Busy, busy.

Two pieces of good news for today! The first is Lynn finally made it to her mom's last night after her unexpected stay over in Unity, SK, and the second is I got home from the store last night and found the fence done! Brian and his guys have to come back when the wheels … Continue reading Busy, busy.

a break in the fighting

I was up and out early to take a friend to an appointment in Coronation, then after that it was taking laundry over to B's place since our washer is still not working. Hopefully it'll be fixed early next week, because this is getting annoying. You don't realize how much you use something until it … Continue reading a break in the fighting

Newton’s law, staying in motion, and staying accountable.

Yesterday was a record breaking day for me. It was the first day that I logged over 20,000 steps. By the end of the day I definitely felt every step. I was tired.

I am not where I wanted to be, but I’m finding my passion again.

A pretty light day today. I had an appointment at the weight loss clinic in our medical practise today, and found out that I have lost 6 pounds of fat and gained a pound and a half of muscle in the last eight weeks. Considering I feel like I plateaued, that is still some significant … Continue reading I am not where I wanted to be, but I’m finding my passion again.

July 1, a retrospective on the first six months of 2019.

At the half way point of the year, I find myself reflecting on the trials our family has faced. Losing Brenda in February, my subsequent hospital admission in March, some changes at the work, and the loss of friends causing me to attend more funerals this than I have been at in the last 10 … Continue reading July 1, a retrospective on the first six months of 2019.
