I walked out the door putting stuff in the car and that wind hit my face and I didn't go back in and change to run. I instead got my gym bag and came home. I walked on the treadmill where it was warm. I just got my 10,000 steps, barely. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone has a great day. Fri, 27 Feb 2015 09:18:13 EST Finally snow :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5883001 Well it started snowing at 8 pm. Some area's of the state (north of us) did get snow yesterday and we got about 1 inch overnight. Our roads here are clear for travel but within about 10 miles north roads are icy. They just opened I 20 back up to Birmingham, I think Heflin mountain toward Atlanta is messy but open, so getting ready to go to work. <BR> <BR> Yesterday I did get my steps in and I added my miles for the month. I am at 52 miles ran on Garmin and 72 miles walking/training. I... Thu, 26 Feb 2015 09:10:11 EST State closed for snow...No snow... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5882330 Well I am getting ready for work and looks like I will work all day. Yes, it may snow but likely just rain. The weather forecaster's will be happy if a flurry falls to confirm their overreaction. Yes it was terrible last year, yes we need to not put our kids at risk, but why cant they just say. Be alert and make a plan just in case and we will call it in the morning.... Now today they will probably have to delay school tomorrow because it will snow overnight. ok, RANT OVER. <BR> <BR> I... Wed, 25 Feb 2015 08:36:38 EST Scale my friend this morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5881637 My weight returned to normal and is down the two pounds I was shocked by yesterday so I guess sodium was the culprit. I am still up 2 lbs since Christmas. I feel better today about this but still trying to make sure I am not gaining as I am getting stronger. I got 4 miles in on my walk and plan to use the treadmill to walk before work today. I have a late evening so I need to get it done this morning. <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Tue, 24 Feb 2015 08:11:32 EST Weight gain again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5880972 OK I really did log last time and thought it was good. But gained again. I ate beef all weekend and this could be a culprit. I had not been able to eat it before now....? I a working out more and getting lots more miles. Is this why I am gaining. I should be able to eat more with running more shouldn't I? It's just very confusing. I may be gaining muscle? It may be time for a nutritional consult or sports medicine consult to figure this out. I am running and walking 3 or more miles ... Mon, 23 Feb 2015 08:04:31 EST A goal for next year! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5880354 Next year I want to run the Mercedes- Benz 1/2 marathon! I can do this. I can be ready and do this! I wish I had tried this year but next year I am setting this as my goal. I don't think I can run a full but I can do a 1/2 (It's only 5 more miles than my 15K) I can do it...I will do it! <BR> <BR> https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mercedes-Be<BR>nz-Marathon-Weekend/192235017516366 <BR> <BR> I guess I am excited watching the runners on the local station this morning and realizing I shoul... Sun, 22 Feb 2015 08:34:39 EST Run done for today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5879956 Got today's run in before the Alabama rain comes in today. Second wave is due any time now. We got three miles in. Got laundry going and dishes done. Few more loads of laundry and some sewing planned for today. <BR> <BR> Got my miles in this week and doing pretty good despite the cold. <BR> <BR> Hope you are keeping warm and having a great day. Sat, 21 Feb 2015 13:31:56 EST Ran as partner to rookie runner :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5879180 I had 18,000 steps after walking on an indoor track an hour at lunch and a 2 mile run after work. I partnered with a new rookie runner starting C25K last night. It was a good cold run that warmed by the end. I need new gloves. Mine essentially did nothing for me. The rest of me was good with multiple layers and my <BR> <BR> Climaheat top worked great with the gator up over my head and mouth covered from the cold. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/0/l906532665.j... Fri, 20 Feb 2015 06:03:12 EST Cold Brrrr in Alabama http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5878565 Single digits in north Alabama. 10 degrees here. Hard freeze warnings but NO SNOW and little ice. We will not be above freezing all day long. I don't know if we will run tonight but I suspect yes. It's is run three of the rookie runners club and I agreed to run with them tonight....maybe I shouldn't have. I am packed to run and have plenty of layers to run, hand held water bottle, plus my safety vest. Gotta clip on flash light in the car which was recommended. I need to get a safety... Thu, 19 Feb 2015 07:29:00 EST Keeping warm http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5877891 Since I have lost 100 lbs I tend to be colder and am the owner of many cardigans and now cuddle wear and silky new long underwear. I have learned to layer and keep warm. It really helps. I NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD DO THIS! I have been hot and then came hot flashes. Well thankfully most of the hot flashes are past. Generally I get hot associated with digestion of food and not hormonal hot flashes. <BR> <BR> I also use the many decorative quilts I have made instead of having them just for... Wed, 18 Feb 2015 07:31:31 EST ice http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5877249 Ice in Alabama is crippling. It didn't come as far south as our county according to the news but face book is covered up with ice reports on the roads and school is on 2 hour delay. <BR> <BR> I did the treadmill yesterday and calibrated Garmin and fit bit to be accurate. My first correction had fit bit reading too many miles. It is within a 10th most of the time now. with being the same during part of that 10th. I don't think I can get it closer than that. <BR> <BR> Stay warm out there ... Tue, 17 Feb 2015 08:19:40 EST Home today :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5876678 Glad to be home on this cold rainy day. At least no ice and snow, Alabama is not gridlocked. This is good news. Well I am not a fan of running in the rain just to show I am tough so I will visit the treadmill today and watch tv or listen to my audio book. <BR> <BR> Having success getting my steps in. Hope you are tool <BR> <BR> Mon, 16 Feb 2015 10:28:11 EST FIT BIT STRIDE is important! Don't cheat your miles... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5876043 OK all you fit bit users out there tracking your walks and runs...CHECK YOUR STRIDE LENGTH and record it in you settings. You may not be getting the correct mileage walked otherwise as I discovered yesterday. The steps are correct but the mileage reflected is not. I have been cheating myself big time. You can set up both walking and running stride length on fit bit one (I suspect for other devices as well). My 4.3 mile Garmin reading on a track that I know the mileage of, said 3.5 miles on ... Sun, 15 Feb 2015 08:53:35 EST Getting ready for the Alabama ice again. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5875502 Monday is a holiday and I will be home for the upcoming Alabama ice storm. Tuesday I am supposed to work but I guess that depends on weather and if it closes down the state again. I hope if it does fewer people are stuck away from home. At least school children should not be stuck over night at school like last year. Luckily I worked last year at an agency that sent everyone home before it got to bad. They got immediately notified by their state office to send everyone home. Both my hus... Sat, 14 Feb 2015 08:38:28 EST Home and Garden show and dinner http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5875002 Ok it's not flashy but it's my valentines date today. First we walk then, we plan to go to the Birmingham home and garden show. We need lighting and are planning updates to the kitchen. A stop at Sams at some point. Then dinner at Pompono's a new restaurant opened in Birmingham. This all sounds great to me! to others maybe not very exciting, but my hubby and I are what's important, and he asked me on this date and I am glad. <BR> <BR> So hope you have great plans for today and Valentin... Fri, 13 Feb 2015 09:40:24 EST My long day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5874311 The nice thing about this long day is I don't have to start until 10 am. This is going to make my late evening a less long. I will get a run/walk in this morning and then head to work. I am there fore not dreading today. I did run yesterday and got 15,000 steps. <BR> <BR> BTW look up Leslie Sansone house walking...lol....it's old fashioned aerobics like we used to do. It was fun when I could not get out of the office yesterday. I did her routine 15 minutes at a time through the afterno... Thu, 12 Feb 2015 07:41:33 EST Praying for a ongoing Great WEEK! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5873662 So today I probably should be upset that I don't have appointments this morning, but I am glad. I need to work and get paid but, I need to find that balance again. How to Keep exercise and work outs balanced with work and life. This morning I will have time to run (treadmill probably) and then head to work for a meeting then clients. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is my long day and I don't have morning appointments either. It's also ok with me. It is my long day and I am out till 9 pm. So I can ... Wed, 11 Feb 2015 07:11:33 EST Beginner YOGA http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5873008 I have now done the am and the pm yoga for beginners. So far I am enjoying it and I can do it. No I can't do the full stretch but feel like I will be able to. I feel good and can tell I am beginning stretching. I go to fit 2 dace tonight for Tuesday Toning (hand weights). So right now I have added the daily yoga and Tuesday Toning class for February along with my 10,000 steps and 100 miles of walking and running a month. I joined the 1200 club at the local runners club to earn a club j... Tue, 10 Feb 2015 07:41:54 EST Sleeping good and don't want to get up! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5872308 I fell back to sleep three times this morning when I am usually awake before the first alarm. I awoke at my normal time but went back to sleep. Luke's alarm rings 10 minutes before mine and I went back to sleep. Mine rings at 6 am and at 6:27 I awoke again. I had to force myself to get up. My husband has to be there a little early on Mondays because of a meeting. He's moving, I am up, we are getting going. <BR> <BR> I had 18,000 steps yesterday and went to bed on time having got my r... Mon, 9 Feb 2015 07:46:34 EST Yoga, Chruch, then Run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5871694 I am going to try a new yoga CD when I finish this, then we have Worship service. I plan a run this afternoon with my running buddy and my hubby is planning to join us. He walks as his knee's wont handle running. All in all it's a beautiful day today in ALABAMA but wait we could have flurries again next week. My closet is bursting as I have to have all seasons readily available to wear all winter. Noooooo I am not complaining just commenting. Yes give me weird weather instead of snowed ... Sun, 8 Feb 2015 09:06:23 EST Ran and happy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5871524 I met my running buddy this morning and got in a run! Whoo HOO! Otherwise its been a productive busy day. A beautiful day spent with my husband. So I have enjoyed it. <BR> <BR> 3 mile run, 16,000 + steps, dinner out. Sat, 7 Feb 2015 22:42:37 EST workshop on day off http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5870512 This means I don't loose income so YAHOO! but it means I loose a day off Bummer! I get cheep CEU's YAHOO! I miss my Friday morning run with running buddy BUMMER! I get to have lunch at TAZIKI's! Ok no matter how I spin this I would rather be at home and run today. I will dress so I can wear my walking shoes and get my steps in but it doesn't look like I will get to run today. <BR> <BR> I did get to run last evening and it was great! I only got 2 miles before it got dark but ran in to m... Fri, 6 Feb 2015 07:57:57 EST Hi Ho...Hi Ho...off to work I go! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5869867 Ok today is another early day. I got my monthly billing done on time this month Whoo HOO! I finished and mailed yesterday except for what I will deliver Monday and Tuesday next week. I took advantage of my travel time sitting in the car and completed progress notes on the ride home...YA! Today is a full day but not a late night. I am having to squeeze in appointments yesterday and today due to having to cancel last week because of the funeral. All is well otherwise. <BR> <BR> I have go... Thu, 5 Feb 2015 07:51:02 EST Steps and weights http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5869195 I had my steps as I visited the treadmill yesterday morning before arriving at Fit 2 Dance and did toning Tuesday. We used hand weights which I need to be doing and am not on my own so that was good. I ended up around 1600 steps for the day. Today I can't do treadmill but hope to walk at the church indoor track at lunch. I have a busy day and may have to finish my steps after work. Often a busy day means a lot of time at my desk and not a lot of steps. I realized after getting my fit bi... Wed, 4 Feb 2015 08:06:47 EST Home, cold, getting what needs done...done! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5868445 Yep, it's cold again. We were in short sleeves last week (not complaining about that) and I have the heater on again this week with the word flurries again spoken on the news! So I will face the treadmill and not call it a dreadmill this morning because I dread more running in that cold outside! Gotta get a run in this morning then off to work for the day. I didn't go to class last night because I was just tired after traveling all last week. I got my 10,000 steps in having walked at lu... Tue, 3 Feb 2015 07:54:38 EST A great weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5867672 Time to return back to work this Monday. I have been off since last Wed and it's been on the go the whole time. We were so glad to get home yesterday but then I still had four loads of laundry to do. I got it done and actually am glad to go back to work and get back on schedule. It was a good workshop and we had fun over the weekend with several good runs. Today its rainy but I hope to walk at the Community center indoors at lunch and have a fit 2 dance this evening. I made mostly good ... Mon, 2 Feb 2015 07:37:22 EST Play and more play! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5866872 I got my run in yesterday and by the end of the day had exceeded my 100 mile walk/run miles for January! WHOO HOO! I was not sure I would get it but I did. I will have to add this formally tomorrow today I mean as it is after 12 am) when I get back home. I am getting ready for sleep and we will be heading home after some sleep and check out. <BR> <BR> We have had a really great time. <BR> <BR> Well today I start my steps for today! Sun, 1 Feb 2015 01:19:27 EST Run and Play http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5866446 Today is a play day. I plan to get going for a run first then we get to play all day. Maybe a movie, definitely some casino play. <BR> <BR> I have come to hat buffet as I eat too much. I don't want to pay 25.00 for such a small amount of food and have left stuffed. Even 13.00 for lunch is a lot but that is the meal we have typically paid for a buffet. We have instead shared a dinner meal to not have left overs or had soup and an appetizer. We both have had WLS surgery and just can't... Sat, 31 Jan 2015 10:19:30 EST Training, run, then fun... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5865779 What a beautiful day it was yesterday on the Gulf Coast. I got out of the workshop around 3 pm and did a 3 mile run along the beach. Today I am through around Noon and plan a 3 mile run over the bridge. I didn't bring my cord so can't download and share the picture of the wonderful sunset over the water but it was glorious as we headed out to dinner. I ate too much at lunch (buffets are bad even though I selected good foods not carbs). We shared a blackened fish dinner which was just eno... Fri, 30 Jan 2015 08:54:20 EST Long day... new location http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5865026 Yesterday was a long day. It was not uneventful. We had gracious over night guests who are related through past marriage. Then I had a 5 mile run. I showered and finished packing in time to go to the funeral and grave side service. We spent important time with family. While the rest of the extended family went back to the church to eat and socialize we said our good bye's and had to leave. We got home, loaded up and hit the road for a 5 hour trip. I am here at the location for my wor... Thu, 29 Jan 2015 07:56:18 EST Today we remember and say goodbye. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5864327 Today we say goodbye to a fixture in our family, all of us (the next generation) and our children have been hugged, swung, aggravated, cheated at cards by, joked, comforted, sung to, and advised by Uncle Billy. He was a jokester, family man, father, Christian, naval man, brother, deacon, hard worker, husband, and widower. He had his faults and there are tons of story's that include the line and then Billy... All said with a smile. He was sought out and did not get on your nerves. He was ... Wed, 28 Jan 2015 08:54:58 EST Tuesday day all day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5863522 I am feeling tenderness and in my hips and hamstrings. I plan to run but hmmm....I don't know if I need to rest or move. I woke up thinking 5 miles. Just don't know yet. Once I am dressed and going I will have to re evaluate the plan. <BR> <BR> I have some Home chores this morning to get ready for guests, work this afternoon, and the visitation this evening for Uncle Billy. The funeral is tomorrow. We leave following the funeral for a workshop. I am heading for a workshop Thursday and... Tue, 27 Jan 2015 07:14:43 EST Run, loss, and love http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5862797 It was so nice running in the sunshine...but wait this is Alabama and the weather will change drastically again. We actually had sunny and 60 degrees yesterday. Today not so much. It rained last night (Surprise) but is gone this morning. Hey, the weather is never boring here. <BR> <BR> I got two 10 K runs this weekend and one 5 K (Fri-Sun) and enjoyed them all! Today it's a lunchtime walk and maybe after work run with my FIT 2 DANCE class. <BR> <BR> I wont get to go tomorrow as we ha... Mon, 26 Jan 2015 09:02:16 EST Lets go run http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5862267 Sun is shining, it's warmed up, lets go run!!!! <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! <BR> Sun, 25 Jan 2015 14:30:24 EST Good Morning and day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5861657 Good morning everyone. Got a 10 K run in today! The sun is shining! Laundry almost done. It's a good day! Sat, 24 Jan 2015 14:48:50 EST Good night all! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5861254 It was a really busy day but I really got pampered. It went something like this 2 mile run, tires rotated and alignment, hair cut and color, lunch out with husband (fish tacos), massage, nails done, picked up dinner (BBQ) and snuggle on the couch with the girls (dachshund and boxer). Time to get ready for a good night of sleep. I got my 10,000 steps. Its been a really nice but busy day. <BR> <BR> The hubby is at hunt camp till tomorrow night. <BR> <BR> Good night all! Fri, 23 Jan 2015 22:20:03 EST WORK and workout http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5860117 Headed to work with no break on the schedule today for a walk. I have a webinar at lunch....:( The upside is I get free CEU the downside I mismywalk! HM I wonder if I march in place I can get my steps in because they can't see me during the webinar I can see and hear them? Maybe can do! <BR> <BR> I do have FIT 2 Dance after work today and I am enjoying it. I will outgrow this class rather quickly I think but it is fun for this winter. <BR> <BR> Have a great day everyone! Thu, 22 Jan 2015 08:55:57 EST Two great morning home in a row! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5859490 Whoo HOO! The bad news is I didn't have paying clients so no income for two mornings. The Good News is I thoroughly enjoyed them. Going to run each morning and then getting ready and heading in to work by NOON. Tomorrow is a busy full day and if I had a little more notice about todays cancellations I might of moved some folks around. That comes with drawbacks when you change appointments around people tend to forget. <BR> <BR> Any how I have had two more opportunities to run 3 miles ea... Wed, 21 Jan 2015 12:07:45 EST Talk and Movie "American Sniper" and better http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5858503 Thank you for your comments yesterday. Yes it was about him, well and me too. He was feeling jealous and wants to feel asked first even if he isn't going. I quit asking him first because he had been saying no. ME, I just felt triggered by past history of guilt trips. We talked after I returned from a 6.22 mile run and went to the movies in the afternoon. <BR> <BR> American Sniper was worth the 18.00 admission for two. It was really good. The theater was so quiet, contemplative and f... Tue, 20 Jan 2015 07:58:10 EST Spirity of Jewish (Irish) mother http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5857716 Do you remember how mom could make you feel guilty with just a word or a dismissal. "No, go ahead" it was the tone, not the words that my husband said. He did not plan to walk today and I know this. He has not gone walking since thanksgiving and his hundred day challenge. He will start back efforts tomorrow because of the 4 month weight loss challenge! I have asked regularly and today when I said. "L and I are going at 8:15-8:30 he said "No, go ahead" with just that tone of censure and ... Mon, 19 Jan 2015 08:52:04 EST Studing Gods Word on tongues (not ment to debate only reflect) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5856940 I had a really full and wonderful day yesterday that ended with listening to some Christian acoustic guitar playing at church and then prayer service. We prayed for a particular family and person. The first prayer spoke in tongues. I began praying to block the spirit of evil and felt myself physically begin to withdraw from the unified body surrounding the person needing prayer. I do not believe in tongues and found it to propel me from the unified spiritual moment. So what do I do? Tha... Sun, 18 Jan 2015 08:12:59 EST Running indoors http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5856587 I went to the Community center and ran the raised track which circles the gym. I'm glad I went. I was alone an I don't know if I would have run two miles alone today. I would have been on the treadmill and it's just not as much fun. Cold outside, I know I'm a wuss, real runners run in snow and ice (or at least that's what they boast). I do feel the pull of the road and outdoor track to run but then I step into that cold and well I just don't have too! It is not worth getting sick over. ... Sat, 17 Jan 2015 17:44:31 EST Something new http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5855633 I was invited to a Fit2Dance last night and I am glad I went. I didn't really work up a sweat but It added 6,000 steps to my daily total and I did move and stretch area's I have been neglecting (more than I realized) just running. We did shoulders, arms, upper body moves and squats. It included some nice stretching too. I could tell I had tension in my shoulders and shoulder blades and neck when we started. So, I focused more on working it out rather than keeping up with her pace. It wo... Fri, 16 Jan 2015 08:59:11 EST Back down 1 lb ... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5854905 So right now I am wondering if it was just fluid retention. I did nothing different yesterday. I had not weighed in a couple of weeks so just didn't know. We shall see how the diary and rest of the week go. <BR> <BR> I did my 10,000 steps yesterday as well so that was good for stress reduction. I completed the third counties billing and have three more notes to last two small county invoices. I do minimal work for them they are further away. So I am satisfied with my work progress. t... Thu, 15 Jan 2015 09:04:03 EST Two pounds? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5854107 I have gained two pounds since Dec 1. Should I be concerned is the question I am asking myself. I will take inventory and do my food diary for a week. This will also require me to measure to know how much to record, which I have stopped doing. I may be eating too many carbs. They are so much easier to eat sometimes. I did have tidbits of candies over the holidays but that has stopped. Otherwise I may be gaining muscle. I am well in my weight range but don't want to have bad habits t...

Attempting to finish another's this morning before I arrive at that county to work. One more county and two other individuals county notes after that to complete.

Sun, 11 Jan 2015 22:11:40 EST Food, Work, Run and FUN! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5851177 I wasn't really surprised when I got the call today that something came up, when just yesterday she said she wanted to work....hm. Maybe not. So off to the office I went to do the invoices (which took the morning) instead of the notes. I was going to do the notes yesterday but didn't have to because I would do them while my helper did the invoices. So the day did not begin the way I would have preferred with a run today. I did get all the invoices done and still will have to do the notes... Sat, 10 Jan 2015 16:11:04 EST Slow start today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5850147 I slept in because I stayed up late last night. I am listening to my recorded Joyce Meyer and slugging around this morning. I will have to get going soon. Yesterday was my once a month long day and it went well but is always tiring. <BR> <BR> I have to do monthly billing this weekend. I also plan to run. Today is off to a late start and I have an appointment at 1 pm. It's time to get household got to get done chores organized and get moving. I hope you each have a Great Day. <BR> <...
