Its been a pretty dull week here. Sunday I did score a major self-victory by over-coming my fears and going back to the Imanga House. We took motorcycles half-way (the half where the road is not so bad) and walked the rest of the way. The... Read more

We celebrated my first-born's 13th birthday today. I can't believe my baby boy is a teenager! (And I can't believe I am old enough to be the mother of a teenager!) Dale has autism, so in a lot of ways he has always been an old man in a boy's ... Read more

Last week I was so proud of myself for killing it with the walking. This week I didn't log a single km. Sick kids, doctors appointments, errands galore... I just couldn't seem to squeeze everything in that needed to be done. Not that I was to... Read more

I have diagnosed myself with virtual agorophobia. Yes, I just made that up, but its a pretty apt description of my problem. Lately I've been avoiding communication with the outside world, especially via the internet. I can't explain why. I m... Read more

I have done very good getting my walking in 3 days in a row. Tuesday I almost weenied out because of the rains. But then I got irritated with my husband and decided that I NEEDED a walk, rain or shine. So I packed Patricia in the baby carrier... Read more
