My 365...

Good day today!  I had a nice afternoon with Jack and Blake.  Casey had not been feeling well, so he stayed home.  I had some doctor's visits, then we tried out a new Chinese Buffet in town.

The doctors say I am doing great, and I have to agree.  I was telling my Rheumatologist that I have not felt this good in years!  She said many of her patients around the age of 50 report a new found energy because they stop caring so much about the little things.

I have learned to let go of a lot of garbage that bothers me.  I have not become a complete pushover like I used to be, over worrying about my children and their lives.  If I don't like something or someone, I don't fuss about it.  They simply cease to be a problem for me.  Sort of just wiggle my nose and they disappear.  Don't step on my toes and I won't step on yours.  It really is as easy as that.  :)

The exercise has helped too.  The more I get out and walk, the more I want to get out and walk, and it feels great.  In the process I managed to lose 20 pounds as well, which is always a good thing.  It helps to live in a beautiful area with lots of great places to explore too.  I keep waiting for the RA hammer to come down on me but so far so good.  I can still move, and quite well thank you very much!  At this rate I am going to be one hot gramma for Spring.  Woot!

Tonight we enjoyed another walk through the hills.  It was very chilly, but as long as I kept moving, I did not feel it as much.  I love it!

My photos of the day...

Waiting for the doctor is not so boring with a view like this one...
Good yummy "all you can eat" buffet!  Jack and the boys love that. Blake and his "rosy" cheeks, just like big brother Garrett.  :)
 Another adventure through the neighborhood.
