Life is a Changing
Sunday, March 04, 2012
We are still trying to adjust to our new normal. It seems strange still to not have to get up every morning and go to check on dad and not make sure I have his dinner ready for him at 5 every nite. I think having DH in treatment during the initial time helped me get thru all of this but now we don't have that to go to either.
I am learning to relax and do things that I never had time for. I took Saturday off and had a girl's day out and enjoyed going to the beach. I haven't been to the ocean since we moved down here full time and in April that will be 7 years!!! It wasn't an ideal beach day as it was quite windy but it was really hot so think that saved us from getting burnt.
We are planning our first rv trip-plan to go out mid month after we get thru all the dr appointments. It is going to be a learning experience getting used to this one but we are going to have a lot of fun doing it.
DH has taken back to walking. My friend, Vicky's husband, and he go every morning. They both go to the same cardiologist and he told them both to get up and get moving!! Glad they can get out there and do it together. I am continuing to go to the gym. My workout partner hasn't been going for a couple of weeks, but I went on without her. She is a snowbird so will be gone north in a couple of months anyhow.
Abbie is going in to the groomer on Tuesday and thinking she is going to get cut a lot shorter as I worry if we are camping her long hair will pick up a lot of "stuff". Right now it isn't bad as she isn't out in any tall grass so it isn't hard to keep her brushed out but who knows what we will encounter so want to see how it works if we cut her shorter. Wonder what she will think, she has never had short hair since she was a puppy!
