I had to be in downtown San Antonio by 8 am this morning and though it is only about 40 miles from my house, it took the better part of 1.5 hours.... Ack! I'm not sure that I could survive as a commuter, UNLESS someone ELSE were driving! T... Read more
Back Home Again

I Did It and I'm Sore
Tuesday, June 05, 2018      6 comments

Just like I promised, dear Sparkbuddies, I got up early-ish (7am) and went down to the city pool and swam laps this morning... Even though I've worked up to 2 miles in years past, I thought maybe I had better start slow and easy, that I sho... Read more
