MAKING TIME......................................................

"There is a time in your life for everything~~but not everything all of the time."

It seems as though when I take a little trip...I always spend some time reflecting about my life and the improvements I hope to make when returning home.


All of us have the same 24 hours in each day and yet it seems as though I often fill mine with trivia and just "puttering" around the house.  I set little goals for myself and let other things get in the way.  


This year I have turned 68 and have vowed to pursue some of the goals I have long neglected.   These goals are really fairly simple, actually....but it is just a matter of MAKING TIME.  I want to begin a solid exercise program, as I am having some knee issues and know this will improve my overall health.  I want to get more involved in being creative.  It seems as though I have just let that part of me disappear.  I want to spend more time with friends getting out of the house for lunch or just visiting.  My diet could use a little overhaul...so I plan on attempting to make this happen.  

My little list really is not very long...but I need to MAKE TIME BEFORE I RUN OUT OF TIME!!


Just sayin'
from me to you..

THIS LAST CHANGE HAS TAKEN THE "STUFFIN" OUT OF ME.............






I have not been in the blogging world for quite some time now.  I have missed it and I have occasionally visited various friends here.  It does seem that this summer's events have really put a damper on who I normally am.  

As most of you know....we moved in late July....a downsize which we love..but was SO VERY MUCH WORK.  Unpacked in about 5 weeks.  I mean everything...pictures on the walls everything organized for living.

THEN....on August 26th my wonderful soulmate had some very serious colon surgery.  We are not "spring chickens" any longer so recovery has been a slow process for him.  And, it seems, for me also.  LOL LOL

Perhaps there is a tad bit of depression going on....but I plan on snapping out of it and getting back with the business of life.

Speaking of which.....tomorrow is my birthday.  Nothing big planned, although we are going to be going on a little trip for a week or so with our traveling friends.  Looking forward to that.  I know this post is all about me and an update here...but it seems like I have been gone so long I just need a good "kick in the pants" to get back to this business of blogging.

Stay well sweet friends,

Jo
