I have not written a blog in a while and thought I probably should.
So much has happened since Mother `s day. ( That was the last blog!)
My mother in law is now living here in Canada. She moved over permanently at the end of May.
I have quit my cleaning job as of July 31 and look forward to having my Saturdays back so that I can concentrate on family time. It means a loss in income, but I am sending out my resume in order to make up the money in writing jobs! ( Keep your fingers crossed for me and if you are a prayer person, pray!)
I am still without a car which has its challenges, especially in the Summer when the kids are home and want to go places.
A couple of weeks ago my hard drive not only crashed, but DIED! So there is another challenge I am dealing with. I am using a netbook at the moment, but it is what my son uses for school and it is a google netbook so it does not support windows operating systems.
That poses a whole lot of trouble too!
I am working around all these issues!
ON the exercise front, this week I will be biking at least 30 minutes a day to get DD to and from the bus pick up point for camp. If not cycing then walking. :-)
My doctor wants me to go for physio to sort out my pain in my legs from hip flex-or stuff caused by misalignment of the hips, but we do not have any health benefits as yet. We are working on that! Once we get benefits and I get the physio to correct things then I will be allowed to do more exercise.
( I want to get back to running and swimming)
Here is a pic from the opening event of my Portraits of Giving event:
( apologies if it is sideways)
The book I wrote to go with the photography exhibit is NOW available and contains the 10 biographies from this year`s recipients.
We have been doing a lot of de-cluttering and spring cleaning around the house! So I have been a busy bee!
I have not been eating on The Plan, as such, but I know which foods to avoid to manage the bloat. I think my weight is stable, but I would like to get back on THE PLAN to lose another 10 pounds. I just did not want to do it in a hurry...from experience I know that if I lose too much weight in one chunk then my body retaliates and puts it back on and then some....So I wanted to stabilize before losing the next few pounds.
Maybe once things calm down around here I can concentrate on getting back on THE PLAN and getting to my next goal! ( come on ladies, talk me into it! ;-))
