Just a "zebra" trying my best to live life to the fullest with EDS and POTS...and loving the ride.

Ummm, you know that one goal I have about figuring out how to balance blogging and life in general?  Well, that goal is proving to be very difficult for me right now…

1.  Medical Stuff:

  • 3 Days of Home Rehab.
  • I was supposed to see Larry Tuesday afternoon but he was sick so I am rescheduled for the beginning of February. 
  • I had my annual pulmonologist appointment on Monday.  My breathing tests checked out “close to normal.”  Any time a doctor uses the word “normal” in a sentence referring to me, I take it and run.

2.  I had a few different meetings this week for school and the foundation.  I worked with my webmaster, Sebastian, on Monday to begin building the foundation’s website.  The goal is to have it launched by the beginning of February.  That means that in just a few weeks, you will be able to buy your tickets to our invisible illness benefit which will be held on April 13 at the Kellogg Center in East Lansing, MI 🙂  On Tuesday, I attended a professional development workshop with many other schools in our district.

3.  We received our first sponsor on Tuesday!  Bill Collins Ford has made a very generous sponsorship commitment, and Allie and I are extremely touched and thankful.  Thank you Shane, Amanda, and Bill Collins Ford!

4.  We had pajama day in our classroom yesterday.  I laughed when a substitute in our building saw me in the hall and told me to get to class.  I guess when I wear zebra PJ’s I look like I am a middle schooler.  I told him, if he looked closer he would see my grays and wrinkles…

5. This is a good depiction of how I am feeling about life right now. I have been trying my best to coax myself out of my comfort zone each day, so that magic CAN happen.
