I plan to write my blog at least twice a week.
Then suddenly I realize that time has gone by and it has been a week since I have posted.
Life has been getting in the way.
I lost a very good friend last week. Leo was the first person I met when I moved into my apartment last year. He was such a funny nice man and he along with a small group of others have become like family to me.
One minute he was laughing with us and the next minute he went to his apartment and had a massive stroke.
It is definitely a down side of living in a retirement community, and as I am the youngest person here I know that there will be other losses.
However, I wouldn't trade the experience of getting to know these older people. I love their stories. There has been so much tragedy in their lives, and yet they still laugh and look forward to their days.
It's nice to have a community of friends where at any time of the day there is someone to talk to.
But that gets me back to my good intentions. I still need to earn some extra money each month, so I need to schedule my time a little better. I need to get to my booth more often, list things on Etsy more often, and write my blog on a more regular basis.
The one thing I have done is schedule an exercise program. I'll let you know how that is going.
Good intentions aside, we all need to take care of ourselves both mentally and physically.
A belated happy birthday to my mom who turned 93 on Monday. She has taken pretty good care of herself.
