I've been busy trying to re-learn bookkeeping and accounting so I can deal with last year's taxes (in Australia our financial year ends on the 30th of June). I've tried so many different types of software it's not funny.
As well, I'm preparing to leave the comfort of my home and venture out into the world. I'm heading to America for a bit. I'm going to meet my grandkids, visit my three kids (who all live in various states) and see all of my siblings (also spread out over the country).
Highlights include a planned road trip with my two sisters (which has been dubbed "Sisters Road Trip"), meeting my grandkids (I may have mentioned that before... [giggle]), my high school 40th reunion, seeing my daughter displaying her work and selling it at big comics convention in Portland, Oregon. I'm told the convention is HUGE and so I've arranged the loan of a walking frame so I can walk as much as I want but when I need to, I can sit. I also have a 3 day pass so I don't have to even try to do everything in one day. Oh and I get to have my photo taken with Matt Smith from Doctor Who!
I'll be popping in as often as I can, and hopefully keeping up with my SparkPoints. I know I'll be doing lots of walking but hopefully I'll get some workouts in here and there too. There are ways to do some basic weight training without dumbbells. And of course body weight exercises too. If I have room, I also have some resistance bands I can use as well. They don't take up a lot of space. I have tons of stuff to take for my kids and grandkids though. The nice thing is that my suitcases will have plenty of room after visiting everyone!
Anyway, today I'm catching up on some Spark reading. What are you all up to??
