When I first joined this site, I wrote "Life goes on, and I'm tired of sitting on the sidelines watching." I've spent the vast majority of my life sitting on the sidelines...mostly because I just wouldn't allow myself to join in, to be happy, or to be successful!! Pretty dumb, eh? (Ya, I'm Canadian)

If John Glenn could go into space at 77, and Katsusuke Yanagisawa could climb Mt Everest at 71, even though I'm a 57 year old grandma, it's not too late for me either. It's not going to be easy, but my life alarm has been going off too many times lately for me to ignore it any more. My body is falling apart from abuse and neglect, and if I don't do something NOW, I won't be able to walk without a cane in a few years...definitely not something I want to have happen any time soon!!

I'm also going to get back to my blogging...I've been away from my writing from far too long, and at least the people here understand what I'm going through!
