#MAYKINGITWORK: May 25, 2018

This is my third post in the #MAKINGITWORK blog challenge set out by newly acquired friend, thanks to the April A to Z blog challenge, I.L. Wolf. My goals for #MAYkingItWork are to get back to reading (and less writing) and to restart my yoga. I will post on Fridays as to how I am doing.

We had such a busy weekend. My husband was prepping to be gone for a month, starting with joining in the Run for the Wall when it stopped for an overnight in neighboring Cookeville, then staying in Maryland for probably three weeks to visit family & friends as well as take care of a couple medical/dental appointments. While the #2Doods were at doggy camp, I was busy doing everything I could to help him get ready.

Tuesday was an errand day for me, then I picked up the #2Doods. I had to get up early for an appointment to get my wedding ring tattoo refreshed and I was busy all day until we got home at 5:30. Yeah, no yoga.

Wednesday found me and the #2Doods sleeping till almost ten in the morning! But I did organize my printed exercises for both my shoulder and my pitiformis issues. Hey, that's a start. Oh, and I did get some exercise bands at TJ Maxx on Tuesday. ;)

Thursday I managed some morning stretches. Hey, it's a start - being very careful to not stress my lower back again.

Now it's Friday and the start of a new week. May is almost over...will we have a JUkNowYouCanDoIt?

READING: I read one book...a comedy, part of a long series from an author I met at the Writer's Police Academy back on 2014. Nice break! I need to read more first person, quirky, humorous stories to prep for starting to write my Lia Rules series.


  1. I think JUkNowYouCanDoIt is HILARIOUS!! I think we can figure out a way to make that work with AccountaClub.

    I had to look up Race for the Wall...what a great idea. They're right, ALL veterans deserve recognition. And all the benefits they were promised when they enlisted, but that's a different issue.

    You've made great progress, I think, just by keeping the yoga goal on your radar. And exercise bands, very nice. TJ Maxx/Marshalls have AWESOME exercise equipment. My current yoga mat, which I love, is from Marshalls.

    I think you're doing great considering everything (and with a dental visit looming...not my favorite!)

    1. I found a great site that I'm going to use as well - being on a fixed income is always a challenge. This set lets you choose a price for the first set of lessons. I've only read the first one (been writing all day) but so far, I like it.

  2. I would love to recommend Race for the Wall to my veteran brothers, but of course it's too late for this year.

    I read nothing. I mean, my daily devotionals, and a brief check-in with blogs, but I think you're doing great for knocking out a book this week!

    1. Be sure to tell them about it for next year. It's quite a moving experience.

      Fortunately, I'm a fast reader! That's good and bad...LOL!

  3. Hi there! Do you use Twitter? I'd like to follow you if
    that would be okay. I'm definitely enjoying your blog and look forward to new

    1. Thank you, Anonymous. I wish you had left a name & URL for you. LOL! All my links are in the sidebar of this blog. I appreciate the follow.
