Taking care of 2 sick babies sure made for a long week. Not much movement, though, unless you count laundry, doctor visits, cleaning, etc. And my numbers sure were pathetic from it. Steps: 61564/68292, Minutes: 868/1083, Calories: 2913/339... Read more

I am not one to ask for help, but I sure could use some extra prayers for Sherry and Helena. Sherry still has a queasy stomach and worries if she will vomit again. Helena hasn't stopped with the diarrhea nor the vomiting. The night befor... Read more

It's May Day: four months of the year have passed. No, I haven't reached a bit of the goals I had set for myself. I keep over-scheduling, biting off more than I can chew, etc. I really am getting better; I have practiced thee word "no" quite ... Read more
