Once again!

Friday, November 06, 2020

Good afternoon all. Tuesday I once again came back to Spark, after about a 3 year absence.

My weight, ankles and back made it too hard for me to walk the golf course this year. Every round I played required me to use a cart which meant little walking. Now that I am back to Spark and exercise I have found I am so out of shape that by the time I walk a block my heart is pumping hard and I am breathing really heavy. My new starting goal is to walk 20 minutes a day 4 days a week. If I work at this and slowly boost my time and distance maybe I will be able to walk the course next year.

Monday I spread my Mom and Dad’s ashes together. This was something they had requested. Dad ashes have been with me for a little more than 4 years and Mom’s for a couple of months. The day was absolutely beautiful with the sun just rising. There were clear skies, no breeze and the ocean was really calm. It was a long walk out on the pier for me and my sisters with memories from all of us. Afterwards we went out for breakfast and the memories continued. No one tends to believe us but we were so lucky to be raised in what can only be described as a Beaver Cleaver household. That night I slept better than I have in months and awoke feeling lighter and ready to go. My duties as executor are over and now it is time to start taking care of me.
So once again I am back.
