Grrrrrr, I was just about finished with writing my blog and then something happened with the computer and it is lost. So I am going to make this one shorter. I went for a walk today, my first one in many many weeks. Only walked for 30 min... Read more

I ordered four dresses on-line in an effort to find one for my son's wedding coming up on Labor Day weekend. Two are going to be returned, a third is a back-up. Back-up you ask? Yup, that's because the fourth dress (the one that I really like... Read more

So much has been happening since October; I could use some time off to do nothing--or at least time to do what I want to do. Looking back, this is what my fall has looked like: 1. My grandson was born in October with medical difficulties.... Read more

Revelation: You're right---It's my choice!

Sunday, August 22, 2010      3 comments

Today while perusing other blogs, I found where someone had responded to a blog with......."your choice". Those were the only two words he wrote, "your choice". My first thoughts were "how rude", "he has no empathy for others", and "what a... Read more

Serious backsliding :-(

I have no problem fitting in cardio exercise. I enjoy walking outdoors when the weather, pollen and smog cooperates; otherwise I work out inside with Leslie Sansone's DVD's (love her programs). Strength training is just as important as the ca... Read more

I am finally starting to feel better. Hooray for antibiotics. It was such a pretty and sunny day yesterday and I've been cooped up in the house, so my husband and I decided to go to the baseball game. Now I haven't had a hot dog i... Read more
