Cabin Fever!

I love fall & winter. I love the cold, coats, Ugg boots, sweaters, snow (in moderation) the whole thing. However I'm looking forward to getting out of the house and into the mountains or down to the water. I need some nature. I want to get outside and work in my yard. I want to go for long drives and see wildlife. I want to wear my new hiking pants & shoes. I want to take pictures of beautiful things. I cant wait till it's 10:00 pm before the sun goes down. I crave 75 degree weather in July! I miss the hummingbirds and rainbows and flowers. Summers are very short here so the most must be made of them.

Bring on the spring!

It's been a while.....

......and sadly I still don't have a whole lot to talk about. Last night Terry and I went to another Everett Silvertips hockey game (they lost). It was a surprise for my birthday. I love surprises & hockey! Our seats were right behind the benches and the damn other team stood the whole game so I really didn't get to see much. It was still a good time.

I've become cautiously comfortable in my management position. The Manager Trainer, Terra, was in my studio for 2 weeks and I think I've got it. I'm sure things will come up of course but I think I'll be okay.

On the shitty news front I have been diagnosed with diabetes. Ironically we always assumed Terry would get it. Both his sister & Dad had it. But NOOooOOoo! It's been about 2 weeks since I found out and I'm finally okay with it. Turns out that's why my eyes are being so weird! I've changed my eating and Terry and I walk outside for at least an hour everyday that the weather is good and we walk at the mall when the weather sucks. At this point I'm not on any meds and I'm controlling it with diet & exercise. I fully intend to make good of a shitty situation. Everything happens for a reason.

Our 10 year anniversary is coming in June and 10 years is a milestone in my book. We want to do something big. We're thinking Hawaii, the big island. We have a friend there that we don't get to see often and plus we never had a proper honeymoon. So if you want to donate to the "Terry & Heather's 10 year Anniversary" fund let me know! ;-)
