    Hello all -

    Happy TUESDAY. I write that in caps because, after getting up at 5 AM and getting Mr T off to NYC for a day of working, feeding the dogs and doing my scan, I totally mistook the day for Wednesday, rushed around and got myself into the car at 9 AM to see my 'regular' doc (just a checkin). When I got there (30 minutes away), I thought it was odd that the receptionist wasn't in, and all I heard was the calm music of the acupuncturist that works there as well !!!!! Duh, the doc was not in this morning...

    I salvaged the trip by stopping at a store I rarely go to; I got some clean chicken breasts to cook for girl-dog, then swung through the Dollar Store for house essentials. I've been putting off those errands. Then came home and totally crashed! I guess getting off of my eating pattern, and not taking my nutraceuticals ( one of which helps my adrenals) made a difference.

    But I got my scan in! Dill - I do it early in the morning, but after I've had a little to eat, and a 'bullet-proof' tea. It's the only way I can be sure to get the meditation in. I tried one day in the afternoon, but really struggled to stay awake. I'm going to keep at it: last night I watched a video with Deepak Chopra last where he talked about research they are doing at the Chopra Center. They have a control group of people meditating, and Harvard runs all the numbers of their blood each day... after 4 days of meditating, all the inflammation markers in the meditators' blood were remarkable changed. I guess he has a new book out: 'SuperGene' or something like that. All about the microbiome, and how what we eat controls how our genes are 'expressed'. So genes are not destiny!!! It really sounds fascinating!

    So, now if I can just remember what day it is, and stay awake beyond 11 AM, I'll be good to go. Sheesh.

    Hope all have a beautiful AF TUESDAY night. (Hey - it's 5:05, and the sun hasn't even set yet!)

    Just found out I am on kid watch so I'll be out by 7:30 tomorrow morning BUT it will just be for a short while. I have lunch plans with my friends & I won't let anyone mess them up for me

    Cyn, I read about Chopra's new study going on. Sometimes I wish I could actually be out there & get involved with some of their stuff.
    We definitely do not have to let our genetics take control of our destiny. Our everyday choices of what we do, eat, drink & not do are much more important. Christianne Northrup has been saying the same thing
    When you get a minute, look at your Facebook messages. I sent you a link for GF, DF 'Wheat Thins' - easy to make & good!!
    PS: sometimes I forget what day it is too, you are not alone.

    Peace to all tonight!

    Good morning...

    Cyn and Lav, how funny, when I woke up this morning, I had to consciously think, what day is today? I was hoping it was Friday.

    Busy with work, really focusing on eating healthy, made a new recipe last night and it was soooo good.

    Dill, I am reading an autobiography on Jennie Churchhill, Winston's mother. Interesting, but boy oh boy were those English aristocrats (she married one) selfish and not very good parents. Reminded me in some ways of Downton Abbey.

    Cyn hope you feel better today. Good on you for pushing though with the body scan and making lemonade out of the lemon of the wrong day schedule. I really believe that meditating changes your immune system for the better, over time. In many ways it is like an extended prayer practice. Sounds like the doggies are doing better.

    Pauly, it's Wednesday already. Yay.

    Have a good one.

    Morning all - Happy Hump Day! Wednesday, today is Wednesday...

    Lav, thinking of you driving to kid-sit, hope the commute is good. Have fun with your work friends.

    Star, isn't that fascinating about Jennie Churchill? There wwre dozens of wealthy american heiresses married off to English noblemen then - just to keep the estates going. It was very much like Downtown - though I think few of them were involved in their kids' lives at all! Boarding schools...

    Dill, did you have time with your friends yesterday? hope it was good.

    Pauly - hope today is a good work day for you.

    I'm off to the doc, as you know! Must get something done today, yesterday's goals got pretty messed up. It is what it is, I guess.

    Happy day all -

    Happy af Hump Day all!

    Cyn, after reading your post I googled a little bit about that research and found it fascinating. My googling also led me to a book called Autobiography of a Yogi, by Yogananda (1946) which I read excerpts from on the internet. Also very interesting to me. The Yogi was teaching this certain type of meditation called Kriya Yoga. He travelled the world teaching whoever wanted to learn and he is sometimes referred to as "the father of Yoga in the West". He said that meditation practice was a way to find God within. He was doing his teaching long before there were scientific methods to measure the effects of the practice but I am sure that finding inner peace thru meditation would have to lead to better physical health. After all my googling I am even more interested in meditation practice than I was before! Thanks to you and Star as well.

    Star, that book about Jennie Churchill sounds interesting. I am and greaat admirer of Winston Churchill. If I get time I might get that book because it would be interesting to understand more about his upbringing and his character formation.

    Lav, did you have a good meet up with your friends? I have another one scheduled for next week, Thursday. I'm really looking forward to that one. I am sad tho because one of the friends I am meeting has told me she is moving! She and her husband want to live closer to their children. I am happy for her to do it, but it will be a loss to me .

    Hiya Pauly!

    Let's all have a good af Wednesday!

    Good morning friends, happy Hump day!

    My child watching lasted all of one hour this morning. It was just at my son's house, a quick 8 mile trip. Got the oldest on the school bus & told my DIL that she was going to have to cancel her day. The younger guy is sick, was up throwing up during the night & all that.
    Sounds mean but I wasn't going to cancel my lunch & Curves plans to sit with a sick kid. That's her job, not mine.

    I am catching up with some stuff at home then will be heading out for a few hours.
    Hello to Dill, Star, Cyn & Pauly.

    Have a great AF day everyone!

    It's hard on working parents having to deal with sick kids & all BUT I never asked someone to watch mine when they were sick
    I try to help as much as I can but sometimes I just need to firm up my boundaries - know what I mean?
    Pauly, watch your food intake to help stabilize your moods. I can get kind of whacky if my blood sugar drops too low too. Be nice to yourself & I swear by frequent small feedings instead of three large meals per day

    I'm out early in the morning to go to my granddaughter's. I will check in from there.

    Peace to all tonight!
