I can't believe how long it's been since I've been on here, almost as much as I can't believe I'm logging on here now! I'm not flattering myself to think that anyone has been stopping by, waiting for my next post with great anticipation, but I feel bad for not keeping up with it for myself.
I have been posting on myfitnesspal, and that's been gratifying. Part of me feels really proud how big a chunk of my mindset has become about supporting other people who are trying to get healthy, and the other part of me would like to think about other things. But the reality of it all is that my health and wellness have become a priority. It's a big shift to go from thinking about everyone else all of the time to thinking about keeping true to my promise to me.
So, I'm sitting here on our sofa...Steinvic is doing his weekly travels, and I came straight home, got the laundry going, rode the bike for an hour, took out the trash, weedwhacked the backyard area, took a shower...and now a certain puppy is sitting next to me on the sofa with a ridiculously large rawhide bone, courtesy of his Grandma and Grandpa.
We've been busy with friends lately, and that is new to me. We've crossed the boundaries of lovely bar acquaintences with a few people, and had a fun night of lawn games the other weekend. This past weekend, we went to a wedding of two of our good pals and met a couple so similar in dispostion and personality to us, it was uncanny. As grounded as Steinvic has been and always will be in Columbus, we're making a nice life here and it's really neat.
I spent so many years going from place to place, never really making connections, never really touching down. And now it seems okay to open up and do the things that "normal people" do. It's natural for Steinvic. For me, it's fascinating and exciting.
So, I'm good. Better than good. And...dare I say...I deserve this?
