This weekend I'm stepping back, making lists, preparing for a successful week. After retirement, buying a home moving, getting settled you'd think I'd be over joyed. My emotions have been all over the board. I love, love, love being closer to a daughter and her family. I love not going to a stressful job. I love having our own home. But starting over again isn't as easy as it used to be. I've been looking at what I did that worked before. I loved Water aerobics and there is a place here, however with my injuries from last March I'm limited not to mention Covid. With the help of my husband we've mapped out a safe walking trail to get started. I'm thankful that most days I'm able to walk. So, grocery shopping, stocking up on healthy foods in the home, moving forward. I'm going to finish this ride!

    I can identify with various parts of your journey. I had a knee injury and then a procedure that took me down just when I was losing weight and having a strong positive response. I was so sad for a while. I could not use my knee as I used to. I got physical therapy and etc, but it took over 6 months to be able to walk kind of normal. It took me much longer to be able to use my knee like normal going downstairs. I used a cane for awhile. I want you to know that I did make it and everything is back like it was before. I was down on myself, but I endured and succeeded. Just take one day at a time. You will be overwhelmed if you think too far ahead. Let your body heal and let your mind heal to allow you to take it at a pace that will heal. I always wanted to rush everything. But I was patient and learned to slow down and take one day at a time. It forced me to look at myself and enjoy my life better. I learned to deal with my DH retirement and COVID at the same time. It has been tremendously hard at times. He is not an easy person to live with at times. He had to get hobbies to keep busy. We were going to move to downsize but changed our minds emoticon . We needed the spaces to give ourselves the time to be alone when needed. I love being close to our grandkids but was a challenge when COVID happened. Life has been a challenge, but you can do it. Just take one day at a time.
