First Day Of Spring

Posted by terrepruitt on March 21, 2013

We have know each other eighteen years as you might have read about in my Day Ten Of Month Of Planking, First Day Of Nineteenth Year post.  We have been married for fifteen years.  It was my ideal to be married on the first day of spring.  And honestly looking at calendars back then there seemed to be different ideas of whether the first day of spring was March 20th or March 21st.

I had always believed it was March 21st so that was the day that I thought would be nice to get married.  It so happened that March 21st was on a Saturday in the year 1998 . . . . so that is when we got married.

The first day of spring is like an announcement of new beginnings.  New life begins.  New things happen.  Flowers bloom.  It’s all new.  I think it is fitting and romantic to be married on the first day of spring.  Even though we had been together for three years, our wedding was the start of a new life for us.  A life for us together.

I wasn’t nervous, because I had no doubt.  I was impatient.  We had created a very short ceremony where the minister only talked for about ten minutes.  There was no singing, no reading, nothing.  It was scheduled to last about 20 minutes.  Now, if you ask me how long it felt, I might reply fifteen years.  I swear the minister sounded like all the adults on Peanuts and he could not be done fast enough.  When he had John’s ring in his hand I kept reaching for it.  I mean, he was just talking jibberish anyway.  All I was thinking was, “Let’s get this marriage started!!”  And I was shocked out of my revery when my husband-to-be playfully smacked my hand after my third grab.  Yeah, the whole ceremony was wiggles and giggles.

To my Honey:

Thank you very much for all the wonderful times we have had.  I appreciate all you do for us.  I look forward to the next fifteen (and hopefully a lot more) years with you.  Thank you.  Happy Anniversary.

Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you very much for reading this post.  I know I don’t always stay on track EXACTLY, but many of you know that a happy healthy relationship is key to well-being.  Now, I am not saying that a relationship is a steady ride, there are ups and downs, but getting through them is what helps with the “well-being”.  Also, I am not saying that one needs to be in a relationship in order to well, but I am saying that when there are relationships and they are happy and healthy that adds to someone’s well-being.

Day Seventeen Of Plank A Day For A Month Challenge

Posted by terrepruitt on March 17, 2013

Wow!  We are on day seventeen of our Plank A Day For A Month Challenge.  Pretty good.

I am always hoping that many people will participate and comment, but my one good friend is good enough for me.  We are having a good time, right, Dear Friend?

I am trying to decide whether to add time today or to keep it at my present duration.  I just use the stopwatch feature on my phone.  I make certain I plank until my “prescribed time” then I let it run until I am “done”.

Ok, as I typed this I decide what I am going to do.  I am going to change my present goal time/”prescribed time” to what has been my “done” time.  And then see how far past that my “done time” becomes.

Does that makes sense to you?

Plank ‘O Day

Posted by terrepruitt on March 11, 2013

Plank day number eleven.  So here we are on our eleventh day of planking.  Might be a difficult day to do anything because of that oh-so-precious hour we lost on Sunday.  So sad.  Not only do we lose an hour, but I believe our body just gets messed up having to adjust to everything being an hour off.  I know it messes with my cat’s schedule.

Animals don’t look at clocks they have a rhythm and when we are forced to change the time it messes up their rhythm.  Well, hopefully you can keep your plank going . . . . . .

How are you doing?  Have you added more time?
