I did get up and go to Senior Sneakers yoga class this morning. I knew I wasn't very flexible and don't have great balance but that class sure will get me to work on those things. For me to walk into a completely unknown activity is hard. I'v... Read more

Today was a busy one but I was busy at home. I did have some phone calls but did not need to run anywhere to put out any panic trips or fires or any of the other things that elderly parents can do. I've been up and down 5 flights of stai... Read more

Boy when you wake up and try to stand and your ankle feels like you twisted it and your knee doesn't want to straighten out...you know you need a day of rest. I did both my morning physical therapy exercises with 1 lb. weights and the ban... Read more

Today was sort of traumatic. I'm the oldest and don't want to be the one making decisions. I fell back on an old method or coping from when I was diagnosed with a sever case of clinical depression years ago. A lot of the time the meds h... Read more
