Went to court this morning. Ethan has my blessing to move in with my mother; I am done with fighting.

Went to a meeting and it was wonderful, then picked up Vivian, visited my mom, and then got vegetables, made a salad and went to my no-knitting group, where I had a great time and knit through the whole thing.

Vivian and I visited Ethan after the meeting and he was loving and kind to us both.

Things look pretty shiny.

Pretty awesome day.

 

I completed the work assignment and delivered it, and got great feedback and a second assignment which I will work on tomorrow. Not a lot of hours as yet, but every time I turn in a project timely and well, I get more work, so that's all to the good.

 

An afternoon meeting was filled to the brim with joy and positivity. It was just a great get-together, and lunch after was wonderful as well, a continuation of the good energy combined with sisterhood. As we were all getting ready to leave, i realized I had a text. It was from my former sponsor asking if I was going to make it to our standing weekly meeting. I had twelve minutes to get there and could just make it, so I sent a yes and drove over. She wasn't there, and called me to say a) she wasn't going to be able to meet today and B) going forward we would be meeting with her sponsor together, and her sponsor would be the one managing and guiding the step work; what did I think? I thought for a second and then said calmly, "Well, I think I asked you to be my sponsor not G." Silence, then, she replied, calmly "Well, that's what I'm comfortable with." I nodded, even though she couldn't see me, and said, "I understand that and accept your position. I just don't happen to share it." We continued to be genuinely nice to each other and she wished me well and I thanked her for her sponsorship over the past few weeks. It was civilized and liberating, even if I found her behavior a bit cowardly overall. I didn't expect to be a perfect fit, by a long shot, so it's not as though I'm quaking in my shoes -- that was dealt with on Saturday night, and I haven't felt this great since I don't know when.

 

Vivian enjoyed some one-on-one time with me before Graeme came home, and I worked on a weekly planning sheet while they relaxed. A neighbor brought over a pan of Cocoa Rice Krispie Treats for the kids and I -- a whole pan!! I confess: I had never had a rice krispie treat in my life before. I let the kids have some and then had one myself - they are pretty good. But mostly I was just bowled over with the kindness. The neighbors are a retired couple down the hall and we met by discussing our favorite Netflix shows and making recommendations to each other, and then sharing a love of all things tea.

 

We made some dinner, and I packed up a second helping for Vivian and we all drove over to the evening meeting -- there is one for teens as well and Graeme really likes it. Ethan was there, and he gave hugs all around, and I was totally smiling that my mom was in the alanon room. I can't remember the last time she did something that I thought was positive, for herself or for anyone else, and it was really heartwarming for me. There's a reason it's called Fellowship and not an organization.

 

Vivian and I snuggled and read books and she laid next to me while I knit and she fell asleep. 

 

I feel very centered and whole today.

Yesterday was good, though neither of the kids went to school, so it was a bit discombobulated. 

A meeting, an lunch with the ladies after, and then a nap with Vivian.

I woke up with a weird pain in my chest (right side, so probably not heart, but still wicked painful), and it got worse through the evening. We picked up Teros, went grocery shopping, and then headed home, where I promptly went to sleep.

 

This morning, the pain is still there, so I'm seeing the doctor at 10. Working until then, and the laundry is going, and both kids are at school.

 

It's nice to have Teros here again.

I need a better couch.

Doctor said it's probably a pinched nerve related to disc issues. We're going with a muscle relaxant and PT for now, and yoga and Pilates regimen. Imaging in the future if it persists.

Project complete and turned in. Laundry in the dryer. Meeting today was a wonderful discussion. A few more items at the grocery store, and now I'm watching Scandal and knitting before getting Vivian.

Pinched nerve is a relief!  Horrible painful, but PT and the relaxers should take care of it.  So odd how those things can happen and you don't even know what you did.  Hope it passes quickly for you!

Got up this morning and went to the gym with Teros. We walked on the treadmill a bit and then he did a medicine ball workout while I did some light yoga and Pilates to help lengthen and strengthen my spine and core.

Breakfast afterwards was a banana, 3 eggs with mushrooms and spinach and some tomatoes, and a hearty cup of coffee.

I went to the meeting and it was wonderful, as ever. Now a nap before I pick up Vivian.

Also, Teros brought the good news of Whole 30 to me, and I'm going to put that in place and see how it helps with the puffiness and pain. Goofed this morning by using butter in the eggs dish, but otherwise good so far.

Hi Heidi! I'm new-ish around here but just wanted to say that you're a huge inspiration to me, especially the way you move with grace under pressure. Keep being your awesome self  :smile-new:.

 

I'm a big fan of Pilates, my mom is a certified Pilates trainer (I'm her guinea pig) who specializes in therapeutic techniques.

 

One amazing (and super easy) ways to stretch out your lower back is to put a small squishy rubber ball (about 2.5-5 inches in diameter will work, I linked a couple examples) right in the curve of your lower back then rock your knees up and down. Knees should stay together, the rocking puts different amounts of pressure on your lower back and forces your spine into alignment. It will open up your chest and lower back. 

 

After that you can do a butterfly/buddha stretch (feet together, knees out on the floor to either side) with the ball still under your sacrum.  Just sit there for a little while while the ball opens up your back and chest. Make sure that you're bringing your shoulder blades down from your ears, it will help with keeping the correct neutral spine posture. If this helps I'm happy to ask my mom for more therapeutic Pilates exercises. Happy Mother's Day to an awesome mom!  :smile-new:

My hubby does the thing with the ball but he uses 2 tennis balls taped together then one ball in on either side of spine. He lays on his back and works his legs till in the right area. He thinks it is amazing. Only has to do it maybe twice a year now.

Hi spookyfoot; thanks for stopping by! The tennis ball exercises sound great. I'll definitely add them to the list.

Thanks for the encouragement. This has been a challenging challenge, full of opportunities for insight and personal growth.

I want to come to the slumber party! Can Viv and I do Teros hair and nails?

Do you have a strong enough flat iron for all that hair?

You would need a slumber weekend to do all that hair.

I hate people touching my nails.  It's a thing, I guess?  The idea of a mani/pedi makes me cringe.  Eww.  EWW!  I can say this, though- I'm able to loosely braid my chin hair.

Only tell people one of the PG things we do. ;)

Took the kids to school, then worked out with Teros.

Five miles on the stationary bike in 20 minutes, 20 incline sit ups, 20 curls with 10 pound weights and then yoga.

It's going to be a great day.

(Once I shower - definitely worked up a sweat on that bike.)

Wow, it's Week Five already!

I had an absolutely brilliant morning -- got a note from my boss asking for me to come into the office to go over the massive project she has for me - 9000+ pages, with more on the way. Also, she said she thinks my work is excellent, and would rarely consider giving this project to a paralegal, but would ordinarily give it to a 2L (second year law student), and had I ever considered reading for the bar? Holy cow, I thought. "Yes. Yes I have," I said as calmly as I could. "Are you offering?" 

 

Yes she was!! This is so very exciting and awesome (and scary and intimidating) and supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

 

I maintained my calm until Teros got back to the meeting point and then totally hooted and hollered and bounced up and down in my seat (to the point of accidentally honking the horn) while we drove to my afternoon meeting.

 

YES YES YES.
