Single Life…

There are several great things about being single.  For one, you look so much better when you are single.  This is because you have more time for yourself and you can go to the gym and work on you.  Another great thing about being single is, you can do what YOU want, when YOU want to!   Your confidence increases and others notice!  Suddenly, I am having the door opened for me everywhere I go and I am met with smiles.  You can take trips and go places when ever you want to and you do not have to negotiate with a partner about what to do.  My bedroom and closet are organized with all of MY things.  No having to share the space in the bathroom either!  I really like this Single Life!  I have embraced it and love all aspects of it…

I have to say, I do feel much more confident about myself.  Going to the gym three days a week has helped in that area greatly.  My body is toning down and I have been tanning, which brings a nice glow all over your body.  I find myself smiling so much more now.  I no longer have that thought in my mind of, when will I find a mate.  My mind is now full of, what makes me happy and feel good…

I have not been to Northern, Illinois since 2006.  That is where my favorite sister lives and her children, plus their children.  I miss them greatly.  I leave in 12 days to go up there for 5 weeks.  I will be taking the Greyhound bus, which I have never done before.  New adventures…  I love being in the outdoors, so my niece will be taking me on nature walks during my stay.  I will also get to spend some time with an awesome guy I know from high school.  Visit with a few of my high school friends too.  The weather is much cooler up there compared to  here.  I just had to turn the A/C on in my house because the temperature is up in the upper 80’s and 90’s now.  I am excited!

I have been trying to quit smoking, but I have not done well with this.n the doctor put me on Wellbutrin in hopes it would help, but so far it has not.  One thing at a time I guess.  I have been focusing on getting into shape and I do not want to gain weight from quitting smoking either.  I will give this medication some time and if it does not help at al, I will try something else.  Right now, I do the gym three days a week and try to walk the dogs on the other days.  I have found that doing squats ever day has given me a butt lol!  I never really had a butt, but I do now…………
