Thanks friends

Thanks for checking in on me.

Yes my fragile little happiness is growing very slowly but surely. It has become a little sturdier, and while it gets knocked over relatively easily, it bounces back in a fairly short time.

When people ask me how I am I have stopped saying "OK I guess" or "not tooooooo bad" and have started to say "pretty good actually". Which is pretty good actually - don't you think.

I don't know what has happened. It's a miracle to say the least. And I put at least some of it down to the choir I have been singing in, and the circus classes. Did I mention how much I love circus?

My other sister (not the one who just had a child) but the one in the middle - she is also pregnant, and about to get married. Which is great for her cause she is 35. It was an Oooops thing. Although I'm yet to figure how two 35 yr olds ooopsed their way into that. I think it involved serious denial, Christians and all.

I won't go into all that commotion - the point is - this is something that could really tip me over. I'm organising her hens party today (a picnic tomorrow), and the wedding is next week. And, listen up peoples, I'M OK.

So there you have it.

Thanks again to those who have been checking in.

It means alot.

Do you think it is OK to do circus classes while doing a cycle? It's all about your core muscles getting serious workout. Feet tangled in the tissue - hanging upside down and attemping sit ups - that kind of stuff. Like uber pilates.

You are so cool in so many ways, B.

I think you rock because of the circus stuff. And the way you're dealing with your sister's, uh, condition.

Also, thanks for your kind comment and compassion today. You made me smile, my friend.

In my humble opinion, it does no good to try to be "perfect" during a cycle. Better to be happy.

So . . .you are cycling soon? Good to hear. Everything will be crossed for you.

I'm glad you are finding some peace. It's a hard place. I'll be thinking of you and hoping for even more positive updates! (I accidentally deleted this just now! Eek!)

So very delighted for you. I feel the same way...what a great departure!

Good to know you're in a good place. The circus classes are way cool!!! I've never heard of such a thing, and I'm jealous. I know it's good to exercise for tension and such...but no idea on climbing rope while doing a cycle. Still, that's so very neat.

Yay for the circus! I agree with Kami - better to be happy and living as you would than restricting yourself. If you can physically do it while cycling, then go for it!
