I am so exhausted. Everyone in my household has been sick. That's part of the 'joy' of having grandkids living here and returning to school. They left for their house this morning for a weekend with daddy who isn't able to move here until March due to his practice contract (neurologist). Anyway, we have four days and nights without the little ones so I'm hoping I can get some things done that need doing. But, I also hope we can get healthy here as there is a move in our future in about 4 weeks. I must spend time each day sorting and discarding. I'm glad there is so much to co that is so physical. I know this is good for me on so many levels. But, still it is hard, very hard. I look forward to the weekend when my husband will be here to help. I think we can accomplish a lot if we just determine to do so. Yes, I'm worn out...again! But, I do see the light at the end of the tunnel and am thankful for every moment of extra movement this allows me to do. Have a great day everyone!

I don't remember when I last set goals to accomplish by my birthday so thought to myself early this morning...there's no time like today! So here's my hope for that magic date - 10/5:
1. Walk a 5K
2. Find a condo to downsize into
3. Lose 5 more pounds
4. Finish clearing out debris from all my closets and cupboards: Debris = clothes I don't/can't wear, expired foods, duplicate appliances and tools and such, useless papers, books I won't use again, etc. etc. etc.
5. Finish one of my crochet projects or my granddaughter's Christmas stocking
6. Start packing to move
If I can hit these marks I will feel pretty successful!

Now-a-days there's never a dull moment at my house. With our daughter and her three little ones always on the move I use all I have to keep going. Though fatigue can become overwhelming and I must retreat to rest a bit, for the most part I'm keeping up pretty well. We've also been looking for a condo to downsize to and let the kids have the house for a few years. We've found what I think could be just perfect for us. It's a little smaller than I'd hoped, but the location is great for my DH's commute and for me to really enjoy some big city living. We made an offer, but we must wait and see what happens. It is such an exciting time. My diet is suffering a little these days --- not the calories, but the content. Fortunately one of my grandsons loves smoothies and both the boys love to help make them almost every morning. What a delightful way to start the day. After that, things get pretty crazy. Like I said, Never a dull moment here. I'm loving ever bit of insanity, every hug and kiss, every "I love you". How could I ever ask for more?!
