10 Years from Today

Friday, November 16, 2012

It is an interesting idea to think of myself 10 yrs from today. That is the technique suggested on Spark Coach today. First of all I will be 75 yrs. old and my children will be 54, 52, 48 and 46. My husband will be 80. The year will be 2022 and life will be good. I do know I will be a tiny lady weighing about 110 lbs. Age will cause me to be wrinkly, saggy and as long as I am not in pain I can live with it. I am hoping my hands do not deteriorate too much I just hope my spine does not shrink too much more. I am under 5' now. I will probably live in Canada full time rather than the 6 months here in La Paz and 6 months there. Moving back and forth is a lot of work. But that will depend on DH. If he is still alive and wants to go back and forth I can live with that. My life will involve my grandkids as much as they can handle. They are a wonderful bunch. Selina will be 30, Kierra 28 and Jenelle will be 20. They will be successful lovely women very loving and caring. The twins Carolyn and Justine will be 14 and progressing well. They have most excellent parents who won't let them go astray. Allie will be 14 and AJ will be 12. They will be a little harder to get ahold of due to parents but I will work on it. I will have excellent friends, get lots of exercise with dogs and generally live a good life. My future seems secure but we'll see. Our house is so good and I hope to live there a good long time taking good care of it and slowly fixing the yard up more. It takes time, energy and money. In 10 yrs. I should make a lot of progress.

    Sounds like a plan to me!! Only thing, if you get down to your goal BEFORE 10 years, then why would you be wrinkly?? You'll be a sleek, sassy Grandma!!!

Keep on keeping on!! emoticon

Shoes Again

Thursday, November 15, 2012

The other day I said to my DH 'I think for once in my life I finally have enough shoes.' He of course said " You are a woman and I thought women never had enough shoes." To which I just stuck out my tongue. But seriously,I feel I need at least one pair of crocs, a pr. of sandals for every day and one pr. for good. I also need a pr. of runners for walking or jogging. The crocs I had before got paint on them when I painted the boards for the roof, my sandals died of old age and my runners had a hole in the big toe area on the right foot. So I had to replace all of those. The runners were $50 to start with (a bargain) and I got them for 35% off. And they were my favorite brand(which I better not state). My sister found me some great leather sandals at major store (which I'd better not mention either). They were a vision of lovliness and comfy at about $45 and the crocs (not really but the same) were $20 at City Club store here in La Paz. Sigh! I have big wide feet so this feels like a great accomplishment.

Thank You!

Wednesday, November 14, 2012

This morning I feel an overwhelming desire to express my gratitude for the feeling of community this site has granted me. The kindness expressed here often and with such unconditional love is strangely soothing and loving. There are such a wide range of wonderful people who check in regularly and respond immediately to compliment, comment and suggest doable things. On the other hand the vulnerbility of all the individuals on this site gives me an opportunity to stretch my caring muscles as well. It is a win/win situation. The main goal here is to lose weight and I have lost enough that I could stop but I will continue to work on it and to never lose sight of exercising, tracking and improving nutrition. For this I thank you all mightily!

Chica

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

When we arrived in south Baja we picked up a little white dog off the street. Since then we have seen to it that she got all her shots, dewormed, no fleas or mange and it turns out she is mostly schnauzer. This is all good but then we had to pay attn. to how she acts with the dog who belongs to this house. Chica is a bit of a bully. Not major but she steals Lalas bed and food. She is still not up to snuff so we will wait a while till we get her spayed. Lala on the other hand has a mouth full of rotten teeth. Not just a little, a very disgusting mess. I am going to enquire what it would cost to pull them. Chica is 2 and Lala is 8.

Materialistic

Monday, November 12, 2012

Last night out of the blue our fortmer landlady phoned and said would we like to come and get our stuff. For sure!! Pretty well everything we left was there though she had put it all in boxes so we could not go from room to room to check. When I got home and unpacked the only thing missing of note was my tablecloth. I was a little bit perturbed. It meant more to me than any other item. This morning we went over there hoping to catch her before she returned to Cabo San Lucas and sure enough she had taken the tablecloth off meaning to wash it. I took it as is and washed it and now it is so gorgeous on the table. Funny how attached we get to our stuff. In Canada it is my chandelier in the dining room. One yr. I found it and bought it even though we really could not afford it and every time I enter the dining room I admire it. I am far too materialistic.

    No denial here......conceited, proud, and materialistic. I am still a nice person though and am never unkind if at all possible.
