The last week of August is typically one of the busiest of the year for me at work and this week is no exception. During this week last year I ended up in the hospital with chest pain; I am doing much better at managing my stress this year!
In addition to dealing with all that is happening at the office, I have been preparing for the first meeting of the Story Circle group I am starting. I’m looking forward to meeting a group of women on Saturday who are as interested in lifewriting as I am. (It’s that whole “tribe” thing that I’ve been thinking about lately, and that I am sure will become a blog post one of these days.)
Gerry and I got our new Droid X phones this week. I’ve felt like a child waiting for Christmas morning these past few weeks! We have the phones now and I’ve put my geek hat on and spent some time checking out all of the cool features. I am expecting that the Droid will help me simplify my life and stay better organized. In fact, just this afternoon I was able to respond to some email and check in on my Facebook friends while waiting for my doctor’s appointment. (Speaking of my doctor’s appointment: Soy + Yoga = Lower Cholesterol.)
By the way, if you are not a regular visitor to my Arms of Adoption blog, I invite you to drop by and read about my brother, Frank who lost his battle with cancer this week. He was a man of integrity.
