Holy cow, I can’t believe it has been so long since I wrote anything substantial for my blog. Winter has been a down time for me. Nothing to report on the property other than snow, which I didn’t get to see. We were scheduled to head up last weekend, but that didn’t happen after all…
So what has been happening? I have several blog posts scheduled that didn’t make it to completion so be expecting those shortly.
In March I became a new Oma (grandma) AND a mother-in-law!! That is my most exciting news. Our eldest daughter had her first son (our first grandchild) on March 23rd. I spent alot of time planning baby reveal party, baby shower, going baby stuff shopping, and generally being excited about the new baby. His name is Tyler and mom and dad are doing wonderfully.
During my absence from the blog, I struggled with my hypothyroid because, for a couple of months, I battled with remembering to take me pill, and the downward spiral that created with my energy, enthusiasm, and overall happiness during that time. Got a new schedule going last month, and wow what a difference again!
Also, I recently became aware of free women’s (Krav Maga) self defense classes just 10 minutes from my house, so I have been VERY active with that. Thanks to getting my pill schedule normalized, I had the energy and ambition to actual go to classes. You will be seeing more posts from me about that as well. I believe learning self defense and being fit is a large part of being prepared and self reliant, just didn’t have the funds for a gym (and the aforementioned ambition). Even my youngest daughter is loving the training. This was a great find. I discovered I really like boxing because of it, too.
I am enjoying the class so much, my son bought me “Bob” for mother’s day.
We did some camping, my daughter won a couple wrestling tournaments, I’m learning to sew, and I sprained my ankle so bad back in March that it is still not fully serviceable today.
That about does it for catching up… Please let me know how your winter went in the comments below!
