Life has become complicated. I hate that. I am trying to do too many things in too little time. Here is a brief update of my fascinating life.

1. Yoga is great. I have identified my stiff areas. Turns out my upper body is fairly limber and my hips are practically set in stone. I am working on this. We had seven people at the last class. Yoga Jan and I were so pleased as it was just us a few weeks ago. Having to move the pews before each class is a pain in the...lower back.

2. Went back on my food plan. I am tired of feeling like hell as well as being fatter. Sugar is my enemy. Why can't I remember that?

3. Have appointments for physical and mammo. This is a major deal for me.

4. Mark may run for office. I am trying to decide if I can cope with all of the crap that goes with the decision.

5. I have turned some sort of corner self esteem wise. I am what I am and you either like me or not. Makes me no mind. I like me. I am a hoot.

6. Attended a dinner of wealthy retirees (golfers) on the Fourth. There were 400 of us in the RV Resort "Barn." Was like watching very well dressed tan people dancing on the deck of the Titanic. Tres weird.

7. Was in the parade in one of the little burgs up here. Had a grand time.

8. Moll Dogs is terrified of fireworks and thunder. We have had fire works and storms for a week. She has been sleeping in the bathtub with a radio going. I hate pretentious NPR but it is all I can pick up other than country and western. So I have been listening along with her. Ugh.

9. We were given an old lawn tractor. It runs and saws off the grass. I spent my summers mowing lawns as a kid. Turns out I can still whiz around on a tractor. Sure beats the electric push mower.

10. Figured out my CA conundrum. In the past all my "fun" trips to the Land of OZ were filled with fear and misery. No wonder my body did not want to go. Has taken my brain a little while to put the pieces together.

11. Haven't watched the tube for a while. I am busy during the day and am sitting out on the deck feeding the mosquitoes of an evening. Am reading about France in the thirties. A much needed relief from self help stuff.

12. Have signed up to do way to much stuff at church. This is coming to an end. I am quitting committees.

That's all folks. I will be doing catch up reading later when I get this darn policy for the church Stewardship Committee done. I used to get paid for writing policies and procedures. I loved it. Turns out I don't love it no more. Well I better get cracking, I have to present it at the Council mtg. tonight.

Hosta la veesta Babies. Bea

glad to have all the catch up - had been wondering what you were up to - did you sleep IN the tub with the dog? Just trying to picture the scene.

I think you're a hoot too.

You sound like you have a skip in your step, Bea. And yet still slightly irreverent. Both are great signs. I've found reading less self-help actually equals more self-help - so keep it up. France is an excellent mind trip.

Can you turn your computer on to a radio station so you can have a variety? Like Pandora?

I think life sounds fun and exciting and yes, it could be stressful but it beats sleeping in bed all day.

You are very fun and I love your sense of humor and writing. I can totally see the great landlocked version of the Titantic. All you needed was an orchestra playing, "Nearer My God to Thee."

So much fun to read you...I miss having you around even after only having you around for a few hours! ;-) You rock. :-) And I'm happy you're feeling better. :-)

Helen said...

P.S. I'm all for First Lady You. :-)

You are definitely a hoot and I love reading you, dear Bea. Good for you for making the medical appts - it's hard to do but definitely a big deal. Congrats on the Yoga :)

Hey, are you close the wyoming town that got hit by a tornado??
(hope not). I've been thinking of you!
