Preparing for Competition
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

Picture from Dance and More From Gasparilla
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

The Keys were in the Legos!!
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
Cool Days, Beautiful Days
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
Ryan continues to make progress. Thanks for prayers.
I'm really getting excited about our upcoming SparkPeople meet-up. We have found child care for Sunday so I'm available and can go watch Barb, her cousin, and my niece run the half marath... Read more
Not There Yet
Didn't do as well eating as I would have liked yesterday. Enjoyed the women's college softball game, though. Today I did better eating. It'll be okay. I'm trying to develop that NO CHOICE mindset every day, but I'm not there yet.

Last Eve, Today, and Tomorrow
Wonderful local team dinner last eve. The kale-chicken-sweet potato soup was heavenly and the jalapeno cornbread was very good. But the company was definitely what made it very, very special. I do feel very blessed to be part of this great group... Read more
