OMG has it been that long since I blogged?? Oh well...life gets in the way sometimes.
Mom has been in the emergency room twice in the last few weeks for shortness of breath. It is so much more pleasant in the ER when you come prepared with a book, a sweater and a snack for what is usually at least a 5 or 6 hour event. They did discover she has congestive heart failure and consequently added more meds to her already huge personal pharmacy. Now she will be cursing me further for limiting the sodium in her diet (I already monitor her sugar intake for diabetes). But the good news is, after conducting every test imaginable for her heart and lungs, she is in pretty good shape, considering all of her currently existing conditions including early stage Alzheimer's. But she's home and doing well so I am happy!
It was a great week of female bonding last week. Had a Women's Empowerment meeting, Professional Women's Toastmasters meeting and girls night with some of my girlfriends on Friday night at Universal Citywalk! I haven't been there in years - we had a great time at dinner and walking around. My girlfriend time is so very important to me!
This week is mostly about preparing for my seminar next weekend with Dr. Wayne Dyer in Maui! Although we will be in the seminar most of the day on Saturday and Sunday, I still need a pedicure, a wax, hair color touch-up and lash fill...just an excuse to do all this at once! Oh I cannot wait to walk around Lahaina and buy more pairs of my favorite Island Slipper shoes, have dinner at Roy's (even though we have them here in California now...it's just not the same as being at Roy's in Hawaii), and enjoy at least one lava flow by the pool. I wish I had more time to relax and enjoy the island but it's a long weekend specifically for this seminar and I am looking forward to basking in the love and wisdom of Dr. Dyer. I will blog about it when I get back next week.
This is going to be a great week! Please enjoy yourself and expect the best of everything!
