The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"

Cinq Choses Pour Moi

1) my friend Suzie Jordan is listening online to Country 94 today in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. Made my day to know that! |
2) Ray enjoying a day off today (July 1 was Canada Day and since it was on Saturday, most people get today off)
3) sunny and warm today, tomorrow, Wednesday *AND* Thursday - WOoohooo!
4) having enough
5) knee feeling quite a bit better
So glad that your knee is feeling better!

So hard when exercise is your job as well as your joy to be sidelined by an injury or pain. |

Home sweet home safely! |
The grandkids had a blast.
Getting to sleep in until almost 8:30 today. Can't tell you how good it felt. I would have already had my pedometer up to about 3,000 steps by that time any day the preceding week.
Soft tissue paper both north and south since I got home. For a week all we have been exposed to (yes, pun intended) takes a layer of skin off with every use. That alone should have amounted to at least a pound loss of weight this week.
Was able to walk over 11,000 steps every single day and that was just on my "rest" day. I put in over 50 miles of walking in 7 days. All of those days it came bad storms for at least 2 hours, 1 day the storms started at lunch and lasted all day or the walking would have been much higher. Proud of myself. Although my husband made it each day he was flagging a bit the last few hours. He had been complaining if I missed going to the gym with him, but I told him that even though I missed the gym I was exercising every day. Of course, he didn't believe it because he didn't see it. He conceded on the trip that I must have been because I was keeping up with the kids then having to drop back to stay with him when he couldn't keep up.
I didn't gain on the trip. It was so hot that I didn't really eat much on top of all that walking either so I should have lost, but I didn't. A typical day was oatmeal for breakfast then a half sandwich later on for dinner. The thing is around 2-4 PM each day I had one junk thing. I had one 3" wide cookie, an ice cream cone, a dish of ice cream, an order of fries, and a pretzel so I guess they cancel out the lighter fare.
Seeing that Shirley posted during the week! So happy to hear from her, I have missed her so. Also grateful to hear about her new condo. I hope she is very happy there.
Cindy is dow 51 pounds! Whooo-hoooo Cindy!
That Paula had such a good birthday in Maryland.
Beverly got to spend time with her son and grandkids.
Krista's knee is feeling a bit better and Ray's pain seems to be lessening a little. I hope both keep improving.

Did I misspeak?

Did I actually say I had fun? What was I thinking? LOL |
I did enjoy Pandora that just opened, It was totally breathtaking! The best thing I have ever done at any amusement park. Soarin' used to be the best thing. In case you haven't been it is supposed to be a hang glider ride over the wonders of the world, and stuff. I love soaring over the Eifel Tower and Great Wall of China, Taj Mahal, and Neuschwanstein Castle. They are all things I would love to see close up from the air but don't think I ever will. But on Pandora, it feels as if you are riding on a Banshee, or as I would rather imagine a dragon. It actually feels like it is breathing against your legs. The virtual world they created is the most beautiful thing. I could look for hours and find new beauty to see, I think.
The rest of the time I was mostly enjoying the kids enjoying themselves and getting wet from light rain for hours after heavy storms with downpours, which was a switch from being soaked from the high humidity and heat of the mornings.
Pandora sounds awesome!

Sounds really like a fun experience. Glad you got to do it! And glad the grandkids had a blast You're a great grandmother to them.|

It seems so real. It is the thing that the kids will remember most. The oldest one's school band has been invited to play in the parade next spring and he don't even want to go back except for Pandora. |

1. An extra day off from work with pay! The board voted to give us both Monday and Tuesday off for the 4th! |
2. Progress happening at the rental. Ken and I have been working over ther this past weekend and will continue trying to get it ready to rent.
3. My faith in God. He sure does help see me through things.
4. The thought of Shirley finding her new home and getting settled and being able to come post with us again. I miss her.
5. Another chance to get it right.
Enjoy your days off Cindy!
