haha, I never thought about it from that perspective, I love the longer days. I get so much more accomplished in a day. I like it being daylight when I wake up too. Come June 22 the days will slowly be getting shorter ;-)

Ok, see you at 7:30. Yeh, I figured we'd have about an hour of light - I noticed it's getting dark later and later - drives me crazy this time of year as the kids aren't convinced that it's bedtime yet! :o)

For what it's worth sunset is 8:26 PM so you should be good to go from a lighting perspective. Wish I could join you, but I'm recovering from being away for the weekend -- chores!

Now that the pool is open I may have to walk later - like 7:30. Does that work? I promised the kids we'd go after school, then dinner....ugg, can I have a few more hours to the day?? :o)

Man what a bummer, mine comes out in Jan, I'm thinking a new one is going right back in, I never had bad PMS or periods without BC but I've only heard horror stories once they come out. Not looking forward to that.

Either day is fine with me as well. I'm taking a zumba class on tuesday night, so Thurs may be better for my body, but either day will work. Still want to meet around 630 at the senior center? If there's parking?

That would work for me too. I'm available Wed & Thurs evenings. Either work for you?

Are there any schools near you with good running tracks? Some schools have good spongey tracks and I haven't checked the high school's yet. Would be good in case it's been raining to avoid the mud.

I was a bad girl Sat. Sun. Nothing awful, but definitely not saying no to the sweets. I have 1/2 of a good excuse ;o) lol. I had a mirena IUD in for 5 yrs and had it removed in April. I haven't had PMS or period for 5 yrs (well I had an ever-so-slight period each month, but heaven compared to normal). Let me tell you, I didn't miss it. So that's my excuse. I haven't walked and really need to. I WILL do my treadmill today. 45 minutes is my goal. Gotta make up & get back into the swing of things raging hormones or not lolol.

I like to BBQ on holidays so it's hamburgers (4% fat), lite whole wheat buns, light hotdogs for the kids, made small bowl of potato salad w/ veggies & 4 egg whites, & fruit salad. Nothing too tempting.

Have a great rest of the day!

Terry

I know we didn't have a definite plan for today, but it looks like I won't be able to make it. Maybe we can try another day during the week?

I think this is my daughter's last hip hop class and I'm thinking they want us to watch the routine?? I'm not sure. My daughter can't stand going and if she knows it's a routine she'll freak - especially since year end testing started today (stress!). I'm feeling a ton better - my back is fine. Let me talk to my daughter after school and see what she wants to do...and I will check her schedule to see if this is the last class or not. I'll let you know alittle later.

Joan & Heather, I hope you read this before this evening. I was hoping I would be feeling better but somehow I have tweeked my back and the cold wet air is not helping. I've done the ibu, tyl, naproxin and I'm thinking it just wants rest. I will not be walking tonight - and I'm not even sure if I will be taking my daughter to dance class.

I had a busy weekend and slipped at the gym (from pool water on the floor) and I think that is where the tweek came from. I am confident this too shall pass.

Have a great week!!

Terry

As much as I revel in the rain, I don't think you'll see me tonight. But that's what I wrote last week.

My take on this is that this walk is a good thing, but I agree that the summer may be no fun from a heat perspective.

Sure, I'd love to continue this for as long as we can tolerate it. June may not be so bad, July, Aug, and Sept are the worst months around here. We'll play it by ear.

Just wanted to let you know there are 2 weeks left for my daughter's class but I am more than willing to meet after that thru May. I can't guarantee June as the heat usually gets to me. We can play it by ear.

oh that is scary, Trixie gets into everything so I'm sure you take a nose dive into a snake if it was close. I do hope the dog is ok.

That is awful! I have never seen a copperhead and would probably be pretty crazy myself if I had. Poor girl & family. I haven't even thought about that when we walk in the woods! I'm glad you were there to help and try to stay focused in their time of need. I hope that their dog is ok too.

Hey Terry & Heather - had an interesting remainder of the evening after I left y'all. On the ride home, I encountered a girl and a dog, and the girl was hysterical and the dog was lying down, having just been bitten by a copperhead according to the girl. Eventually the girl's mother arrived and an older sister with another dog. Unfortunately their car was parked at the Y and the dad/husband was exercising and not reachable by cell. To make a long story short, a neighbor of theirs and I both arrived with cars at about the same time, so I didn't have to drive two dogs, 2 hysterical girls and their mom to the emergency vet on High House Road. Hope the dog is okay. I have a coworker with a much smaller dog that was bitten by a copperhead and the dog is fine now. So I'm glad I was able to help and hope there is a happy ending here.

Heather, we need to be careful to keep Trixie was rooting around when we are on the dirt trails. I think that's where girl & dog were when the dog got bit.

Probably not coming tonight...so if you don't see me, don't wait around. A lot depends on when I get out of work today.

Yes! I just got home from a trip to MD to surprise my parents for their 45th anniversary. I had a crazy traveling weekend (we all know how difficult that is when you're trying to be good!) and I need the walk!

See you tomorrow 6:30 in front of the sr. center!

I noticed that too - I am getting notices of threads, new members, etc a day or 2 after the fact. Think I'll just uncheck that box and check the threads on a daily basis. Not worth all the extra emails if it's too late to read it LOL.

I'm walking in Bond Park on Monday evenings - TONIGHT will be the first night. My daughter has a parks/rec class at the Sr. Center and I will walk for that 45 minutes (6:30-7:15). If you want to join me, PLEASE DO, I'd love to meet someone else encouraging. Please call my cell 720-0494 if you plan on meeting me.
Thanks,
Terry
