Happy times

I figured out how to get a picture up and to get it in the right place!

Things are good. GOOD. I feel amazing and have had no boils for 6 days. It’s way too soon to say if the MRSA is gone, but my energy is back, full force, for the first time since October. Soo glad. And that’s a massive understatement.

I went running!!!!!!!! I started off with 2 mile walks for several days and honestly, I was shocked I had the energy. Each day it’s been better. Yesterday I walked 2 miles in the morning and in the afternoon I felt grand and went out exploring all the weird, semi-abandoned homes in the valley here:

This one is made of papercrete and is sort of a dugout home.

After I left that place, in my hiking boots (!) I just wanted to run, run, run. I ran super slowly for 1.25 miles at a run 30 seconds/walk 30 seconds pace. I felt beamingly happy.

Then I realized something that made me laugh out loud. 1 year ago I did my FIRST run, in those same hiking boots, through the snow in 5 degrees below zero weather. Very appropriate 🙂

This is the high desert and when it finally decided to rain, it pours. We got 2″ last week and will get 2″ more over the next 2 days. Then it returns to the 50’s and sun all week long. Oh yes, last week we had a blizzard too! We got about 4″ of snow and it dropped to 9 degrees. Crazy.

Now that we’re living out here, I’m confined to our new 19′ camper. I waded over to the garage, crossing over boards I had to lay down as to not sink into the mud. I’m able to “be outside here” and look at the lovely mountains while it rains.

I’m in here looking for the dozens of yoga DVD’s I have. I cannot find them and I’m going mad.

I’m going to start working again with Pamela Hernandez of Thrive Personal FitnessThrive Personal Fitness -for 3 months. She helped me so much last year.

I guess that’s all I have to say today. I’m crossing my fingers that things keep getting better and better.
