There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Kylie, I hope the bad weather passes for you. I know when we had a tornado a month ago I freaked out.. I was really scared. I hope you other stuff gets better too. I have had 3 husbands with drinking problems, they have to want to quit, I think something really bad has to happen for them to get it. I hope that it works out well for you.. I know it is very hard..You will get through it.. Have a wonderful Friday.. Tina emoticon

Thanks you!! I didn't go to the meeting. The weather is unpredictable right now with tornadoes around us. He's home and sober so I think that he may be into a full week of no drinking? Not sure about last night and I'm not asking. I have no problems ..at the moment....

I've done about 75 min so far today..I'm thinking hard on doing it again..I think the storms have passed. I hate to leave because if I do then J will walk to the bar to watch the game..right now he's staying home and hasn't had a drink in '5' days now! But he'll start again..I know him all too well! He even says he's not done..after he promised..

OK here it goes: I can do almost anything, I cannot use my left hand so push ups or weights are out, I can walk and am starting to do a little jogging, I think I will be babying this hand for the rest of the summer, I don't know how long it will take to heal completely.. But I know I don't want to take the chance of injuring it any more. I live in the city, but I have bird feeders out ,mostly humming birds.. I live right down the street from a nature preserve so I have somewhere cool to walk and watch the birds. Plus the path is sand so its good on the old knees.. I have a small veggie garden, And I have flowers planted everywhere I can fit them in.. How's that.. emoticon Lilac

I have way too much going on to do something different and be able to remember it..but you all do what you want. Exercise of some kind is good! Walking. I know that everyone can do that..right? We have lots of members but not everyone shares what they can and cannot do as far as exercise or if they have a garden or just love birds but live in the city and don't see them..??????
