I got married 36 years ago today. Today we are 6,369 miles apart but this year it is by choice and not something that was an easy choice. I do feel blessed to have my husband, we had a bad rough patch but we made it through. Today he sent me flowers and I love them. He ordered this special bouquet because the vase was purple.
Also I got a call that it may be a matter of days left for my father. My sister and mother said he sleeps all the time, he is not eating and he doesn't get out of bed. He is in a nursing home. My mother was going to make the funeral arrangements today so she is ready.
Kind of a Happy/Sad day today.
I haven't been here on SparkPeople as much as I should be but my personal opinion is family is more important especially when I don't get to see my family most of the year.
Last week I was busy with my daughter and older grandson but I did make it to the gym a couple of days. We went shopping so we did a LOT of walking. I ate healthy as well.
This week my youngest grandson is staying with me for his school break. There isn't really much to do with him up here because not much is open yet as this is a tourist area. It's still on the chilly side here and yes, I do have a snowpile in my back yard yet.
My thoughts, prayers go out to those hurt and killed in last weeks Boston Marathon bombing. It was such a horrible thing to happen.
All that today, April 11, 2013
The first picture is my front porch at 8AM
The second picture is the same porch at 3PM today

These were taken earlier this week:
my back yard-you've heard the saying "Where the sun don't shine"? This is where the sun don't shine!
Hopefully this won't last long!
I did go to the gym yesterday, (not attempting to drive today) and found out only 1 recumbant bike out of 3 work, only 1 out of 3 ellipticals work, 0 treadmills out of 2 work and of course someone was on the one working bike when I got there and did not get off until I was done too. I did lots of weight machines and free weights and I did have a GREAT workout!
Yes I do and it feels good! I went back to the gym today and my first real hard workout in over a month-unless you want to count the snow shoveling. The treadmills are broke-STILL so I got on one of the recumbent bikes for 15 minutes to warm up then went to the gym machines and free weights, back to the bike for a few more minutes. I must have worked one side more than the other one so I guess it's time for an Advil.
So it was another GREAT day in my part of New Hampshire. Looking forward to going back to the gym for more workouts!
