A Super Saturday

Sunday, January 06, 2013

My BF has been very sick with some nasty upper respiratory bug that decided to turn into pneumonia. By the time he was willing to see a doctor :) he was VERY sick and i was very surprised that they did not admit him. He's lucky he went to an emergicare clinic rather than the ER. He is on massive drugs and doing better (thankfully!) and we are finally sleeping through the night again. Amazing how much more energized you feel when you get a solid nights sleep!! emoticon

I did not get on the elliptical first thing. I don't know why that makes me smile. What can i say?? I am basically a slacker!!! I had five kids in 6 years and most of the next 20 yrs were a blur of chaos, cleaning, laundry, picnics, school (homeschooled them all through high school), kickball, refereeing, nursing, cooking, etc...I guess i don't feel guilty about being a slacker comparatively :)
It took me a least of year of an empty nest to get used to being alone ( i don't think i was alone for 20yrs!!) and to having not that much to do. You can only clean the house so many times in a week...seriously. But now that is has been a couple years, i like it.

Our baby bunnies are almost 5 weeks old. They are so stinking adorable!! We have a large pen for them in our TV room so they entertain us alot. They just learned to drink from a regular waterer today. They are little eating and pooping machines. Thankfully, they are very simple to clean up after and my garden loves their droppings. When you take the lid off the pen, they stand on their back legs with their little ears perking up, looking with great expectation for what treat you are bringing. They are running around the room as i type:) This week we are going to list them for sale. It will be interesting if we have a difficult time selling them since it's January.

I may not have gotten on the elliptical first thing, but I did get 20 min in and did a sparkpeople abs workout. I really love the video workouts. It's so easy to do a video or two while i watch the news or have Ellen on in the background :) I am really feeling the arm and lower body workouts i did yesterday. I do love that feeling!!

We took all the Christmas decorations and the tree down today. I miss it already. I love the glow of Christmas lights. The room looks empty now. I got out all my snowmen, cut out a snowman quilt, and i have a glass block craft involving Christmas lights to work on. That should keep me busy :)

I got new budget software called You Need a Budge last year, but never really got the hang of using it. Friday i took my first Webinar and learned how to use it. I spent yesterday cleaning out my files and calculating my receipts for 2012. I'm ready to do my taxes and it made getting my budget set up much easier. I live on a basic budget that exists in my head but i want to save more and get my money working for me.

We have been puzzle crazy lately. We have done 3 in the past two weeks. I think we are addicted. We finished a really cool panoramic of Las Vegas today and started a 1500 piece of the Italian countryside. This one is going to be hard and will hopefully take us more than a couple days!

Well enough rambling for tonight!! Keep your eye on the prize and if you stumble, just get up and keep going!

    I definitely stumbled today, but tomorrow will be better. I'm sure of it.

    I'm also early in the empty-nest years. I love it.
