Wow it's been a long time since I blogged!

I can't believe it's been a month since I blogged! So much has happened. Hubby and I decided it was time for me to retire, so I retired last Friday 9/13/13. I'll be watching my granddaughter 3 days a week, which will save everyone money, and hopefully she will get the attention and life lessons she needs. She is going to preschool 2 days a week, so I'm not too worried about her educational needs.
My mom isn't doing well. She turned 75 on August 5 and pretty much said I'm done living, it's time for me to die. She isn't doing anything for herself right now, including putting her arms into her nightgown tonight. My Dad doesn't help much with that though, he lets her get away with everything. He needs to make her do things for herself. I know it's easier to do it for her, but enough is enough!
This first week of retirement has been interesting. Trying to juggle my new schedule with my desired workouts. This morning I was out for my walk/run by 7 am so I could be home when my little buddy got there. I am also doing either the elliptical or treadmill (or both) during her nap
Hubby and I are doing our first half marathon this weekend. We are walk/running it and looking forward to it. The weather is supposed to be perfect, mid 60's and overcast. We anticipate finishing around the 3 hour mark, but know we will be done by the 4 hour mark.
Time to put on my big girl panties and deal with my parents health......
