Kathy that is so exciting that you finish with a better time by 1:15 minutes! Wow you were flying. I want to be able to run someday, but I really need to put more effort into it. I would love to run with you someday.

BTW, You are awesome too!!!

I am going for a streak of a mile-a-day in May... wish we luck!

Barb I haven't done the Saturday downtown stroll in a very long time. I Need to check out downtown to see what's changed. Hope you enjoyed your dinner out.

Christine thanks for sharing your pictures on your blog. I need to start carrying my camera, but I am not a very good at taking pictures. The shots I see with my eyes never get captured on the camera. Like the your osprey in flight I would of just got a blurring blob in the sky.


5k run completed. I beat my best time by 1:15 minutes. When I saw the finish line I tried to push a little harder increase what little speed I had. Could not do it. I spent every bit of energy I had, nothing was left in the tank. I doubt I can improve my time much more. I have very short legs I take 2 to 3 steps to most people one step. I can't believe I started running after I retired. My finish time was 29:59.

And remember all you Idaho Sparkers

DD and I took a walk downtown this afternoon. Gorgeous day and just enough of a breeze to keep it comfortable

Now DH and I are going out to dinner. Don't know where yet. Have a great rest of your day!

I walked the Idaho Potato half-Marathon a few years ago with a fellow Sparker. It was a gorgeous walk and we had a great time! I probably won't do it this year. I'm signed up for the Race for the Cure next weekend and a Kuna 5k the weekend after that.

I walked to El Gallo Giro in downtown Kuna today for lunch. It's about a mile and a half away and took about 30 minutes each way. When I got home, I sat down on the couch to read after and fell asleep! Apparently I need to rest more!!

Christine, great job on getting out for a walk! The next few days are going to be perfect for that!

Kathy, I still enjoy playing, but I know my days are numbered. Parts of me ache that didn't ever ache before and it takes longer to recover after each game. Until that time comes, I'm going to enjoy what I can!

Kathy,

Love the picture and quote you posted!

Also, wow that is good info on the bike recall. I decided to bag looking for a bike right now. It is much more important for me to get a daily walk. I did get in a 1.5 mile walk in this morning. Oh and good luck and have fun on your 5k tomorrow!

My sister was better today but it has been really hard for her to lose Reese.

Hey, Barb good job on the win and for getting your ear checked out with the doctor. I know ear problems can make you dizzy. Hope you are on the mend soon!

Kelli you might have to buy a helmet for blake to protect his noggin. I hope you both get better soon.

Christine I haven't walk yet today being rather lazy, I will get in a short walk this evening. Trying not to push my legs to hard today I have a 5k YMCA run in the morning. That's my excuse and I am sticking to it. I too have heard of trek mountain bikes. Right now they have just recalled a lot of bikes because (I think this is the reason) the front brake activates or something stops the bike on it own, bringing the front tire to a dead stop and sends the rider over the handle bars. The recall was just on the news earlier this week.
So sorry to hear about the losses. You have to just stop and remember the good times you shared so you can smile through your tears.


Barb hope you feel better soon. Happy to hear you won your game. Sometimes I miss playing but not much. Just got to old and out of shape to play. Now I am in pretty good shape, better then when I played, but the age as only got worse. :>)

Kelli, you and Blake are not having a good week! Poor baby!

Christine, hugs to your sister and Jen.

I did make it to work yesterday. Mostly because I wanted to play softball! I played and we won! I even played fairly decently! Then I came home, did some charts for work and then went to bed. Probably overdid it. I have a doctors appt today (unrelated) so I'll have her check me out. Might be an ear infection. :(

Hi everyone, I am going to try to have the best day I can but I am very sad today. My dear friend Jen's DH passed away yesterday and also my poor sister is extremely sad that her beloved dog Reese passed away yesterday as well.

Barb, I hope you are feeling better today. Did you make it to work?

Kelli (well or anybody out there on this thread) do you know a good brand of mountain bike? I have heard the name "Trek" but I don't know anything about bikes... :( Sorry about Blake's nose, hope he doesn't get a bruise.

Hi Kathy have you already gone on your walk today? I haven't yet but I got in about 6 + miles yesterday. My legs aren't as sore as I thought they would be.

Good Morning,

My day is going much better, I remembered to get Blake all the way dressed. He did remind me this morning, but then I somehow stepped on him, and banged his nose into the car door. Poor guy, he got an ice pack at daycare to fix his nose.

Christine – That isn’t too bad for the kit. Are you going to look for a bike? emoticon

Barb – OH, I sure hope you feel better today. No fun to be sick. If it is still hanging around today go to the doctor. emoticon

Too funny! Poor Blake! Hope you can make it up to him!

I do have a game tomorrow. This time we are at Ann Morrison. I stayed home from work today. After I put in my contacts, I started to feel light headed. By the time I sent a text to my boss, the world was spinning and I was sweating. Still can't stand up for very long. Slept until 6:30, then from 9:30 until 12:00 and then another nap around two. Planning to be in bed early. Hope I'm up to both work and game tomorrow!

Hi Everyone,

Kathy, you summed it up perfectly. That was T ball in a nutshell. LOL....and I think he likes it.

Christine - I love those gas powered bikes. They are pretty fun. We have a guy in the neighborhood who has one.

Barb - How are you? Do you have another game tomorrow night?

I have been busy at work putting out fires. Sigh... it should slow down in a couple of days.

FUNNY BLAKE STORY: So this morning daycare calls:
Daycare: Is this Blake's mom?
Me: Yes
Daycare: Blake is SOO mad at you right now?
Me: Uhho, is he sick?
Daycare: No, you forgot to put on his underwear. He is SOOO embarrassed.
Me: Oh my gosh, do I need to run and get him some? I can't believe I did that.
Daycare: No, we have an extra pair for him, I just wanted to let you know that he is mad at you and thought you could use a good laugh today.
Yikes, total mom fail this morning.

Hiya Kathy, well my dh says a person can use the bike either way... gas powered or people powered. He wants it for quick trips to the store and things like that. BUT personally I just think he just wanted one! ;) He now wants to build one for me... but I don't have a bike so I guess I will be looking for one!

No we didn't make it to Barber Park, I ended up doing all the wash around here and just housework in general. I hope to get there tomorrow. Did you go do anything? I also didn't like all the wind today. I know, picky, picky! :)

I love your take on T-ball, so cute!

Christine my Question is: does putting a motor on a bicycle defeat the benefits of a bicyle. Or is the benefits the money saved on gas to go to work. And you can't buy a motorcycle for $180. So the conversion is a bargain. Did you get to Barber park today.

Kelli I hope your in laws are doing better. I love watching t-ball. The little girls picking the dandelions and the littl boys chasing the butterflies. And look up surprised when people are shouting go get the ball. I find it quite entertaining.


Hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful day.

Hi Kelli, sounds like you and Blake had a great time at T ball. I haven't gotten to hanging any flowers yet but I bet yours look pretty!

Thanks for the nice comment on my blog, I hope to be doing more of the picture type blogs.

Sorry to hear that your FIL is having issues. :(

Kathy, wow that is interesting about Lake Rosevelt! So glad everyone was okay!

Okay my newest news is my DH took an old mountain bike and made it into a gas powered bike! Yep all the neighborhood guys had to come out and look at it. It's pretty cool! One of the guys works at Micron (about 10 minute drive) and he def wants one! It only cost $180 for the kit so it sure is a good price! :)

Hi Everyone,

I had a really good weekend. I finally got my hanging flower baskets, and played T ball. It was fun, a little bit wild, and a little bit disorganized but still fun. I am looking forward to the second game. Little Blake did really good, he hit the ball twice, and did pretty good as a fielder. He finally got tired (the games are right at nap time) and wanted me to hold him in the outfield. :) So I did.

Hi Kathy - Nice to meet you!!

Barb - Oh I love Texas Roadhouse!! The rolls, the loaded potatoes.... and the steak. My favorite. It sounds like great family time.

Christine - What a great blog, and great pictures. It looked like you had a really nice time.

It is gorgeous today so maybe some outside time when I get home.

My inlaws are having some issues, so Blake has been in daycare full time last week and this week too. I am hoping to get it all resolved by the end of this week, but it sure isn't looking like promising news for my FIL.

Have a great rest of the day everyone, and I will try to get some T ball pics downloaded.

Hagerman valley is a pretty cool place. I worked with 2 ladies that said that was where they were moving when they retired. One is still working and the other was true to her word, she moved.

Haven't done Texas Roadhouse prime rib, usually get a 6 oz steak and make 2 meals out of it. My biggest problem with going to the Roadhouse is the hot rolls they set in front of me.


It is not a day trip, but off the beaten path in Idaho is a lake called Rosevelt. It once was a town, until there was a rock slide at the end of the valley blocking the creek. Don't worry the water didn't rise very fast so everyone got out. For years you could see the houses under the water. Now most the logs have came loose. I was told the water level is starting to drop so maybe before I am 110 I will be able to walk the actual street of the town.

I am not a native of Idaho either but close enough. I think my parents moved back to Idaho before I turned 2, not really sure don't remember.

Barb, I think that is so cool that you are from Hagerman Valley! It is sooooooo pretty there! Oh and as far as help with camping, both of my rigs are ready to go at a moment's notice and then all we have to pack is some food! Oh and leave anyone not willing to work at home :)

Tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful and in the 80's I think I may have to plan a trip to Barber Park :)

How fun that you played the very first game on Willow Lane! It sucks that they caught a fielding error on film though. Bummer! If they had been filming Thursday night, they would have found a few more errors. Oh well, it was fun!

Christine, I grew up in the Hagerman Valley. It is a gorgeous area. Not a big camper - or glamper - any more. I loved it as a kid. Harder to do when I'm the adult and have to do all of the work! Ha!

Kathy, I do love Texas Roadhouse. I always order a large prime rib. Then I bring home leftovers for at least one or two more meals. This time, I got the 16-oz prime rib and made three more meals from my leftovers. Soooooo good!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Thanks for checking out my blog Kathy! I love being able to get out and about Idaho! So many things to see and do. My Dh just got me a book called "The Day Hiker's Gude to Stanley, Idaho" and I hope to plan a trip there when it is a bit warmer! LOL I also have a book called "Idaho, off the beaten path" it's a guide to unique places here.

Your my age Kathy so you are NOT old! tee hee. Wow that is so interesting that you played the very first game on the willow lane field! I've been here so long I feel like a native but I am not :( Boo hoo!

I LOVE the Hagerman Valley and hope to get there soon! I am guessing that will be one of my first camping trips. Does anyone else camp (Glamp?)

Christine I enjoyed your blog and pictures, I see a trip to table rock in my future.

Barb you went to my very favorite restaurant I love the Texas Road House. This is how old I am I played in the very first game ever at willow lane field. I was on the news and of course the film shows me committing a fielding error, also the first for the new fields. Been a lot of years since I played.

Have a great day everyone.

It ended up being 18 plus a baby. We had three tables at Texas Roadhouse. It was good fun. I got one photo of my brothers and nephew giving my son love. He enjoyed it....not!

Today, other than dinner, was laid back. Very little work at all. Felt good to relax. I'll probably pay for it tomorrow trying to get caught up. Oh well.

Everyone enjoy the last day of the weekend!

Wow Barb, sometimes I wonder how you keep up with everything! So glad you enjoyed your softball game! We were all rooting for you!

Hi Andrea! That's is super that you guys got to go to lunch!

I like the ideas that guy told you about too!

Oh I bet you can't wait to see your older brother! Please try to get a family photo you can put on "We are one"! BTW Restaurant meals are the best for over 15 people, takes the work off just one person!

Kelli, please enjoy your weekend!

The weather was fantastic for the game!!! We didn't win, but I didn't hurt myself so that's a win for me. I Googled the directions and as soon as I turned off State Street, it all came back to me. Willow Lane is a gorgeous place for softball!! Even with the geese in the outfield! Ha!

Christine, I checked out your blog. Beautiful pictures!! I'm jealous that you got to go out and walk in the weather.

Kelli, what tests are you taking? Trigonometry? tee hee

I had lunch with Andrea today. I met her downtown close to her work. Then I stopped in at Taters to look for souvenirs for our visitors. The proprietor told me that potato soup mix and chocolate covered potato chips are big sellers for Japanese tourists who come shopping on their own. I'll talk to the boss and see what he says.

My older brother is coming to town tomorrow. He is coming to meet his grandson who was born about one month ago. He would have come sooner, but he was in Afghanistan until last week. Since he's coming to town, my dad and his wife, my mom and my other brother are all coming to dinner. Gonna be a big family dinner! And, no, they are not coming to my house. We are all going to meet at a restaurant. My nephew, his wife and baby might join us too. That will put us at 15 people!!! Making reservations first thing!!

Have a great weekend ladies!

Hi Everyone,

Christine: The whole reason I had kids was for parties and snacks. LOL... no they really don't have any guidelines, but I plan to do something fun since it will all be 3 and 4 year olds. I am so looking forward to T-Ball.

Barb - Good luck tonight. Willow Lane is really easy to find, it is right off of State Start and you turn at the Burger and Brew. Follow the road all the way back, it is quite a ways down there and you will see the ball fields on your left. There is lots and lots of parking.

I sure hope the weather holds for this weekend, but doesn't look promising.

I have been doing testing all day, and I so need a break. I have been at it since 8 this morning, but so far passed all the tests.

I'm fully expecting the weather to be cold and windy on Thursday...since I have a game! Need to Google how to get there since it's been a long time since I've been to Willow Park. I have a basic idea, but need to have directions or I will stress the whole drive!

T-ball will be fun! Hope the weather is nice and this wind dies down!

Christine, I would definitely say start with the parking lot. Will give you an idea of the terrain and you can decide if you want to do more.

Time to sign off. Not getting to bed early like I had hoped, but at least I can get to be mostly on time!

I did go to Lucky Peak and I was so surprised to see lots of families there already. Playing catch, fishing, kids playing in the sand, picnicking, the whole nine yards! We have a pass on both of our cars, it cost $10 per car and helps support the parks. We go there quite a bit!

T-ball sounds fun for Blake, is this his first year? You doing the snack sound good! Seems like you know your way around the kitchen pretty darn good! Do they have guidelines for what to bring or?

Don and I just spent 1 1/2 hours mowing and cleaning the front yard. You are right Barb it does look great!

Hope it is not windy tomorrow as I want to go to Wilson's ponds in Nampa. I do not care for this wind. :(

Hi everyone,

Just a quick check in. Sunday starts Blake's T-ball, I have his schedule and everything is ready to go. I think I am more excited than Blake. LOL... so it will be interesting on Sunday. I even signed up for snack day.

Barb - Pink hair is awesome!!

Christine - did you go up to Lucky Peak yesterday?

You will look great with pink hair Barb! I have heard that is a fun race!

I was wondering about going down the hill... ummm maybe I will take the parking lot at the back side first :)

Christine, the hike up Table Rock is about 3 miles, depending on which trail you take. The girls and I didn't rest much and it took us 37 minutes. However, there is no reason to rush up the hill and there are lots of places to stop and rest. There are a couple of steep spots...coming down is almost harder than going up. And, there is a parking lot on the back side that is close to the top. Can always start there if needed!

Thanks for the link on races! The next one we have planned is the Race for the Cure. A group of us will be wearing pink wigs. One of the ladies I'm walking with was diagnosed with breast cancer, had a double mastectomy and reconstruction. She is currently cancer-free. To honor her, her FIL will be wearing a pink wig - long, pink hair! And he's a manly man so you know how much he loves her!!

Barb, Table Rock is a hike I have never done yet! How hard was it and about how long did it take you?

Kathy are you going to join BLC again?

Wow, Spring is turning out to be a busy time of the year for me! So much to do and so little time it seems. Only worked in the back yard for half an hour though.

Hunk and I went to the grocery store and we got lots of good stuff to eat! We got a three pound bag of tangelo's for 3 bucks! My find of the day was sugar free cherry preserves! I can't always find them and I love cherries of any kind!

! got my measure for last week! 5 outdoor walking miles! I want to build up to 12 miles but the weather isn't always the best so I will just stick to 5 for now. :)

Hope everyone is having a great evening!! emoticon

I'm so happy that B, lake is feeling better!!! Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow, Kelli.

Christine, I took a walk with DD today after dinner. We're planning to climb Table Rock tomorrow while it is still breezy, but before it gets windy! Wish us luck!

Kathy, thanks for the link!!

I think we will offer to take them on the MK Nature Walk one night and to The Village another night. I might check with the city of Boise to see if they have a tour/map that I can take them on. Show them the view from the Train Depot, and then whatever other spots there are to see. If you have any ideas, I'm open to them!!

So Happy about this weather, I am waiting until it gets a little warmer and then I am going to take a nice long walk! :)

Thanks Kathy for the info on the BLC28. I am currently on a team called "Camp WannaBeFit" and it seems to take up most of my time, but I will certainly check out the BLC28 anyway. Sounds like it really helped you!

Kelli I am so glad that Blake in on the mend!!!

Barb did you find something to do after work for all the people who are coming?

Hi All,
Finally the first normal day I have had all week. Blake is feeling well enough to go to grandma’s today, the fever is gone, just a cough is hanging around right now. YAY!! It has been a crazy week at my house.

Christine: This crazy weather is probably the culprit. I think we are supposed to see 80 or above by Tuesday or on Tuesday, and then it drops back down to the 50’s again. Crazy!!

Barb – I hate it when that happens, since I had a whole post of everything that was going on this week. Ugh…. I will just have to tell you about it on Saturday. So far so good… and if it looks like I won’t make it I will let you know. Usually though that early I can make it as both Blake and hubby are sleeping. 

Good luck at your game! Have fun with it.

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone!!

It is sooooo annoying to lose a post! Hope that Blake is feeling better. Hard when little ones are sick!

I'll see you on Saturday Kelli. But if something happens that you can't make it, just let me know. I know how life can get in the way!!

Christine, I hope the weather gets nice soon so you can lose the weight you want to lose!! Looks like we have a trend of nice days ahead of us!!

Yes, I am not eating meat, but I seem to be gaining instead of losing. I think it is the weather more than anything! :( I hope it all evens out.

It was a nasty day today!!! I wouldn't have walked outside either.

First softball game Thursday night at Fort Boise at 7:15. Field #2 if anyone wants to come cheer us on.

Kelli, are we still on for a walk Saturday morning? At the mall?

Kelli, the 18th at 7 works for me! Mall again, right?

I did stay healthy!! Not bad with two of them trying to make me sick. Ha!

I'm struggling to stay awake, so I'd better go to bed. Participating in the Micron 5k Fun Run (it'll be fun walk for me!) tomorrow morning. Hoping the rain holds off until I'm done. After, I'll be doing some grocery shopping. Another exciting day planned! LOL!

Oh Kelli, I am so glad Blake is alright now. Asthma is scary for everyone involved. Poor little guy, Glad that you went to bed early!

So far the book makes perfect sense. I have lots more reading to do though... :)

I need to get my hair cut and colored too, sure does help my outlook on life too! Hope you do feel up to going to the gym but it may take a bit to get squared away again for energy! Listen to yourself. :)

Good Morning,

I am feeling almost human today. Went to bed really early again, Blake woke up at 2 with a really bad asthma attack. Took almost an hour to get him settled down and breathing right again. Ugh....

I have heard of the Eat to Live Plan. I haven't read the book, let me know how it is.

I am getting my hair cut and colored tomorrow and maybe just maybe I will feel good enough to get to the gym.

Have a great weekend.

Hiya Kelli, I wondered if it was your medication for Graves... Woot, glad it is in remission! Oh yes it will take you a few days to get back to normal. Just don't push it. :)

We just got done with a nice afternoon walk.

No I haven't make the cookies yet because I am reading a new book on how to reverse diabetes called "The eat to Live Plan" and not sure if those cookies are going to be allowed.... emoticon I sure hope so!

Feel better soon Kelli!!!

Hi!!

So the tests came back in, my thyroid is in remission. (Grave's disease). The medication that I have been on for the last 3 years is causing the actual symptoms now, so he took me off the medication as of yesterday. So now I am trying to get my body back to normal which will take a few days. So still really tired as of today and trying to tell myself I am not tired. I am so ready to just go home.

Christine - Those cookies sound wonderful. Did you make them yet?

Barb - Did you stay healthy?
I would like to walk about 7 so if all goes the way it should, I can make the gym for the strength training class at 8:30.

Have a good afternoon!!

Barb staying in calorie range is not easy for most of us... so Way To Go!!! I am sure you won't want to break your streak so you'll be fine at Bonefish Grill! Just keep thinking of your firm resolve and you can resist! Besides it will be summer before we know it and we want to look our best, right?

I didn't make my cookies yet but I am going to! They are pretty darn good for as healthy as they are! :)

Those sound delicious and healthy!! I may have to make some of those.

Today was day four for me staying in calorie range!! Tomorrow will be a little challenging as our group is going to Bonefish Grill for lunch. I know they have healthy choices...the challenge will be to make that choice when it's time to order!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

When do you find out the results of your tests? I hope it's something easy to fix!

Kelli, what time are you thinking on the 18th? I can do early. And we can decide where to walk when we get closer and see what the weather is like.

Christine, I'm sorry that you'll pass on walking with us, but hope you see lots of birds!

Oh...and raspberry cheesecake sounds delicious!!! Now I want some too!!

Oh I didn't know you had to go to the doctor for tests. I sure do hope he finds out what is giving you problems. Feeling sick gets so old doesn't it?

OH the raspberry cheesecake does sound yummy! We didn't cook anything special for Easter so I was spared from the calories for once! I am probably going to make some muffins today because I'm still craving cake :)

I took at nap today so no walk yet, but it's about 53 now so a cup of tea and then I am going to hit the trail!

A pink mitt? Wow that is pretty cool! Is is the kind that you have to break in?

I'm not planning anymore walking dates but I will be going on the greenbelt pretty soon looking for the birds I want to see. I got on eBird (online) and I am finding where some of the birds I want to see have been. I have also been studying my bird books.

Okay I am off now for my walk. I will be walking every single day I can from now on. Are you still running Kelli or do you need to wait for doctor approval?

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a great Easter. Mine was good, Saturday ended up being super busy trying to get everything done and have a cooperative 3 year old.
I went to the doctor this morning and had tons of tests run. Something has to make me feel better soon!!

Christine – I am wanting to do some yard work too, but like you waiting for better weather. I ended up making a raspberry lemon cheesecake. It was SOOOO good.

Barb – OH how fun!! I have been wanting to get back to playing softball myself. Hopefully next year I can. I signed up to be an assistant coach for Blake’s t-ball this year, so hoping to get some practice in. I bought a mitt, a pink one.


We need to get that walk rescheduled so I can take your pictures in tie died shirts!!! So sorry I had to cancel on you guys, nothing was working out Saturday morning.

Christine – You make me laugh. I bet if we all practiced sprints we would all lose the weight… unless we went out for breakfast afterwards. Did you make it out for a walk? The sun is out, but still a little cool.

I hope you get to see your sister too.

Barb – The 18th is looking good for me too. Nothing scheduled as of right now. Barb we could do early if the weather isn’t too awful bad and by then I should be feeling much better and ready to get back into a workout schedule.

Have a great Monday everyone!!

I hope you get to see your sister!! Maybe she'll come back with you!! Is she doing better? Any plans for her to come for an extended visit?

Walked to the gym today and got home before it rained. Lots of standing today....so just sitting now!

Barb, I remember the throwing! I got all worn out before I really started - so lame LOL

I looked at my iPhone and it looks like it's called Interval Timer. Yeah if this weather would ever get good again I would love to meet to run some sprints. I could make you look really good! :) Good for the ego :) Yours.... of course!

That fun run for Micron sounds FUN! Haha! But... Let's wait awhile to plan another walk, okay? Whenever the weather is good I walk everyday but I need to get back into it soon! I have been hating this wind!!! Gosh! If the 18th is still bad weather I am going to fly out of here and go visit my sister! Yes I am serious! emoticon

I need to work on throwing, hitting and running! LOL! I forgot how much of your body you use when you throw...I am sore all over. DD and I will likely go to the park at the corner and throw. She played outfield so can give me so pointers on how to throw it further.

What's the name of the HIIT app? Maybe I will download it too and we can do the sprints! I need to run faster to get to 1st base so I don't get out every time I bat.

Too bad that we couldn't meet today to walk. But probably good too...it was a bit chilly! Want to try to plan another day? The 11th is bad for me - doing the Micron Fun Run 5k. The 18th looks okay though. Thoughts?

My BFF used to be a big time softball player (catcher) and one day she was tossing the ball back and forth with me... and that wore me out fast! It is way harder than it looks. You were out in this miserable cold? Bummer!

I don't have a mitt or I would practice with you! Are you a good hitter? Runner? What do you need to work on? That soccer field on Lake Forrest is a good place to practice stuff!

I just downloaded a free HIIT app for Interval Training. We could practice sprints... wonder if I could finally lose the weight doing that?

Practice was fun. Cold, but fun! I have a lot is skills I need to work on. We have one game a week starting the middle of the month and we play through June. Yay!!

Happy Easter weekend to you too!! Looking forward to our walk tomorrow. If it's too cold, we can find a warm indoor place to either walk or drink coffee. Tee hee.

Kelli, Christine and I will be wearing tie-dye and need you to take our picture, k? A friend sent us the shirts and she wants to see how gorgeous we are!! emoticon

Hello ladies!

Tomorrow is my first softball practice of the season!! Playing in Boise this year instead of Kuna. It's going to cost me more $$, but at least I get to play!

I'm ready for it to be warm and sunny every day!!! Hope that happens soon!!!

Hi again.

I have yard work that I really need to get done, but..... looking for some better weather! :)

Kelli are you going to make an Easter Cake? A friend on the camp team made one with a Chocolate bunny on top surrounded with those cute candy eggs. Doesn't that sound awesome? And she gets 50 points for being creative too! Man I have been craving cake lately and I am trying to fight it off - I love cake!

Hope you get your run tomorrow. :)

How's things going Barb?

Hi All,

I didn't run today, I was working outside though. It wasn't awful, but it was a bit chilly.

Hopefully tomorrow I will get out for a run.

I'm with you...wind is no fun. I was inside most of the day, so didn't have to deal with it. The boss was nice and let me leave at 2:00 today. I ran a couple of errands that I didn't have to time to run on Saturday and then spent time at the gym. Relaxing now until bed time...and hoping that comes early!

Let's all kick it up this week and go into April like a lion!!!

Kelli, how did the cleaning go?

Barb, I hope everything comes together and you get done with court soon!

My arms feel like lead weights today. I had a tetanus shot and I am having a bad reaction to something in it. Yesterday I broke out in a rash on both arms... but it seems to be going away.

Such as it is, I would rather be cleaning Kelli! :)
