But that’s OK. I should carry something away with me, right? 6 months ago
even though it turned out to be impossible. It was a good effort, and I am at 59 1/2 as healthy as I can be, given everything. 6 months ago
but now that I’m 59, I can see that I’m not going to get to 60 healthier than I was at 50. It’s just not possible. In retrospect, it was a pretty chutzpadik goal, since health is something we can lose without it being anyone’s fault.
I will be taking better care of myself than I was at 50, and that’s good. 6 months ago
This site got me through some of the biggest challenges I’ve ever taken on. But I had found in the last couple of years that too many of my new projects and goals were not appropriate for a public space, so my use of this site has dropped dramatically. I’ve made some lasting friends here, and I’m grateful for that.

I accept the fact that it may not stay away FOREVER but I know how to deal when it shows up, and it shows up much less often than it used to. Basically:
Every day, without fail.
When trouble starts, stretch and move gently.

a vegetable garden doesn’t need to be big to provide you with a lot of good salad. Mine grows in four buckets on the back porch. 7 months ago
You have my sympathy. Christmas is tough, tough, tough.
I would be tempted to say, Look, folks, it isn’t my holiday. It’s your holiday. I can be gracious about [insert boundary line here] but that is all I am willing to do.
But then I’d have to live with the consequences, whatever they are.

I’ve only missed one day blogging during the move. I committed to this at the beginning of the month because i knew that with everything going on in my life this month, I was apt to ignore the blog altogether. I’ve built a nice little thing over there on wordpress.com (http://www.CoffeeShopRabbi.com) and I didn’t want it to die from neglect. Instead, some very interesting things are happening, since I’m writing mostly from exhaustion. That’s ONE way to get around the Internal (Infernal?) Editor! 13 months ago
Well, I’ve done well but the stress of moving and packing and fixing up the new place is telling. I went to the chiro this week and he was able to help some—and 24 hours later, I was feeling it again.
One of the habits I need is to honor my body’s messages that it has had enough. It’s just hard to do that when there’s so much to do. 13 months ago
Wishing your beautiful family many happy years ahead! 13 months ago
because I had piled up so much stuff, and I felt so frozen in the face of it, I hired an organizer to help me.
She was GREAT. She sorted like crazy, I sorted, and once I got moving, throwing out stuff and donating things was easier and easier to do.
I’m free! 13 months ago
I have found a massage therapist who is very helpful. Win!
On the down side, the part of my leg that used to hurt is now numb. Granted, it doesn’t hurt but this is pretty weird. 14 months ago
then I need to pack everything else.

As soon as I have tossed the stuff I don’t use, I have to pack. After I pack, I have to Move.
The new place is wonderful. 14 months ago

I’m feeling my age, and many of the things I have been doing to “get healthier” have become things I do to avoid getting sicker. That annoys me.
I’m going to figure a way to do this with more joy. 16 months ago
