Big doings..

Hi all! I haven't posted in a while because I am actively trying not to be busy so I haven't had anything to talk about... a first for me! I fill up my weekends with errands and appointments and outings and then I don't get anything done at home so I am trying  very hard not to fill up my weekends.

As many of you know, I have plantars fasciitis and have had it for over 4 years. I have had injections and therapy and inserts and exercises and shoes shoes shoes and nothing has worked. Today my podiatrist told me he thinks surgery is my last best option.  It is an outpatient procedure and I won't bore you with the details but it means being out of work for a week, having an attractive boot for 3 weeks and then some kind of soft shoe. My doctor says 8 out of 10 of his patients have the fasciitis go away and the other 2 have some relief. I really don't want to do this but my pain is not getting any better. I may schedule this for April or May and you know me, I will make sure everyone knows!

The other item on my agenda has been cleaning out my basement, hence the staying home thingie. I have done some work but not as much as I hoped.  I am 97% sure I am selling my house around June or July. I am waiting to hear exactly when the end date on the braces is (I am on the 7th of 18 sets)before I decide when to move because...drum roll please... I am 95% sure I am moving to Dallas. I have a few things to work out but it looks like this may be the time to go. I used to pick up and move very easily but now that I am on my own it sort of sucks to even thing about but my new motto is "If not now, when?"

 I read this very interesting article by life coach Martha Beck. Below is a portion;

"You can gain more clarity by getting into the habit of imagining the choices you'd make if you had no fear—of failing, of losing, of being alone, of disapproval. Take a minute now to practice: What clothes would you wear tomorrow if everyone were sure to approve? What music would you listen to today if nobody else were around—not even in your mind? What books, movies, or food would you enjoy if no one ever judged you?

I don't have any other news this week. I know, I know you are all surprised!

  1. You go gurl! No, I really mean it. I love your ending quote. It echos the Course In Miracles that has helped me so much. What would you do if you knew you couldn't fail? Sure does open a whole lot of doors. You make me proud, Colleen. I trust that you will always take care of yourself so no one else will have to. I hope that sounded the way I meant it. Independence and personal freedom are perfect goals. Wherever you go you take all your loves with you. Blessings
