Tell me what's new with you!

Friday, January 15, 2021

Hi friends! Life has been so busy (how is that even possible while being on stay-at-home orders??!!) I started a new job as a radiology tech assistant at the hospital where I do my clinicals in hopes that when I graduate I can get hired down the street instead of having to drive a half hour to work. We lost a hospital when Paradise burned down so work around here is competitive. I have been in training these last weeks and I will work this weekend but what I really wanted before school started again and it gets even more nuts, was to connect here again.

We have another wedding in June, this time our daughter. After reading my last blogs right before our son's wedding, I know I'd like to try again to feel better about myself that day so I'm focused again. We also found out today that she is expecting! It will be a joyous day for sure.

How is everyone?? What's new??

    Wow! Lots of fun stuff going on with your family!! The pandemic has eliminated any social life I had in the community and the days pretty much run together. My husband has been able to continue to golf through most of this but he tries to get me out to drive, hike or visit local sights. Not my previous life but it's something. While the weather was still decent we could get together with friend for wine and conversation on a fairly regular basis. The cold has ended that! I really miss spending time with the grandkids. That's been the most difficult for me!
    I had not lost any weight before pandemic and continued to slowly gain. Finally, I was DONE! I joined weight watchers online and slowly started working out. Since June I have lost 20 pounds and work out about 3x a week with Silver&Fit on Facebook or YouTube. They have lots of classes and they are all offered at beginner, intermediate and advanced level. I have gotten so I enjoy them (well, most of the time). I feel so much better and can tell a difference with my stamina, balance and strength.
    I hope all continues to go well with you and your family! Congrats on the wedding and especially the new baby!!
    So glad to see you back here!

    oh my gosh, CONGRATULATIONS! Wow, you're gonna be a hot, young Grandma, LOL.

    I'm good. Work is slow but that's to be expected, to many patients calling and saying they want to wait until after the have their vaccine before doing dental work. Shame, since our environment is so safe, but I do understand. I'm feeling better these days, doctor very happy with my last blood work so I am going in the right direction, hooray!

    Welcome back! Congrats on the new job, and the new grand baby! While I’m not equipped to tell you what’s new, as I only recently returned from a several year hiatus, I can tell you you’re awesome for coming back to get in gear again 💪🏻😊
