I have really fallen off for the support I always got from SP. I haven't been blogging lately and I find it helps me if I get things written down. I need to go back to doing this regularly, but it seems, time goes so fast.
I'm still doing Real Appeal. Now I do a one on one session with my coach every week and it is really helping. I'm finally starting to lose weight.
I was laid up for a bit as I pulled my achilles and then my hamstring. I am back on the treadmill and back to my 10,000 steps a day.
On a really bad note and one I am having a horrible time dealing with is my son was scammed out of a large portion of the money that was left for him by my friend. I was so angry. The first thing I thought of was to kick him out of the house. Unfortunately, that is not an option. He has Aspergers and, I guess, I always expected he would grow out of it, but that doesn't happen. I forget he doesn't see the world the way other people do. People with Aspergers are sooo gullible. This was going on for 3 months and I didn't see it. I am so mad at myself. I keep thinking shoulda woulda coulda. I can't change what happened, but I can definitely change the future. We have decided to take some of the money and make improvements to the house which will go to the kids when we are no longer here. I would rather do that than see any "flushed down the toilet" again. I spoke with my son's therapist and he said that there is a good chance my son could do this again as he doesn't see what these scammers do. The police said scammers using this "Romance Scam" racked in $146 Million dollars last year. So now, all the money stays with us and we give him an allowance.
On a happier note, my daughter finally graduated as a Vet Tech and she has a full time job.
JC is doing really well with the girl who is leasing him. He was great at the last show. Jack is doing awesome as well.
I just need to keep on keeping on....
