Life happens and then all of a sudden I realize that I have not posted anything in one week. I don’t want you guys to forget about me and find another blog to read, plus I miss all the terrific comments. I have learned and grown so much from my post and the responses to it! 🙂
What has been happening is work has gotten really busy and after I goofed on a couple of things I am making sure that I am dedicating my time at work to work (what a crazy idea! lol). I also have stepped up my hip exercises, and have been working more on my mosaics. But all of that is no excuse not to make time to something I love: blogging!
So here are updates relating to previous posts:
On The disappearing Act https://blessedwithastarontheforehead.wordpress.com/2013/06/26/the-disappearing-act/
Since I could not let bygones be bygones I went straight to the point and asked Mr. Disappearing what happened. He said that he is having medical and care issues with his mother, and he also added and I quote: “I felt you are still not over your last boyfriend. Dragging things and hopping maybe is going to turn better is not something i want to experience at this time..”
Fair enough! Perhaps I should have not spend hours talking about Ex on that last date lol oh well, I kinda knew the reason why he disappeared, but it is good to have a confirmation and not wonder anymore.
I continue to do physical therapy, now once a week instead of twice. It has gotten a lot better, but I am still not 100%. What plagues my mind is the question: Will I ever be 100%? I try to be positive and I know the reality that the answer to that question depends solely on me. So I am doing my part! I am following my exercises and stretches to a T. I have also started using my elliptical machine again. My aim is 30 minutes, but for now it is until my hip starts hurting which is after 15/20 minutes. After the exercises and stretches, I am making sure I use a foam roller and I apply ice.
Slow and steady! Slow and steady!
Finally I am all set to start volunteering. After, what I felt, it was a lot of red tape, I will start volunteering at a the Dementia/Alzheimer Unit in a nursing home starting this coming Monday. I will do one evening a week and see how it goes. On Friday I went for an orientation, then and now I am am experiencing a multitude of feelings, anxiety, excitement and nervousness about it. I guess it is only normal to feel apprehensive about something new. We shall see how it will go!
I continue to stop and chat with Milton. This past weekend he said he took the subway to the Bronx and played cards with friends. He won $27 dollars. He said I brought him luck. I am glad to see that he has friends he associates with. Last week he wanted to get me a pink watch similar to the one he has. I declined and said I have enough watches, which is true. I am not sure what he meant by get.
The next 2 post will be update on Ex and Mosaics. Ex’s absence in my life has played a huge role on where I am today. I am getting more and more into my mosaics. They still look like a child’s school project but I am so proud of them. Stay tuned…
