We had lots of cold rain last weekend, and when the clouds cleared the mountains were full of snow.

Girls! How are you doing? Hope someone named Lee has taken some time for herself to rest.

stary star, satine, sue! hope all is good.

I certainly could be doing better, BUT I could also be doing far worse, so no big reasons to complain or feel pessimistic.

School is fine. Normal, but need to start studying for real

getting ready for the wedding?

This was a bad day overall. I did nothing at all, besides eating junk food, feeling bad because of the hot hot weather (I am craving winter) and watch some tv. Baaaad day, but tomorrow will be much better. Need to get active.

how about your day?

Re: The new (and improved) Djokoforum chat thread! Part 2

A bit of sleep last night but overall, still tired as only 4 hours the night before Real torture from my therapist yesterday as he focus on the part of the shoulder that was not doing as well as other parts. Basically, I can move my arm and shoulder except in a certain way without too much pain. But the guy really has magical fingers/hands. My shoulder and neck muscles were very tight after all the exercises I did before he worked on my shoulder. He applied pressure at certain points and the muscles relaxed.

Anyway, I am still very stressed. Another reason for the very tightened muscles and tireness. Keep telling myself to relax but making very slow progress Hubby also has similar problem with his right shoulder although not as severe as me. I taught him the exercises but of course, he did not do them

Of course not!

He’ll do them if it gets bad enough. Now If I have any inkling at all that my shoulder is tightening up, I do the exercises until it feels good again — usually just a couple of days.

In what way do you have to move your arm to make it hurt? Mine hurt in all directions until I finished the exercises. But my therapist never caused me pain with the shoulder. She sure tortured my fingers, poor babies, but today I have nearly full movement in all my fingers and I thank her for that.

Sorry!

Sometimes you just have to ride it out and let it get better. I’ve never felt really depressed for no reason for more than one day at a time, but from that I can see how depressed people must suffer.

oh my god, I can't believe how snob and insensitive some people can be. Some people just have no idea what's like barely having enough money to eat... really makes me sad to understand that they really believe in what they post in GM...

What???

Poverty — it’s not for the faint of heart.

Here’s a heartwarming story from Story Corps. It’s a method for people to record their real life stories and have them archived. This one was a son with his mother. He asks her questions about how she managed to raise him and his four brothers.

She had no education and I don’t know if the father had died or left her, but she was on her own with these 5 boys. She worked as a janitor and then nurses aide in a hospital. She did all the dirtiest jobs. She bought left over chicken parts like the wings and the necks and boiled them with rice to feed her boys. She bought them clothing a thrift stores. She worked all the overtimes she could and put that money aside for Christmas and took time off at Christmas. Her son said they never felt poor. But they had to go to school and they had to do good. They saw her working so very hard for them. And all the boys went to college and the one talking was a doctor. You could hear the love between them.

That's a lovely story...

It's so sad how insensitive and really delusional some people can be. These guys have no idea what's struggling to feed a kid! Neither do I, but I am not blind...

The worst position was with my elbow bend at L shape and turn my forearm backward, like losing in an arm wrestling contest or trying to hook up the bra at the back

Re: The new (and improved) Djokoforum chat thread! Part 2

Lee, driving down to Bryce, I listened to a book that I think you will like a lot. I’m not even half done yet.

Anyway, it’s called Factory Girls, and it’s about the immigrants from the rural areas to the factory towns in south China. These girls are so brave and resourceful. I feel like I’d be a total failure in China. It’s really good. The author is of Chinese heritage, but born in the U.S. She got an apartment and lived in the area as she kept trying to learn about the girls working in the factories. Most would not talk to her.

She said she felt like she was running from China her whole life, but China kept finding her. She studied American History in college. She moved to Prague. In Prague, she was stopped by a Chinese couple who asked her for directions in Mandrian. She almost didn’t answer them because they were seeing her as Chinese. But, she did tell them the directions. But the incident got her thinking about herself.

Chinese women are amazingly resilient. May be because they are suppressed and treated as second class citizen for such a long time.

And about China calling: I think most of us has the need to look for our roots.

The whole family, including Brutus, went out yesterday. We ate t the courtyard in a nearby tourist site and Brutus attracted lots of Ooohs and Aaahs and part of the tourisits picture collection Hubby ačted like a proud daddy enjoying the spotlight Then we went to Bryce Thompson Arboretum and bought pots of succulent plants But it was really hot yesterday as mother nature forgets it is supposed to be Fall now.
