I Should Have Chosen Yoga

As I lay in bed this morning contemplating my day, I could not decide whether to walk or to do a yoga routine.  Since I was getting out of bed a little later than usual, it was bound to be too hot to walk.  A look at the outside temperature told me it was in the high 70's... Not too cool, but not hot enough to cause heat stroke in a walking, menopausal woman.  I grabbed my hat and my walking stick and headed out.  

Have I ever told you how clumsy I am?  I will bump me head on a cabinet that has been in the same place since forever or I can trip over some dust on the floor.  Hubs usually rolls his eyes as he asks if I am all right.

This morning I was 1.5 miles into my two mile route when this huge boulder appeared out of nowhere I stumbled over my own foot.  Down I went.  ROAD RASH! 

I did not have to look around to see if anyone saw me because I was face down in the street along the curb of a fairly busy street.  Everyone in town saw me, I am sure!  One car slowed, but I'm sure that is because they were laughing so hard.

I can still laugh at myself.  Or maybe I was laughing at Hubs as he got a bit woozy taking pictures of me.  Such a light weight!

If you missed the post about why I am doing this, catch up here.  Since I have been exercising regularly, I am sleeping better, have more energy and a clearer mind.  Now if I could do something about my clumsiness...

Honey, I'm Home!

My trip back to Kansas was great.  It was so nice to see my mom, two daughters and my old friends.  After ten days, I was ready to sleep in my own bed in my own home.  I missed Hubs and he missed me. Little did I know he had been rather busy while I was off having fun.

When I left, my kitchen looked like this:

Notice the lovely plastic covering this wall?

My laundry space is in a corner of the kitchen under the blue, star filled ceiling with the lighting from a bare bulb.

More broken ceiling and bad lighting.

Hubs hired some child labor

and now my kitchen looks like this:

OMG!  I could not believe it!  
We have more work to do, so stay tuned.

PS - Is Hubs not the BEST?!
