Life as a new Oregonian on July 31, 2007 9:32 am
My husband and I moved from Riverside, Calif. to Oregon last December, 2006. Both of our sets of parents retired up here, and after several visits over the years, we kept thinking how beautiful it would be to live here, with all the trees and greenery, and cooler weather. We found a very cool house, secluded in the forest, with 7 acres, and made our dreams come true! :)
Lately the blackberries are growing everywhere around us like weeds. I took a cooking class through U. of O's Extension on how to make jams/jellies :) I'm going to keep picking fruit, freezing it, and make awesome sweet treats with them!
I have made friends with my neighbors. We have about 6 of us that walk together every morning now, with our dogs. Our walk is brisk, up and down hills, for 45 min. Total of 2.75 miles a day. This is great exercise and I'm feeling good about this.
My husband has been so loving and supportive of me. I think he is very happy with my weight loss. I know he loved me as a fat person, too, but I think he's smart and just wants to make sure I get plenty of attention so that I won't respond to other men's attention :) LOL I'm lucky to be so loved by him! I have no doubt of that. I wish I loved myself as much as my husband does...
It seems my life couldn't be better. My dreams have all come true. I've always wanted to be a "Normal" sized person, my whole life I've struggled being the fat girl, and now I'm finally "normal". I've always wanted to live in the forest, with trees all around me, and privacy. I own a beautiful property/land... I've always wanted to have peace and quiet, less chaos, and now I have it! I've always wanted to be free to do what I wanted to do with my days (not have to work) and now that I'm not working, I can fill my days with whatever hobbies interest me. So, after having everything I ever wanted.... now what? Why is there still something missing? Why do I get depressed when I have NOTHING to be sad about?? I should be happy!
