Not Good At This!

Sunday, June 04, 2017

I am not good at writing blogs. Today's Spark Coach message was to blog 3 things that were accomplishments.....so it is easier as I have been given a topic.

1) Just finished babysitting all week-end for 2 of our grandchildren (have 7 total)!...not as easy as it used to be as we are getting older. Doing things when you are 70 years old take more time and are harder! But love the kids and wanted to help son and daughter-in-law out as they were running in an 82 mile tag team race from St. Louis to Herman, MO. Glad they could do it and finish and glad that we could help out by keeping kids from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon. emoticon

2) Glad we have a beautiful in-ground salt water pool that the kids love to swim and play in. Helped keep them entertained. They are 6 and 10 years old and both can swim - the 6 year old is still learning, she is doing well, and was going off diving board! The 10 year old was like a fish - even though the water is just 84 degrees... G'Ma Sandy (that would be me) prefers the water to be closer to 90 degrees! emoticon

3) Took the grandkids to Saturday night Mass with us and they were so well-behaved! Grateful that we could attend church and have the opportunity to thank the Lord for all of our blessings. Then took them out to eat and they were super at the restaurant! Came home and played "Risk" - whew! What a difficult game, but grandson (10) was enthtalled with the game.....too long and intense for G'Pa and I, but we endured as he was thrilled to beat us! Then the kids went upstairs to watch a movie in bed (with popcorn, of course) and I got ready to go to bed at 10:30 - but had to go downstairs and walk 20 minutes to get my 10K steps in! Haha! You would think I would have more steps with all we did with kids, but oh well, got 'er done! emoticon

So there you go .....busy week-end....glad when parents finally got here to pick up the grandkids....worked in yard, cleaned up and hubby and I went out for dinner! Nice way to end the week-end. Except I don't have my steps in, so I guess I'm headed to the basement to walk on the treadmill again tonight....raining, so I can't walk outside, but all is good because now I don't have to water plants tonight! emoticon

    Wow! very impressed you did not let anything keep you from achieving your 10,000 steps. Just received 95 days in a row of achieving 10,000 steps. So you are giving me the motivation to not let any distraction keep me from getting my steps.Thank you!
