Today I had myself in order early!! Did the hill and had 70 min. of cardio walking done by 9:30 am!! It was the only way because at 8:00 am it was already 81 degrees and I knew the hill would be hopeless if I waited at ALL. It really made a BI... Read more

A perspective from yesterday on young mothers.... Back in the day, our boys were 18 mos. apart. Had two babies in diapers at once. The little one had colic, never even smiled until he was 4 mos. old. Up all night, crying every waking minute,... Read more

In the end, we got just a bit over .25" of rain. We could've used about 5". It sprinkled a little today, there was thunder & clouds but not enough to register in the rain gauge. Had a great day, but for some reason I'm kind of tired. ... Read more

Never did rain last night or today. No luck in that department! Lots of clouds, but no precip. It was kind of a quiet day, nothing exciting. That's nice once in a while, I enjoyed it. Did the hill this morning, then got in the cardi... Read more
