Much thanks

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes and goodies! They were much appreciated.

Just wanted to let everyone that I'm still here, alive and kickin' I've just decided to take a month or two to work on "me"..It may sound odd, but the challenges, I think, were getting to be a much for me, because I was stuck, and letting my teams down, so I decided to step back and be my own challenge..I've not gone anywhere, not quit..Actually, I've lost 2 lbs since not worrying about anything but what I'm doing..Minds are tricky things, aren't they? lol Plus, my son's divorce/custody hearing is coming up in less than a month, and he's still having flare-ups with the diverticulitis, so that's on my mind, alot, too..He's going to have surgery sometime after the New Year, and I'll be going home to be with him for at least 6 weeks..Hate that he has to have surgery, but on the other hand, I'm excited about going to spend time with him and Kristynn..

On a different note, I've met with a wellness coach at the Y...We set up a routine for me, and will meet every 1-2 months, or if I have any questions, then give him a holler..He's a retired football coach, which I'm thinking "cool, someone who won't be afraid of giving me a kick in the butt if I need it", which is exactly what he said, that he'd have no problem with that, if it was needed lol

So, that's pretty much it, in a nutshell..I'll check in more often so no one thinks I've fallen off the face of the earth lol

    Sometimes you have to step back and take care of yourself. Just don't fall off the wagon. Also I hope your son's surgery goes well and recovery is swift.

    I'm so proud of you for working on YOU! It is hard to walk away from "things" especially when they are people but remember what the flight stewardess says..
