Stopped short in my tracks
Well. The course was great,surgery was a success and my hearing was restored, however an unforseen complication has left me unable to sit or stand unassisted, walking only tiny bits with a cane and losi g optimism quickly. I'm sick many times a ... Read more
Planning for insanity
I feel a need to plan my week for accountability (ok, and maybe a little sympathy)
- Had a good run Tuesday!
- Today (Wednesday) was a full 7am to 10pm day, so a 'rest' day for me.
- Tomorrow is a packed day, but I... Read more
*tap tap. *Is this thing on?
So I suppose the more things change, the more they stay the same.
I still have four jobs. They're different jobs: research assistant, Personal Support Worker, teaching assistant and respite worker. Still very physical work, too many hours (... Read more

Blessed beyond imagination
I love it when a plan starts to come together....
I moved my family here about 10 months ago - full of ideas that were hazy, hopes that were a little thin and very little idea what it would take to really get settled in a new place. It's be... Read more

I keep saying that, if a person HAS to run on a dreadmill, I have the best one there is - and I've been meaning to post a picture of my view from it. Finally got the technology together (and up off my butt), so here it is:
Brain, why can't we be friends?
I so often feel like I'm battling with my brain. Battling negative thoughts, moods, the tendency to think that EVERYthing is falling apart when one thing goes wrong... (catastrophic thinking - I'm looking to write a research thesis on this in th... Read more
insert a witty 'I'm getting back on the wagon' blog title here. Tis the season!
I've been finding my posts getting a little long winded lately, so I thought I'd deposit some of that nonsense in a blog entry instead. Now I can be INSANELY long winded!
My feet are feeling much better and my 5 week xray looked fine so I h... Read more

Stress and learning
So I wanted to share something about this weekend. I completed my training to be a First Aid Instructor for the Red Cross - woo hoo! I'm so glad I got it done, and so proud of myself for doing it. It was hard for me! I've seen so many people cra... Read more
Birthday fitness test!
As I have done on other birthdays and will likely continue to do in years to come, I gave myself a little fitness test - ran as far as I could ;o) I've been feeling pretty crummy on my runs these days. I've speculated that it might be all the hi... Read more
So, I went canoeing with my 8-y/o yesterday - how fun! A very crisp Fall morning (we even had our toques on!) It was my first time in a canoe since my first wedding anniversary! It took me a little while to get the hang of it again - turning was... Read more
