Acupuncture? Acupuncture.

So I finally got around to going to my old Chinese women massage/acupuncture place to heal my nagging ankle.

Acupuncture and acupressure and the massage hurt almost as bad as the injury itself, but dang did it work wonders.  These ladies know their stuff, which just goes along my theory that if you're old, a woman, Chinese and seem to be wise, you generally know your sh*t. Lol

Just came back from the annual AYCE Jays game with the boys from work. Seriously...i think we have to retire doing this. We're all getting up there in age and the spectacle of seeing Argana down 21 hot dogs is more scary now than fascinating. 

Regardless, fun times.  We even went to maple leafs square to catch the rest of the Raptors playoff game...which they lost. Whompwhomp

Staycation Results

So I had a week off. It was nice to decompress, I guess. In keeping with my plan not to put too much pressure on myself to do too much, I'm glad to say I accomplished the following this past week:

-watched the whole season 4 of The Walkng Dead
-removed the old cabinets from the previous kitchen Reno and mounted them in Sharon's garage and brought home some for my garage
-bought (a little) better fitting ice skates
-took down the old shelving from my garage
-won $10 at slots (!)
-generally...not much

I have another week off in a few weeks. We'll see how I feel by then and see if I feel the need to accomplish more

Oh It's The Pressure!

So I guess I caught myself putting too much, well, pressure on myself.  Trying to do so much, trying to force myself into this perceived place I should be at to be "happy".

I think I have to get back to just doing things that will help me focus more on me (as if I'm not selfish enough).  But really, I can't do this to myself...

Going for more salsa classes again.  I'm enjoying it; I just really have to practice

What happened to my plan of running a lot and getting fit?  Oops

Back To It?

Or more likely, just kind of...give up.  Meh.

Good times with my boy this weekend.  He's growing up into a typical boy, but one that I love so much.

Went to Ella's Bday party today (in swanky Forest Hill).  How do I know my child is one of the only children that doesn't watch TV/movies?  They were playing Frozen there and he was scared of the scenes that had suspense music in it.  He literally ran upstairs and told me to turn off the TV.  lol

Congrats to Arfeli for having baby Mika...our group of boys just keeps growing and growing.  I guess I won't be having my hair cut anytime

Looking At The Mirror

Hard not to feel like a loser but I know I'm not.

Just trying not to get too discouraged.

Stomach is churning recently.  Yargh

Looks like I committed to another round of dance class. Let's hope I actually learn something, especially since it's hard to, you know, distinguish my left side and my right side. *facepalm*

Still, I'm still having fun.  For now.

(Today was a bit tough on my ankle though.  Yargh...wolverine my a**)

Hard Not To Get Sucked Back In

As I keep trying to move forward, I realize the problem is occurring because I have a rear view mirror.

The objects, though, are at least moving further and further away.  It's just that...I can still see them.

Great couple days with my boy. As frustrating as it gets, it's nothing compared to the joy he brings me

*  *  *

Mushed up ankle is recovering nice and Wolverine like. I mean, sure it's all cankle-like due to the swelling and there's this nasty bruise, but considering I could barely walk yesterday and I even got X-rays it's coming along okay. 

Question is now how tentative am I going to be on it when I resume basketball and other activities?

Gotta do my taxes. Okay. Tomorrow. Let's see how far I get...
