I Will Thrive

Hello out there! Sorry for the disappearance...it was a busy and full week last week. We were busy getting Mom packed and moved and then getting the old house cleaned. But she is tucked into her apartment and life is good. The house sold. And now we go onto the search for a new home for her.

Now onto the Thriving Part...

J is doing well over in Japan they are keeping him very busy which helps him. And they have our pay almost completely straight. They are working on the last part so hopefully by January we should be set. Whoo hoo!

I am going to be leading First Place 4 Health starting the first week in January. I'm excited about this I think it will be fun and I think it will be a good experience for those of us participating. And I know I want to be in better health. I've decided I will be healthier at 40 than I was at 30. (For those doing math yes I've given myself a good couple of years.)

My friend S and I have decided that 2011 is our year for excitement and going out of our comfort zone. So in January we plan on taking a stripper exercise class over at Studio Rio. I think it will be a fun experience. And it is different. I can't wait. 

I've decided while he's gone...I'm going to pamper myself once a month. This (really last) month was getting my hair colored. When I was a kid I had bright red hair then it went to auburn and now it is just brown. So I decided to go back to red. I like it..a lot!!

My friend S has also helped me by taking pictures of me to send to J. He likes seeing what I'm up to and having updated pictures. 

And when I went to the eye doctor I was very delinquent in this...and I was diagnosed with a mild astigmatism but it is enough that he wants me to wear corrective glasses. So I now have trifocals. This has been interesting. As a girl who never wore glasses to jump to trifocals it has been fun. But I'm adjusting to them.

The new hair color and the glasses.

I think both the glasses and the hair color look awesome! My hair also has gone to dark brown as I get older so I add some red to keep it interesting. People look at my strawberry blonde kids and they assume the red comes from me :-)

Looking good! Love the hair and glasses. That class sounds like a riot and I bet you'll love it! I just started zumba and it is a fun reason to get moving and burn off some calories. Have fun! Can't wait to hear your adventures in 2011.

Cute glasses (and hair color). I probably need to change mine soon, and I want some like those.
