two more days

Wednesday, May 29th
How does time go so slowly and quickly at the same time?!?
Twenty-nine days into this birthday season with only two to go...bittersweet!
Today's gifts...
Grass (one day no grass, the next...presto!! We have a yard!) Love it already...but I haven't had to do anything to it yet. :)
Crickets and frogs (they are happily chirping and croaking themselves into my heart.)
Fishing with my sister and niece (very thankful the bass were hungry today!)
Playing Uno with the much fun!
Last, but not least, I was able to check off something on my to-do list of things before I leave. Success is due to my wonderful sister taking the kids to eat ice cream and a few other things that an aunt does for her nephews that her sister won' go to the candy store in town...while I shop for window coverings. It amazes me how some things one dreads end up being not so bad afterall.


  1. Hi Janet...thanks for the comment on my blog. I haven't read blogs in awhile, so I read several of your posts this morning. I guess you had a birthday I don't know when your actual birthday was...but HAPPY BIRTHDAY Janet Rose. I hope you will have a good year ahead.

    I see also that you have just moved! Where have you moved. You live in Georgia right? Moving is bittersweet indeed. Like you, I sat and remembered good times and bad when we were leaving our last home 6 years ago. We had so many memories after 20 years in one home! But as you said, when the family pictures come down and everything is packed up it just seems like an empty house!

    Anyway I wish you well in your new surroundings Janet girl!

    Love, Linda

  2. Thank you, Linda! My birthday was today and it was wonderful! The house is almost complete and we will {hopefully} move in first of July.

it's not about me

I reminded myself of this recently.
It's not about me at all, this wellness journey I am on to a healhier version of myself.
Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
