It has been too long sine I last wrote. Just to update you on my ankle: I just started to walk with out my boot two hours out of the day adding two more hours each day that follows. It feels so good and free to walk with out the boot and crutches. I can't wait to start doing standing yoga! This past week Jaime and I went with some friends to explore the Temecula wine country.
Some exciting news is Jaime and I will be Heading back to Nicaragua next week. We are very excited. It will be nice to have a break from classes, I have been going non-stop since the semester ended. Well I am going to try to be better about this blog, until next time.....

Thought of the day ... I still am surprised every day by every day things and people.

Where am I?

Wow, I realize how long it's been since I posted yet time seems to have flow by. ARC2010 was a success with some hiccups and the 1st Annual SALSA Brunch went smoothly beside the wind! School is done and I am now officially a second year. It feels weird that it came so quickly, next thing you know I will be saying how weird it is that I am graduating!!!! Si Dios Quiere. As I reflect on this year what sticks out the most is my husband and the new friends and allies I have made.

Jaime have been such a great support, I love him so much. I have made what I am sure to be life long friends and allies that I will have by my side in the journey that I hope to take being a advocate for those who need one. I feel honored and blessed to be where I am in my life right now. Thank you God.

Thought of the day: I have been on these crutches for way too long!!!

There was a few quotes that I shared with my group today at Practicum and one really stuck in my head and will be my thought for the day: Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. ~Dr. Seuss

Chi Sigma lota Initiation Ceremony

I feel so honorary! I attended the Chi sigma lota Initiation Ceremony Yesterday. It was fun and I got a cool lil pin to wear. On that note I wanted to express that I was getting tired of people still asking me what happened and offering help. There was a generous snack table and I refused for anyone to get me something ... twice ... then I felt silly when I decided to get up and get something for myself. Although, Hil did bring me a drink, bless her heart.

As I walked over to the snack table I hoped someone I knew was there to help me take back the bounty I was sure I would create in the 2 inch radius of a plate they had. Luckily Peggy was there with another girl. She of course offered to help me and I, with a renewed appreciation for my situation, agreed wholeheartedly. I actually needed help and was not to stubborn to accept it. This ankle thing has changed my perspective on being okay to ask for help, especially when you need it.

Thought of the day: Muse tickets on sale today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My swollen foot

I am currently sitting on the couch with ice on my ankle. My foot looks like a balloon. I should have known when I left this morning for practicum that it was going to be a long day and my ankle was going to pay for it. I started my day at 7:15 AM and got home at 5:15 PM, the longest day since the unfortunate break. The "positive" is I made it through and the pain isn't so bad. I was feeling sorry for myself a few weeks ago then a situation made me realize that I am very blessed just to ... well ... just to be.

Thought of the day: I have a loving cool husband, I am going to grad school to do something I love, I have made some fantastic friends, and I will walk someday. God is good.

Still Broken

Still Broken ... but, on the mend. It has been more than 6 weeks since I got my ankle broken. I have been sad, dependent, pissed, moody, hopeful, and thankful. I know it could have been worse and I am blessed that I have Jaime to take such good care of me. My friends have been indispensable and I love them all for that. I hope to start walking soon, I will find out in a little over a week.

My Mom spent last week with Jaime and I, then my Pop joined up for the weekend. I had a relaxing time and I miss them now. I got pampered, not that Jaime wasn't already doing that:)

School is going well, ARC2010 is creeping up really soon, can't wait till summer and Japan!! Thought of the day: I love my husband so much and it fascinates me that he can still surprise me in his ever evolving spirit. I am Blessed.
