It's being a good summer: camping, kayaking, bar-be-ques, photo taking (with my new lens), gardening, reading, and a trip to GERMANY. What a beautiful country. We got to spend 2 weeks with my son and his family. (He's getting out of the Army ... Read more

Just back from 2 weeks in Maldives and Dubai. What a trip- we spent 10 days on a liveaboard dive boat. The diving was great, but the food was a battle. Served family style, we could have all we wanted. The service was beyond great- the wait... Read more

I was recently told I had to remove my extra teaching materials (a collection of 23 years!) from the spare classroom next to my reading classroom (where I have almost none of my teaching stuff stored). I cleaned with abandon, and it felt libera... Read more

The weight keeps coming off slowly buy surely. I'm down to 151.8 . I'm thinking of adjusting my goal weight up to 150- even talked with my doctor about it. We think 140 would be too thin for me. I'm down to the low side of size 14, feel good... Read more
