10 For Friday

  1. Got a money order. My first! Very special, right?
  2. Wandered around Tai Pan. I put a whole display together of a plate holder with 4 different plates. I wandered the whole crockery department looking for the perfect plate combination. Just as I got it perfect, I decided I didn't really want it after all and left it on the counter. Maybe it will inspire someone else.
  3. Bought flannel for a blanket I'm making for a former Ragnar team member. She is expecting a girl in June and I can't wait to sew it up!
  4. Finished another blanket for my next door neighbor who adopted in November. I've had the flannel since then as well. Sometimes I just can't get motivated.
  5. Meditated. Oprah Winfrey is doing a 21 day meditation program and I thought I would check it out. It was very peaceful. So glad I did it. (I know nothing about meditation, FYI. But it's never too late to try something new. Also, I think what I liked most about it is that I did it in my sunny front room with the blinds turned so I was in the gorgeous sunshine.)
  6. Ran to the junior high. Making strides with my back. I think having a better attitude is helping.
  7. Finished a book.
  8. Wished that my foam roller would come. I ordered one on Tuesday from Amazon. Then my bestie Rebecca gave me a pilates/foam rolling class over FaceTime yesterday. I can't wait for it to come and to start using it. Her class was excellent - my back felt really open in ways I didn't know it could. Win!
  9. Hung upside down on my other neighbor's inversion table. I think if I do that after every run I will be able to create space in my back to ease some of the pain. I'm leaving no stone unturned in this process.
  10. Welcomed three mini-daffodils and 5 purple crocus to the world. I love spring!

What did you do today? Is it sunny where you are?

Always glad when you blog! Glad you are soldiering on.

When I was growing up, my mom ONLY used money orders, so I grew up paying for everything with money orders. For the first few years of my marriage, my bill paying life was so complicated.

Hooray for online bill pay!

(And congrats on your first money order).

Your neighbor was so nice to let you use their inversion table. And it's true that hanging upside down helps stretch your leg muscles and lower back, therefore preventing spasms. It's a nice way of relieving back pains as well as a good cool down exercise after running.
