I have three mothers-in-law

July 27, 2013 by Joanna in Joanna

I am blessed by many things -- including having three lovely mothers-in-law. I went out today for a long, leisurely lunch with two of them: Sue and Yayoe (listed in chronological order of marriage to Lohring). This must be what it's like to be retired!

It was enjoyable to have lots of adult conversation about intelligent things and to talk about life and family. Then I did useful things like get the oil and transmission fluid changed in the minivan.

In other news, I successfully made jam with 6 lbs of figs (I counted how many ounces of jam that made, but now I've forgotten) and Adam came home with 8 lbs of plums from a coworker. Now you know what you're getting for Christmas.

Life after PeaceHealth is quite pleasant so far. I have long lists of things to do -- personally, for the house and garden, and to start a consulting business. My goal is to do at least one thing from each list every day, along with exercise and get 10,000 steps over the course of the day. So far, I've been completely successful. I figure as a self-motivated, highly-productive person I'll be fine getting things done and not falling into a vat of apathy.

Tonight is pizza and "science-show-of-the-week" night, with a hopefully delicious quiche for me and Adam. Being at home also allows my culinary skills to flourish as I have more than 30 minutes to make meals.
