I looked during the winter just to see what was out there and there were many apartments. I guess because people don't like to move during the winter. I started earnestly calling for apartments and looking last week. I have called 6 landlords and had 5 appointments to look at places. All 5 landlords called me and said they accepted deposits before I could even look. One apartment looked great by the pictures, too. A little disappointing, but hey I just started loo...

I kind of feel sorry for the boys though, I was born on New Year's Eve and it is tough. My birthday parties always had to be help after or before my birthday or no one could come.

Fri, 30 Dec 2016 10:23:39 EST Maintained for 4 years. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6286520 Four years ago today I reached my goal. Yes, I have gained weight, and then lost weight again. Right now I have to lose about 8 pounds if I want to get back to what I then considered my goal weight. I felt better at a slightly higher weight even though it was at the high end of the "healthy" BMI. I asked my Dr. about that and he said to not be concerned with that. As long as I wasn't overweight and felt good and my labs were good I was fine. Even the weight that I am know would be okay ...

At least my body doesn't feel like it went through the spin cycle. My neck is a bit stiff and I still can't life my arm that high but I am sure it will get better. My headache is not as fierce. <BR> <BR> I surprised myself yesterday by sparking and falling asleep in the chair. The phone was ringing and it was my brother Mike. We were suppose to be at his house last night. It was about 4:45. He called to say Merry Christmas and h...

She is buying a popcorn maker for her daughter, which was never used. Why not spend some money on the gift and get what a kid wants, like quality toys, maybe that are educational.
