Tomorrow I drive to Washington DC for a short 3-4 day vacation. My vacation was specifically planned to be a walking vacation. I wanted to go somewhere that I could do a lot of walking, but still find fun things to do. DC is the perfect trip. ... Read more

Today the thermometer hit 53 degrees here in RI. What a beautiful day it was! I drove around with the windows down (slightly) and listened to the birds sing. Today was the first sign of warmer weather, which got me thinking about my summer cloth... Read more

2/12/13 I have taken a 15 minute walk today. I have also planned my meals for the day. I'm noticing that when I plan my next day the night before I feel more in control. I don't "fly by the seat of my pants" too well at all. So, the planning d... Read more
