We are having absolutely great weather. I didn't even need a jacket leaving the house this morning at 7am to go get the granddaughters. Yesterday Gwen and I walked to school to get Natalie because Old Dad needed the car for Senior Games. It was ... Read more

My Beck quote of the day: "You deserve credit for taking the time to prepare meals; eating all of your food slowly, while sitting down and enjoying every bite; sticking to your plan precisely; and filling in your Food Plan Chart."

I ran over 3 miles today! Counting the warm up and cool down that was primarily walking, I went a total of 4.33 miles. It was an almost pain-free run. Hooray!! I did the 5K after warm up in right at 31 minutes. That's way off my PR of 27:33, or ... Read more
Senior Games opened today, but my training is suffering. I ran about 50 steps and decided my heel was just too sore to run. Will try again tomorrow. It rained most of the day, so I didn't want to ride my bike. Hubby had the car for his Senior Ga... Read more

Indulge this grandmother. I have to share this true story.

Part of the reason I have been sleep deprived this week, the Sweetheart Dance on Saturday February 21st. Hubby and I really enjoyed, although getting up at 3am for the Gasparilla races that morning was a challenge!! Hubby looked really nice. Lov... Read more
I wrote a long blog with pictures this morning and it just disappeared when I clicked on "post blog entry." Sigh. I'll try again.
The Gasparilla races were so much fun! Here's a picture a friend of mine took of the pirate ship next to the c... Read more
My keys were in the legos. No kidding. Just when I wanted my keys to take Barb to Lake Hollingsworth, a beautiful area to walk or run, I could not find them to save me. After she left I spent over an hour looking for them, and there they were, w... Read more
Dear Barb is coming to Florida just when it is getting cooler and cooler. We have freeze warnings for Friday, so I suspect she'll feel right at home. Takes me back to the years (1992-1997) we lived in North Carolina . I grew up in Florida and ju... Read more
Ryan is now able to swallow pureed foods, but his speech is very limited. He has said "hey" and "hi" and he shakes his head yes and no. He seems to be having no trouble understanding speech. He gets frustrated trying to write. He is able to walk... Read more
