    They're all very cute. I used to make plastic canvas ornaments. I miss my craft projects. I'm ready to put together a sampler square afghan, but haven't made the time. Being part of this team and seeing all the completed projects is motivating me. Hopefully, someday soon I'll pick up my crochet and finish that afghan!

Pushing On

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

I got my work out in today I walk over 3 miles and did my upper body strengthening

we had walked (yes w the walker) 2 do a little Christmas shopping for La @ the dollar store

then we get home just in time 4 her school bus n as we r discussing her day fed ex shows up w the bikes that hubby ordered 4 Christmas (thank God for half price sales w free delivery); well needless 2 say La knows that all 3 of us got bikes; so glad cause as much as I enjoy getting my exercise in - these long walks really remind me of the spinal fusion n fluid retention causes the legs to hurt from them being so swollen n doing all the walking But now thanks to the Blessing I have a bike that will make it less painful

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Some how my blog yesterday didnt post; so I am going to blog 2x tday

did 30 mins on the wii yesterday & I did my core & lower body strengthening

I dont get it but I gained back the 9 lbs I lost praying its just the fluid retention cause I been exercising & eating less

I m not gonna give in I m going 2 push through

I even printed out a chart that I can check off things as I do them each day - this should help me 2 stay focused

adios until later

    Stay focused and don't fret too much. Sometimes I go up for a few weeks, then I have a big drop. If you stick to your plan, you will achieve your goals -- look at the bigger picture than just a day or even a week. emoticon

1 Month in North Carolina

Sunday, December 02, 2012

1 month ago today we arrived in North Carolina; the 4 of us - me - hubby - La (granddaughter) & grumpy (my father). We have never been to NC b4 ; we dont know anyone where we live. but I do hava a half sister in Erwin even though we havent seen here since we been here

We were gonna lose the family home to back taxes n liens (1 was even 10 yrs old) but instead we were able to sell it; the house was falling apart even though we tried 4 the last 5 yrs to repair it then hurricane sandy had her way with it. But thats neither here nor there. We took the money to relocate. As we were trying to figure where to move ; many ppl suggestions came but hubby n I decided to move to nc I have a half sister in Erwin as we were looking she suggested Fayetteville. We looked it up on line found a great deal then it fell through so we decided to rent.

SOOOO I now live in Fayetteville North Carolina near the Hope Mills border. We live in a mobile home in a fenced in area w security. La loves it she can finally go outside and play w/o me having to b w her. I lived in Camden NJ 2nd most dangerous n poorest place to live in the US to live.
The ppl r so nice down here - I live living in a community where ppl believe like I do in values n courtesy. I enjoy the peace n quiet. Then there is the weather back home they in winter coats n we r sitting outside in t-shirts.

We dont drive n the nearest food store is 3 miles; so w me using the walker hubby n I will walk there then take a cab home (the is no buses in this area). But we get things done n have
a nice discount store ROSE's its now my new favorite store. And only a little over a mile from us is Family Dollar & Dollar General n they sell almost everything that we need other then the meat & fresh produce

We have only been here a mth but I love it not to mention that the place is the perfect size for us n even w my pains I can take care of this place n grumpy who is an amputee can get around in his wheelchair.

    That sounds great - I could hardly believe it was 84 degrees here yesterday; we were sweating almost as much as the horses as we rode!

Hubby had a business stint in Charlotte last summer & I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to visit him out there... New assignment is in Washington DC so I'm holding out for Spring Break!

    emoticon to North Carolina! I am your neighbor to the west (I live north of Charlotte). I am also a transplant here & honestly, there are very few places I would rather live! It sounds like you all are settling in just fine & I hope you continue to enjoy living here!

Again, Welcome!
