Funny Thing About Remission

You're family actually expects you to DO things. ::laughing::

I'm game.
I did tell them to be careful what they wished for because we will be returning to JMU on Friday to pick up Squirrel for Spring Break and I want to do this:
UREC Rock Climbing Wall
I did have to promise to do my yoga everyday and go to the gym this week [strength training, y'know], but. . .what?! stop shaking your head. . .I think I can get at least half way up.
Well. . . if my fear of heights doesn't keep me earthbound.  They were nice enough to remind me that I am very much afraid of exposed heights.
Thanks family ::mwah:: Love you too.
I am pretty sure you can all tell that it has been a wonderful few weeks here in the pond.  It started off tentatively with our good news back then [can't believe I have felt this good for almost two weeks!], but we are breathing easier now and refusing to think that it all won't continue. We've been knocked back a bunch in the last few years, and I don't know how to describe it, but this time just feels better, like it is going to be okay.  And if it isn't an ongoing thing, well. . . we'll just deal with that when it comes too, won't we?  Just like we always do.  Still, there is no sense in waiting around for the other shoe to drop if it might not be dangling to begin with, right? I refuse to think it might happen. Besides I am having too good a time feeling goooood.
There is a certain sense of peace upon the water here for me and my family and it just feels nice. 
I hope your week has started off in a spectacular fashion and continues to get better and brighter as it progresses. I would write my usual here, but let's not tempt faith with an actual flipside not with the rock wall in my future. ::smiling:: We'll see ya' tomorrow with an Oscar Dress Red Carpet ReCap Skippyfamily style - how'bout that?
Hugs and love, Skippy

Awesome! I want to see lots of pictures of the rock climbing extravaganza! That is on my bucket list.

Jean said...

I am so glad you are feeling so well. You sound joyous.

That top photo is something I will never duplicate! I would love to try rock climbing but stairs are more my speed hahahahaha. Maybe if I lose some weight...

(((Huge hugs)))

Thing about rock climbing is that it's actually in the fingers, hands and arms. :)

Enjoy the climb!

I have always known instinctively that I should stay away from climbing. Hiking up mountains is something else, but a straight-up wall? You have such a positive attitude I have no doubt you can do anything you decide to!

Listen to you, all peppy and gonna climb some big rock go! Glad to hear you're feeling so good - it really does make me sooooo happy.

You look sexy in leather! And look at Pooldad. He just adores you. Happy-happy, joy-joy! XO

Silly woman. Rocks aren't meant to be climbed. They are to be mined, polished, set in gold or silver and worn on your fingers, dangling from ear lobes, sparkling around wrists or on a chain around your neck. There are other body parts that can wear them but that usually involves piercing.

I'm seriously glad your body feels so much better. Now if only your head would catch up. (Said while smiling, running and ducking for cover!)

The trick to rock climbing is to remember to use your legs more than your arms. Push up with the legs so your arms don't get as tired. I speak from experience.

Hi Skippy. Enough of these upside down photos - it's giving me a crick in the neck! Hee Hee!! I agree with Knitty about rocks! I don't think you should get carried away here. I don't want you slipping off that rock and breaking a bone or something!! We're all SO happy that you are SO happy. It must be an absolutely tremendous feeling for you after all that you have been through. Big hugs all round xx

Remission has got to be one of the most beautiful words in the English language.

If you climb that wall, you'd better get someone to take a picture for us! 12:34
