Wow am I tired. John and I finally finished moving everything out of his old apartment today. Yesterday the final boxes were moved, and the place was scrubbed down. Today what was not wanted was taken to the dump. Then John waited around for the carpet cleaner to come, and turned in the keys. Thank God it is totally finished, because I am so tired. Oh, there is one more thing to do, the storage locker needs to be cleaned out. But the rental office is going to give us a few more days to do that.
I couldn't help him finish up because I had three appointments today. First I had to be home for the maid. She is really frustrating me because she is banging my things around and has broken at least one mug. She slams my cabinets and my furniture. I asked the company last week to send me somebody else.
I also had a doctor's appointment. I am so excited. I got my test results back and I am not in the diabetic range! Yay! Last time I went I was in the diabetic range but got my score down this time! I still need to lose weight though. I told him it was hard for me to exercise because I am in pain with my fibromyalgia. John and I are going to join the YMCA though because they have a heated therapy pool. I should be able to stand that kind of exercise.
I also started a new therapy group today. I am going to be going there instead of my individual therapist from now on. It is a women's group for those with mood disorders (such as depression and bipolar). It lasts for an hour and a half and meets once a week. There were about eight of us. I have mixed feelings about it. In some ways I really liked it. The two fascilitators kept it interesting and asked us questions that allowed us to help each other on a practical level. I really like that kind of counseling. But the therapy kept going another way. Several of the women kept dominating the group. It was the same two or three women. They were telling their entire life story and kind of moaning about their lives. They were saying how hard they had it. Well good grief, who doesn't have it hard? I understand talking about problems, but I also think we should be brainstorming about how to solve things. And I don't think the same two people should be dominating all the time, unless you have a specific problem that week. These two dove right in without even seeing if anybody else had a need.
Chelsea just came by with a magnificent present. It is a frame with a bunch of wedding photos in it. It is a wedding present from her and my sister Valerie. Wow, I really love it. I will cherish it forever. Thanks Chelsea and Val.
Well, enough rambling for now.
