It took me awhile, but I’ve learned that if I don’t like it, I won’t do it. I know that I need to exercise, but I had to figure out what makes me want to exercise. You have to like what you are doing. And finally, I do!! I was kind of lost for a […]

The new calendar for writing assignments came out last week. I saw that my first post was on October 6 and it said Saturday Review. I immediately knew what I would do. I had received a new FitBit to replace my old one that had broken. Somehow, somewhere, it was just gone one day. I […]

It’s been awhile since I’ve done the tooting around here! Hold on while I grab a shovel, I might have to dig REAL DEEP! I kid… sort of. So, last week, I drug my ass to my local YMCA… you know, the one I used to visit on a regular basis. I got on a […]

So. There it is. Me saying I’m no […]
