Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

You definitely should get that checked out, remember my icky stomach thing that hung on forever was actually a growing appendix. I doubt yours is that, but I doubted mine was that too. We just never know what is going on and whether it is serious or not.
Sounds like you have had some really big plans this summer. Clearing all that fence line is a lot of work. DH and I used to build fence a lot in the summer for ranchers, a lot of it was replacing existing fences. We have not done that in a few years. It's tough, but it was fun working together, I kind of miss it. I have not worked in my yard at all this year. Pretty much let it go. The boy has mowed and watered, but I didn't plant any flowers this year, I knew there would be no time or water to take care of them. Then the monsoon rains came-they would have been watered even without me, but I didn't know that. We are actually looking for monsoon rains today, with flash flood warnings in affect already this morning. It is a cooler day here as well.
I better get moving. Need to write out a few checks before the mail comes and then get to my exercise time. Enjoy your day and you are doing wonderful!!

Thanks for stopping by Gail, how have you been? Things are settling down here now, finally. School will be back in session next week. My boys are looking forward to it, although my oldest would argue with that statement. He will be in 8th grade, I can hardly believe it.
The bike is great, and if I want I can turn it around really easily and watch out the window instead of watching the tv. I have to admit, I have a super bad addiction to tv, so if I can be doing something besides sitting on the couch while enjoying my shows I will. Occasionally I like to sit and watch thunderstorms over the canyon though, that would be an excellent time to turn it around and enjoy the show.
Let me know how things are in your life.
Michelle
