So I've worked on staying focused over these last couple of weeks. I have made the decision to work out every day (some days the decision was tougher than others!). I have tracked calories every day and stayed in range. I have made good decis... Read more

I finally have some of my London/Ireland pix downloaded to computer so I'll give you a sample of what I've got. They are pretty standard point and shoot travel pictures. I'm not a very good photographer. So, with all those caveats; here goes... Read more

That blog sounded like a boring travelogue. Let me give you some of the inside dirt. Leaving Dulles my husband was told his carry on was too big. It wasn't. The guy was just giving us grief and being "tough". He said he'd let it go this time... Read more

We had a wonderful time in London and Ireland! I'm an OK traveler but I do not like the airport stress!! And, flying international seems to add to the stress for me. Anyway, we were plenty early for our flight but still had little wait time ... Read more

I met with the rheumatologist today. She was very nice, seemed to know her stuff and appeared to be 18!! LOL!! We reviewed my history and all of the blood work done so far. She sincerely doubts that I have lupus. But, she did want to do mor... Read more
