My aunt says even ugly quilts keep you warm. That helps me be willing to do it. Too bad your son spoiled the fun. I am not sure what would be active and fun for several ages.

sounds like a fun summer.

By the end of summer, I would like to finish my current book (printed and on audio) and be walking 3 miles most days. I have two long days I work and they are 13-14 hours away from home. The other days I'm either home or home by 4-5.

I would like to make a quilt for my youngest granddaughter. I made her one when she was born and never gave it to her. I finished it. It was beautiful. I only saw the flaws. I'll make her another one for her big girl bed that will be full of flaws also but she will enjoy.

I want to take my older grandsons on a date. I had planned to take them miniature golfing as neither had been but since I voiced the idea, one son takes his child weekly. It makes the adventure uneven for the boys. I'll have to think of something else that is physical and fun and not tell the others.

Thank you for the Goodie! It made me smile. emoticon By the end of summer I want to run again. I had knee surgery a month ago, and miss it! Who would have thought I'd miss running? emoticon

If it wasn't hard, you wouldn't be getting stronger.

By the end of summer I would like to get back under 400 again & keep going. I had gone from 485 to 345 2 years ago & then started suffering from debilitating back problems ( three pinched nerves) & gained some back, but now am headed back down again. I would also like to have my disability claim settled in my favor by then too.

Live, laugh and love!

By the end of the summer I want to be more focused and back in the groove of putting my nutrition and eating habits back to a healthy way so I can start seeing results.

I suggest "The Glass Castle" or "The Help" or "For Every Mother" by Janene W. Baadsgaard (that is the book I am currently reading and loving it).

Thanks, Pam. I appreciate it.

There are so many people out of work around here and one placement agency I talked to today, said they are not getting many jobs in the city but they have one in an outlying small town but I don't drive and have no way to get there on a daily basis.

Another told me that things are slowing down again but he hopes it will pick up again after summer is over... Not good news....

I only worked 1 day in June and 1 1/2 days in July..... I am trying to stay strong, but it is getting depressing.

I would like to have a new conversation. I am sending a goodie to each team member I can and asking them to answer this question.

You can answer anything you would like, scripture reading, read a book, make something, lose weight, try something, go someplace. Whatever you like, use your imagination.
