I'm retired at 61 and still paying my bills (barely).
I've been married forever (45 years!)
to the man of my dreams (most days),
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 ...

Thanks for my goodie and the info! I bought some thin cheap sox and they slide down my heel. Maybe I should fork over a little more money?? LOL They feel great sockless but I am nervous about heading out on a walking vacation not wearing sox. Hmmm.......
I'm so glad you had a good time and I definitely would not worry about 2-3 pounds! Heck, I've gained more than that in the past 6 months with no vacation!!
I'm doing fine. Trying to up my exercise a bit. I am still at my heaviest weight ever. I waiver between "I look awful! I have to lose some weight!" to "This is who I am right now. I will do the best I can and work on accepting my body." (Is that the easy way out?)
Anyway, so glad you had a great time. I'm getting anxious for our trip in June!
Rest up!
