Summers is winding down. Well actually in Florida summer will be here for a couple more months. I've spent most summer attaining a tan, something I'd never focused on. Just wanted the jiggly fat to look better:-) I got an unexpected benefit, I crave the sun light and fresh air. When I went to CA I had to get in the sun each day! I feel bereft if I don't get that time. Also the a/c is set to a warmer temp since I'm more acclimated to the outdoors.
It has been a trying time for the family. My stepson's mother died unexpectedly and the we all lost wonderful Hank. At 91 Hank lived a great life. One of those people every loves. A gentle but stern man that could change lives. Not many of us will be remembered with such fondness.
My mom is moving in two weeks and will be states away from me. I feel she has pushed me away this summer to start distancing us. She had an excuse everytime I invited her to visit.
I should finally be getting a vehicle in a month or so. After three years of hubby taking over my car when his van broke down, I'll be driving a Dodge mini van. Thanks to my father in law Hank. Months before he past he wanted us to have it since they were buying a special handicap van. Now I really want one of those little Fiats, something hubby can't put a ladder in! But at this point I'll take what I can get.
So I'm trying to exercise regularly and juice. But it has been a summer filled with candy. I have had a love affair with Baby Ruths. I'm onto almond m and m's today. Hormone cravings and am not buying the candy bars anymore. Just a few m and m's to get my chocolate fix.
