The only predictable thing in life is change. Dh is retiring before we can afford it because now is before there is nothing left of him to retire. He is coming home. For the first time in four and a half years we will get to live in the same house again. IN THE MEANTIME, we are combing two households into one smaller house, getting the other in proper shape to be rented, helping the older child get out on her own, dealing with the details of leaving the job our insurance coverage came through... Oh, and dealing with the fact that my part time high stress job is, at least until the rent starts coming in, our main source of income. While raising our really neat kid. Life really is just a series of back to back roller coasters and carnival rides. Sometimes you’re on the rattling wooden coaster, sometimes your spinning madly in the tilt-o-whirl. Every once in a while you get to take a break on the carousel.

My Goals:
Get hubby home.

Feel like whatever this "single mom during the week" situation asks of me, I can handle it!

Mental Health: Feel strong in my relationships and have more of them again.

My Program:
Consistent exercise and water.

Protein up. Salt down.

Fit regular strength exercise back into my life.

Make time to do things with the hubby when he's here that do not just involve property maintenance. Take him (and his beloved camera) hiking. Go mini-golphing as a family.
