Choices in my face

Sunday, July 22, 2012

I am about to be kicked out of my house for 10-14 days while the interior foundation gets leveled in my concrete slab home, thank you Texas' drought last summer. Just about every item in the house needs to be moved to secure, minimum dust environment. I've been working on this project for a year. Lots of decluttering for me, for the kids, removed all the flooring. Pets boarded. While we're out of the house, we're lucky enough to seek shelter in my nephew's apt in Galveston.

So, here's the "In my face" obvious choice for our forced vacation: to junk or not to junk? I'm figuring in some calorie splurges, clinging to healthy options for the rest of the day.

Great thing about being in the apt is having a place to store and cook food. Fruits, salad veggies, sandwich bread, lunch meat. Healthy, healthy, healthy! Carefully edit the stuff the kids want to toss in the grocery cart, leave the rum at home. Time in the salt water, jogging along the sea wall, walking along the Strand. Active! Active! Active!

Not sure how internet access will work out. So, my memory bank will have to carry the support from my beloved sparkfriends. OK, I'm ready, motivation and plan in place!

    Wow, that's alot to do sorry about the movie out, but sounds like a chance to declutter(isn't funny how things like this come up, and make us have to do this, but how muchhappier we are with out all after?) But I did like, Time in the salt water, jogging along the sea wall, walking along the Strand. That part does sound great! Try to have lots and lots of fun!
