We had a great Christmas. I'll post photos when someone in the family gets theirs to me or online. But in the meantime, it was wonderful to have the house full of people, food, and fun. I loved seeing Scott carrying MIL up the steps and... Read more

"I wish I could run with you." "You're so lucky to be able to run." "I'm glad you are healed....count your blessings that you can run again." All nice enough sounding comments. And honestly meant. Especially the part about wishi... Read more

This isn't going to be a long one. But I wanted to thank you all for your kind thoughts and words yesterday. MIL seems to be doing better. When we went to see her she actually spoke about three words and the swelling had gone down considerabl... Read more

You know how sometimes you just get a feeling about how a day is going to go? Well I have one of those feelings today. And the feeling is that today isn’t going to go well. On Wednesday, as Scott was driving me in to work he noticed the b... Read more
