Just back from acupuncture and shopping. Both activities were productive. Acupuncture made it so I finally warmed up and I'm not feeling freezing cold and shopping, well I got lucky with a sale plus two dresses and a pair of shoes.

Along the TCM line I'm making progress. My tongue coating is thinning some, I'm feeling more emotionally even, and my digestion has been improving some. My lung qi is weak, still fighting that virus from two weeks ago. All of my spleen points in my legs are sore, I had needles up both my legs from my feet to my knees. She asked me if my feet were cold and I said yes, basically since I came back from Fiji. She told me to do nightly foot soaking, then use that time to meditate or do qi gong breathing. That I think I can manage, heck while I'm at it I might as well do the castor oil pack ;P

I'm actually not a big shopper but this time of year I tend to notice the gaps in my wardrobe and I am willing to do what it takes to help fix that problem.

Work is going well, I usually only complain about it, and not much here, but over all its doing well. I'm feeling knowledgable, experienced and useful (mostly).

I'm glad to hear the TCM thing is making differences for you. That is good to know.

I was looking through some of your previous posts, and this one caught my eye again:

I've been thinking that this is something we may try. The entire time we've been ttc, we've only gotten goods on FF, but never a high. We've never had sex that day before O, the day of O and the day after O, so if I trigger on Monday, I think we are going to have sex everday next week. We'll just have to see how it goes. Check my blog for updates. In a little over 2 weeks, we'll know if it works or not. :o)

Glad to hear things are evening out for you, and that you have been feeling a little more warm. I'll have to try the foot soak--cold feet at night are a constant issue for me, although it has been a bit better since the warm weather has arrived here. And perhaps it would acutally make me make time for meditation.

Glad you're feeling more positive about work.

Oh, and I wanted to thank you for your post about what I've been feeling. I need to look into your suggestions a bit more--they really made sense. I have noticed that my lower back has been really achy lately, and that I've been having all kinds of muscle spasms and sharp pains on the sides of my back. Question--isn't it pretty typical to use different herbal formulas for different times in your cycle?
