Stretching Me Out

The kids have been extra rowdy since school is almost out.  I had three different kids make comments about my belly - the little ones think I'm pregnant and the Kinders know but they asked me why I have two chins and why is my face so round. I know there just kids but it got to me last week so I had to excuse myself from the classroom and cried. I have still not come up with a suitable response. I'm going to ask one of the nicer teachers how I should respond.  They are SUPER smart kids but they lack on social skills.

I have been making a point of stretching daily. What a BIG difference in how I feel and it helps my aches and pains.  I also have been using my foam roller. It reminds me of the evil bands. It hurts to use them but they make a big difference in stretching out my sore muscles. I experience leg and foot cramps from all the walking at work. Plus it is a time to relax and just breathe. I spend so much time over thinking things that its hard for me to calm my mind so this has really helped me to stop for a few minutes and just breathe...

Yesterday was hard. My mom has gone downhill and it's getting harder to see her like that. I think she may have had another stroke because she is weak on her right side. No one has confirmed it but she is exhibiting all the signs. I  going to follow up with her doctor.

I think she's just done. Honestly, I don't blame her and plan on telling her that its okay. That my dad will be there to greet her. I don't want her to suffer anymore and be in any more pain. 

Until next time...


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom. Keeping you in my prayers.

  2. Hugs to you. I know how hard it must be to see your Mom like this.


I'd love to know what's on your mind...
