Monday Morning

Monday, August 30, 2010

Got some housework done, started working on altering Mom's dress for the wedding. It's gonna be alot of work...but got the shoulders taken in. Want her to try it on before I go any further to make sure we've taken up enough. At least we have started.

Co-worker taking us to pick up our car tonight. I think I'm ready for this new adventure. I want to explore the countryside with my hubby and have "Fun". A new stage of life. Looking forward to blowing off some steam. Clearing out the garage will be worth it in multiple ways....we've needed to do it for a long time...the car gave us incentive. It was worth it to push hubby to clean it out and help him clean and carry stuff around.

A new stage of life...starting to deal with things long neglected. Life is passing by and we need to get on with some of the dreams I've had. We wait too long and the moment is gone.

This year has been a year of progress for me.

Exercise has become a part of my daily routine.

Ziplining...dealing with fear of heights...not letting them limit me and not letting fear be in control. Respect fears but don't let them paralyze me.

Cleaning out the's been full of too much collecting and then with closing down both parents homes in the last couple of years...the overflow went into our garage. Just didn't seem to have the energy or strength to deal with it. A new car stimulated me...not to keep it outside.

My husband finally got rid of two vehicles that haven't worked on the driveway and we donated them to charity and they came and got them.

Now a Fun Car. We have dreamed of this and talked about it all our marriage. But there was always other priorities children, parents, family etc. etc. and now it's OUR TIME. I am so looking forward to time alone exploring with my hubby. A new way to blow off steam and explore and not put it off until the moment has passed or we're too old or disabled to climb in and out of it. Maybe he'll have to invent a chair lift to get us in and out of it :)

I have made positive changes in my life this year with eating. Progress seems slow with the scale but notice changes in body reshaping. My legs are strong and I've had the energy to lift, carry and move heavy things in the garage. I've had the strength to do what before seemed overwhelming.

This year has been a productive year toward taking care of myself and moving towards a heathier me. I see the positive changes in my life. I am doing it!

Saturday Morning

It's Saturday morning my day to sleep in and I woke up at 5:30. Must be rested or used to the time to get up. Looking forward to today. Going to take a drive and look at a new car. See if it's what we want. Will enjoy the drive through the countryside. Gotta get some housework done before we head out....

    Why is it we always wake up early on our day's off with no problem? Then on the day's we can't sleep in we complain about it? Life's to short to get all we need to done don't ya think?

Have fun buddy!

    Good Morning Kathleen......

You sound so much like me and my parents. Hang in there, we can do this! I wander sometimes how much trouble I was to my mom when I was small. I think God knew that dad would pass first and that mom would need help in her old age.

Your an encouragement for me to finish each day!

Wednesday Morning

Success! Think we found a pair of shoes for my mom that will work for the wedding. At least we have a pair in hand. It went so much easier than I had thought. With God all things are possible. I just had myself all worked up that it wasn't going to go well and it did. Changing my attitude always helps. If I'm upset or carries over onto her. Treasure these precious times with her as one day they will be gone and I can't get them back. For the most part we get along well and have fun together.

Another busy day today. Boy this week is crazy. Off to exercise
