The placebo effect is real, sugar pills can have as much of an effect as medication. But how? This video attempts to explain how.  According to the video, it’s energetic. The answers are within us. Of course a wonderful thing to believe and attempt to do! Please comment on any experience you’ve had with the placebo effect or positive thinking. Thank you 😍😍😍


Counting Down

We’re getting into the homestretch of packing and the details are legion.  But we’ll get through it.  I have all my luggage packed except for my daily stuff.  Bob will likely pack tonight, and we are going today to buy more athletic shorts for my youngest to pack.  The oldest of course is more complicated.

Talked with Tillie and that went well.  I already have an appointment when we get back to process the oldest leaving us so that is good.  We talked a lot about how I was currently feeling about her leaving and I am so far pretty upbeat about it.  I know she’s going to a premium job and will enjoy herself.   Everything else about it is up to her–she is grown and has to manage it herself.

The past few days have really left me feeling good.  I don’t feel as down or as hopeless as I was feeling and am looking forward to the trip.  Things are just kind of popping along.  I wish I could get motivated to clean up more around the house before we leave but I don’t think that’s going to happen with everything we still have left to arrange.

Hope everyone has a good rest of the week.
