my high school sweetheart.
My 3 children are all grown,
as happy and as healthy as I could make them.
I finally became a grammy in 2009!
Now we have ...

Yeah the weigh-in Saturday was higher than expected. It didn't make sense given the week. The one this morning was more reasonable.

Thanks for the goodie! We are hoping to downsize in the next year or so!

Besides upsizing in retirement, there's something else we have in common - We both joined SP in Jan 09. I had a different name then and adopted my current name in August 09.

I have some neon purple running shoes that I am going to wear, even to the vatican! We started walking in the neighbor hood, 2 miles 40 minutes last night, it is a start!

"MEADSBAY Is grateful we can rotate pics in our blogs now but annoyed we cannot do so in our status updates. Happy Wednesday!"
* Yeah, this is usually when I would usually replace my profile pic of @macklemore and @ryanlewis and put an upside down one in, but I don't think I have the friendship cred I once had to do that :S

Either way, Hope that you and yours are well!
