Health care reform act ....
I am thrilled that US Supreme Court upheld the law
We should do better as a nation with both preventive and maintainence medical care!!

Carve out what is most important to you first, then allocate your day to others! I promise you and they will be better for this decision!!

I had a wonderful catch up with a friend for coffee, coffee, coffee - so nice :-)

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Today I went house/condo hunting with my son. His first place. We had 4 places we
considered amd 2 of the 4 have real potential. We both like the same one best for him...we have a few more to view before a decison but I feel we are on the right track. Launching my baby is turning into a very pleasant experience! I can see him in his future!!

I received some good news this evening. My DH had a sewing kit hand made for me several years ago. During several moves the legs broke off, and I didn't think there was any way it could be fixed. My SIL called to let me know that my BIL had taken the sewing case and replaced all the legs and it is as good as new. I am so happy.

I went to the podiatrist today to check on what I thought was a blister on the bottom of my foot. It turns out that there was something in there and it wasn't a blister at all. The doctor managed to get it out and put a dressing on. I need to go back on Friday for a follow up. I am grateful that I decided to go to the doctor and that that my foot didn't become infected.

I am finally totally finished with my old apartment. My Apartment Manager did a tour with me and he said everything was all right and that I had done a good job of cleaning up. I should get all my damage deposit back, minus the cost of shampooing the carpets. That is good news to me.

My good news~~~We returned home from our 1st wintering in the south on June 1st and haven't stayed home to do any work. Having too much fun!!

Slow & steady makes a winner of us. Even if we hit pitfalls, get up. Know that a new day is right around the corner.
Try to be all that you can be. Work at it a day at a time.

"Be not afraid of going slow; be afraid if standing still" (Chinese Proverb)

With God all things are possible.

If you have the courage to begin, you have the courage to succeed.

There is so much bad...reported, repeated and thrown at us...I want all of us to send one good news message about anything....

MY GOOD NEWS TODAY IS THAT I RETURNED FROM A GREAT VACATION AT MYRTLE BEACH AND DID NOT GAIN WEIGHT!!

Carve out what is most important to you first, then allocate your day to others! I promise you and they will be better for this decision!!
