Do you remember this cross-stitch I was working on last spring? Well, I had cleaned up the family room for company and put this away, and then promptly forgot to finish it! I found it the other day and just in time for fall. I always think of stitching or knitting in the cooler months (because in the hotter months I'm always like an immovable mass of hotness that can't be bothered with little things like this!). Anyways... I have to remind you that autumn is my favorite season so I'm very happy right now! I'm not happy about the kids starting school on Tuesday because I miss them a lot but I do love hearing about all the things they are learning and I know they miss seeing their friends every day. And I also tend to be a little better at scheduling my own time (in between the 7:30 am to 2:30 pm time slot!).
I got that book Appearance and Circumstance by Grant Bentley yesterday in the mail. I quickly scanned through it and when I got to the description of a person who is an "orange", I realized that it was me. I still need to compare all the features but some of the listed diseases I have already had and the way I approach things in life. And when I looked it up again on his website, I saw that "orange" is the warrior. Hmmm. So maybe all these postings I write about health and sometimes politics is my need to "defend and protect". Sounds more like law than medicine but I feel like homeopathy is more helpful. But it could explain how I let myself get dragged into too many political discussions and I get very discouraged when I can't get my point across. On a more positive note, I am very loyal. And so I guess I just may be orange. And the remedy that Joette prescribed for me (I'm a patient of Joette Calabrese which is a real honor!), is under the column of "orange" remedies.... that is encouraging!
So, I'm ready to settle into autumn crafts, and thinking about the holidays coming. I'm also going to try to reign back some of my passion about helping everybody be healthy! I have been called a "momma bear" before, because I do tend to mother everyone. I'll just focus on mothering these two cubs at home since I only have four more years before they take off (which just might be to The Ohio State University, as they are both talking about it pretty seriously right now!). Have a great weekend (and GO BUCKS!)
