chris's garden

I love to garden, and am out side on most days when I am not working, in it. I HATE winter!!! LOL

I also need to get my self back on track. some days I'm pretty good other days not so. I have some physical issues, but I am not in pain (thank God) so I am careful of what I can do, mostly low impact things are fine. So there are some things I will not do that cause undo stress on my body. It does not limit me for most part.

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands ...

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands yet. I look after my 80 year old mother. She is still very mobile and on her own. I work full time and part time, and am involved in various thing that keep me busy.

I am forever repairing or replacing things in my 85 year old house! I love to work with my power tools and do repairs around my house. All the doors and windows have been replaced, both baths have been replaced and are fairly new. replaced all flooring. Still needs siding, and walkway replaced.

So now I need to redo this body! So that it will serve me well, for many more years. I have been at it for awhile. I am determined, sometimes just not motivated! I need to do this, for me, because I AM worth it.

Steady job is definitely the preferred solution. I was hoping for an option of a steady job that would allow me to play, too, but that hasn't materialized.

Hi Chris--thanks for dropping by my 'muscle-y women' blog. And I love their hats--talking about lifting, some of them are pretty big, lol. Take care and hope you're feeling better.
