Making it Happen

2013 was a great year:

I hit my goal weight (for a hot minute).
We hiked in Shenandoah National Park and on the Appalachian Trail.
We hiked in Colorado.
We hiked the Inca Trail in Peru to Macchu Picchu.
We took a river cruise down the Rhine River through The Netherlands, Germany, and France.

And that was great, but 2014 is going to be EPIC!!

I am going to set a goal of 124 pounds, for a total loss of 60 pounds.

I am going to stay active in team challenges.

I am going to set a goal of six fitness classes per week, and three half marathons in 2014.

We are going to travel west and do a lot more hiking in the Dakotas, Utah, and Colorado.

We are going to plan another Fall hiking trip -- perhaps Bhutan, or Nepal...?

Life is exciting! Every day is a gift!

My mom has told me that her parents never wanted her but also her grandfather spoiled her. I have done what Heather has said a long time ago, I have removed the fact that she is my mom and I look at her wiith sad eyes. Said because she is choosing to miss so much love and happiness and great relationships in her life. But with that being said, THIS IS WHAT SHE HAS CHOSEN! I can't change that nor will I ever. IT is completely her loss.

I just know that each time I am around her as frustrated and hurt as I get, I also know that I am being a better mom and the kind of mom that I have always wished she could have chosen to be. Granted, I am completely far from perfect BUT my children all know that I absolutely love them and wanted them.

At one point, a friend just simply gave me a hug!! She could see the frustration in my eyes and watched how my mom was being!

All I can say fellow Pink Pirate, our experiences has made us become better moms!

We can actually see the tops of the Petronus Towers from our hotel room - haven't gone over there yet. Might skip it - I get vertigo with heights!
