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!

    Thank you, thank you. The kids just keep adding to the greats in numbers! One side of the family has a few and the other I don't even know how many.

    I had to check the calendar. I thought maybe Easter was this Sunday. I have to buy cards and flowers. Nothing special planned for this weekend.

    Thank you so much for the Spark Goodie. I am struggling with some issues right now (the first anniversary of my son's passing is in 4 days) and just can't find my way back to being 100% social with my teams. emoticon
    I have promised myself to return within the next 2 weeks. I have to get past the 27th of March before I can begin to function normal again. I am feeling very anxious and now the insomnia has returned which you understand so well.

    Going for xrays and ultra sound on my shoulder first week of April then to see the orthopedist (hopefully for a cortisone shone) the following week.

    Take care and have a great weekend.

    Thank you for the hat and scarf goodie! Really need it-snow is really coming down. Calling for additional 5-10 inches! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thankfully we don't have that smog here. We can always see the mountains, but then I am on the other side. I love taking pics of the snow covered mountains. Always so pretty. When I was in my teens I used to Ice Skate at the Lake Arrowhead rink. I don't think it is there anymore. Sad, because it was outside. The only one that I knew of, at that time, that was outside.
