March already?

I just had a mini heart attack- I thought I missed my blog-anniversary!  So I had to go back and check- its not until April 1st.  Of course there will be much celebration on that day as I will have kept up with something for a whole year!  That's not to say I have been a perfect little blogger- but "I'm gettin' there".  (I always think of that one scene in Dazed and Confused when I hear that term "gettin' there".)  I know- I totally sucked last month.  It was just a bad month for me.  The big factor that made me down in the dumps was the damned cold weather.  I just can't move when it is cold out.  I probably have Seasonal Affective(ed?) Disorder (almost typed discorder-maybe I have that too.)  I should buy one of those fancy lightbulbs that give the good sun rays I miss when it is cloudy out.  Of course the fact that I am sharing a car with Hubby doesn't help.  I just don't want to get out and walk when it is cold out!

I had a health scare this last week.  I went to see the doc today- he says I am ok- big relief.  I won't go into detail but I was freaking out thinking I might have cancer or something terrible like that.  I know or know of too many people that are in my age range that are battling cancer- and some who didn't make it.  Talk about putting a little perspective in my life.  I have a new neighbor- she just went through a big ordeal where they took out a bunch of tumors that turned out to be benign.  But at first they told her they were cancerous and she really had a big scare.  I can only imagine. 
Sooo- I have come to the conclusion that I have not been taking good care of myself.  This was the big boost I needed to motivate myself to eat better and exercise.  Motivation is awesome and so hard to come by for me.  I have sworn off sweets until June.  So far so good!  I'll let you know when I make it to June! 

What else?  Well I have been trying to catch up on all the blogs I follow- no easy task I tell you!  But reading "my" blogs makes me happy!  So I think I will keep it up.  I have been finding more and more military spouse blogs.  I love that we have this "sisterhood" that I am a part of.  I saw some of them mentioned in Military Spouse Magazine today as well.  That is awesome.

Oh- sign-ups have started for youth baseball and softball.  We are excited to watch the kids play.  Hopefully Hubby will get to see some games this year- last year he missed them all. :(

I know "March Madness" has to do with basketball- but for me it is the crazy lusting for warm spring weather that drives me wild!

From my yard last year in Washington I miss my tulips...

Ok ok, I confess.  Facebook took over my life.  I have quit cold turkey- no more games.  Really- what did they do for me but suck my life awayNow I have more time to blog!

I must sign off here- Sister is making hamburger helper for dinner.  I know- that is not the ultimate healthy meal- but it was her request...  (we'll add a big salad.)



  1. A lot of people are letting facebook get a hold of them. It is not for me. I pretty much have been commenting on people who leave me a comment. I don't like it like that, but it is the only way that I can keep up.

    I am glad that your scare was only a scare.

  2. Thanks Otin- I am glad too!
    Yeah I will still get emails from people who contact me on my profile on Facebook- so I can still stay in contact that way. I just don't have time to look through everything to catch up. My good friends talk to me directly anyway. :)
    I never watch Dr. Phil- but one day he had a lady on who was obsessed with FB- especially Farmville. The kids and I cracked up- she was a total loon! People like that make me feel better about myself. *grin*

  3. I've given up Facebook unless it's absolutely necessary.

    But I have friends that I swear are always on. ALWAYS! Amazing.
    Your tulips in Washing ton looked lovely. Makes me yearn for spring....although looking out my window presently, we've still 2 feet of snow on the ground. I don't think we'll be havin' ourselves a warm St. Pats this year.

  4. Nancy- I feel for you and all my friends getting hit with snow storm after snow storm. We had a second snow fall here- but it doesn't even stick on the road so I can't complain (although I still did a little.) I can't wait for spring- I won't see my tulips pop up but at least there are the cherry trees here...

  5. I am SO glad you got a clean bill of health from the doc! Whew!!!!

    I am soooo ready for the cherry blossoms! It's going to be fantastic (I hope!) Maybe we can swing up to Ueno Park while the blossoms are at their peak! :oD

  6. That sounds like a plan! Yipee! :)


Talk to me!
