Life is Different and That's OK!
Saturday, February 06, 2021
And what a year it has been! this time a year ago we were settling in to our place in Florida and loving it. We were laser focused on the coming Presidential election and all that entailed and then WHAM! Covid 19 turned everything upside down.
Here in FL everything closed and thankfully we could walk and ride our bikes so kept up with our exercise. Instacart worked so we didn't have to go shopping either. We were super careful driving back to NY and that worked out fine.
Then headed to our lake house to get it ready to sell June 1 and spent the month clearing it out. Lovely memories for 20 years and time to move on.
As things started opening up in NY we ventured out for lunches outside and our gym opened so we were able to get back there in September. Arranged for a mover to bring things from NY to FL and when we got here in mid December had ALOT of unpacking to to. We also got to see the renovated kitchen and lanai which we absolutely love. Gives us so much more useable space.
Making new routines and that is just fine. We can go out to eat and are very careful to only go where masks are required and everyone respects that suggestion. The Governor here is a real dope and won't require masks
the fitness center is open so we will go there a few times/week. Our routine is different though with mostly walking outside mixed with a 30 minutes workout in the fitness center. And when we do that, typically don't go anywhere else.
Mixing it up has actually worked really well. We mostly eat at home and between that and walking an average of 22,000 steps/day my weight is right back where I want it. Get to see my brother and his wife and kids which has been GREAT! Ate outside last night.
My anxiety has calmed down since President Biden took office. His competency, decency, dignity and calm has made all the difference in the world. My partner has an appointment for the vaccine and I'm hopeful that I'll be able to book one next week.
Life is certainly different this year and that is just fine!
How is it changing for you?
