hey!

i'm still around and still at the library   my state tax return still has not surfaced  i pray it arrives soon   but in the meantime, i learned i have far more money in my retirement fund than i knew   therefore once i receive that lump sum, i'm purchasing a new laptop altogether   matter of fact Cindy and I were at Best Buy last nite and we spent a tad of my money which isn't here yet    we found me a great computer laptop and while walking around the remainder of the store i found my new camera   it's a Canon Digital pixel 8 i think with lenses available    God am I going to have fun!   i was going to purchase the Nikon N80, a SLR film camera, but decided to go ahead with the digital purchase instead    this way i can shoot photos galore and download them to share with all of you   so once my money arrives i'm off to Best Buy with Cindy again   the jackpot arrives within 2 weeks   but even before those toys, my first and foremost stop is at the dentist's office    i can finally get all of my dental work completed including replacing my bridge   so i'm ecstatic with my retirement funds being so bountiful for the moment   most of it will go into savings and the remainder will be for bills and a much needed vacation or two    i'll also be immediately enrolling into school again   i now can truly pursue my dreams    Life is Good right now!

in the meantime,  kyle is in the Army now   he'll be at Ft Leonardwood for 3-4weeks in lieu of 10days as the recruiters informed him    then he'll be off to Hawaii    I'm thinking it might be a good thing for me to visit him this year sometime instead of next    he got under my skin in a very good way    it's been a very long time since i emotionally invested into someone and i didn't even know i was doing it with him   i just feel that need to watch out for him now and it may be just what he needs   i know he'll be fine in the Army, but i desire to continue let him know i'm here for him if needed   he's a good kid and i truly want the best for him    anyways,  i miss him and was a little down for a few days after he left   i had no idea i would experience that with him   Life does have its own course for you sometimes....

anyways,  i'm beginning to finally adjust to retirement, on my own    it's a different adjustment yet good    i've discovered i can't stay inside all day    the weather has been really cold and we even got our true first snowfall this year    how people stay inside all day is beyond me at the moment, but i also realized i have been spoiled with being outside for 20yrs     not only do i need the exercise outside, i need the fresh air to clear my mind and put me at peace   and now that the weather is back up to 60 degrees, Jimmy and I are on the trails again    i will be out at least 2-3hrs every other day, if not every day, 5 days a week   it's a beautiful day today and i have yet to get there   soon very soon....

well for now i'll sign off   i must finish going thru some of my email   i'll also be back to catch up on everyone's journal on a daily visit to the library     i miss all of you and having my own computer at home    i'll see you soon again....take care
