Glowing and Glistening

Did I say I loved the south?  If I remember right, I have said I love the south, many, many times.  Well today it was hot, and being a northerner once again (after moving back from living in the south) I am not used to it.  It was 95 degrees with high humidity and we wimped out.  Yes, we wimped out totally, we came home from church ate some lunch and promptly fell asleep in the air conditioning.  All four of us!  After a long summer's nap...we woke up and decided to watch a movie, Invictous if anyone wants to know (good movie by the way!).  Then ate a very late dinner, left overs from our picnic yesterday.  I needed to get a walk in, so at 9:00 p.m. we leashed up the dogs and walked for about 30 minutes. 

And that's when it started...drip, drip, drip...drip down the back...drip between the girls, drip down the forehead, drip, drip, drip...   My hair was drenched.  My shirt was wet and my arms felt clammy.  My underwear (I am still a little too heavy to call them panties yet) was sticking to me in a very uncomfortable way.  I use to say that girls glowed or glisten, well not anymore, I was sweating and I mean Sweating with a big S. Sweating like a man...  Ewwwww...

I am not going to complain about it being hot, no, I am not going to complain because before too long it will be winter once again.  But I want it noted that I will surge tomorrow on the treadmill, in the basement with the air on and I will do my strengthening exercises in front of the TV with Jillian...with the air on and close to a register which will be wide open. 

I still do love the south, but I have been away a little too long.

Life - the course of existence or sum of experiences and actions that constitute a person's existence:

Busy - Sustaining much activity

These two words and definitions define what has been going on.  Because of life and business, I have not the time to blog.  Let me catch you up to date...

I have finished the "official" biggest loser program.  Over all I have lost 32 pounds since January.  I continue to workout and eat right, as well as stay in contact with the people in the program.  I am also going to continue with the program by helping out in different capacities.

My father, father-in-law and best friend were and are very ill.  Both dads had surgery, one with a blocked bowel and the other for a gangrenous gallbladder.  My friend was diagnosed with severe IBS and thyroid cancer.  I have been taking the time to help them out/care for them/talk with doctors, nurses, specialists, etc...

I finished with the census four weeks ago only to be called back to start a new project.  I am happy for the additional income/unhappy for the time it takes away from my home and family and friends, as well as my exercise routines. 

We pulled out our micro sized lawn to put in a cottage garden.  It is beautiful, but boy did it take some time and energy to do. 

My daughter is expecting our first grandchild in December.  I am going to fly out the beginning of August to visit her.  I can't wait!!!  I am also planning a shower for her (she really doesn't want one, but what new mom could not use the blessings of needed baby things).

What a difference one year makes.  What a difference a busy life makes.
