Be free-floating, allowing the situation to surround you, and be in it. Take in the full surroundings, including the temperature of the water.
This may bring incredible clarity, presence and focus. This is what is means to be a jellyfish.

Music Monday! Two for Tuesday!! Like A Surgeon, Bob.

Last week was a rough week. 
You may have noticed 
I did not post the usual Music Monday! 
or the Walking on Wednesday series. 
Reasons for this include, but are not limited to: 
broken bones, surgery
crashed computer
dryer vent full of water
and allergies.

Trying to get back to normalcy
I bring you Two for Tuesday!! 
It seemed fitting to feature Weird Al
as the past week has been nothing short of 
weird, stressful
tiresome, and frustrating
I was in need of a good laugh
and so was hubby and rest of family. 
is always good for some
stress relief through laughter.

Start with Monday last week. 
Our daughter broke her finger,
looking similar to the x-ray here.
The urgent care facility 
barely wanted to wrap it
due to the severity of it. 
It was 30% displaced
and a hand specialist determined 
surgery was the only course 
to fix the broken pinkie finger properly

SURGERY for a 14 year old
Enough to stress a parent for sure. 
At least Weird Al was not the surgeon.




The surgery went very well.  
Afterwards, the medicine 
was still having an affect
(read making her loopy).
My daughter was entertaining 
the nurses, doctor, and me. 


It is a little disconcerting 
seeing your child completely loopy, 
but when she was amazed 
at the 'bubbles on the ceiling',  
I couldn't help but laugh

She even got a little upset that I wouldn't pop them. 
You try to explain that there are no bubbles, 
and you can't pop bubbles that don't really exist
to someone who is convinced they are real.

She wasn't as incoherent as Bob Dylan sometimes sounds, and Weird Al wonderfully translates a great Bob song here. 


Hopefully, this week will see some return to normalcy.
(whatever that means)
Daughter is getting used to functioning with one hand,
I am now smartly storing everything 
on to an external hard drive 
and functioning on a working computer.
Allergies maintained with medicine.
And back on track with some fun videos here.
I hope the rest of the week falls in place too.
A little humor always helps
to bring me back to feeling like myself.

How do you regroup 
after a crazy, terrible, stressful, frustrating week?
