soon on our way...

Wednesday, December 03, 2014

Big push today donating things and having our car hauled away. I also returned library books and am a little stressed because there is one still outstanding. Possibly it got packed!?!

Our things ship out on Friday. we will have to wait almost two months for our boxes to arrive so this evening I will be having to do some savvy packing...making sure I bring the most important things with on the airplane. I suppose it is like packing for an extra long vacation. Fortunately, Christmas is coming so the kids will get toys, book and games then. Having January birthdays will help as well.

They are putting us up for two months in a furnished apartment while we settle in and find our own place. It looks really nice..almost resort like with pools, tennis court, play area for kids and such. We will arrive there on Sat night very late.

I have been able to stay on track with my plan for eating right with the exception of one night when we celebrated with friends. Basically it has been a kind of a cleansing diet, high in vegetables, healthy grains and some fish and lean protein. Lots and slots of water and a spirulina green algae drink every day. I have been very even tempered through this whole thing and sleeping very well at night. I think it is all of the healthy food. This week we have increased our exercise by walking when the bus is not available and of course all of the packing and such. Lost two pounds! Who would have thought I would manage to get healthy during this time!

Now I must go and get to my packing...Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
