Well, well where has the time gone? I’m sure you all thought I had fallen off the face of the earth! Not quite but a lot sure has happened since my last post. The passing of my stepmother, followed shortly by the passing of my father after moving him back to Maine, then the passing of my brother. Needless to say it’s been a sucky past 3 or 4 years – but a lot of good has happened too!
We bought a new cottage on the lake in August of this year, sold our old one in September of this year and are currently remodeling the new one, which I can’t wait to share with you. I made a solo trip in July to Colorado, where I have never been to meet 20+ ladies that I only knew from an online sober group. I started getting sober curious in January of 2023, not because I had a problem, but because I wanted to feel healthier and happier, especially with all the deaths in the past 4 years – I certainly didn’t need alcohol adding to my depression. (more about that later)!
I changed jobs, again! Seems to be a pattern and finished my RN-BSN program in October. My love of fitness has remained and while I had gained quite a bit due to menopause, I have managed to lose some as well (more on that later as well).
I hope to get back to this page, find my passion, purpose and fulfillment in the coming year!
