain with RSD, but for all you do for others. We are so glad to see that you are finally going to take some time just for You and also spend more relaxing time with your family! Life is too short, enjoy all you can.
