Had a good visit w/our grandchildren (the grown-up kids had too much to do!) It was fun and I'm glad we went. They live about 1,000 miles from us. The trip since then hasn't been so great, but I'm bearing up. God's grace IS sufficient.

Although my eating wasn't perfect today, I DID make a number of good choices. And that's not easy for me to do when we're traveling. AND....I used the treadmill before breakfast and again after dinner, for a total of 70 minutes! Ok, I just s... Read more
On The Road Again, We're Back on The Road Again
Ok, so I took liberties with the song. Yes, we're on the road again today. Going to visit our dau who DOESN'T live near us. She has a beautiful son who will be 4 on Wed, and our only granddau who is 7. sigh. Wish they lived closer!

My DH DID hit the DC traffic that I knew he would. It took him 1-1/2 hrs to go from Dullas airport to the Maryland line! We didn't get rain at our house until after 10 p.m., but DH said it was raining down where he was. At least he got home s... Read more
Today being Thursday, I cleaned the kitty room at the shelter - no need for more exercise after that! Came home and cleaned myself up, ate a tuna sandwich for lunch and went to school to watch my 10 yr old Gr-son's track and field day. He had ... Read more
Josh's ballgame went on long enuf that I didn't want to exercise after 8 p.m. His team won, 8 to 5. It was exciting to be able to root for them the last couple of innings. (They play 6)
Tyler's t-ball game was 'the usual' - some kids tr... Read more
Today was our last day helping out in Josh's 4th gr class. The good news is that his teacher is being 'promoted' to the 5th gr next year and gets to take her class w/her - and she's delighted that we're willing to help next school year, too.

Winding down on Saturday eve
Spent another long day in the car, but I hardly noticed it until we stopped. I knitted a little, then quit because if I knit for too long at a time, my 'tennis elbow' screams. ... Read more
We stopped in Myrtle Beach, SC to visit with the m-i-l of our eldest. She's such fun and we always enjoy seeing her. We're trying to talk her into coming to visit - told her we always have a room for her, so she can see her son, d-i-l, and gra... Read more
Tiring but fun day
Hi from FL again. I did well at breakfast - fat-free yogurt, a clementine and oatmeal w/raisins. Lunch was a BIG meal, so dinner will be much smaller. The resort planned a big Island buffet for last night, but due to the rain it was postponed... Read more
Monday in Southern FL
Hi y'all. We're in southern FL, and had an 'interesting' day - went to a couple of places we wanted to see, but turns out that both are closed on Mondays. ... Read more

We're on the road for a few days' vacation. Hmmm, do retired people get 'vacation'?
I'm working on m... Read more
a day of mixed emotions
Today is my Mom's b'day, and that of one of my s-i-l. I made and sent a card to Mom, as she lives at least 1600 miles from here and I don't even have a phone number for her.
My DH and I went to our last "Kid Writing" today, and that's sa... Read more
The rain DID stop yesterday morning, and by 11:00 the playing fields were mostly dry - due to the wind. We watched the boys play, and had a good time. Josh (10 yr old, catcher) caught a foul pop-up for the final out of the game, and his team w... Read more

We awoke to rain and WIND this morning, and the hi temp was probably early, early this a.m. While the rain is supposed to stop by mid-day, the winds are expected to be STRONG all day. I'm thinking my grandsons' ballgames will be cancelled, but... Read more
