NJ Sharing Network is integral in the orchestration of tissue and organ donation. I was not aware that a 5K is run to memorialize those who have died and donated organs and honor those who are living donors and those who have received organs and are still with us today. I received a letter from NJ Sharing Network a few months ago and decided to run. <BR> <BR> Anthony asked if he could run with me. Anthony im...

After I brought the boys to school, I walked more than 3 and 1/2 miles around town. Never before have I appreciated all of the little nooks and crannies that my town has to offer. I absolutely love the foot bridge and want to run down and up it on the other side every time that I approach; there's a neat stream beneath it as well. All around town, neighbors are remodeling t...

However, I changed my mind and returned to the field that I had wished to pursue since I was 10 years old: veterinary medicine. <BR> <BR> I had received an... Mon, 22 Oct 2012 03:49:24 EST Potty Training/Everyday Life We're in the process of potty training Nathan. He turned 3 last month and has been letting me know when his diaper is soiled. His pre-K teacher had suggested potty training and I thought that he might be ready, but he's been throwing tantrums every time I try to put on underpants, sit him on or stand him near the potty, etc. <BR> <BR> I'm going to purchase some Pull-Ups to see if perhaps he's agreeable to wearing those; Anthony's day school director had recommended not buying Pull-Ups si...
