Checking Boxes


Since I am halfway through my time without my Angel, I thought I would reflect on the things I had proposed to do while she was gone.  (See post “51 Days Without My Angel”)   

     1.  The first thing I had done was PRK eye surgery.  It has been 3 weeks and my vision is still not perfect.  The doctor said that people with eyes as bad as mine take longer to get the perfect vision.  I can see without contacts or glasses, things are still a bit fuzzy.  In the mean time I have given my glasses to the neighborhood children to use as a magnifying glass to catch bugs on fire. 
     2.  Travel- I was able to go to Orlando, and I am looking into heading to New Orleans, Washington D.C., or Lexington before Angel gets back. 
     3.   I have not yet had my back yard landscaped, but I am meeting with a landscaper at the beginning of the week.  I am excited to be putting in a swing set for Angel.  Does anyone have any suggestions? 
     4.  Get back in shape- I joined my boot camp yesterday and of course for my first class they wanted a physical assessment of me.  I found out that in 1 minute I can do19 pushups (not the girlie style either), 39 squats, 42 full sit-ups, and 77 jumping jacks.  I also ran a mile in 10 minutes 19 seconds (that cleaned up play list must have helped out!). 
     5.  I’ve done a little yoga but not as much as I would like to.  I suggest that everyone try yoga at some point. 
     6.  I am playing tennis this Saturday.  Look out bees I will be swatting! 
   
The sock drawer has not been cleaned out (probably won't be), I have ordered over 100 pictures to put in frames.  I may just decorate an entire wall with them.  I just hope I can keep myself busy enough to make the next 25 days fly by!  I can’t wait to come home and play with Elmo, go for bike rides, clean up kitchen floor messes, and cover my Angel in kisses!!!!!  I must admit I have actually missed The Wiggles and can’t wait to hear their songs in the mornings.
