That stinking hurricane was the cause of my stressing and tearing a muscle. So I have been in recoup and rebuild mode since early October. Just as I was being able to get almost a full mile of constant walking each day, I was hit with a flu/cold/respiratory bug in late November. After coughing through most of Christmas celebrations, I finally gave up and set up an doctor's appointment. Good thing, too, as the night before three times I was being unable to get enough air to even cough. Turned out that was caused by a bronchial spasm. "Drop your drawers" was the command for the steroid shot in my bohunkus. It worked and only one spasm since the shot. Also, a couple of meds to deal with the excessive drainage and I think I will live.
With the weight loss programs we have been using for evaluation purposes for our DILove, we each have dropped a full clothing size. Hubby probably even a little more than that. This means we will begin 2018 already in a better state of health than at the beginning of 2017. In addition we have continued to slim down our possessions, too. More trips to the Salvation Army are in the near future.
As for the unfinished projects from 2017, I want to get those wound up by March. Let me see if I can remember what they are. Oh, yes, scanning all the photos and documents for two families. Then compiling a book of our mother's letters to the grandparents during WWII. Finish the slide show of our trip to France for easy sharing with our cousin who will be coming in March. Thus the deadline of March.
There is one more big adventure on the horizon for 2018. Son would like to see us purchase a lake house with him. It would be listed on HomeAway and hopefully pay for itself by the time I die. Ha! That would be a decent thing to leave our half for him. DIL has some ideas on the color scheme. Her dad is retiring, selling his home and relocating to Costa Rica! I know, Costa Rica. Anyway, a lot of the furniture for the lake house will come from him. And a few things we have been holding onto with this in mind. Oh, well. A new adventure for a couple of retirees.
We may join the Baca center. There are activities and some volunteer opportunities. The kids are encouraging us to get out among the people. I still need some more convincing on this as I do love
Have a great weekend to all out there.
