    May we all never take lightly the costs that was given in the name of our American rights & freedoms. Our military deserve to be thanked & appreciated every day, they sacrifice what so many others are unwilling to do.
Happy Memorial Day. emoticon

    Yes, this is what Memorial Day is all about! I will be visiting my Dad's gravesite at the Veteran's cemetery later today. He did not die in service, but he did serve in the army during Vietnam and I am so proud! I am thankful for those who served and died, but also those who are serving or have served to give us our freedom! I know you are the proud mother of 2 sailors and you should be! Enjoy your family today!

    Each day we take our freedom for granted. I remember standing at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and watched as a wreath was presented and the guard was changed. It was the most moving experience of my life. Life is so very precious and these men and women risk that precious life for the whole of the country.

We have no right to ever forget that sacrifice.

Sunday....

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Nice quiet Sunday morning, husband and children in church. Got some me time. Worked out on Wii fit plus and 10 solution. Feeling pretty good.
Bought a new bathing suit yesterday...2 sizes smaller than the old old. It is getting kinda fun to shop for smaller clothes. And eating right seems to be our way of life. My 14 year old son lost about 10 lbs and my husband 21. My husbands bloodsugars are under control for the first time in a long time. My family knows that we won't buy any junk food and too many processed foods. They actually like it, now that I buy a lot of fruits and vegetables, and the kids are not asking for soda , candy or cookies all time. Once in a while we have a little candy, but not in the quantities that we used to.
So all in all we are doing good, going to the pool several times a week to swim and walk. Now I would like to get us all bikes, so we can hit all these nice trails around here. But everything in due time.

Jobs, Jobs and more Jobs......

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Well had an interview in Ocala this morning for a position as a Detention Nurse. It went well. They offered me the job, but I still have to pass two level 2 background checks and have to do a lot of paperwork and get a physical. It is also about 30 miles away.
This evening I got another call from one of the local Nursing Facilities, they want me to come in on Thursday for an interview. It is only about 3 miles from my house.
I also have an offer from an agency to work at different places in corrections or hospitals.
So now I have to weed through all this and make up my mind which will be the best fit and makes the most sense for me to take. Decisions, decisions. But I think whatever I choose will be alright.
I got a extension for my Wii fit Balance board to make it higher for my exercises. But I can't weigh myself on it. It showed that I lost 113 lbs since yesterday... that was just too funny. I wish that was true, since it showed that I was not obese and now overweight. But after I removed the extension, I was back to obese and my right weight. It sure was nice to dream.....lol

    Our family is getting ready to move to another state and I'll be out there hunting for a new job, too. Would love to know I had several options ;-) I believe you'll know which will be the best fit for you. Wishing you a wonderful life in serving others.

So much better to have options and be picking from them than to be feeling stuck taking the first offer to come up.

Water Aerobics

Tuesday, May 08, 2012

So today I went to my first water aerobics class. It was a lot of fun. It appears I am the youngest lady there. They all called me the kid. One little lady told me that she just turned 94 and she had a hysterectomy about 4 weeks ago and she is not slowing down. She is a true inspiration.
I had the lady laughing , when I had a problem putting the weight on my foot and almost drowned myself........Guess I got to practice that more often. But I got a great 60 minutes work out.
Today was also my anniversary , we have been married 27 years. Fixed us some great Breakfast and Lunch. Just enjoying each others company and went for a walk with the dogs tonight.

    I love water aerobics. I haven't done it for a long time. I do not have a pool close. It is great fun, more fun than exercise. Hope you enjoy!

    I hope that you had a great anniversary! Congratulations to both of you!

I love exercising in the pool. It makes me feel so weightless and it's certainly much easier to move around!

    emoticonHappy anniversary Glad you enjoyed your water aerobics class. Been thinking about taking one but want to check out the instructors first. Understand one of the instructors kicked two of the older ladies out of class because they couldn't keep up with rest of class. Certainly don't want to be in her class.
