One Grandma's walk across the country

I enjoy living and intend to do so for a long time. I enjoy spending time with my family and enjoy doing things with them. I want to continue to be active with my children and grandchildren. I don't want to be the old fat granny who can't do things because I don't feel well enough.

I want to fit in seats, theater and airplane and I want to be able to run up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial one more time at least.

I have walked across the nation twice that I have recorded and intend to do it again this year.

Great puppy pictures!! Did your DS go to the Univ. of TN then? I did too! It's changed so much since I was there though...much more exciting now! You mentioned your grandfather was born somewhere here too - do you still have family in TN?

Hi I was just reading your profile and it jumped out at me that you have walked the distance of walking across the nation twice. That is absolutely amazing. You must wear out walking shoes very quickly.

I hope you are enjoying the BLC 28.

I am still learning how these challenges work and I'm trying to put time into fitness.

Enjoy your day.

Hang in there WG - I'm with you on feeling out of the loop. I do love seeing your familiar name in our DDT posts, and I love the photo you've got up now. What a little doll! Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers every chance you get.

Thinking of my spark friends on this weekend we celebrate mothers. I also like celebrating my 'sisters' of the heart- my women friends who inspire me- support me- and bring such bright light to the world. I hope you are taking care of YOU- and supporting yourself with all the gifts you bring to the world around you.

Thank you for the goodie. I don't know how you work those long hours. I am hoping this is my last year, maybe it's time to find something I don't wear too many hats. I just don't have time to start looking now. Hope you have a great week!
