well life has its own way of finding even keel. It has found its new routine & its busier than before, no more I miss going out to work, I am blessed to have mindset flow with life's currents & after stroke learnt it is my choice to flow in life's current with happy face or kicking & screaming. Well I did enough of kicking & screaming first few years & hated my life back then, so now after decision to be happy with wherever that current takes me, I am enjoying my ride. Though I do get rapids in my ride from time to time having teenager at home & being stroke survivor brings its own hardships. on bad days it's hubby's faults cause kido is just like his dad & on good days he is just like his mom in smartness lol. Though he also has great sense of humor & very naughty. now that he is taller than me, he hides books I m reading on ceiling fans & ofcourse wins everytime snatching his new toys from me. he brings lot of joy in our life. we recently celebrated his 14th Birthday. he is big kid now & don't want to celebrate though ofcourse I want to so I invited my friends & family.
