Just to brighten your day.
Today has been a typical Monday. Family lunch, grocery shopping, laze around the house and rest. I decided to check my e-mail and a friend had sent this link to me. This is sure to brighten your day a bit. Kids are just so great.

Drinking from my saucer
Spent another day taking Aleve and applying heat to my back. Skipped Boot Camp again. Sort of feeling sorry for myself so I looked through my old e-mails. I found this one my dear Dad sent a while back. I have no idea where it originated, b... Read more
Taking an easy day.
We had the grands spend the night and they keep you hopping. Don't know if it was building the Thomas track, sitting in the floor playing games, or chasing little boys around, but I seem to have pulled something in my lower back. It has been t... Read more
Missed a couple of days, but they weren't wasted. Had to work yesterday and was late getting home. Today I got to practice quilting on the new frame. Have a long way to go, but it is great fun. I put a practice top on tonight and will quilt ... Read more
We did our usual Monday things today. Had our family lunch out and took MIL grocery shopping while the housekeeper was here. Got some laundry done, and watched the videos that came with the quilt frame and machine. I forgot to get the tape f... Read more
Santa came back today ...
and put my quilt frame together. I still have to put on the leaders, but they are all ready to go. The screws for the light didn't fit, so gotta wait for replacements. Other than that it is ready to go.

Back in the saddle again.
DH and I got a mountain bike ride in this afternoon. The ground is thawing out and it was mostly a strength workout than a cardio one. The mud just clung to the tires and tried to hold us down. But it was nice to get back on, perhaps tomorr... Read more
Well, the best I can say is I did attempt to do the Boot Camp video today. The stability ball still isn't my friend, and my abs hurt.
But on a lighter note, DH and I had a date today and went to see AVATAR. It was great! I didn't get th... Read more
Back to work.
Got my Boot Camp done today, and I'm not too sore. I must be getting better. Even got squats, calf raises, shrugs, and lunges in while making dinner (hope no one was looking in the kitchen window). DD#1 is coming to stay with MIL tomorrow af... Read more
No Boot Camp today.
What a day. If it could go wrong, it did. If it could break, it did. Had to stay late, so no Boot Camp today. Perhaps I will try to get some extra cardio today. On a brighter note, 3 people asked if I'm losing weight. That made me feel goo... Read more
Short work day
Sunday is usually a quiet day at work, and today was no exception. I got a nice walk in going up one set of stairs, and down the next. Even managed some lunges and squats. We close at 5 instead of 7 on weekends, so got my Boot Camp video in w... Read more
Running late today
Just finished my Boot Camp video. The dips killed me! My shoulder doesn't like this one at all, but did the best I could. I'll feel it tomorrow.... Read more
"Scale Back Alabama" is starting again this year. My department at work needed one more member for their team, so I joined. We weigh in Jan 25th and the goal is for each team member (there are 4 per team) to lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks. We mus... Read more

Getting better every day
Day 4 of boot camp is done. My abs hurt and I have no balance. Gotta work on that, one more thing. It is all part of the journey to a new me, a better me.... Read more
