Finally! The days are longer than the nights! How happy I am to come into the light half of the year! My family is off in Adelboden, getting in their last skiing of the year. I’m enjoying the free time (no cooking!) trying to catch up on updating my transfer to my new computer. I got a beautiful new 20″ iMac as a Christmas present. Didn’t get it til last month though, because I was stuck in preparation mode. Had to clean off my desk first! Didn’t make much progress, though, until the iMac arrived. It sat in the corner in the box for two days while I did power-decluttering of my office. Since I was still using the old Mac OS 9, none of my programs and not many of my files could transfer to the new Mac OS X. I’ve had to learn a new system, new programs, redo databases, etc. It’s a ton of work, but worth it! And the toys on this computer are incredible!
But I’m not spending all my time sitting in front of the computer. I’ve found and adapted a system for “home management” (http://www.flylady.net) and am taking better care of my health. Through simple but regular attention to what I eat, how much water I drink, and how much exercise I get, I’ve dropped those annoying extra pounds I’ve been carrying around the last few years. Getting back to my pre-pregnancy weight by Easter is a doable goal.
Then it’s off to Florida to work on my hair, skin and style! If I can at least come back with a pair of jeans that fit, I’ll be happy. A new bikini wouldn’t be bad, either. We will probably miss the tulips again while we are gone. Shame, because we got three mystery bulbs when we visited Wildegg castle last fall, and I’d like to see how they bloom. Dave will have to take pictures for me.
