'Home' again

It just doesn't feel right calling this apartment home. But being back together with my husband does. It took longer to get home than it did to go back to Alabama, but that's OK. We made it back and it felt good to be a family again. The kids loved seeing their daddy and played and loved on him until bed time. I loved being whole again, having my partner in parenthood beside me. I do have to say that I'm falling more and more in love with South Carolina or at least the area we are in. It is starting to feel more like home or at least more like I belong here. Which makes me feel better and more comfortable. 4 days until we close on the house and 7 days until we are moved in.

Today was my first day back at running. And to say I'm out of shape would be a great understatement. I know I'm out of shape when my "fat" starts to itch after I've been running for a bit and my muscles are warmed. But it's the first day of hopefully getting a grip back on my health. I've been far from healthy for one too many months now, so it's back to exercising, drinking water and eating right. I don't have a clue how much I weigh and I quite frankly like it that way. But I do know what I weighed right before we moved, so going from that I want to lose 10 pounds and tone, tone, tone. I hope to truly stick to it this time.

Well, it's Monday so that means washing clothes and getting the apartment back in order. Which it was in order until we came home. Now it's messy again. Besides that, I don't really know what we will be up to today. I'll be sure to take pictures if it's anything interesting.. or I will try.. I think my batteries are dead. Later!

If a structure felt more like being at home than being with your complete family, something would be wrong.
;-). Glad you are together again.
