A New Season

Well, I’ll be 50 soon.  50?  Yes, 50.  I’ll soon be entering a new season of life an I’m kinda excited.

My kids are grown or almost grown.  My oldest is on his own, working and doing what needs to be done.  My middle child is overseas living his dream of being a US Marine.  My youngest, my baby, my only girl is 16 so she still needs me, a little.  So my days of Cub Scout meetings, T-ball/baseball games, cheer practice, karate tournaments, swim meets, football games, track meets and cookie booths are almost at an end.  What do I do now?

I have a lot of plans.

For one, I’m starting my own business.  I’m really excited to launch this new venture.  It’s a direct selling business of a product that I absolutely LOVE.  Tupperware.  More on that later.  Lots more. 🙂

My husband and I are making plans together to start getting ready for the day when it’s just us, again.  We are going to start tennis.  We played shortly after we were married until, because we were expecting our first bundle of joy, we quit.  Now, 20 years later, we are going to pick it up again.

To prepare for retirement we are following Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover.  We are on baby steps #1 and #2.  That is almost a full time job in itself because we are Gazelle Intense but still have a 16 yo girl living with us.  They tend to be very expensive.

I want to join or start an online book club.  I love to read but have not had the opportunity to get into books like I used to.  I will soon have the time and love the whole idea of a book club.  I’m not sure how to go about this yet but I’ll be looking into it.  Actually it doesn’t even have to be online.

Anyway, lots of fun, exciting things are happening here and I can’t wait!
