    Today, Brad, the foreman for B-Dry systems, came to clarify everything about the job, look the property and basement over, and was very patient about explaining options for exterior drainage. Just before he arrived, I read an e-mail from my dear friend Connie in Munising. She is the one that I s... Read more

  • Knees and body alignment

    9/27/2017 1:14:51 PM, by SIDURIANA

    It's okay to rest when you've over done it a bit. I hiked all day yesterday and today my poor knees are sore. So I'm at home resting on my 49th birthday. I don't feel guilty about it, I feel good that I am taking care of me instead of "taking one for the team" Sometimes we get caught up in our respo... Read more

    I cannot emphasize what a wonderful day today has been so far! TO 99 9/10% of humans, it would not be a big deal, BUT to me it was great. Some people never have a good day, but for me, the little things that most people take for granted, do not happen for me on any given 24 hour segment. I ros... Read more

  • First Goal Weight Met

    9/26/2017 8:22:15 AM, by WINACHST

    Well, I weighed myself using my home scale and according to that number, I have reached my first goal weight. Now, my main objective is to hold it rather that try to lose more. I do have excess body fat (hips and thighs) that I will like to see go bye-bye. I ran the report for my weight and saw... Read more

    Hi all... There are so many things happen in in my life right now that I just wanted to touch base with you. The best thing is my return to God and the church. I haven't gone to church in 6 years. I couldn't do it after my son died. I am so happy now to be back and the fellowship of other C... Read more

    9/24/2017 7:59:03 PM, by WINACHST

    I was away from home and weighed myself on a different scale. That scale registered below my first goal weight. Does this count, I think that scale actually registers about 1 pound less than my home scale. Felt good thinking I actually went beyond my goal -- heehee... Read more

We went to Salvation Army and dropped off another packed carload of items from the basement on our way to the grocery store. Back home, I could not keep my eyes open, fell ... Read more
