Woke up early and headed out to the health fair. A lot of my friends were there and the services were inexpensive or free and quite valuable. I started with blood work and a diabetic eye exam. I wandered through the various tables with info... Read more

Today was quite long and interesting. To start my day, I had a warning light show up on my dashboard, saying my tires were low on air. I called my son and asked if he'd check it out when he came into town to exercise. He did and it was nothing s... Read more

Today was a pretty good day for another rainy gray day. This week fall has really been making an appearance. The leaves are turning and blowing off the trees. The deer are visible everywhere. It's a little strange though, they seem to be a bit s... Read more

Today started with wind and heavy rains. It was picture day at school and it was a Wednesday. We have a different schedule on Wednesdays because the entire school has class meetings to discuss bullying. We have a major focus on building stronger... Read more

Chaos, serenity, or drama?? Today was a teacher work day and I enjoyed the training sessions we had. They were right up my alley as they were part of a program we originally brought into our school about five or six years ago. It is called "Cap... Read more

I woke up only minutes later than I normally do so I'm slowly starting my day. I might go to the Taste of Romney and wander through making my lunch a series of tiny taste tidbits. Sips of wine, single nibbled, etc. Then I'll head to the fitness ... Read more
