Why is it that a Lenten promise turns into a post Lenten Gorge-fest? I gave up meat for Lent this year. My main source of protein was eggs, dairy, seafood and plants. Did great! Although, the last three weeks I was getting tired of it. I pe... Read more

DH had some follow up appts from his recent hospitalization for chest pain. I guess that's why I've been kind of quiet lately. Sometimes, it's hard to take it all in. And you just want to live in the moment. So DH had an echocardiogram ... Read more

A few weeks ago, I bought a pedometer. I had high hopes for it. It was going to stimulate me, challenge me to step a few more, spark my ingenuity to figure out how to get 10k steps in a day. My pedometer was going to be the key to my success.... Read more
