In honor of the great Sea Monkey inventor and the many aquarium sets I received when I was growing up from my mom. I have started a Sea Monkey kit at my desk. Right now I am just in the water purifying stage and I am sure that this does not really qualify for bucket list, but it really is part of living in the past which is also a huge dynamic of bucket list creation. So my list includes future activities and dreams I have never done, and also things from long ago that made me happy, that is definitely worth reliving. Hail to the monkeys! I found some old ads. Reminded me of the old days.
I woke up this morning - always an indication that the day may hold some promise.
This wake up felt different than all of the other mornings I have had.
It was on this day 50 years ago – August 27-1966 – that the staff at the hospital greeted my arrival.
Life has been full of peaks and valleys over the years. Like most people, I’ve been to the top and also hit rock bottom.
I know the feeling of getting promotions and bonuses, and I know the feeling of not eating for three days because I didn’t have enough money for food.
I have enjoyed the beauty of seeing all 4 of my children born, and the stress of being laid off three times, Divorced, moving around, loss. I LOVE FINDING THE HAPPINESS ...I am on a constant search for it.
Mostly, I’ve wondered if I would ever hit forty – let alone fifty – and overcoming a number of obstacles to actually make it to this day.
The ups and downs in my life have continued , but through even the worst times, my kids have been an inspiration to keep trying for a better life.
The morning of my 50th birthday my daughter Emily and I ran the 5k Color Run. What a beautiful day, filled with happiness. Also some photo's from my awesome co workers that took time to decorate my cubicle.
2 More days until the Color Run and soon after heading to the Harvest Moon Run. Today is my daughter's 15th birthday. We have been spending more time getting fit and keeping busy. So many happy memories to make! Watch for the Color Run photo's over the weekend. I am sure it is going to be amazing!
Ready to run in the most beautiful happy 5k I could find. A day of celebration as I am turning 50 on this day! I will post photo's soon!
After finishing the 25 year quest of following this series. I am excited to attend and be a part of the Wilder Days and Little House on the Prairie. I am headed north in September to experience the covered wagon living and to even get a change to meet some of the beautiful people that played on this show. So excited!
Its going down...for real...#bucketlist my evening with Bret Michaels is starting ♡ I only waited 25 years :)
Just when you think you cannot do it...you wake up and get it done. Em has been running more and we are going to a 5K in two weeks and what better way to get ready for it than to do a run that is twice as long. The hills in our area and terrain made it a bit of a challenge for me, but it was beautiful and enjoyable. We had a wonderful time together and now it is on to the next one!
