I even fit in a one mile walk with a video on On Demand. <BR> <BR> Watching the end of season 1 of Orphan Black... Sun, 27 Jul 2014 22:21:16 EST Tired http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5747235 And I took an extended nap..yay. <BR> <BR> All the usual got done, laundry, breakfast with my friend, library, and puppy class. Thor ate two corners of my library book so I have to wait to hear how much I owe..not pleased with him but at least he did well with puppy class. <BR> <BR> Feeling a little less sad today....that is a good thing. Must stay away from the news.... <em>67</em> Sat, 26 Jul 2014 23:31:58 EST Friday...a good day with a sad ending.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5746624 Today was mostly good..Zumba, lunch with friends, a free spa event with a massage and a manicure..Then I got a note that my good friend and favorite Zumba instructor is getting ready to quit. She has been down for a bit and just feels that it is time. <BR> <BR> I respect her decision but I will miss her style and choreography and kindness and support. <BR> <BR> Sigh....and my puppy tried dragging my cat by the hair on his head. Both sad and mad, I think that I will go to bed.. <em>46</em> Fri, 25 Jul 2014 21:34:35 EST
