Another year in the books

Saturday, August 11, 2012

Well, I turned 51 yesterday....with none of the trepidation that accompanied my last birthday. Turning 50 was a big thing looming ahead of me for months....not sure what I thought I was gonna do about it LOL.

Things on the healthy living front have been challenging. I have been doing A LOT of travel. I am essentially doing the job of 2 people since mid-May. The good news is that we are hiring people and there will be a promotion in it for me. I'm very grateful for that. It's still hard, but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

We have an unexpected opportunity at the end of August to take a vacation in Sedona, AZ. I was there once, years ago, and it's spectacular. My husband has never been. We were invited by some good friends to join them in a condo they got out there and, due to my travel, I've accumulated enough miles to make the airfare free. You can't beat that with a stick!

I'm very late on my August plan, but I did develop one I think I can do even with the biz travel and vacation. I feel like I've been missing around here a bit, and I want to change that too. I encourage all of you to keep tabs on me and ask me how I'm doing! I am susceptible to peer pressure. emoticon

Let's do this!!

    Sorry I missed your birthday! I was in Michigan and didn't spend much time on Spark. I had a wonderful time, and am now getting back into a healthier lifestyle at home. I am so happy for your opportunity to go to Sedona soon. I've been there once too, and you're right, it is spectacular! It sounds like you deserve a vacation! Happy belated birthday, and have a wonderful trip!

    Happy Birthday! emoticon I remember when I turned 50 woo hoo!. I am 57 and can't believe that I am that old. There is no way I am that old. But I guess I am. Have a great day.
