Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Ah, megaultrayay, might well be translated as mega ultra yay! When I was much younger, and there were cliche sayings like groovy, cool, awesome, I got rather tired of some of the repetition. So, I thought about how commercials and products kept coming out with mega, super, ultra, etc, to impress us, and started developing my own words for effect. I kept this up with my kids. Also, with the advent of texting and limited number of characters allowed, I started even more just running it together as a single word. Like do you think this is a megasupersonicphenomenallywondermous idea? Oh, and feel free to put them in like elision type combinations, like fantabulous, or wonderiffic.... :) I was congratulating you...really...

I am not so much having trouble sleeping as staying asleep. I wake up several times a night. I do go back to sleep though. I guess I wasn't clear about daylight savings. I hate to think of the time change and it getting dark so early. Winter is not my best time. I crave the light!
Can't wait to see your finished project!

Gail, thanks so much for your continuing support, what would we do without our spark friends? It feels good to know we are on the same path, dealing with many of the same issues, ah yes those pesky knees....
Have a great week my friend, from the looks of your posts you are very active! Keep on going, we can do this if we just keep supporting each other! emoticon emoticon
