my short trip to Charleston SC with the hubby :)

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

My husband and i met in charleston SC on saturday afternoon... semi halfway from durham nc and tampa fl... We had nice weather except for i think it 3 hours of rain on sunday afternoon (which we made it nap time lol) and then went downtown charleston.. we went to the beach sunday morning and monday morning before we left...... hopefully i can add a couple pics ... but it was a well deserved rest from what,s been going on at my fathers.. he is getting sicker and having more bad days then good days... he is still in denial of alot of things but... i know he knows he is not doing well... he is still kinda fnustional.. and i do let him make a sandwich for himself or whatever he thinks he can do do... i go behind him and sweep and vacuum and do laundry make stuff like egg salad tacos franks and beans brownies cinnamon rolls cookies lol cakes.. yeah he is spoiled.. i set p coffeee so all we have to do in the am is hit the button...(makes him feel like he did something in the am) so... when i am not here i am at the gym or food shopping or doing odd errands for him... or i am here and on the computer (very limited) or studying for my recertification for group fitness.. or watching a sport thing with him lol... i can actually talk sports again lol.. ugh... something i cant stand lol but i know more about baseball football golf and wrestling then i care to know lol... oh well as long as he is comfortable thats all that matters.... and we even watch old movies on tmc with robert osborne lol.... yep thats my life.. glad i had time away .. it was a nice break and my husband told me when he saw me.. OMG you really have thinned out and starting to get your muscles back :D yay :)

    Sounds great!!! Don't you love the wild life here in FL? We have a little lake here at resort and my sister and I go every morning to watch the gator swim and gradually climb onto the bank.
Sandhill cranes think they own the land here!!! Wish I knew more about the wildlife, not only here but everywhere.
Six miles is a really long walk!!! We live on 20 acres of woods, but have to be so careful of ticks that I don't tromp through the woods.
Glad you got out and hope all is going well for you. Julie is in NC again helping their friend.

    You fed the cat the bird? lol.. the bird had a horrible day!

6 miles is awesome. I wish we had trails through the woods around here. The bike path is nice, but it is 100 feet from the road.

I have had a lot of tim to reflect and read and think about my next step in this life... I think i am heading in the fitness direction.. and thinking of becaoming certified in group fitness again like i was a few years ago.. now that i am licensed in Zumba.. also what to learn person training and some specialities like kettlebells and such. more i learn the better iwill be.. also want to get certified in the nutrition aspect.. so once My journey here in tampa is done.. i will be looking into that field and see where it leads me :)

Hope all is well with everyone.. i dont have alot of time to catch up with each and everyone of you with limited acces tot he web :) hugs and love.. always in my thoughts and prayers.. And I am still watch BL on Tuesday nigHTS!!

    Been wondering about you and why we hadn't been hearing much of you. No access to Internet is frustrating, isn't it?
Pray you are doing well and helping your father in his latter days.
Talk again, Carol

    This is a great idea. Especially since you probably don't want a 50 hour a week job. You can do something you love to do, with the schedule you or a gym set up, and have Tuesday nights off.lol. to watch BL.

Hope everything is going well in Tampa, and you and your father are having some good talks.
