Wow! Some weekends I just don't know how to log my fitness points. Saturday my two sons and I showed up for set construction for the youngest's play at 9 am and quit at 2 pm. I have no idea how to account for what I did, but I was exha... Read more

Sunday, July 31, 2011      1 comments

So glad my eldest son called to let me know he is done boot camp requirements. Apparently they got bored today and he led his platoon in stacking sandbags to create a "defensive position" around the entrance to their barracks. Oh, and added a M... Read more
