I'm In Michigan and Ohhhhhhh how sick I have been

Hello Divas, Guys and Dolls,

I hope everyone is doing well, in all that you promised that you would do, in the "2013" year!!!!!

In my previous blog, I told everyone I would be coming back to Michigan to help a sibling out and I've been here since January 20, 2013. Let me tell you something, if I didn't love and support my family, my behind would be back in Florida, enjoying the 80 something weather.

Since I have been in Michigan, it has done one of three things, it has either snowed liked the devil, rained as if there was no tomorrow, or has been cold as a "witch's tit", literally. Also, I have been sick since that Monday, I started off with the flu that I had gotten from my nieces and nephews, which turned into something much more awful, pneumonia.............darn....
....can a girl get a break. Today, is the first day that I have felt good enough to want to do anything, and I mean was even at the point where I didn't want to even go to the bathroom, because everything hurt, yes
I can laugh about it now, but it wasn't so funny a few days ago........

But through all of this, I have been able to continuting fasting...........I've lost a lot more because of all of the water I consumed..............and as much as I hate water, it was the only thing that agreed with me and my insides................

Now, on the other hand, I haven't been to the gym.........and I am really disappointed in how the Michigan YMCA's membership is paid up through to the end of March, 2013 in Florida...........I was told that I could have 5 away free visits at any Y, well, it's not true here in Michigan.......I was told that I have 1 free visit and for every visit after that it will cost me $5 per visit. Now, seeing that I go to the gym 5 days a week that will be $25 per week, $100 per month.......Now I pay $31 per month in Florida on the scholarship plan, so why in the he## would I pay $100 per week...................but this is the kicker, if I apply for the scholarship program, which is what I am on in Florida, which only took one day, I have to wait 3 weeks for an answer, to see if I am eligible................Michig
an suuuuuuuuucks big time on this..........but it won't stop me from exercising, I will utilize the City of Detroit recreation centers that have workout equipment.

Anyhow, just thought I would share what's going on with me here in Michigan.............right now I really wanna go home, but family comes first.................

So with this being said, to all my SparkPeople...............big emoticon's and emoticon's and just..........."keep it moving.............keep it moving"

    Oh honey, that DOES blow!! If you send me a SparkMail with your real e-mail in it, I will send you pictures of the Florida sun! I took one the other day as the sun was so very bright and ended up getting the moon brightened right next to it. Looked like we were headed for an eclipse!! LOL

    But to GRIND IN THE PAIN for you, I have petunias blooming, all my maples are red-budding and leaves are unfolding. My hibiscus are still blooming - those things are just CRAZY! And the breeze today with the warmth would make you a full-time sun worshipper.

    Then again, here are the cruddy points... the gnats are everywhere, the mosquitoes are already biting, and I have a dang sunburn that would make any white girl proud! But I can do without the horseflies and LOVE BUGS! Man, they are everywhere.

    Alaska Man and I spent the evening of my birthday together (the 28th). I sure wish I could say it was romantic, but "Shark Week" as we prefer to call TOM around here (I know, funny name, but I love it!) showed up that morning and ruined all my carefully laid plans. Mother Nature is a beyotch this month!!

    I hope you get to feeling better and can get some good care and then the gym mess straightened out. I cannot believe the Florida membership doesn't transfer. But that is Michigan for you... "the BACKWARD state". What part are you in? I know Lansing rolls up the sidewalks and locks down by 9pm and the only thing open after that is the movie theater and Subway. HAHA Even the tattoo parlors shut down at 9pm! CRAZY for being a college town, but maybe that is why.

    I am going to keep up with you while you are there. And I will enjoy antagonizing you with amazing weather updates. But come June, I will be ready to come and visit Michigan!! LOL

    Hugs and Love, Dollface! Now get better and get healthy!

    Glad you're feeling better, and sorry that the Y in Michigan sucks. Take care of those babies and yourself, and before you know it, it will be time to go back home. emoticon
