MOST anxiety occurs on a subconscious level.  JUST because you don't feel consciously anxious or had a day or two of calm doesn't mean your mind & body are relaxed.  It can take months of reduced anxiety before a body goes back to a more non-reactive state

Well today actually IS my birthday, so I'm going to do the least amount of work I can get by with. That doesn't mean I'm sitting around on my rump though; I started some ribs in the slow cooker and will finish them on the grill this afternoon. A few friends are coming over for a cookout; we'll have the aforementioned ribs, some brats and franks, and some burgers, plus whatever people end up bringing. Lots of cold beverages and so forth. I probably should mow the lawn, but I'm not terribly motivated to do it on my birthday. I think I'll leave it be, and if anyone complains I'll show them where the mower is and tell them to have at it!

 :( I should have taken my own advice and not mowed the lawn. I twisted my ankle mowing the lawn and felt it pop. Now it's really swollen and very stiff and hurts to put pressure on it. I'll be spending most of the day sitting down apparently, so at least it's a good excuse not to do any more work today...

I did a 90 minute yoga workout (P90x)  I've done the workout before, but never the full one (usually I do about 45 minutes). my body is so tired but I'm pretty pleased that I managed it.  Tomorrow I have my kickboxing class and piano lesson, after that will be driving down to my inlaws cabin on the lake and we'll swim, see fireworks, visit family so that will be nice :)

ahhh what a great weekend.  All the extra family left today after lunch.

so we had hubs brother, his mom and sister and bro in law for the fourth.  I had myself surrounded by shrinks for the weekend   :P Love the stories they can tell  :winking0008:.   the fourth we had fantastic strip steaks.  I made margaritas.  Hubs took everyone to the fireworks.  I stayed home this year.  Fireworks and late nights are hard on our eldest, who is disabled.  that was fine.  I just read my book.    Hubs sis and her fam left afterward.  Saturday we bbq'd again.  Today is our anniversary   :yes:  ;D  We went to church then off to the "Roycroft Inn" for brunch.  My bro in law is a history buff and he'd read about this Inn and wanted to see it.  We were only happy to oblige.  It is a nice place.   We came home and I plopped on the couch and fell asleep watching a history show.

All in all a great weekend.  Now I just need to digest  all of this food.

HEY, did you all KNOWWWWW  that riding a horse for the first time since 1999  can make muscles in your body that you didn't know you had  HURT?

Yesterday I took 5 of my kids to a riding stable.  We rode through the woods for an hour.  then we got to check out all of the other animals.  it was great fun

Well, tomorrow my husband, son and I are going to the shore for the day and on Sunday we are going to my MIL's house for dinner to celebrate my husbands birthday.  But since we do not have to be there until 5, I will also clean the house and my car.  Cleaning the house and the car are actually things I like to do.....
