Checking In before Heading Out

Friday, June 19, 2015

Hey there,

I wanted to check in with all you lovely sparklers before I head off again.

I'm headed to Jacksonville, FL to visit my grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins in the morning. I'm not entirely sure how many days we will be down there. We just found out that my aunt's fiance passed away from a heart attack while he was on a business trip. So this trip will not be as happy and laughter filled as anticipated.

I managed to do the 10 day streak for 10,000 steps, but then on the 11th day I was super lazy. So today I started my new streak. I hit 12,700 today, so I was pleased.

I also re-downloaded some of the Couch to 5k podcasts and successfully completed Week 1 Workout 1. I've gotten to week 5 before, so I'm hoping I will be able to persevere and do the whole program this time.

Oh, and the coffee date turned into milkshake, movie, and coffee date. So it was nice. And if you are wondering if you should see Jurassic World, you should.

    Sorry to hear about the man's passing. I do hope he had good Life Insurance so the family doesn't have a lot of money issues.
    I had a neighbor some years ago, who went to get married and they still required a blood test from the doctor. They called him and said his blood test appeared to be flawed and he needed to see a certain doctor and find out how he was. Well, they found out he had some type of blood cancer illness. Within six weeks of getting married, he was so ill he couldn't stand on his own. He went in to chemotherapy, but his ex-wife showed up to take care of him, with the 3 kids who were in middle school. Finally, he just moved back home to his ex-wife's house and he died, as he wanted to be around his family and children. My neighbor was so upset over it, but even though they did get married he didn't stay with her.

    So happy for you all around! Very sad about your uncle. Funerals are odd & you will have crying laughter & family around.

    God bless & be encouraged!
