You're good!

I usually go to the gym on Sunday morning but I stayed up too late last night and was just not ready today. I did take a brief walk (which doesn't make up for skipping the gym) so at least I got something.

My exercise consisted of trimming trees, picking fruit, planting flowers. And I juiced all of the lemons that I picked. Still have three more trees to go. Ugh!

My poor old Bobby is just so old! Poor guy is having trouble getting around at times, but I pick him up and he sleeps on my lap. I just hope that he goes peacefully, before he is suffering.

I was a very good girl this week, for food and exercise. I even got up and took a short walk around the neighborhood on Wednesday. I should have done today but I will go to the gym tomorrow!

Grateful for my family and friends but miss my cat, Kit, so much. He really got under my skin straight to my heart. I have never loved an animal more than Kit and I know unconditionally that all cats go to heaven.

Practice habits of excellence.

Can't believe 3 days of dress rehearsal done! - Still have 6 more nights in a row... which does include 3 weekend shows of "Singing in the Rain". DD's in 3 dance ensembles & I've been drafted to work on the Tech Committee (mics, sound, etc). I WAS happy to get in my steps today along w/ up & down 3 flights of stairs while doing my job!

My father-in-law had everything prepaid and arranged. It did help make things a LOT easier, especially since there was a service in 2 states as well as transfer of body to another state.

I told my DH after my aunt just passed, that I honestly don't care what they do after I'm gone! It would be whatever he & the kids want that would help them during a difficult time. -- IMO the Memorial Service is for the people left behind who need to say "good-bye".

As to what to do w/ a salesman, have the things you want to know (questions) and everything you are being offered in writing (contract) so that it is enforceable.

IKnowing what to expect beforehand really helps. And having it all set and paid for is a great idea.

Figures, Barbara, you warm up and winter arrives here. I'm going to have to do snow removal before I go to my classes today, and probably again after. And then again tomorrow.

I am not going to complain though, this has been a very very mild winter for us this year, and a little February snow won't last long.

I have a gentleman coming out this afternoon to sell me a funeral plan. Does anyone have experience with these?

My aunt had one in place when she died, and really it seemed to have made things so much easier for us, even though we overrode some of her wishes. I'm sure she's forgiven us, there were a lot of people who wanted to pay their respects and she had requested no memorial service. We had one anyway, it seemed like the right thing to do.

After a couple of weeks of being cold, it is back in the high 70's to mid-80's again. Crazy stuff.

I managed to get to the gym three times last week and I went this morning as well.

Good morning everyone!
Another exciting day in the neighborhood to accomplish something.
Jump up, it sounds like you live in a perfect location. So many activities nearby. I drive 30 minutes one way to go to the gym with a pool.
Some days it is easier to talk myself out of spending the extra gas down there.

I am so glad Ohio allows those 60+ to take classes for free at the Community Colleges - and that I have right across the street from me with a decent rec center and pool! I'm having such a good time with all the exercise classes, I haven't even looked at the education classes, but one day I'll sign up for sociology or something.

I have a doc appt tomorrow, so I'm not sure I'll make either class, but I am going to hope to make my yoga class at 11.

I have got to get myself back into shape. I have sworn this morning that I will eat carefully, and get back to a more regular gym routine.

All I can say is, even though the weather was actually decent here, I thought January would never end! If you look at a calendar, it touched 6 weeks!

Classes are in their 2nd week starting today with an aqua jog class, but I will do my usual routine this morning and practice my Tai Chi. I have a coaching session on Wednesdays and I want to look like I know what I'm doing!! LOL.

Have a great February Monday, there will only be 5 of them!
