Has anyone else had trouble with Blogger not accepting the layout of your posts? I've been having problems for weeks now. In fact, I'm typing this in the HTML mode in an effort to avert the problem. We'll see if it works!
My sister had her baby a week ago yesterday. It was a big "all of a sudden" rush starting at 5:30 AM and ending a short 2 hours later! I was racing up the interstate to meet them at the hospital so I could take care of their 7yo daughter. Big excitement! Things are settling down to "normal" for me and "new normal" for them. He's beautiful and healthy and enthusiastically welcomed by all!
Hence the reason THIS week's Res. Tues. is late!
Area 1: Weight
Up two pounds this week.
Area 2: Family
A question I have been pondering for the last few days: If married, what is the MOST important earthly relationship? My answer: the relationship I have with my husband. No one else is affected in the same way as the husband and wife by one another. Even children. They grow up and move out. Since that relationship IS the most important earthly one in my life, I have started to pay a lot more attention in this area. This attention has turned up some needs for fine-tuning in me. I've just scratched the surface, apparently. This after 25 years of marriage!
Area 3: Schedule
The new baby threw everyone's schedule off, including mine LOL! That's a good kind of upheaval and it was a lot of fun having a "daughter" for a couple of days. Flexibility is important--so is continuity. Balance in everything.
Area 4: Chassis Maintenance
Now that the weather is slowly getting better, I've added 20 minute walks, 4 days a week. It feels so good to get out in the open. Since it's only 20 minutes and I live practically at the North Pole, I do NOT put on sunscreen. I've read that the skin needs 20-30 minutes of sun exposure to help increase the vitamin D. The rest of the time I try to just stay out of the sun rather than slather on sunscreen. My limited reading has not been very positive about the pros vs. cons on sunscreen.
Area 5: Debt
Things have picked up in this area! We did a switch over to 0% cards and we're going to apply the saved interest to the balances. I tried to do this six months ago and no one was offering. Things have changed and we've taken advantage!
Area 6: Garden
My camera is acting up, so I don't have pictures of my seedlings. Most are coming up, but there are some that I think I overwatered and they drowned. Since I don't have pictures, I thought I'd add this video of a time-lapse of a radish seed sprouting. We thought it was pretty cool.
