Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

Five For Friday 11/4/11

Written by Katie. Posted in Five For Friday

What a week!  This has been a hard week for me because of many school obligations, but I made it through.

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 2 Days of home rehab.  Probably more like 1.5 days.  Yup, that’s it.  This week was a big fail when it comes to therapy.  I have a lot of making up to do.  Trying not to beat myself up.
  • Rough GI week.

2.  Monday was Halloween, so the week began with a bang.  At school, we partied by decorating cookies, playing a pumpkin walk game, and making bats.  Then we paraded through the school and finished the day by eating many treats.  Brad and I passed out candy Monday night.

I wear my stripes proud.

Look who stopped by! My Katy girl...I mean butterfly.

3.  Zondra and I had parent-teacher conferences on Tuesday and Thursday night.  I love conferences because I actually get to sit down and REALLY talk to the families of my kids.  But I’m not gonna lie.  By Thursday night, I was in tears and struggling when I got home.  I keep telling myself I must focus on how far I have come, and last year I would not have been able to do any conferences.  It is such a process.

10 more conferences to go.

4.  This came in the mail for me from my Aunt Laurie:

How did she know I needed a pick-me-up this week?

Thank you, Aunt Laurie!  It made me smile, and is so true!  You know me oh, so well.

 

5.  I like this quote so much, I’m making it #5…

“If you try to do too much, you will not achieve anything.” ~ Confucius

These words are so relevant to my life~They speak the truth in so many ways.  Confucius must have been one smart dude.  Maybe he had POTS? 😉
