Cinderella review

Monday, March 23, 2015      16 comments

We have been babysitting extra days lately for a few different reasons, and that will continue next week. Yesterday was our first full day off in a few and my dear man's cold is well enough that he was up for a swim at the warm water pool- had... Read more

New glasses

Looking for book ideas

Monday, February 23, 2015      16 comments

My book group is meeting this week to discuss our latest book All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, an amazing book about a blind French girl and a young German man during WWII. Not an easy read by any means, but well worth the eff... Read more

Woo-hooooo! I am so happy! I let my gym membership go last summer when my dear man's health crisis was just beginning. I was not happy with the maintenance/cleanliness of my gym anyway, and I was unable to get there regularly. I was walk... Read more
