My lovely Sparkfriend CBailyC posted a comment on my page the other day, which aol kindly notified me of. I read it, realised it'd been awhile and the pudge is coming back and the health issues are coming back...and I'd better get my ol' butt in gear again.
Been an interesting 179 days. Nothing horrible has happened, but I just got into the "meh" groove and couldn't get out. I quit excersising until my lovely daughter encouraged me to walk with her again. Then she moved out and I have no incentive.
Husband, youngest kid and I had two lovely weeks in the States early this month. Five days in Oregon with my mom, two days in KS (during an intense tornado outbreak...scary!) with my dad, a night in Vegas, then a road trip through NV and AZ and into CA. My first trip to Disneyland - yay!
We are still contemplating a move back to Oregon as soon as the two youngest are out of high school in November. My husband is ready for a change and I want to get back to be closer to my family. Of course, daughter is living with her partner now...which I never forsaw. Son has a wonderful girlfriend and probably will be staying too. I never, ever contemplated that when I left Australia they'd stay behind! I know it's all part of growing up and moving on but heck - it's sure happened quick.
So yesterday I had a sort of anxiety attack about the whole thing. Things are changing too fast, but not fast enough if that makes sense. This is the perfect time to concentrate on myself - somehow concentrating on myself takes me out of myself. I can worry about getting out for a walk, how to tweak my eating patterns, etc. Here I go! But I admit today I am having one last blast of cinnamon toast...
