Will Lose Four Bowling Balls

My name is Lou. As an avid bowler, I know how heavy those 16-pound bowling balls can be. Because of physical injuries my weight jumped and I now will lose the equivalent of four of these orbs.

Mental strength is necessary for physical strength.

Carpe Diem -- Seize the Day. It has been made for you and will never be repeated. Tomorrow begins a new one full of opportunities and challenges.

Be strong, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically.

Second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day anything can be overcome.

I had to smile as I read your comments about the state bowling tournament. On one hand, it sounds like such a good calorie-burner; but oh, don't you pay for it (your feet and back). Yes, we do what we can as well as what we must.

Anything exciting? Well, I'm not sure how exciting it is to someone else, but DH and I still volunteer at the animal shelter and the elementary school. But the latter won't be for much longer as it's mid-May. There's always next Fall.

Tomorrow is primary day in Pennsylvania, and DH and I work at the polls. We'll set up what we can this afternoon, and be there tomorrow at 6:00 a.m. Since the polling place is very close to our home, I'll take advantage of a couple of slow moments and run (drive) home and let Darby (our pit bull mix) out.

Bless her heart, the first time we worked the polls, I went home twice during the day and let her out, following her around the yard, but she never "went". It was about 9:45 p.m. when I was able to let her out again. You should have seen how fast she ran out. But no accidents in the house! Talk about control of ones bodily functions!

Have a super week.
Nancy

Good Morning, Lou! Hope the doctor's appointment goes well...
Perhaps when you get home you could do all three things?... Mow the lawn, set a timer for 15 minutes and de-clutter the worst part of the office, and then take a nap to celebrate that you accomplished three items on your to-do- list. emoticon
