This weekend was a struggle for me mentally and emotionally, but I got through it with the help of my many extremely supportive friends, plus a few distractions. I've found that as long as I can stay fairly busy, I've been able to keep my overwhelming floods of memories and feelings of grief from entirely overwhelming me. Thank you to everyone for all your kind words and thoughts.
On Friday Stew and I attended the graduation ceremony for the Seattle Fire Academy, to support Stew's good friend Tony. My goodness, do I love a man in uniform...
Saturday I got some much needed "me" time at my prenatal yoga class in the form of exercise and meditation. My instructor is also helping me to hopefully determine the cause of the constant pain in my hands and feet. We are exploring Reynaud's Syndrome, Carpal/Tarsal Tunnel, Compartment Syndrome, and possible kidney function problems. Massage, acupuncture and/or physical therapy are the some of the things I might try next to get some relief.
And I rounded out the weekend by helping to host a bridal shower for my dear friend Alissa. Assuming that Baby Boy cooperates, I will be a bridesmaid in her wedding this May and I could not be more excited for this wonderful couple.
How was your weekend?
