I had the initial consultation for the physical therapy for the carpal tunnel. I am fortunate because there is no nerve damage because it is rare. Maybe we caught it early enough to reverse the damage. I did have moist heat for 15 minutes on my wrists. I am going to get a new heating pad. I don't have one at this point. When I get paid I will buy one this weekend. Lydia's 16th birthday is coming up. I am planning to attend her luncheon for girls only. She is such a beauty and a gentle soul! Of all the 3 older Muglia girls, Lydia is the shyest one. Lydia is very quiet. Hannah is the somewhat quiet and Natalie is the chatterbox, or at least with me she is. I just really like those girls! I am blessed to have such good friends, family, students, and students' family. Sarah wants to see Wreck It Ralph. I told her that we were going to do something just the two of us. She has had to miss a couple of movies that the older girls and I have seen. The first time, she was ill and we when saw Les Miz, she was too young. As beautiful and wonderful the movie is, it is not for a 9 year old. I also would not take a 9 year to the live stage version either. Sarah and I will, of course, stop for ice cream after. It is a tradition you know. I love these traditions that the girls have created. Sometimes the girls and I go just for ice cream and talk. They are such sweet girls. Patrick is also a very sweet boy. He had his 1st piano lesson on Monday. Because the older 3 will not be taking lessons anymore, Patrick and Sarah will be able to have every other week lessons instead of once a month. I am pleased with this. A month is a long wait for the little ones. For the older 3, it was okay because their music is much harder. Patrick did really well. I have to pick up his new theory and note speller book before his next lesson. Sarah and I are reviewing some of the music she has already played. I do think that the Christmas Music with a new hand position really confused her. Sarah is doing very well and I think with some review she will feel a bit more confident.
My headache is about a medium today. I am not sure about trying anymore Alsuma because my stomach was so upset in the middle of the night. I am not sure if it was the medicine or just my IBS acting up. It is probably a 50/50 toss to say which one caused it. My legs are a bit stiffer tonight. I am not sure really why, they get that way sometimes. Next week I will be seeing the chiropractor. I hope to learn a new way to help my headaches and losing weight. I am working really hard on eating healthy. I am trying to eat a lot more vegetables and fruits. I sometimes have trouble with the fruit though. Vegetables are easier for me. I like salads so I get lots of vegetables in that. I need to add the fruits to my meals too. That is what I am working on these days.
Castle is on TNT tonight. I have recently discovered this show and I can't believe I never ever watched it. It is really good. Bill says he can get the DVDs for me to borrow from his work. I may have him do this along with the books that are available. That could be great. I have so many books on my nooks now that I cannot complain that I don't have enough to read, believe me, I do. The thing I like about the free books is that it introduces me to so many new authors. Well, time to spend some time with the nook before bed. I have to get some music tomorrow for a student. I will have to get some on Friday too but I need the one set of boxes for tomorrow and I don't have enough money to get them all so I will have to go again on Friday.
