Wow, setting a goal on Spark really works. I absolutely did not feel like going for the walk. But because I set the goal, I actually did it. You actually can see where I went from some place on this site. (I am not sure how to access it yet. )
What is fun about Spark is I am always discovering new things. Ever since I discovered this "route" business on the fitness page, it is so much more fun to walk. I walk and then can track my route on the google map they have and then put the minutes in and add it to the "fitness tracker"

Thanks to everyone. It does make a difference when we read each other's blogs. I just read the one from one of our team members who talks about using a timer. A great idea I plan to put into practice as soon as I finish fiddling with the computer. Oh, no, I better use it for my computer time!!! Walk the talk, is that the expression?
Am very annoyed with gophers eating beautiful coreopsis that I spent good money on. Is this my biggest problem in life? Well, then, I should shoot myself!!! ha ha, just kidding. I cannot even read the paper anymore while I eat breakfast, the news is all so bad. When I was young, you never heard of these mass killings, or really any killing at all. I recall the worst thing that happened when I was a child was a runaway car that did kill someone. What must it be for young people to grow up with this craziness always around them?

Trying to keep up with the blog, even though been too busy and feel rushed. Cannot stand rushing around anymore, and besides, if I do, I forget things, and also it is easy to fall. Very aware of this since the osteoporosis diagnosis. My cousin (who is younger than me) fell and broke BOTH wrists. She was totally disabled, and had a wonderful husband who helped her. But I live alone. Then a year later she fell and broke her ankle and even now is not walking normally. It would be really really bad for my mom if I fell, broke something, and was disabled, even if it was only for 6 months. In fact, I do not know what she would do because the caregivers do not drive.

Went to cousin's house for another good day. But I am very tired. Since I re-tired, I feel like I am on a decline. I love retirement, but now with this slower pace of life that I love, well, there are just things I can't or won't do anymore. One is driving across bridges. I am so grateful that one cousin did the driving, I just did not want to do it. The idea of three women chatting in a car while I am driving 30 miles on a freeway, going through tunnels and over bridges, well, I just cannot do that anymore.
