Let me know if you're still interested.

Hi welcome to the team. I bet there is a walking club in your area, or if not, you could start one. Put an ad in your local paper, or at the healthclub or better yet, at the school. Lots of moms with the same schedule as you

Hi, Chrissi! I just came from the La Grange Park library!!! My Toastmasters International meeting is there every first and third Thursday.

I'm afraid I can't be a walking buddy, though. I actually live on the south side near 103rd and Kedzie. My grandsons are the ages of your kids!

I do wish you luck, though. Glad your sons are handsome, but honey, focus on other parts of your family's character, too: spirit, intellect, etc., too. My daughter-in-law just mentioned I should start telling the kids how nice they are, how smart, how helpful...etc...instead of just their cuteness. That's why I thought to mention it to you.

We're both on ACIWL team...I haven't really kept up with it, though. As a serious student of ACIM, it's not quite what I thought it would be.

Greetings Friends :-)

I'm in the La Grange / Countryside / Hodgkins area and am looking for a walking buddy (or two or three or more LOL). I am currently a stay-at-home mom of 2 boys and I have time in the mornings while they are both in school. Once school is out in June my availabilty will be a bit more flexible.

I'd like to meet up with another mom or two so our kids can maybe even walk with us now and then. The ages of my boys are 6 years and 4 years.

Feel free to answer me here or send me a private message.

Looking forward to meeting some of you!

Blessed Be!

In Gratitude & Love,

People often say that motivation doesn't last.
Well, neither does bathing -
that's why it's recommended daily.
