Yes, I'm back. It's been so long since I've wrote anything here. I've been dealing with some family stuff and it's starting to be something good...I hope...I think...I'm afraid to say...
Like Cher and Nicholas Cage on the movie, Moonlight, it is now time to snap out of it. Juggling so many balls is going to have to be a way of life and I've got to deal with it. It doesn't do me any good to try to eat my feelings. I've put on 33 pounds since my last family crisis. That doesn't do anyone any good, least of all me. So it's time to be true to myself and get back to the things I love. I'm beginning to use the My Fitness Pal app to track my food and exercise. I'll be getting back to volunteering for my 2 favorite causes, WFPK and the public radio partnership and my church. Hmmmm you say? Well, I'm of the thought that what's wrong with a little conversation? Can't we agree to disagree? I don't agree with everything my church is about and I don't agree with everything my favorite radio station is about. When I don't like something, I can turn it off, or look ahead to the sermon series and decide if that's something I want to hear or not.
Besides volunteering, my husband, Bob and I are SLOWLY trying to downsize. We've done the upstairs of the house and now we are almost done with the first floor of our house. We have painted every room and packed up all the house, except for our kitchen and master bedroom. We just don't need this big of a house and this big of a yard, 1 1/4 acre. I'm not a great house cleaner, but, we still have to mow and that kills half a day or more on the weekend.
My training for triathlons is going to have to take a back seat. As much as I love, love, love, swimming, biking and running, it's got to wait. I still see women older than me out there, so I can hold.
Well, there you have it. I'll be uploading the progress of all these things. The family business is still fluid and working itself out. Children are the joy and loves our lives and so you do what you have to do.
