Getting My Groove Back

Well, this move is finally over... and we are getting settled in at the new place.  Most of the clutter has been dealt with and we can finally get on with some kind of routine.  You would think we had moved thousands of miles, but it has actually only really been a couple of kilometers!

Yes, there are still pictures to be hung and I have a 'need to buy' list, but the kitchen is organized and that means I am interested in cooking again.  Tomorrow, a trip to Costco, and I am a happy gal!

And today... a run, finally.  YAY!  The last time I ran was on Christmas Day. Yes, I have been walking a lot over the past few weeks, but haven't gone out for a single run so today is the day. Sunday RUN DAY.  The Captain is going to the old place to clear out the storage locker and I have mapped out a shortish 3.5 km route in the new neighborhood and can barely wait to get out there!

I have my trusty Mizunos ready to go and have picked out a few Tommie Copper garments for the occasion.  It is a warmish, dry day and I am as giddy as a kid waiting for Santa Claus.

Slow and steady is my mantra.

Any big changes happening in your life right now?  Do you get excited to run when you haven't been able to for a while?

It Ain't Pretty

But I am doing it!

I have not really been interested in blogging yet this month... I haven't done anything worth talking about.  My total attention has been to co-ordinating all of the things needed to be done to get this move to our new home taken care of.

We have done the packing and moving ourselves, other than the large pieces of furniture.  A couple of guys with a big truck will be coming here Tuesday morning and taking care of that for us. I am not good at living in this chaos but doing my best to ignore deal with it.

I am feeling more stress than ever have for the past 10 or even 15 years since we first sold our home and moved onto the boat. My goodness! Life on that boat was simple... no internet, few cell phone calls, and only a few clothes and groceries to look after.   My biggest worry was having enough scunscreen on hand and getting the dog to shore when needed!  I miss it in so many ways.

But I am getting outside for lots of walks. I know that helps with the stress levels and counteracts some of the stress eating I have been doing.

It will all be over with soon enough and I do look forward to that day!

On a brighter note... we booked a March getaway to the Rockies this morning.  I think we have certainly earned it!  Till the next time...

How is January shaping up for you?
