Pick-me-up

Good day/Bad day?: okay

It's hard getting through the days and having any useful thoughts. I'm amazed I was able to complete a handful of powerpoint slides today. But that's about it. It's becoming more profound fatigue, and fast. I get a little worried that there could be some depression sneaking into the mix, but then I don't fit the screening tools. I went to Zumba tonight to try and give me a little energy lift. It worked for the last couple of hours! But I can really only sneak it in once a week, and other exercise is hard to get in, too. Lots of logistics to deal with.

Here's me with hair returning! Note the eyebrows--now Ben can tell that I'm mad again...



Right now it's soft and fuzzy like a baby chick.








And here's Miss Olive being super cool:


We had a fun dance party on the way home from daycare today, with a mix of Bjork, the Beastie Boys, and Cab Calloway. She has a doll that she makes dance. She is also a big fan of putting dolls/stuffed animals to sleep (tucking them under a blanket) and then yelling her version of "Wake up!"

Did Olive get her hair cut???

Jenny, you are doing just fine--try not to be hard on yourself. The most intensive stuff is almost over. You'll make it through.

You may not like my two cents on this, but...

Just a reminder that energy will be replenished through deep REST.

It is so awesome that you are enjoying Zumba and all that comes with it, things we all need lots of: friends, community, dancing, music, getting to laugh at oneself, endorphins!!

But I would love to support you to also rest and be still more during this taxing on the body and mind time, not doing more. So if I can encourage rest.... let me know if I can be of service.

With Love, Love, Love!
