June 1 already but I'm ready

Sunday, June 01, 2014

ready to get back to paying better attention to me and my health that is!

Hey I really did miss all of you and I actually did miss blogging but I'm back now. Just not going to kid myself that I'll be blogging daily - probably not going to happen given everything that is going on. I am going to go for a weekly blog and plan on keeping tabs on all of you at least every other day - so be good!

Life since my last blog in December has just been a whirlwind of activity. Our trip to Australia, PM's foot surgery, MOVING (big stressor) and them PM's retirement and figuring out our new cashflow. You get the picture.

Our move to Idaho was a really big stressor for me. We couldn't afford a moving company to pack and load so we ended up packing everything ourselves and then rented from U-Haul. We did hire workers at both ends to load and unload the truck for us. Anyway it all went well and we are getting settled into our new home. We have a couple of major expenses coming up in the form of a new roof and a new furnace but we knew that from the inspection and negotiated that into the purchase price. Now however we do have to come up with the cash!!

We have a new doctor and I just went for my "medicare" physical - surprising I'm doing pretty well but you can imagine that my new doctor is cautioning me about my weight and the associated health threats. However she is doing it in an encouraging way rather than just a cold brutal way. I'm going to really like this doctor I think!

Well enough about me - I have to check up on what all of you have been up to and then figure out this Spark website again! Lots of changes!!!

You all take care.

    Glad to see you back! I'm happy that your new doctor is encouraging rather than negative. I am glad you are still in good health but you know it can be better! Still lots of 2014 left, so let's make the most of it!

You sure have been busy. Retirement does present a new way of living, seems like you are assessing and being realistic about the changes.
WTG on finding a new doc already and making yourself a priority, Sounds like that doctor can be helpful in your journey.
