Wow, life!

Tuesday, March 17, 2020

I hope you all are well! As of today, we are out of school indefinitely. They will monitor and update every two weeks. Most of us in education doubt we'll return. We are doing e-learning, but teachers are concerned how much the kids will actually do. Grades are frozen, state testing has been dismissed, and everyone is just hunkering down.

I am still going out walking or running every day. I also do weight training and yoga every other day. I feel strong and I'm not overly concerned about the scale. Of course with age and weight training it's gone up a bit. I'd like to be 5 lbs. lighter, but at this point in my life being healthy is more important than a number. That is the beauty of age, one becoming more comfortable with oneself. I'm loving this point of my life.

My kids are all doing well. Graduation from college, one returned to get a masters, one finishing an electricians apprenticeship, and one almost done with his first year in the automotive repair program. Two bought a house together and one other is moving in with them. I'll soon only have one at home. I have mixed feelings. I'm so proud of my kids, but hope they come over a lot. I'm not used to not having them around.

Wow, life is crazy right now, but life is awesome. I hope life is the same for all of you.

Hugs,
Mako

    And we didn’t return to school! I hope we go back on time this Fall, and this whole virus thing is behind us. How are you doing now that you are down to one?

    Busy girl.

    So glad you're kids are doing fine. My kids are getting older too (funny how that works).

    Just a matter of time when they all fly from the nest.

    Take care.

    Agree with Life - Wow!
    Happy to see an update and happy for you that things like weight management of food and fitness have leveled out. I agree with life at fifty-something having rewards. Congrats on raising children. Lol We have survived! Enjoy what is! Kudos to consistent exercise for health! Being a retired teacher myself, school closure is surreal. This too shall pass... Once again, enjoy what is!

    Good to hear from you, Mako and glad things are going well for you and your kids. Definitely some big changes afoot in your household with 2 of the 3 kids moving out and spreading their wings.

    Enjoy your time out walking and running. Take care of yourself and stay well!

    Glad things are well... I know you have a very social profession, so I do worry a bit about you getting enough "people" time in all this... and with the kids branching out... wow! Life is changing big-time in your house!

    Take good care and stay well!
