Our plan for the day totally changed. We were supposed to go see our two oldest children and do some errands in that area, but the plans fell through. So my husband decided he wants to take me out for Valentine's Day. He is really so sweet. He r... Read more

Ok, sorry sparkpeople, but this is just bugging me! How can someone track 840 minutes on the first day of February??? I thought we could only track 120 a day. Also, how does one track over 3840 fitness minutes in the month of January when you co... Read more

10 year anniversary
I just realized today that it was 10 years ago that I began my walking journey. I started walking because of what was going on in the lives of my family and that was the only way I could think of to deal with all I was feeling. What was a hard t... Read more
While I was out walking today, and looking for golf balls as is my habit of late, I began being stalked by a rather large bug. It looked kind of like a fly, but about an inch long. Buzz, buzz, buzz by my head and all around me! I thought I got r... Read more
