I have been working on pillowcases to donate to Card Care Connection. The social work, where my grandson was treated for cancer, has an organizati... Read more
New Dawn of a New Day!
I woke up this morning to the sounds of the birds chirping! The sun is shining brightly as it had been the past couple of days. Spring is in the air. Trees are blossoming, flowers are beginning to bloom. Spring and fall, these are my best two... Read more
It's hard to believe another year has passed in just a short time. I succeeded in staying active on Spark People. I haven't really lost a lot of weight, 8lbs., but it is a start and have been able to keep those 8 lbs. off. I'm still struggli... Read more
Five Year Victory
On 8/17/2007 our 7th grandson was born. Within three weeks of his life came the unwanted diagnosis of CANCER. He's just a baby, how can he be born with cancer? Baby Isaac had a rare form of cancer, infantile fibrosarcoma. Searches on the inte... Read more
This has not been a very good day for me. We were to leave for Memphis and the St. Jude Marathon weekend. Had the rental car reserved. And then came Cleon. What a bummer! This would have been our 3rd year down in Memphis. It's such a sight ... Read more
Today marked the end of the October Fitness Challenge and the Fall Harvest Challenge. My resolve is to keep at it and continue with my exercise programs.

Lesson Gracie is leaving me!
Lightning strikes! Every day, for some unknown reason, my dog, Gracie, leaves just a few pieces of food in her bowl. We have been laughing about it because of all the dogs we have had, not one of them left food in their dish. It never fails,... Read more
Haven't blogged for quite a while. I'm still hanging in here hoping for my aha moment. Had to share though that I am really into this exercising thing. Completed two sessions and now on my third. We do cardio/strength/balance all within an h... Read more
Yesterday we were still battling the rain, lots of it. I made myself go downstairs and ride the recumbent bike. Did 15 minutes and felt great. Went to grandparents' day about an hour away. Rain, rain and more rain. By the time I got back ho... Read more
Rain, rain, go away!
Yesterday was sunny and bright and I really felt motivated. Today, more rain. When will it ever stop. I saw that on cloudy and rainy days I'm really not motivated at all. Sunny days I want to sing and dance and get outdoors, or even get in m... Read more
Just Checking In
It's been a couple of weeks since I posted a blog. Today, president's day, the boys came over to visit. How I love their visits. We get withdrawal when we don't see each other for a week. We went to Chuck E Cheese and had a great time. Th... Read more
Slow to Get Back
Today I weighed in, 2.2 pound gain. It's okay. Thought maybe I would have gained everything back with not tracking and going back to my old eating habits. I'm fine with that considering what the past few weeks have brought. However, I can't ... Read more
