I want to stay motivated and maintain a healthy lifestyle so that I can enjoy my retirement & travel with my DH. I've seen too many people retire and then just go downhill, energy and health-wise. This CAN be the best time of my life but it'll take work and commitment. I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    We have "landed" and the roads were good with "gentle" traffic. Tried a new route and it was a good one. All except the rains! One gas atop, we went in to the BR and buy a chocolate milk, turned around and could hardly see the camper. Poor MsK and Daisy were alone but no thunder or lightening. Pushed a lot of rain under the store's door as well. Off to happy land!! It's time! God bless!

    Sorry it's so late with me responding to you. We indeed did share ice cream today and it tasted soooo good!! We had out last campfire with our SP friends mini rally. Have a wonderful weekend together. Moving on down the road to the RGV and hoping our camping will hold together long enough to get there. thank you so much for the tasty goodie!!

    They should put depends as a goodie---LOL---luckily, as an assistant, I can be late to class or just get up and leave if I really need to---but when I was subbing, I hardly drank anything because I never knew when I would get a potty break---and it gets me when the kids complain if they can't go--not like the teacher can just leave--unless someone like me is in the room. I feel so much better after the last 2 days of drinking more---have energy at the end of the day. But no beer--can't get that nasty stuff past my nose!

    Thanks for the water bottle---feeling better today with drinking more fluids--the only issue is that I need to go to the bathroom more often so am late to classes---good thing I can't get detention. LOL

    Being a gypsy is what we love to do! Travels are great! Our only problem is our camper is falling apart right around us!! This hasn't been a very good trip with all that has happened. Once this campout is over, we are heading directly to our TX. home and see if this rig can be repaired. If not we, will head home to buy a new one. Hope you are having a great start to the week.
