Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Progress is slow, but I am hoping that my reduced PT work schedule this week will help. I moved a DVD player back to my room and it is helping me get a little exercise in. Now to move my workouts to the morning and I’ll be golden!

I was “given” more motivation this past week as a neighbour that I only say hi and bye to felt “inspired” to tell me that she noticed I had lost weight and put it back on. O_o Apparently she saw me 2 months ago and I looked like I lost weight and now I look like I put it back on. Her words not mine … I am not sure why this woman felt the need to enlighten me with this knowledge, as if I hadn’t noticed it myself. I found it a bit forward but was too shocked to give her a piece of my mind.

Yesterday I stepped on a bulletin board that was in my giveaway pile that had fallen over and the result was a tack going into my foot. I can’t remember when I last got a tetanus shot and did not go yesterday. There are not as many clinics open today and this does not qualify as an emergency in my mind. There have been “pains” in the affected leg but I think that’s all in my head.

One of my coworkers introduced me to David’s Tea and I am an addict. Every night I have a different flavour of tea and it’s a wonderful way to relax at the end of the evening. A few weeks ago, we had a conversation about cold brewing tea and surprisingly I had all I needed to start making some delicious ice tea. I have been experimenting with different flavours and have come up with a few hits. Along with some simple syrup and I have great drink options.

I’m still trying to firm up my summer travel plans. I will be headed to Portland, OR to visit a cousin. I just need to figure out when as the dates I gave her do not work. 😦 I need to get on this sooner rather than later as I want to go next month.

Still need to make more headway with decluttering my home. I think I just need to set a timer for 1 hour and put myself in one spot and focus on it. We I have way too much that I am not using or haven’t used in a long time. Next year is go time for the kitchen renovations and I want to have less stuff overall. Less that will be displaced while the renos are happening and less that I have to build storage for.

The local cousin I usually go walking with is leaving on Thursday to go to Scotland for her hiking/backpacking trip. I hope she has a great time. Right now she is in panic mode but I’m sure she will get it together.

I think that’s all for now.
