I will NOT be disappointed. No pool for 2 more weeks. I can walk as many miles as I want but I WILL notice it becomes uncomfortable. Apparently I had a lot of work done "down there". Sutures from here to eternity. ... Read more

It's too hot. Chewy is visiting and requires me to sit in my recliner so he can drape his head across my ankle. His hu-mom is in the pool. Vacuuming it. Housework with a twist. DH is sulking. His older daughter did something ... Read more

Miscellany: I managed over 8000 steps today in three walks! I'm beat. It's been one week since I was skewered on the spit! Barely made it home after the last but I did it. I saw the two fawns and mom deer again this time on the next block ... Read more
