This morning I couldn't stomach the idea of oatmeal so I made a carrot ginger smoothie but when I walked away, the blender vibrated, toppled and spilled half the contents. I almost whimpered over the CG smoothie contents in the sink. Bye bye organic carrot juice...
Feeling less crabby but on Monday definitely thought that I should report to meditation or yoga boot camp -- not one where they make you do power yoga but one where you are immersed in yoga.
When I mentioned the idea to Alison, she told me that she pretty much does yoga on a daily basis. Brilliant idea.
So, I'm going to attempt to do more yoga until I can find my way through this crabby phase...
Really enjoyed 6 Lifesaving Lesson from the ER: Courtesy of Travis Stork, MD.
During Dr. Stork's first stint as an attending physician, a dying child was brought into the ER.
"You may think I'm going to say that I took heroic action and saved his life. But to be frank, it was my years of training that saved his life. That and I took a deep breath. That deep breath turned any fear into focus, and I did what I was taught to do: I doctored."
Kind of funny that I just picked this magazine up again and saw the natural cold cures which are suggestions submitted by readers. One suggested 1/4 cup of chopped garlic in tomato juice. Garlic tea was one my grandmother's favorites but I just can't bring myself to go down that road.
