2016 in Review

2016 was the year of Health.
Not for many superstars, oof, I mean, wow, 2016, did you have to take so many?? I mean, my health.
My Health - I talked to my gynecologist and had a procedure called an ablation done this summer. This was a good thing for me. Not for my pocketbook. I recovered much quicker than my accounts.

Husband's health - He also had a procedure done, plus he gets an annual blood screening from his employer, the results of which keep him motivated to be healthy. Thing is, we cook and eat the same dinner, so it is imperative that we keep each other accountable for healthy living.

Dog and Cat health - This year a cat joined our family. He adopted us. He needed to be fixed, so I took care of that. The dog has had a tumor on his leg growing for 2 and a half years and I had that removed. I feel like a good pet owner again.

Eye health of boys - While both my sons are pretty healthy, this year they both needed new glasses. My youngest has had glasses since he was 2, so this was old hat for him, but the oldest just got glasses this year. Clearly, they have my genes.

2017 needs to be a year of Exercise and Well-Being

Vacations -  I am planning small. I still have medical bills to pay! There is not much extra to save, but I am saving up. I want to head South this year. Maybe I'll see some big water. I hear there's this place called a 'beach'..

Hobbies - I have to write more. This is what I love, this is what grounds me. I get lost if I don't write and share what I write with a community. I have a profile on Ficlatté.com and I'm gonna use it!

Keep up on the health - I'm starting out right. I've been using my elliptical and am about to add more to my workouts. With the precariousness of life staring you right in the face, all those big names we lost, it is never a better time than now to start living happier and healthier.
