So... So far, this September is one of the best I have had in 20 years! My dad had a massive heart attack 20 years ago this September 11th, which ended up killing him. My mom died 15 years ago on September 18th. My wedding anniversary is 24 years this September 12th. And finally, September 17th is my 50th birthday!!
I announced to my family that no matter what, I was taking back September and having it be a celebration of the love my parents gave me, the love my husband gives me and the Love God gives me everyday. I pronounced it "Kate-ember!" --I even told my staff it was our counseling center's Kate-ember!!
And so... We are having fun!! I am exercising and eating right faithfully AND so far, we have gone to the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, as well as a reenactment of the goldrush in Sacramento.
This Friday, Bob & I will be going away for 24 hours in order to celebrate our 24th anniversary!!
Next Friday, the family is having a surprise birthday party for me!! AND my great friend is flying out from Denver!!! Can't wait for her to meet the family and for us to go hiking and kayaking together!!
I feel just a little "selfish" to proclaim the month Kate-ember, but the family is having fun with it!!
Thanks for listening!! I power-walked 3 miles today!! Yeah!! I'm committed to keep walking and walking until I get to a weight where I can decide to run or not.
Oh.... The terribly sad thing is I will have to get out of Fabulous, Fit and Forty team....!!! I'll be looking at the Fun Fifties soon!!!
