I am 6 weeks post surgery. Life is sort of getting back to normal. It took longer than I thought it would. It has been a whirlwind of emotion and experiences, and I hope to settle down and get grounded for a bit.
We went on our annual road trip to South Carolina two weeks ago. What a great trip! The weather was AMAZING. We were able to go to the beach every day, ride bikes, golf, walk, rent boats and fish. We crammed as much as we could into our 7 days there. And we drove, which was once again a great adventure. When stopping at a gas station in the Blue Ridge mountains of N.C., one of the kids, upon hearing the strong southern accent, asked, "what country are we in?".
Once we returned, I spent a day at home doing laundry, shopping and repacking, as I headed right back out for my second 5-day yoga teacher training. I just got back Sunday evening, and I am still whirling and spinning from all of the information I received, the emotional journey I experienced, and now the harsh reality of freezing cold weather. I really like 70.
I want to thank all of you who sent love, good wishes, prayers and positive energy my way over the past 6 weeks. I have felt so much love and support, so much awareness and understanding. I am getting used to my altered image in the mirror, and doing my work to figure out how to love it. It is a bit like learning to love stretch marks and loose skin after having kids. You know it was worth it, but it doesn't seem quite fair.
Love to you all,
