Good Morning to You! Can you believe we are in the second to the last week of February? Seriously, Valentine's Day was just last Thursday and I'm already thinking about putting out March decorations. The other day it dawned on me, while seeing St.Pat's decorations in blogland, that Easter is really early this year and if I wanted to put out a bit of the green, that I'd better get to it. The day after our celebration, all my Easter bunnies will appear. Yesterday I went to a local Marshall's and got some place mats and towels. I also got some green crystal goblets last summer for the table and I will be watching for items when I'm out and about.
You all know how I started out the new year going strong with the gym-well it is official, today I cancelled my membership. Why? Well, I began the new class in January and immediately started fighting a boil. Then I also got that head cold that kept me down for two weeks straight. I kept telling myself I needed to get back there but ladies, it just hasn't happened. After really pondering what to do, giving myself another month or two to get into my routine, I decided that I probably wouldn't go. I do walk about 5-6 times a week and with spring approaching, I will be bike riding too. My daughters have said I can come use their treadmills if I want. The monthly fee wasn't very much but why pay if you aren't using it?! I do need to take off about 5 pounds but hopefully if the exercise here kicks up a notch or two, it will come off. We have a long weekend away in March and I just keep finding excuses-so it is done and I feel that pressure off my back. Thank you to all the dear friends who encouraged me to go-now if you were here and I could go with you, I would.
Hunter and I will be going on a walk shortly and then I am once again heading to Social Security Administration to get my online account active. As you may recall, I have gone twice and been assured that it was taken care of. I waited a few weeks to access my account and found out I couldn't get in; then I called in and they said the office workers hadn't asked me the correct questions. So glad I decided to check this out(actually it was hubby's idea)the year before I collect; this gal wouldn't be happy if I found it out next year and was delayed getting my benefits.
Our weather has been sunny but cold and snow is in the forecast for tonight into Thursday-we'll see.
I hope you are getting out and about in your neck of the woods.
Blessings on your day!
