When our Grammy and Papa day-care ended this year (after ten years!), now that all three are in school all day, I thought I would have a hard time filling my days.
So I rolled my sleeves up and re-retired and discovered ME time again.
We get to our local university’s glorious warm water pool much more often....a 3 hour venture door to door.
I am getting to a few more gentle yoga classes.
AND...I am meditating every day, which helps me with absolutely everything...mentally, physically and spiritually.
Btw...I cannot sit in that lotus position at all so I meditate lying down, with a cozy down comforter on top, guided by several different teachers on YouTube on my antique iPod touch...and I never fall asleep, probably because I have been sleeping sooooooooo well for months now, thanks to my Charlotte’s Web cbd oil....I wake up refreshed and ready to go in the morning.
I can’t say enough good things about cbd oil and have reduced by half two prescriptions I have been on for many years.
I have plenty of time to plan healthy meals and we eat at home almost every meal.
I am drinking less wine....have gone ten days AF in November!
This also helps me be a better sleeper, as well as think more clearly.
Lunch with my bff’s is easier to arrange now.
My dear man and I work together outside and our lawn and gardens look fabulous and ready for winter.
I try to find a chance to see the kids during the week, like helping out with appointments or lessons but I definitely see them all every weekend, usually for an afternoon and a sleepover...but that is getting harder as they get older and have more activities.
Anyway...enjoying this chapter of my rich and happy life right now.
Have some fun this weekend, my friends!
