What’s going on?
It’s been awhile, and as usual life moves at lightening speed. Recently, my boy turned 9 years old. I know. I am equal points proud of my little man, and frankly, a little unhinged that the next birthday is a big one for him. My little boy, not so little anymore…
Yeah, everyone talks about how fast time moves along, but I swear I can’t tell you where this year is going. I’ve been busy continuing on my life improvement journey. It’s going really well. I had a review of blood work and my cholesterol is normal! for the first time in my life. I am still losing weight, which is awesome. I am, however, still losing my hair (boo) and dealing with moderate to OMG pain! muscle and joint issues (for which I have a specialist appointment in June). So, good news/bad news I guess, but I’m just happy to put my health first. I’ll get there one step at a time.
Summer is looming, oh heck, it’s here I guess. The boy finishes 3rd grade on the 20th of June. We joined a swim club, once again (and maybe taking advantage of it more frequently when I’m not working). I joined a CSA (Co-Op) at an organic farm this year. First time doing this, and I am all kinds of excited. Will post some pictures of my bounty over the summer. As long a we don’t have a drought here in the Northeast, I should be very happily stocked with veggies.
Vacation cannot come soon enough. Summer means our annual road trip down south to Hilton Head Island, SC. I am looking forward to my feet in the sand. My chair is waiting…
Lastly, it finally dawned on me why I find it so hard to blog here, and the reason came quite clear to me in the shower this morning (whaat? I do my best thinking in the shower)... I hate this platform I am on. I am going to finally reinvent and renovate this place and move it to WordPress. I have a couple other places I’ve been writing, but it only seems like I am cheating on my first love, which is BagMomma and the years of history I have here. So, I am consolidating, shutting the doors on extraneous blogs and coming home (here)… although here will be “there” soon. Dresden, are you reading? I may need a line on some technical help to accomplish what I want to do. 🙂 For those of you that are still hanging in, thank you. I am still here and will continue to be, even more.
The title of this post? I heard this “Grease” classic while in line at a store a couple days ago, and I can. not. get it out of my head. Danny and Sandy on the brain…. my son thinks I am crazy as I have sang the complete song from end to end while sliding in the kitchen. He has not seen the movie “Grease” yet, even though I bet I can find it in five seconds on any cable channel right now. I’m thinking I will need to bust out the soundtrack at least so he knows I am not making this sh!t up. If you could only see the perplexed look on his face when I burst into my medley… in 1978 I WANTED to be Sandy SO BAD… of course that was when Travolta was… ummmm… more appealing.
