I just wanted to let everyone know, my whole family has been to the doc. We are all on antibiotics and some heavy duty cough syrup. This is far from fun. I have no energy or stamina right now. I can only hope this runs it's course soon so I ... Read more

I know this is late but . . . This past Saturday was the China Town 5K. I'd wanted to do this race last year but I had a scheduling conflict. So needless to say I was really excited for this year. I hadn't been feeling well all week, ... Read more

I've had 5 days off - and I took them off of EVERYTHING. I'm admitting to it: I did not track. I did not eat well. I did not exercise. I sat on my butt for hours. I just played with my girls around the house. We shared pizza. I... Read more

Well I will not be running the dirty dash this year. Glad I had other runs in June. Supposedly I will gay a refund in 7 to 10 days. Believe it when I see it. I was told that they sent an email "several weeks" ago announcing the change. ... Read more

It’s amazing how attached you can get to an animal in just 2 months. Hubby and I are still heartbroken, but this too will pass. Snuggle my girls and move on. I’m on day 3 of being in calorie range. I’m pretty happy with that. Food has a... Read more

The good is Gram is much better. She will probably come home this week. She is recovering extremely well and already driving the nurses nuts. She was even moved out of ICU already. I got to talk to her the other day. She gets out of breath ... Read more
