It's been a year. I'm aware.
I'M SORRY!! Really. Really. Sorry.
I won't make a list of excuses but I'll fill you in on what has been going on with me this last year.
For those of you who saw my posts about my kitty, she ended up dying in October last year. I had her for 17.5 years of her 19 year life. So it was, needless to say, very sad. I did adopt a cat from the local Animal Control Authority in Feb. I went there to just look. Just look!!! And what happens? I adopt one. But she's adorable. It was a good decision.
Then, in April, my puppy dog died very suddenly. He was my buddy boy. He was just shy of 13 years old. And I miss him lots and lots and lots. Okay, I'm changing subject since talking about this makes me sad.
BUT!!! On a big life change note! I moved from California to Florida. I KNOW! Quite the move. I came out here to take a visiting professor job at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University. (Hopefully it will turn into something more permanent.) I'm really loving the job so this is a good thing! However - to get here, I had to drive across country.

Being so close to the space coast just adds to the coolness factor of living here. I do love it. Well, with the exception of the humidity. Holy heckfire! What is with this humidity?!?! I like my job. And while I am working... a lot.... I'm still managing to find time to have some "me" time. I even got a trainer at a local gym!!
So here comes the confession.... with all of this crap that went on.... I gained weight back. A lot of it really. I'm trying very hard to get back on the wagon. Getting the eating back on track, getting exercise in. (Oh - which is hard because I now have a stress fracture in my foot. But it's healing.)
Cross your fingers for me! And I'll be back here soon. PROMISE! (And I mean it!)
