I started work at Health First Rehabilitation. It's a combination chiro, massage therapist, and physical therapy center. It's a busy place, with a very friendly staff. More importantly, it's expanding. I can't help but think that there is potential for a Clinical Nutritionist or Homeopathic Physician to be added someday to the team! (Many years into the future ......) More importantly, I work 8:30 to 12:30 with optional Saturday hours. I can learn and work while the boys are in school and be available for them at the bus stop. Yesterday, I learned to develop X-rays. Today I attempted to learn the computer software entitled "Medinotes" and "Eclipse."
Mechanical traction, electrical stimulation, and other medical terminology are slowly starting to float into my brain. It's a good spot for me to be in right now. I am not certain what to do about next summer and I am worried about the boys. But one step at a time....
My children and I trekked through the wildflowers and towering field grasses yesterday. It was an absolute riot. There were so excited to explore the trails with me, and even more excited to make some of their own. I carried my five year old on my back, and my nine year old trudged forward fearlessly! It was a good work out for everyone.
Today we drove up to the local state park and discovered the pine forest. Many, many trees have been knocked down due to the recent storms. There were plenty of broken branches appropriate for 'teepee' building. Again, it was just a beautiful day.
The kids will visit Dad tomorrow. I am a little weary, still anemic, and grateful for the reprieve. I had to miss my appointment with Dr. Julia, the local ND. Foolish of me I think. I want those test results! I know certain supplements are needed, but I wanted to chat with her first before spending any more money. I am certain she will also recommend a 'cleansing'. My system has been off for so long due to stress......
My little one loves his pinto beans! I simply blended them with olive oil, diced onions and a pinch of salt! I served them with sliced apples or plain rice cakes. I am glad to see him expand once again! As far as veggies, I have comprised and started buying those premade juices. A juicer is still on my want list, and I think the next time I see one in the second hand store, I will pick one up. Thank you for the comments about picking one up on e-bay. It seems there are too many reasons to spend money, of course. I did treat myself, a bit. My birthday is coming up and my feet were hurting from 'overuse.' I bought myself a mountain bike. Here's the good news: it's a great way to get exercise while taking a break from running. It's also a great way for my nine year old and I to bond. He loves riding on bumpy trails!
