You may have noticed, especially if you use a reader for your blogs, that we have had some technical difficulties up in here. “We” lost about 6 months of posts. GASP!

Think Thursday

So, you want to lose weight? You want to look good naked? What is it? So, what’s stopping you? I like to think about the future me. What would she like to be able to do? I look at my mom. She’s 82 and shows no signs of slowing down. She’s up and walking by […]
