Hope your Monday has started out without a problem. When I was going to school or working, I hated Mondays...and Fridays. Those two days in the hospital were murder, for some reason. I always a lot of new admissions and plenty galore of paperwork to weed through! Now that I'm kind of "retired" so to speak and not working, I don't mind Mondays anymore. Just another day.
So have you been doing the relaxation tips I told you about in my last two posts? Thinking pleasant thoughts of things that happened in the past and deep breathing? If you don't mind, we'll reinforce those techniques for today's post and take another journey into the past. :0)
I've received some comments about people really liking the pictures. Yay! I love my pictures and I love sharing them. So here we go...
In 2001, my mom and dad and Frankie and I went to the Grand Canyon. We figured we lived in this state for a number of years now and still hadn't seen the magnificent canyons (Except for Frankie...he hiked down to the bottom when he was in Boy Scouts). My grandpa, who was VERY sarcastic, always said,r "It's the 7th Wonder of the World....you wonder why the hell it's there!" Very sentimental man, my grandpa!! He had a rough exterior, but he was all heart inside.
Anyway, here some pics of our trip:
HE would get the bus driver in on the picture taking festivities too!! I forget the driver's name, but he was very good and we tipped him well. He actually lives up at the canyon with his wife and kids.
I remember going home hot and broke. The temps in Yuma were soaring in the triple digits and I was missing the coolness of Flagstaff and the Grand Canyon. I wanted to turn the car around and go back to the canyon again!!
See how easy it is to get your mind off your pain or your problems by thinking back to family trips you had fun on or just good memories that make you laugh. Try it.....you just be surprised to see that it works!!
PS....I had to make an emergency doctor appointment today. My right leg is just absolutely KILLING me with thigh pain and that horrible fire on the top of my foot. Damn neuropathy! I hate it! So wish me luck. I don't know what more she can do, but it's worth a try. :0)
