I drove myself to the Dr. on Thursday and Friday for my legs. On Thursday I went in for an ultrasound on my legs. Friday I went back for the results. The Dr. who looked like he could have been 15 (very young looking and wearing braces) said that the procedures they could do he felt would be beneficial to me and the way my legs feel. So now the wait for insurance to give the okay and they will call me to schedule the surgery.
Over the weekend I was watching a show on Hulu Plus (we don't have cable or regular tv) and watched a show about Simplifying your life. Most of it was good a little to preachy in some parts as far as environmentalism. Don't get me wrong I do care about the earth but some things are a little too far out there for me to agree with. Anyway it got me to thinking about wanting to simplify my life more. WAY MORE! This will include further de-cluttering and slowing down the pace of life to enjoy the great things around. One of the things I did love was how the lady said ,"Do you work to keep up the standard of life you are use to just so you can't enjoy it? " WOW! That was so true a while back and I think this is one of the big problems with me and many others. We had things that take time, money & maintenance that we just work to pay for them. Yet we are unable to truly enjoy them fully due to working all the time. Vicious circle!
I have been thinking down sizing for a while and being more self-sufficient. I love this idea and this is the direction I am heading.
Now for the de-cluttering. The big part of this will have to wait until I can lift things heavier than a bag of apples. So I am working on the things that take a little less physical muscle.
It just so happens that today I came across this blog called Canny Women.Com . Cindy just started today what is called the Debt De-Tangler . What a great day to find this blog. I think that finances are one of the biggest things that weigh us down and cause stress & unease in our lives. I urge you to check out her blog for daily tips and information on this. If you are going to join her and I in this I would love to hear from you and what you are doing. I think we could be a great support and listening ear for each other.
So off I go to read up a little more on her blog and start moving forward. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
