Wanted: Exercise Suggestions
I workout almost everyday at the gym along with outside activities and frequent beach walks. I decided that I was going to try something new and maybe meet new people in the process. This morning I showed up at Burn Boot Camp. Holy smokes! It was an intense 45 minutes of non stop exercising. I can’t reach over my head at the moment but it was fantastic! I signed up for four weeks.😊
So suggestions. What do you do for exercise? I’m ready to try new things and get myself back out there.

First Holiday of Many
I was driving back from the gym this morning and a few thoughts occurred to me. This is my first big holiday after divorce. The first of many. In that moment I experienced various emotions; relief in that I’m finally free, sadness as my kids are experiencing their first in this new life as well, and a bit of confusion in that I felt guilty that I’m happy about this. How a 10 minute drive can produce so many emotions is beyond me. Both of my kids are here with me for Thanksgiving and will be so for Christmas, too. They haven’t mentioned their dad. I’m not sure if they’ve had the discussion about holidays with him and my new motto is “He’s not my problem anymore”. I know this may not be my reality in the years to come, but I’m so incredibly grateful I have my sons with me. I can’t imagine holidays without them.
Anyways, I’m rambling but I guess to those who are at the first holiday stage like myself, or the expert stage, I wish you all peace and comfort, and dare I say it? JOY. 💜

Howdy. Why does it make me smile saying that? Because I'm visiting OK in less than two weeks. I'm beyond elated!
Post divorce. It's been exactly 5 months since my divorce but over 2.5 years since separating. I feel free, relieved, and grateful I can breathe again. I would be lying if I said I don't experience moments of loneliness. I'm navigating through that.
Pre-Covid, I was an avid traveler. I have booked my first trip. In less than two weeks I'll be in Tulsa for a few days along with visting Pawhuska to see the Pioneer Woman's stomping ground and lodge. (If you cook, you know what I mean). I'm excited to see the beautiful terrain of OK; its praries, ranches, wildlife, but also experience the city of Tulsa. The skyline looks beautiful and the parks around the city seem incredible.
So question for those who live near or have been. Must sees while visiting Tulsa?

New Beginnings/New Life
Just curious. After all was said and done and your divorce was final, did anyone move or just relocate to a new town/city/state? If so, do you think the new location helped in the process of healing and moving forward? Any regrets starting over someplace new?
