I am 58, overweight again, and trying to get healthy. I am blogging about weight loss and everyday issues for women. My blog will include ramblings about the daily life of a mother, grandmother, wife and friend. I would love to have you come along for the ride!
I am starting a new challenge. The challenges help me come up with new posts everyday. I normally post everyday anyway, it just helps. I may post more than once on some days when the prompt for the day doesn't work well with something else I want to post.
I am getting started on this a little late so I will post extra to try to catch up on the first few days. The list of prompts is located on The Story of My Life's blog. Thanks to Jenni for the challenge.
Day 1, Wednesday: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph... no one will be counting your words... probably)
I am starting with day one and will catch up pretty quickly. I will try to do to or three a day until I am caught up.
I was born in Missouri, and grew up in Indiana. I am the eighth of
nine children. I am getting so old I don't remember much about my
childhood. I am 58, who can remember back that far. I have had a
very fun life. I have had a few tragedies, but I choose not to focus
on them. I love all my siblings, and my children and grandchildren.
My husband and I are going to be alone starting next year.
Hopefully, that will work out well. We have never lived alone
before. After my first husband died, my kids and I lived alone for
12 years, then I married my second husband. We started out with
my older two boys still living at home, and my daughter at college.
By the time my youngest son moved to college, my husband and
I had our son. We have spent more time alone in the last year or so
since my son seems to be busy with friends and has many activities
that don't include us. Most of the last 18 years we have spent with
our son tagging along with us. The three of us have been very
close, and we just really didn't spend much time without him. I am
on to a new adventure in a few months. I will see what it is like to
live all alone with my husband! I hope I can get him to spend some
time traveling. I have traveled with my son most of the time lately.
