Spending some time...

The last week or so has been so hellish.  I hate moving...with that said, I must admit I'm not 100% done yet.  The next time I move, I swear I won't have as much stuff.  A goal that I've chosen to work on is to live with less.  Who needs three bottles of hair spray or so many t-shirts it's unreal.  I'm going to spend this next year downsizing because come this time in 12 months, I will be combining the belongings of three people in a house.  Wow, sometimes I feel like the idea of having a complete household is scary.  It's like having a really big job and not sure how to do it.  But, with every one's help, I'm sure our lives will go on smoothly.

Yesterday, the beau and I went to Lake Murray Dam to fight the heat and the ants.  Needless to say we didn't last long, lol!!
Toot and ants don't mix

That's him!!! 
Fat toot, but not for long!!
Tried to get a panoramic sweep, my hand is not so steady!
Looking at that picture reminds me that I have a ton of work to do.  I'm going to have to commit myself to starting a home gym now, when ladybug comes I may not have time to get to the gym always.  The lake was beautiful, a tad hot.  I wish we could go out on a boat and rip the water up.  I should have taken a picture of the breath-taking houses on the other side.  Gorgeous!  I recently moved into another apartment and I hope a house in on our horizon, not like the million dollar homes on Lake Murray, just something comfy for our little family.

Have a peachy day!!!

A letter to myself...

Dear Mitzi,

It's been a crazy year, but it's over!!!  No more fear, no more pain, no more holding back!  This is your year to shine, grow and flourish!  I know best above all people that it was quite difficult and it's hard to let go of a crutch that's been holding you up for so long.  I know you can do it.  You never thought that you would endure an illness such as what you've been through.  I know you've been told how lucky you are and in fact you are a very lucky woman.  I admire what you've been through and what you're about to do.

Don't be afraid, I know it's going to be hard to take this year on and make positive changes in your life; but trust me, I'm here for you every step of the way.  I want you to find confidence in knowing that it's never coming back - you're free!!!  Everything that has been leaning heavy on your heart and body are gone and you can fly without it.  You can fly higher than you've flown before, enjoy your freedom and live in every moment.  When I think about who you want to be, I get a little teary eyed because I see it for you.  I see the woman standing at the end of the tunnel.  After being in the dark so long, she is in the light and waiting for you to embrace her, love her and care for her. 

No sickness, no pain, no excuses to hold you back!!!  Sooo, what are you gonna do first?  The world is open to you, wide open.  I'm honored that you chose me to go along with you on this journey.  I promise to support you, encourage you, challenge you to think differently, comfort you, appreciate you, and most of all LOVE you.  I'm there for you, no matter what.  I will never lie to you to make you feel better or give you a false sense of security.  I will never tell you that you CAN'T do something.  I will never give up on you and I will NEVER stop believing in you.

All my love,
