Where has the time and my waistline gone?

Friday, October 21, 2011

My goodness! It has been 2 months since I blogged and many more months than that since I worried about what I was eating and what I was doing for physical exercise. Time to get back on focus toward my life goals and a healthier me.

We are back at our winter home. I have to say I have come to the realization I am not happy here. It is probably because over the years of running my business and being so busy with that, I have let all my personal friendships and community involvement drop. I think it is time to start doing more social interaction and get out of this house way more.

First step to doing that is get back to going to the pool to work out! I love the folks who go. I really liked the results I was seeing when I did go. And it won't be long until the grips of winter prevent outside walking.

I also really want to spend at least a month in Denver with my DD and her baby when she comes in February. I have been looking on line for a place to rent for short term that isn't going to cost an arm and a leg. So far no luck! I can't believe that I can go to Lake Havasu,AZ and rent a place for $900 a month, but I can't find a place in Denver area for less than $2,000 per month. There has to be a solution! I refuse to give in. My ideal would be for us to be able to go stay a couple of months each winter to have time with DD and her family so that we can have a strong bond with our grandchild and our SIL. DH and I had discussed going south in the winter for a month or 2, but since we have found out we are having our first grandbaby, things have changed. My children were so lucky to have their grandparents an active part of their lives I want to be that kind of grandparent to our little ones. 1 to 2 weeks a year just isn't going to cut it, lol! Also, got to keep healthy to be around for those grandkids!

Well, there are my dreams! Time to get on them.

    When our first gd lives in Mo., we saw her once a month for at least the first year. We live in Mi. Either we went down there or my dd flew up here with her. Now that she is almost 14, when she is finished with school for the summer, we go down there for a week and then bring here home for usually at least a month. We have been doing that since she was 3 years old.
