Still walking

Im still training for the Susan G Komen 3-day. Since we are 24 weeks out we should be doing a minimum of 3 miles a day (with a couple of days off a week to rest). Saturday I did 4.5 miles just walking my neighborhood but Sunday I did a walk with another group (not my team) and we did 5 miles followed by a one hour yoga class.

I have NEVER been to a yoga class and I must tell you that anyone who says its easy has NEVER done it. I felt pretty good right afteward and most of the day yesterday but this morning ??????? Let me just say there is very little left of me that doesn't have a little bit of soreness. I think I found some muscles that my body forgot that it had.......Its too bad that I don't have a yoga studio in my neck of the woods because I really think I could add that in on one of my NON WALKING days.........and if you get a chance, try some yoga....all I can say is Wow!

Yes the weekend was busy but it was good. On Saturday I did one of my training walks for the Susan G Komen - on Saturday I walked over 9 miles......pretty good for me. I am starting to look forward to these walks -as they are marks of achievement for me!

Monday night I returned to the theatre and auditioned for the Melodrama........I got a part and Im so excited! Community theatre really is one of my passions and to get back into it is a good thing for me.

Still no job on the front for the hubby - and Im beginning to think we have exhausted all of our resources but I am hopeful that SOMETHING will happen - I don't know what will happen when his benefits run out.......I guess whatever we have to do.......sometimes you just need something good to happen, ya know?

We have a busy weekend coming up so thought I would post a quick blurb. Navy girl (the new DIL) leaves for Norfolk a week from Monday to finish up all her paperwork and get her orders to go join Navy Boy in Italy. I am so happy for them. As a mom it makes me feel good to know that Navy Boy won't be off in a foreign country alone anymore.......I wish the Navy COUPLE all the joy and happiness this world has to offer.

College boy managed to pass all of his classes - with 1 b and 3 Cs - so his GPA is sorely lacking but my hope is that he will continue to improve as he starts to take classes in his major.

A dear friend of ours has a son thats 24 - he is very shy and introverted and has no focus or direction except that he is very mechanically minded and very good with his hands....we discussed schooling but our friend was in a terrible car accident a few years ago and now on top of his disability, he has been laid off - so there is not much ability to do that......Im trying to help but I have very few avenues on that line....but maybe something good will happen. God is GOOD.

My great Uncle has been battling bone cancer and is going through another round of chemo - last time it was really bad for him but now they kind of know how to treat him so I am hopeful that this round will go much better - with big prayers that this time it shrinks those tumors and makes him feel better :)

7 mile training walk tomorrow for the Susan G......still trying to raise money - Im over 1/2 way to my goal of 2300 - hopefully I can pull that together too!

Thats about it from A Day In The Life - Happy Friday everyone!

Sometimes it just a poem

Let us not worry
About the future.
Let us only do the right thing
At this moment,
Here and Now.
Let the future take care of Itself.

April 30th!

Well thats it....the oldest boy is officially married. Navy boy finally jumped off the ole single bridge. We are still having a ceremony for all us people who NEED TO HAVE A WEDDING - when they come home for Christmas in December. I am really very excited - Navy Girl-in-law is wonderful and I adore her - I am very blessed for my first daughter in law to be so exceptionally great! I just hate having to send her off to Italy - so that she AND Navy Boy are gone - but I wish I had spent my first married years living in Italy - I mean Wow!

In other news, we are refinancing our house - which is good because the lower interest rate brings our payment down. Now, if the hubby could just get a job, life would be great!

College boy is about to finish his semester at TCC it will be interesting to see what the grades are versus what they were at UNT where we pretty much FLUSHED $7K - *note to all* make sure your kids are REALLY READY for college before you send them off!

So....thats the update for now - stay tuned :)
