Writing, Writing Prompts

WOD Challenge 06-06-2022 A Special Day

Tomorrow is a special day for Dave and me, although we may not celebrate it until Thursday or perhaps the weekend.

Dave and me a couple of months ago.

It will be our 37th anniversary! That, I feel, is great in these days and times. For us, it has been mainly a walk in the park. Sure, we’ve had some ups and downs like every marriage, but it’s been smooth sailing most of the time.

Dave is beginning to consider retirement and we have been talking about moving to a less populated area, like a lake somewhere. Our original dream was to retire to the coast, but due to soaring prices and the increased activity in the Gulf, we talked about moving to a lake instead. The jury is still out on that one.

I will keep you posted as soon as something is on the immediate horizon, I figure sometime after summer.

Wow, it’s been a hot minute since I have been on the computer! It took a long time to reboot, I think it was mad at me for ignoring it for so long. All my blogs for months now have been on the iPad. I am thrilled I still know how to type, lol! I am rusty, and it will take a bit to get back up to the speed I was at when I stopped my transcription lessons (which I need to get back to).

I am still journaling, keeping up with my grief journal, and attending the therapy sessions every Monday night except for the last two weeks. Last Monday was a holiday and the week before, I wasn’t feeling good. I also started an entry for a writing contest, but need to work more on that. I was writing it as a long limerick, but I may change it to a short story. I have enough limericks saved now for a book if I choose to do that. Speaking of books, I have been longing to write one. I even have a working title- Why Don’t You Care?

It is going to be about the state of the medical community and society in general. I feel that in the aftermath of COVID and the increased downfall of society, there is a general sense of apathy in the working world. Not only the working world but the whole world. Have you not noticed that?? Just think about it for a minute.

But on to happier subjects.

My dad’s house is mostly cleaned out after this past weekend and the photographer is coming to take pictures to list it on the market! Yea! I feel bittersweet about this. I was a bit emotional on Saturday and again yesterday when I walked through and saw the empty rooms. It must be done, however, so we can all move on with our lives.

I need to get back to regular exercise, I have been slacking-except for times in the pool. Even though I don’t do traditional exercises, my legs never stop moving. During the summer, I try to spend as much time in the pool as possible. But I need to keep on walking and working with lighter weights to shape up. So, I’m off to do that before Dave gets home and before I have to go to grief counseling.

Have a good Monday everyone!

  1. Wow! Happy Early 37th Anniversary, Kim! That’s such a blessing. Here’s hoping whatever you two decide regarding where you’ll move, it’ll suit the both of you!

    • Well, we aren’t sure yet! We are looking for a lake property somewhere in east Texas. ☺️
      Dave still has to retire and he hasn’t decided exactly when that will be, but pretty soon!
