Okay, this is not THAT March Madness! It is the madness of which my life consists right now.
1. I found the Mother of the Groom dress yesterday! Yippee! It was a "nice" size, and will keep me on my toes with nutrition and exercise, which is always a good thing anyway! I had a very good time with the future DIL and her stepmother. Her stepmother commiserated about the exspouses. The biological mother of the bride is a size 4. She is a lovely size 12, but some of you will understand the comparisons that one makes sometimes in these situations. My exspouse's wife is probably a size below me. I am happy in my skin these days, though, and was happy with the size 12 that I purchased.
2. This is the week before spring break at the community college where I work part time as an instructor. Students are tired; instructors are tired. Spring break can't come a moment too soon.
3. DH and I are leaving for Spring Break to Pensacola on Thursday morning! My DS and BIL live there. There is a 5K planned [walking], a champagne brunch - just a bit for me will do, and a Girl's Day with DS and me - I am looking forward to it! This will be the longest we have traveled with Sugar Dog and that should be very interesting. We had two mishaps in the motorhome last year - an accident where our motorhome was totaled, but thank the good Lord no one was hurt - and then another later in which a tree moved [LOL!] and DH scraped said tree and did several thousand dollars worth of damage which has now been repaired. I just pray for safe, accident free travels.
4. All seems to be going well with SD moving in for a couple of months. She began orientation at the hospital today. She is so excited to be in this phase of her life. She does like to cook, and it is going to be a bit tricky to navigate with my choices, but I began this journey with the mindset of "this has to work for me", so I will make this work as well.
5. DD is involved in another romantic relationship again, and is planning to elope before the end of this month. I have told her my misgivings; DS has tried talking to her, and she gets upset with both of us when we try to get her to see that this is indeed another symptom of her diagnosis. I am able to "turn off" the worry so that it isn't a 24/7 thing. Her dad had to make his own mistakes and learn in very hard ways; I suspect that is going to always be the case here as well.
6. I am involved in a couple of challenges and that is helping with me to undo the madness from November/December when I didn't track well and didn't exercise well.
