Happy Meal

McDonald's is my favorite place in the world right now.....I can check my email, and write my blog! There are a lot of folks here doing the same....it is beginning to feel like home. HaHa!!!

It is cold and rainy and today. I am still scattered in my thoughts(and there are those who would swear that is nothing new) Now Rick and I are really starting to have withdrawals from our "world of friends"!

As I taught my classes yesterday and last night I realized how badly I had needed to teach.....it was so much comfort, to walk into the class room, get the mats out and begin to breathe. As the students walked in, they were all smiles, it felt so good to see Happy Faces! None of my students will ever realize how much I needed them yesterday, how much I needed the routine of breath work, of asanas and relaxation.....and the hugs they give to me at the end of class.

Clean up in our communities has started.....power is back on in many areas, phone service is still iffy. This too shall pass.

Rick is laughing because I have eaten more fast food in the past week than I have in my whole life probably....but I feel guilty sitting here and not buying something, I figure when life becomes more normal, it will be along time before I can visit Mc Donalds again! (sorry guys, I can feel my arteries clogging)

Until my next visit to Mickey D's,.....Happy Meal anyone?????


  1. Sweet! I'll take a Happy Meal at any time to share some thoughts with you :)

  2. Ooh. I would have one please:)
    Hoping your life returns to "normal" soon. It's nice when something we love to do keeps us grounded- makes us appreciate it even more!

  3. Well, your arteries may be temporarily clogged a bit, but it sounds like your heart isn't! :)

    Good for you! Blessings to you - Marsha

  4. Glad McDonald's is working for you! I rather like their fries and even a happy meal with my grandson now and then!
    It's neat that you can see happy faces there too! You need a place that can be just that...happy!!

  5. Glad things are getting cleaned up. :) And you have a place for your internet.

    You can always order a tea or water with a pack of apple slices - you don't have to have a burger and fries if you want to buy something.

    I was the same way when we lost our net and I went to Starbucks. I could've sat in the parking lot but I always went in and ordered a tea. Delicious! Although I haven't been back since, they did get my business for that month.

  6. Feel privileged, all our McDonald's offers is clogged arteries!

    So glad clean up has started and I'm sending up prayers for the entire state of Alabama. Roll Tide!

  7. You have to do what you have to do. I am just glad you have a way to stay in touch with us. Hang in there and know we are rooting for you and would help if it wasn't so far.
    Odie :)

  8. Hope things gradually get back to normal for you and, as Odie says, we're just pleased that you have found a way of keeping in touch with us all. Still praying for all of those affected by the dreadful tornados.
