Anniversary Weekend!

This past weekend Hubby and I ran away for a few day. It was our anniversary. Thirty three years of wedding bliss. Well mostly. We decided to do what we do best for our special weekend and went boating, fishing and swimming. We learned early on in this marriage that we are water people. Give us a lake and we are happy people. We have lots of options for local lakes but when we get the chance we enjoy visiting lakes that are further to the south from us. Hubby rented a little cabin and I mean little. Like all one room except the bathroom. It was perfect though. We slept in, ate a little too much and had too much sun. But would do it all over again. As we were driving home we made plans for our next lake adventure and booked a cabin even further south to yet another beautiful lake.

Upon arriving home reality hit and as I sit here the to do list is growing. Can we just rewind the past few days and stay there for like a month?!?

So many changes...........

It has been over a month now that I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes. I did not take this news very well and needed a while to let that soak in...........then I came out fighting.........after a few weeks of crying.
I am not taking this news sitting down. I will fight this and have been developing a plan of eating and exercising to reverse this diagnosis. I am a work in progress. I need to tell myself everyday that this is a journey not a marathon. I am down 11 pounds in 5 weeks and feel amazing.

In other news...my youngest son Drew went back to work TODAY! Yay, after almost a year off of work do to MRSA in his blood and then heart surgery in January. I thank GOD everyday for how far he has come. I am so grateful. At 27, with a wife and two beautiful kids, they have come along way.

And yet in other news. Oldest son Devin moved back home. Still going through a divorce that is not final yet. I just hate divorce. I know it is as common as water now but I would give anything if he was not going through this. I know in the end he will make a beautiful life for him and his son.

This day finds us sliding into another weekend. More organizing and purging. I have decided I will never be done, not really.

Where did May go?

Time is flying by....

Still purging and organizing every room, every drawer, every closet.

Moved to the outside this weekend and cleaned up and planted flowers. Hubby planted the garden. With so much raing though I hope it doesn't float away.

Feeling so good about getting everything done. Love the feeling of always moving forward.
