So, I'm on a conference call Friday and my cell phone rings. It is my mother-in-law, who never calls me on my cell phone. She is hard of hearing and has trouble hearing me on my cell phone. I ignore the call and she leaves a voice mail. After my... Read more

End of Summer Update
Well, it has been an eventful couple of weeks. When I last updated, my Dad was in the hospital. I have not been checking in too much as his hospital stay was pretty time consuming. My sisters and I took turns staying with him and I had a busines... Read more

Running in the Heat! Or Walking!

Getting out of Maintenance Mindset
So, I did so well in the beginning with SP and lost weight. For the last 18 months or so I've maintained, but to be honest my weight has been creeping up. This past weekend, I said ENOUGH! I need to get a handle on things, I am not going backwar... Read more
