It's very late but wanted to quickly touch base. I stayed up all night and kept the water at bay. Finally by about 7 AM the area was just damp and the rain had stopped. I took a chance that it wouldn't start up again and we were on the road b... Read more

I would say sparkfriends. Today has been really rough. I have been on the phone with dad off and on trying to be the strong one but crying when I hang up. I wanted to hug him so bad. I finally logged back in tonight and started reading comm... Read more

It wasn't because I missed the cardio workout! Even with these warm, sunny days, there are still some large mounds of snow in the yard. You also have to understand that I'm an animal lover. Poor Ms Molly was declawed when we adopted her s... Read more

Monday, March 01, 2010      8 comments

BLC has challenged me and I've forced myself to try exercises that I'd never thought I could do. When I might have just said, "oh, I'll just do my routine for my knees", I looked at my notepad listing the daily workout and decided to get my but... Read more
