Month: December 2016

This week had all three of us going to various doctors to help us prepare for the “big” retirement

We want to absolve any health issues now, so traveling will be more fun in the future. Weall got fairly good health reports, but do have some issues to work on. Mine is stamina and weight. After all I have that zipline trip in my future and I need to be able to climb all those steps and then be a safe weight on the zipline.
Dh is still having trouble with that leg that hospitalized him last December. He is seeing a specialist on it as I type this. Hopefully we can finally get some answers as to the cause and how to prevent future scares. He wants to be able to swim, float trip and other water activities, but can’t until it is safe for that leg.
Ds’ left hand is swollen and tender, x rays and other testing by a doctor says he has overworked it and developed some tendon problems. Nothing horrible, but it is going to take time for him to get it back in full working order. Hmmm strange this happened just as wood cutting season started…hummm.
So all in all we have very minor problems and have a good health outlook in our future. That is cool.
One of the things the three of us are working on/with is the S Health app on our Samsung phones. Be prepared for a blog post review of this app.
It was major grocery shopping again this weekend (boy that month went fast) so ow!! On the grocery budget, but now I don’t have to battle Wal-Mart again for a long time (a month).
Our big entertainment for the week was so simple that many people would go “BORING” but we all enjoyed it. We spent about three hours last night watching the eclipse of the moon or the “Blood Moon” and taking photos until it was too dark to take any further ones. Yep,a blog post is coming.
Financial wise we paid extra on the mortgage, did more research on items we want to purchase before we retire and purchased an app for dh’s tablet that gives elevations for the eastern and western US on all the major highways, and some side roads, as well as low clearance bridges and over passes. All VERY important when you are traveling with a heavy high profile vehicle. Yeah, another review blog post coming soon.
Speaking of blog posts I had two go up this last week, one was part 4 on the Trial Run Series (5 coming soon) and the other was a movie review of Everest.
We made minor progress on the big declutter, but nothing to get excited about.
This week’s plans include more decluttering, preparing for a big family reunion of the Poyner/Carney Clan, another extra payment (or two) on the mortgage, a bit more medical testing, yard work and general day to day living. Oh yeah, and blogging.
