It's strange how things work out. Take how my DH and I met. I had moved to PA from Florida in Sept. of 1988. I February of 1989, I, my ex-husband, and his wife, went to a square dance where I met my future husband. Even stranger cause he wasn't even supposed to be there. He was supposed to be in Louisville, Kentucky at the tractor pulls, but because his brother was dying, he didn't go.
We danced in the same square dance set and exchanged phone numbers. A couple of weeks later we started dating, him traveling 60 miles to see me. He belonged to a square dance organization and so I joined too. We went to many dances together and one night he proposed in my apartment. The organization we belonged to held a convention every year, alternating between PA and Connecticut. It just happened to be the year for CT.
We made the arrangements and made 3 trips for blood tests, license, etc., before the actual ceremony. On August 26, 1989, just 6 short months after we met, we got married with over 200 of our square dance friends in attendance.
There have been ups and downs like with any marriage, but we love each other more now that we did then and continue to grow with God's plan. Funny how things work out, but God has his ultimate plan for all of us. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Last night I went to Pilates. I had eaten a salad with roasted chicken on it before class and the instructor was showing me some of the basics. Eating chicken was my first mistake. I usually get gas after eating chicken. I did a sit up and promptly blew out gas. I excused myself and said I was sorry. The instructor was nice and said that everyone has done it.
While in class with 2 other girls, I farted 2 more times. Again I said I was sorry but I was so embarrassed. The instructor mentioned that that was why she didn't eat before class. Little does she know that I can have gas at any time, not just after I eat.
I know everyone has gas from time to time and it's a natural occurrence, but it's still no less embarrassing when it happens unexpectedly.

My doctor prescribed some blood work and I am very pleased with the results. The last test had been done over 3 years ago.
My Triglycerides stayed the same 76
My Cholesterol dropped 35 points, from 236 to 195
My HDL dropped 16 points, from73 to 57
My LDL dropped 19 points, from 142 to 123
My Glucose/Blood Sugar dropped 6 points, from 86 to 80
My TSH dropped .35 points, from 2.28 to 1.93
All my numbers are either in the normal or below normal range, all good, except for the LDL, which is in the borderline high range. To be in the normal range I need to get it to
100 to 129. I'll work on it.

I want to thank EVERYONE for the birthday wishes. It warms my heart to see all the messages and goodies from everyone.
Today I actually have off from work, I think this is the first time since starting with the bank 10 years ago. I'm going to make up some cookie dough this morning before meeting our daughter-in-law and her mom at Red Lobster at 11:30 for lunch.
It's going to be an AWESOME day. Hugs to everyone!! Make your day just as awesome.
