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!

    Oh, yum!! You hit a soft spot with the ice cream cone!! Thanks for the goodie and the greeting. i had a good day at the casino, WinStar that is a mile long and themed with world cities. We had dinner at fish and chips in London. So tasty! The ice cream is just the topping needed.

    emoticon for the orchid, that was very thoughtful of you. My Mom was discharged this afternoon. She sprained her ankle when she collapsed but the tests all came back negative. I am just grateful that my brother was observant enough to see that something was wrong and caught her before she hit the floor. She could have broken bones if she hit the floor, or most likely the table or desk because of where she was. He said she was shaking so he was afraid she was having a seizure.
