The best laid plans......

Tuesday, May 26, 2009

I made up my mind about six weeks ago to start moving again to try to get in better shape for my GD wedding in August and posted a blog about it. Ok - mind in gear and ready to roll. However, my normally cooperative body rebelled and slammed on the brakes! I was ignoring what experience told me was a sinus infection, then my blood pressure went through the roof. Long story short: I changed cardiologists, got put on a new med (which worked!) and found a good primary care doctor to take care of the sinus infection. Two weeks of antibiotics cured that, my BP returned to normal and now I am finally getting started again.

I had lots of hours to fill while I was unable to do anything so really explored this site and my hat is off to their techies. It is just unbelievable how much good stuff is on here. I still spend too many hours on here and enjoy reading the blogs and articles, learning something new every day.

Spring has finally arrived in TN and I will soon have lots of roses. Day lilies are all budding and will burst into bloom in a few days. My favorite time of year!

    Hi Jean, I'm a bit jealous of your flowers and warm weather -I live near the Canadian border- we have had some spring weather but in June it has been between 40-60's. It makes global warming sound like a good thing!! You are using the gentle art of living in the flow of life. Glad to have found your blog!
    Happy June!

    Jean,
    One of the special things about the Over 60 teams is we have perspective. Plans are made and things happen. Our life experience helps us adjust, cope, modify and move on. You sound like you have those skills integrated into your life. Good luck! Keep sparking!

    emoticon So glad you are feeling chipper again! A GD's wedding can make you do a lot of things you normally wouldn't think about! With spring in the air and all the lovely flowers it sounds like the prefect place for a nice walk every day!
    I Love Spring too!
