Whew, I need to go somewhere to rest!

Have you ever been on a cruise?  If so, do you remember your first cruise?  Remember getting the daily ship schedule and then kill yourself for the next six days trying to do EVERYTHING the ship cruise director has to offer?  Then the end of your cruise is upon you and you feel like you need to take a vacation to rest up from your cruise.

That's about what I'm feeling like right now.  There are so many activities at my winter home that it is wearing me out trying to do everything that I'm feeling like I need a rest.  LOL

Let's see, there's the pool.  I love the pool and am glad to hear that the pool is heated so I should be able to use it most of the year plus it has a hot tub.  There are two groups of people; the noodles and the non-noodles.  Margie and Roger belong to the noodles.  Sounded good to me, we go to the pool to swim but all we do is noodle around.  That's okay I have my own noodle.  Lots of folks to meet.

Next is the water exercise class at 10:00 in the morning.  I can do that 'cause it's not too early.  There were about four of us but I've been told that when January gets here and ALL the snowbirds get back it will be more crowded.  Some of the exercises I had done before but the ones with the empty water jugs were new to me.  I thought what a cinch but today I'm thinking I sure need to do more of that to work the soreness out.  To tell you the truth, I thought these seasoned citizens were doing exercises that were easy and not really doing anything to notice a difference. Man-o-man, I take back all those thoughts I may have had.  Ouch, ouch.

Now if that wasn't enough this morning at 9:00 is beginners line-dancing.  Okay, not too bad, I love to dance so this should be a cinch.  NOT, I'm beginning I have 2 left feet.  I just have to practice, practice, practice.  No problem with the electric slide though.  It was fun and I'll go back.  I stayed to watch some of the intermediate dances and those folks are good.

Eating, well let's see.  There's all you can eat wings at the End Zone.  Last night was buy one-get one free fajitas at the All Star Grill.  There was another single lady so we got to take advantage of the bogo free.  It would have been cheap if it hadn't been for my 2 margaritas.   Tonight will be the welcome back party of ribs and stuff.  Yummy.  Good thing I started working out, otherwise I'd be packing on the lbs.  But I need to cut back on the eating and lose some of these excess lbs.  Oh well, tomorrow's another day.

This is a great community to ride my bicycle and Sedona just loves riding.  I got a flat and had to get the tube changed (thanks Roger.)  Next time I'll know how to do it.  The tube didn't come with directions.

Roger is my new "husband."  He has fixed my water faucet outside, tire tube, door lock and the outside water faucet (again.)  I sure thank Margie for letting Roger adopt me.  He is a good handyman.  It's kind of like my BFF, Debbie, letting me use her husband, Randy as my "husband" when I was in my stick and brick home.  Just a point of clarification, "Husband" as in fixing things.

I've got other things to do like bingo and there are bus rides to the Hard Rock Casino and you know I've got to give that a try.  

Now I have a dilemma, Monday I've got line dancing and water exercise at the same time.  What's a girl to do!

There's ice cream socials, golf cart parade (I'll decorate my bike and me & Sodona will ride in the parade in it) , crafts, horseshoes, shuffleboard, dominoes and nickle-nickle (whatever that is, but I'll find out and let you know.)  Oh and in addition to all this I've got an interview with Disney next Tuesday.  When am I going to have a chance to work?

Margie told me the other day that someone told her that if they stay in here the first year they will end up  buying.  There are a lot of neat places in here but I'm not ready to even think of putting down roots.

Life is good!  Later...

Stop It! You are making me tired! LOL

Sounds like you are having a great time.

I think Roger is your new handy husband.
