Up Date...Race..Daughte

Wednesday, May 08, 2019

It's been awhile since I wrote a blog. Things are moving right along. Well everything except better weather. Going on day 3 of cloudy, damp and dreary weather.

Last month we had a wonderful visit with spark friend Rhonda and her husband. Was a trill to share our farm with them. Made plans for a half marathon next February in CA and hope to meet up with two spark friends there. Such Fun!

Life with daughter has been going well. One scare when she mentioned moving in with boyfriend. I for once just kept my mouth shut. I struggled for days with emotions. By day 4 she had decided all on her own that it was a bad idea. Thank God! I did seek out counseling to deal with my own stuff. I started online counseling. Through email. 1/4 the cost and I don't have to drive anywhere. So far I really love it!

Playing and training with Dewey is going well. GiGi is even acting more spunky. Due to damp conditions not much running but still doing long walks.

Dale and I sent to Omaha and participated in our first race of the year. Was Berkshire Hathaway 5K. Besides Vegas this was the larges 5k. Walked first mile with Dale, Ran 2nd mile and then went back and walk/ran with Dale across finish line. Was very pleased with my running mile was under 13 min mile.

No part time job. I did sign up to work with 4-H.(dog training) First meeting next week.

As I sit here writing this blog I have a Robin building a nest on my front door. What a wonderful gift!

    Nice to hear so many nice happenings occurring for you and those you hold dear.

    I'm curious about the February HM in California. Will it be run in Davis? If so, perhaps, I can come cheer you on.

    That is awesome that your DD made the right choice all on her own. IT CAN BE SO COMPLICATED!

    LOVE your wreath. Sweet, sweet, sweet. And the pics of your fur babies is adorable.

    Thanks for sharing your update. Hugs and best of luck as we move forward!

    This is a wonderful progress report! And I have to say I love the co-existence with nature, exhibited by the robin's nest.

    Congrats to both you and Dale on the Berkshire-Hathaway 5K... such a fun way to enjoy a day together. emoticon

    How great that everything seems to be working now for you. I'm glad you let daughter make her own decision, because as you know anything you would of said, she would of taken as an attack against her. Good not to fuel the fire.

    Take care and I like you are waiting for the warmer weather. I know this has been one crazy Spring. Before we know it, winter will be here all over again.

    Glad to get caught up since I somehow missed knowing about Gigi and now 2 companions. Sounds like your daughter is making wise decisions instead of just doing something - is thinking it through. So cool how you have gotten so close to spark people that you actually meet them, hang out with them, and run marathons. What a awesome website this is for so many reasons. California dreaming as you train and have something to look forward to. Really nice dale is with you with so much love and support. Thanks for the update and enjoy 4h as we are never too old for trying new things! Keep young, keep moving and look forward to your next update blog
