30 Day Challenge 30

Day 30
Tell about a recent change in your life; say, over the past year or so.

My health has totally gone south! I hate it. I’ve never been sickly, ever. And it’s not that I’m “sick” sick, like throw-up or headcold sick. It’s that my parts ain’t working so well anymore. Well let me tell you, this is the Summer of Repair. I don’t want anything to ruin the upcoming Odyssey, to get in the way of playing with the Js, or to complicate the massive choreography that needs to take place over the next few months. Not happening. Just call me Howard Beale.

So, what are your ch-ch-ch-changes? Bet you have some.

Actually there have been two major changes in our lives. First…our youngest graduated from high school a year ago and has completed her first year of college. She adjusted beautifully…and much to my surprise…we survived and actually discovered that the empty nest will not kill you. We were blessed to be actively involved in raising our family longer than most parents…32 years of kiddos at home to be exact. We loved every minute (well, almost) and now find that it’s just as amazing to be the parents of adults. Grandkids, of course, are the icing on the cake. Cool stuff… Read more »

I’m not sure it’s as obvious to others, but I’ve gained a lot of confidence this year. I don’t know why. I also graduated high school and made an astounding number of new friends that I’ll have during college and maybe beyond that. I found a campus that feels more like home than Hometown.

Maybe we should get you a bubble to stay in until the Odyssey. :P

The indepence of college this year (and years to come) has been nothing but wonderful for me. I find myself growing into the woman I want to be and I am more motivated than ever to persevere through my schooling to be the PT I desire to be. Also through my job and volunteering near campus I’ve had a surprising change of heart this past year for those who are severely disabled and handicapped. They are people just like you and I trapped in their bodies by a disease or physically weakness. Their happiness isn’t measured by their possessions or… Read more »

I’m sort of with you…the old body just ain’t as nimble and flexible as it used to be. Mostly back & neck stuff. Thankful for a good chiropractor, though :-) Most frequently heard phrase around our household:

“I think I slept wrong last night…”
:D

Almost the same as you. Trying to get this extra weight off so I can walk a marathon next summer. That’s 2012. :) If I don’t get the weight off then walking it will be pure he**.

I find myself at a major life change (no, not THAT life change. Give me a couple of years!). After being a work-at-home mom for 22 years, that chapter of my life is coming to an end. Having real depression when the first son left home two years ago, I’m trying to ready myself for the baby leaving. His three weeks in Germany this summer will be a good test. So, while I don’t regret for a minute being home with my kiddos, now comes the real challenge! Whatever am I going to do with myself!? Who’s going to need… Read more »

In December 2010, I reached my goal weight with a total loss of 82.6 lb!! At the same time, the music store from which I was renting a teaching space closed, forcing me to do what I had been considering for some time, which was striking out on my own. Melody Music Studios, LLC was formed in January. It’s been a bit of a bumpy ride, but for the most part has come together quite nicely, considering I only had 2 weeks’ notice. @ Lori: THAT change ain’t as bad as one might think – it’s rather liberating in fact.… Read more »

I’ve stopped trying to harness the hopes and dreams of orphans to fuel my evil inventions. I strictly use solar power now. Even evil is going green.

I’m right with you Lori!! My youngest just graduated from HS and will be headed off to college in the fall and my oldest will be a senior in college. As I’ve said before – I’ve spent the last 21 years having my #1 job being their Mom. I echo that sentiment….who will need my now???? I adjusted fairly quickly when the oldest went away but I still had his little brother around….guess maybe I’ll get reacquainted with my spouse and the cat!! I know my kids are not going to completely “done with me” but it certainly won’t be… Read more »
