Calendar Girl

Hi. Hope you are well. Lin says we are up to 85 subscribers (and 111 Facebook group members). Wow. Humbling and more than a little scary. Feel free to make comments and suggestions. Just be kind. Constructive. My Teflon mind is not 100% effective.

My BVS case manager and his new boss were out. She is new to visual rehabilitation and was impressed with all of my toys. She said something about ‘success story’ and ‘calendar’. Apparently my body never rated my becoming a calendar girl but my willingness to use assistive technology may just do it!  Ridiculous.

There are hundreds of thousands of us living the life and getting by every day. Maybe we can all be calendar girls (and guys)!

My habilitation person comes out on Monday. She is supposed to load the apps onto my new iPad. That may be the last I see her for a while. I am supposed to be moved to a maintenance status fairly soon.

Still have not heard a thing from the mobility guy. I know my case worker has rattled his chain several times but it has been to no avail. Wondering if that will happen before summer is over.

I am trying to think of something profound to write about but frankly I am tired. As I said before I have been getting up early to get rides and I have been having full days. I took classes – hip hop and the yoga class that challenges every cell in this old body – yesterday and the day before and tonight I mowed the lawn for awhile. Since my husband was hurt a few new things have fallen on my plate.

I get done what can be done. There is no sense in getting all upset about the little things. As long as I manage to accomplish something everyday it is alright.

It is what it is and it is important to keep things in perspective.

Fortunately I have never been the world’s best housekeeper or the world’s best cook. I don’t have those standards to maintain, but I would bet some of you think you do. I like to be a good Mommy to the Beastie Baby and maintain an active work-out schedule. Sorry to say the walkies are down to a half an hour a night and I bowed out of a Zumba class this week. Need to know my limits. Figure out what is important and prioritize. Listen to my body.

After all, we may get our pictures on a calendar, but that does not make us superheroes! I will keep on keeping on….wisely.
