New Fitness Routine

You have probably noticed that I haven’t posted in a while.  I’ve been in North Carolina helping get my parents ready to move nto a nursing home facility.  Sounds strange to even say that! 

My mother just had a stroke and is finally ready to move into independent/assisted living.  We’re all really relieved to have them in a safer environment with more support and care giving.  My dad has dementia and is definitely winding down.  It was good to see them but also difficult.

My mother comes from  a long line of pack rats so it was serious work going through every drawer, cabinet, closet, and bookcase in their home so that it wasn’t obvious that I’d thrown half of the contents out.  My new fitness routine was sitting on the floor sorting and tossing, bending and lifting, and dragging heavy garbage bags of paper out to the car and eventually to the dump.  I was disappointed that their city doesn’t  have recycling for mixed paper. 

Next came the heavy lifting – the garage.  I’m going to need to sleep for a few days before I have the energy to tell the rest of the story……

Until then, stay young….exercise!
