How is everyone?

It’s been a crazy year, hasn’t it?  I was able to get my old desktop up and running, albeit a bit slow but I don’t need much for writing and it cuts down on net-surfing.  The laptop is in its case, waiting for the price on motherboards to drop;P

I finished up the living history events for the year.  I’ve been teaching boy scouts and many curious people about gathering edible foods from the Northeast in the US. Including; time of year, what part of the plant is edible, how to prepare it. and how to cook without pots and pans.  I’m a wee bit bushed now.  Oh, and I’ve been working in the vegetable garden and have been canning for the past month now on any open days.

Now for the baby update;)  Everything is textbook even with my back being messed up.  The doctor said I’m one of the healthiest women he’s seen in a while.  That kind of scares me, actually, that really scares me.  How bad off are these other ladies?  *shrugs*  I use to, well, still, get in trouble for doing too much.  The ultrasound tech said we’re having a girl and we are thinking about naming her Roslyn, my hubby is going to pick the middle name.   She’s been using me as a romper room and doesn’t like to stay still for very long.  I guess we all came from a padded room at some point, huh? *cheesy grin*  Oh and I’m due around November 9th.

I’m happy this is happening during the summer, even though from the knees down I look like the Michelin man.  I have major problems during the winter with my back going out and arthritis pain. I’m having back problems that are worse than during winter now, so I can only imagine what this could have been like. So yea for good timing and summer!

I think nappy head describes this perfectly, Prue.  I’ve been giving my husband two or more choices on different things like what vegetables he wants for dinner,  because I honestly cannot decide.  It’s too much to think about. XP

However, the mood swings have slacked off.  I still cry and laugh at the drop of a hat, but it’s not as intense and a little more controllable.  So I’ve found between 3 to 6 months my emotions are a 9.8 on the Richter scale.  I wonder if it’s the same time period for other women?

Oh, something a bit funny.  That cat has been bringing me presents lately.  At least once a day I’ll open the door to find a new gift.  So far I’ve received; birds, rabbits, chipmunks, mice, shrews, moles, and a butterfly.  He has been very proud of himself.  He stalks the garden with our dog.  They’re very good hunting companions.  The dog actually trained him 😉 But the cat will go hunting with my husband while the dog stays on the porch or inside watching over me.

How are things going with you?  Any stories?  Breakthroughs?  Family fun? Headdesk moments?  Just need to talk?

I’m at “The Wild Bean”, here in Lewisburg, WV, partaking of their wi-fi services, awesome yuppie food, and great coffee.  Who knew soy-corn-bean burgers could taste so yummy?  Probably the folks who developed them, right?  Anyway I’m downloading all the videos for “How to Write a Series”   because my dial-up falls over dead each time I attempt it at home.  Poor little thing. . .

Lovin’ the Learnin’

I thought I’d do a quick post before calling it a night.  I’m having to dig in my heels, to keep from rushing through this clinic.  I made it to page 19 today and made myself take notes and mull everything over.  There was quite a bit of information on those pages and I want to wring every last drop of it out, so I have more to work with.  Plus, the theories had me reeling Continue reading

I missed posting yesterday and I apologize for that.  So, let us begin with yesterday, Friday, February 11, 2011. 

I woke up groggy, stiff, sore and in the need of some coffee.  I put a pot on and then started the Qigong DVD.  Day one of exercise.  After completing the stretches, soft and soft-hard Qigong movements, and finishing up with the accupressure self-massage, my head was clear, my mind focused and my energy above and beyond what it has been since 2006.
