Greetings.

I know life is busy for everyone, especially in the summer when we are outside more, but its getting lonely here. LOL

So please post if you are still here and what you want to see happen at the board. Let us know your summer plans as well.

I'm here, I've just been exhausted from working two jobs. I don't have any plans for the summer except to go to work.

I'm here.....sometimes!

We have been spending loads more time outside (so much nicer with the two little ones so they can run off all their energy!!)

We don't have a whole lot planned for the summer.

Hi, everyone! ;) Found my way back to you, LOL! :P Been busy getting to know my new cell phone, the Samsung Epic. As a hard of hearing person who can no longer "do" regular voice calls, I need a cell phone that has a data only plan. My other carrier stopped providing and switched to a new phone and then wanted to rip me off without a discount and charge me $50/month for the plan. After years of being a loyal customer. So, I went through Sprint Relay, and Sprint has a data only plan and got the Epic which also has a full keyboard as I was used to. Getting used to an Android phone and a touch screen is a total blast and a bit like getting lost inside a scific movie, LOL! :smileyvery-happy: And I've been having back/hip issues and a lot of pain. Kept being told "arthritis" and offered Rx pain pills. Finally complained and now will get evaluated by a vascular surgeon (YIKES! :O) and a back doctor because the MRI showed there's *more* going on than just being "old." Grrrrr! :| Oh, and it's DH's BD tomorrow! #64! So we will go out to dinner, and his sis will come to help celebrate. :P

I had a wonderful solitary Summer Solstice this past week. I missed seeing my Circle; we are small, and others just had some major stuff going on and we had to cancel getting together for our Sabbat. :( I have been doing my T'ai Chi Chih, which helps my low back & hip pain, as well as my inner being. I've added 30 minutes sitting meditation to that, most days. It all helps me keep focused. I added some ritual to those two practices on Tuesday, casting a sacred Circle, and it was truly an amazing practice that day! I felt the energy vibrating through my palms and body, and I felt really connected to the Universe, the Lady and Lord, and all the other Pagans around the planet, connecting to the energy of the Solstice. Wonderful and I so needed this Connection, with the ongoing frustration of pain, not being able to be active. Goddess Bless my Mika dog who has to live without our walks. We both look longingly out the front window, missing our daily "walkabouts." Hopefully that will be resolved or helped by the two specialists I'll see next week, and we can get back to our daily jaunts. :)

I am grateful for my little Epic, in that some days when it's too painful to sit at our computer (desktop) I can still get online on my phone, sitting with my feet up on the couch. Goddess bless technology! :P



Blessings,

Gypsy

Thank you.I sure can use the healing energy! ;) Too much on my feet yesterday, so I am on my cell today, comfy on the couch. :P Got DH's cake made & decorated yesterday plus a grocery run. Today will be a take it easy day to recuperate. Glad to be here. :) Hoping that the two specialists I see next week will offer options so I can get my life back! Please keep the vibes coming ~~ and maybe a few for them, too.


Blessings,

Gypsy
