Hello. I am now into my "week 2" of life with no offspring at home. Last week I focused on housecleaning. I started by cleaning some windows, and then moved on to the bathroom, vacuuming, and laundry. I got the oven cleaned and one of the majorly cluttered kitchen cabinets. There is, of course, lots more of everything to do!

My focus this week is on self care. I got back on my yoga mat and am following Ekhart Yoga's September Program. I am working to heal several very minor, but irritating health issues. I am taking it easy this week, and allowing myself time to absorb and reflect. I am taking time to have lunch with a friend one day and my mom and son another. I am thinking about using kind and comforting words when I talk to myself, and also remembering to quiet my mind, so I can hear my intuition.

It would be too easy to fall into a very depressed state right now, as I am quickly learning that some of the things I had long hoped to be doing in my life right now are not going to be possible after all.However, I am grateful everyday that my children are all doing well, and that keeps my spirits up.
Peace and Love,
