New Adventures Arising

C has officially accepted the offer to work at the new position he was offered recently. Given the economy, it is a bit of a gamble to leave the safe haven of his current job of the past ten years, however, we both feel good about it and some wise advisors have counseled that this would be an excellent career move for him. How often does one get the opportunity to run the largest facility in the state at his age? It will be a lot of work, but a great platform for growth and learning. He won't start for at least another month because he needs some time to wrap up loose ends and hopefully fit in a little break in between positions for a motorcycle ride, which brings me to my next "adventure."

After spending most of the day yesterday, and some time earlier this week to finish our taxes, I submitted them around midnight last night. I merrily told C that I had a specific plan for part of our refund. C has needed some new boots for riding and leathers for safety, so I told him we would first purchase those items for him. Second, I would get my long-awaited dining table! On Tuesday, C came home early, so we drove to look at the new facility he would run, and also visited the furniture store. We both fell in love with a specific set, and every morning I can visualize it in our breakfast nook.

Finally, my own little adventure - I finally broke through to the 130s on the scale. My self-denial is paying off, because this last week has certainly not been stupendous for workouts. I only fit in two workouts rather than four. But the exciting part is not really the scale, it is the fact that my hips finally fit comfortably into the pant size I am shooting for. Yippee! I am super motivated to keep going.

I also have the great opportunity to teach our little six- and seven-year olds at Church. We have a class of 10, and I am eager to make the most of this opportunity to both teach and learn from them. My last such adventure involved twelve 7- to 8-year olds and when I had to leave, we all were sad to part. We had many adventures together, learning and growing. Upward and onward!
