I live in Queensland, Australia. I'm single, work long hours and have been living a very unhealthy life style that I'm keen to turn around
Happy to hear from you Margaret. Glad to hear that you are doing well, but that's a shame that you will have to be concerned about moving now.
I so appreciate the fine leading you have done on the group. Your heart shines so clearly in all you say and do for others. I consider it a personal favor, and a favor I certainly did not deserve once I left the group. Again, I hope you forgive me for sticking you with it.
I believe that if a group has no activity for 90 days it is considered inactive, and then all SPers are able to ask permission to take it over if they are so inclined. I certainly understand how pressed for time you are.
Good to hear from you. I know the feeling about time getting away. Unfortunately for me my work week (M-Th) are very long days which makes it hard to do more than the minimum on SP and cram everything else in too. And I'm a person who needs lots of sleep and these 6+ interrupted hours just aren't working so well. So I do what I can and that's that.
Sorry to hear that you have to move out. Hope that all works out for you. Don't think of yourself as a hoarder...think of it as just not enough time in the day to clean! At least that's what I try to tell myself. I really need to weed through and get rid of junk around here. Not enough time!!!! Maybe this year....maybe not!
The holidays were quiet. Just the five of us. My granddaughter had a blast. It's so much fun watching through their eyes. Before Thanksgiving (end of November) she lost her first top tooth. The Saturday before Christmas she lost her other top tooth. She saw Santa that day and said she wanted her two front teeth! He thought that was hysterical! She was able to stay up to see New York's midnight (11:00 our time), jumping up and down, exploding streamers in the living room and then promptly fell asleep. And didn't budge at midnight! I didn't want to stay up that late but I did, came home and couldn't fall asleep until 2 am. I'm still paying for it.
Sounds like you've had some pretty fun trips lately. Was there alot of travel involved or is it relatively close by? Just to get away for a bit (fun or work) is fun. Anything to change up the day. I hope your brother will be able to come in the fall (or is it your spring?). That will be such a fun time exploring. I'd love to do more have that here in the States but am looking forward to a trip to Disney and surrounding Orlando. It'll be fun.
Which is why I'm trying to psych myself up and get into the right frame of mind to get back into losing weight. I've joined a 13 in 13 weeks challenge but somehow I'm just not that motivated to do everything that needs to be done - I don't think I have enough time without cutting into my sleep. Which is why I'm not losing weight. DUH! Anyway, I'm going to try and be more accountable to myself and maybe one or two others (FreetheGoddess is one of them) and hopefully by regularly checking in we can reach our goals.
Know that you are in my thoughts and sending good wishes all the time. Keep in touch - I value our friendship. You are one of the best!
