Finally here Friday!
Fri, 03-15-2013 - 2:55pm

Whew, long day already but where are you all?  I had early morning clients, worked on costumes at my daughter's dance studio, more clients and done.    No workout today but a weekend of skiing. And, I'm heading out Wed for about 10 days of skiing up north, to finish out the season.  I'm so sad the season is coming to an end!  I feel like I start making progress and then it's over.  Sigh.  I need to follow the snow, except I hate the cold.

Would you believe I am just now getting here because I spent 5.5 hours taking my daughter to the Neurologist today? It was a 1.5 hour drive each way then a 2 hour wait to see the doctor-and we had an appointment! I was fuming by the time he finally came in to see us. This appointment today was a major turning point in my daughter's life or I'd have walked out. We knew today was going to be the day a decision was going to be made on whether or not we can start weaning her off meds. So once the doc finally came in, he examined her, asked a million questions, went over tons of information with me and gave us a schedule to start weaning her down off one of the meds. The other we will discuss in 6 months. There is a high chance (30%) she will start having seizures again but we are ready to take this step. I am still angry that we had to wait so long!

I tried wearing my hair a different way today, straightened with my bangs pinned back, and I was not real confident in it so the fact I was already on edge did not help my mood. 

I'm going to try to fit in a few miles on the tread tonight before the gym closes.

And we have decided to have oatmeal for dinner. ;-)

Jean - it is freezing here, with snow predicted for Monday.m what happened to global warming? I am thinking I cannot do another winter in Boston. Walking today was torture...I could take a taxi, but it is against my rules of life...Karla - waiting is so annoying...I try to bring things with me to o, but it isn't always enough. Hope this goes well for your daughter. I am on vacation! Yay! I am going to the Cape this weekend and Florida next week to see my dad. So ready for sunshine. I went to Zumba tonight, but I didn't enjoy it. I was at the far end of the fault for not getting there a few minutes earlier..but I didn't like the music in the first half of the class and it didn't seem that intense. I almost left because it felt like a waste of time, but I stuck it out. This class isn't one I go to often, and tonight won't change that. Hope everyone has a great weekend!
