Still struggling but easier every day

Monday, March 19, 2012

It has been a real struggle to get back on track after my dad's death in July.
What a jolt that was and everything else that followed. Every day was more drama and things that needed my attention so like all woman I got neglected.

It is a shame we don't take as good care of ourselves as we do others.

With my last blog I told most of the adventure that set me back since July but there were many more. I wanted to put in a new floor in my living room and bedroom. So finally got the laminate beautiful looks so much like real wood. Had someone come to install it for a deal a friend. He calls me on my weekend away to say he could lay it but it would come up in a year. Under the carpet was particle board and anything else you could name and the joists were mouldy and wet so had to take out my whole floor and under that was rocks Yep rocks so had to decide what we were going to do so a basically easy not to expensive job got costly and time consuming. I lived with no floor just rocks for a couple of weeks. Then things just kept happening. So 2011 will go down as one of my worst years ever.
The lawsuit by my brother everyone I talk to has one horror story or another about an estate and at least one family member is alienated from the family afterwards. Sad but true a friend of mine said if you love your kids don't leave them any money to fight over isn't that sad. Hopefully when I get the tax return back from Canada Revenue hopefully that issue will be settled.
The two falls I had have been settled one payment I have received the other is in the mail so that is done.
I am going this weekend hopefully to make my funeral arrangements so that is done and over with much better than life insurance. The family doesn't have to take care of anything just a couple of phone calls.
I have been getting to the pool pretty regularly at least 3 times a week still having a hard time tracking my food daily and that is the one thing that really helps me to keep on track. I really have to challenge myself to do that daily.
I have been getting on spark every day for a few minutes. Now I have to make myself track my food. Unless I track daily I really don't keep track of what I'm eating even when I think I am eating good I may not be.

Time to take the bull by the horns and really FOCUS on what I want to do.
Every day is a struggle but it will get easier with time. Teri
