I would love to go dancing, but I will admit I do not know how to dance. Can you believe that after living for 46 yrs I have never been to a dance or even know how to dance?

That is great to do it with your husband. I have tried to get my husband doing it with me, but he gives up easily. I am also in better shape, so maybe I need to slow down to his level and see if he will continue. But I hate the idea of not getting in my exercise or a good work out because I am at his pace.

I'm a runner, but I like good walks as well. My husbands knees are in poor condition, so we usually walk together. For example this year again we are walking the Bay to Breakers. It's a 7 miles plus race in San Francisco. We have been doing it for years and it's always so much fun!

I love the pictures of your sun, you can send some up to montana. I did see my first Robin today. YA!!!! That is a for sure sign that spring is coming.

Have fun training for your 5 K. My daughter wanted to do a half marathon before she goes off to college. So we are training for that. I will be walking, and she will run/ walk it. But it is fun working on it together.

I just got a call from son... He is back state side, after doing his second tour in Afghanistan. I am so excited to have him back safe and in the states. emoticon

So even though it is cloudy and cold here... it is a great day.

I love the Sansone videos! The weather is "bad" where I am most of the time. I like being a ble to choose a workout depending on how much time I have.

Hi, I miss the sun today emoticon emoticon , but it is still warm. I am sooooo ready for spring. My little ones are as well. We have had so much snow, it is hard to find any place to shovel it to.

Fresh bread sounds great. Do they use whole grains like oatmeal, and cornmeal. I am looking for a heavy healthy bread that is easy to make. My daughter is also trying to go glutton free so I try to find things with out all the white flour for both of us.

I found the problem with me not getting the posts is that the emails were listed as don't send me emails. I am not sure how it got turned off, but I changed that and then I started receiving the posts again.

Sunny and 50 yesterday in Iowa. Unfortunately, I've been sick since Saturday and couldn't get out to enjoy it. I even had one of my older kids home sick, and he offered to watch the twins so I could go for a walk. I just couldn't physically handle it. I think I'm starting to get a little better today. I finally got some sleep last night.

Sunny again today, but I think it's supposed to cool off a bit.

hi, sorry I haven't been around I have been really busy, then I noticed after that week that i wasn't getting my emails about spark. So I went in and found the problem, I got my two big papers done and a couple of policies written. I think I should be back a round for a while. I still have a few papers to finish, and one more class, but they should be much slow rate than the last one. emoticon
I am enjoying the sun today and am ready for spring to come.

Thanks ,everyone for responding.
I hope the worst is behind me.I was getting tired of having to sleep on old towels to protect my sheets.

GAILSQUEST, I think it's safe to say what your going through is normal, It's just what your body is going through.

Now maybe you'll start skipping even long and go 3 or more months.

I have a question.I did`nt have my monthly for 2 months and then 4 days ago I started spotting.I`m still spotting.Does this happen often?
Anyone with any words of wisdom feel free to jump right in.I just turned 52 by the way.I was skipping every other month for quite some time.

Thanks everyone, I am trying to hold it together. I keep pretty busy all the time with a teenager and husband and three dogs in the house. Plus I work seven nights a week so there is not much time to really get totally depressed.

Shirley, I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, big hug from California to you! I lost my mom last Thanksgiving early morning our time - I had a Turkey trot planned for that morning and I decided to go and run it anyway. I'm so glad I did, any excercise will make you feel better. After that I was able to tackle all the details and my trip to take care of my dad etc. I think life would be so much more difficult if I didn't excercise.

Sorry to hear of your loss.

Sounds like your brother is on his way to recuperation (and maybe some lifestyle changes). It is hard when things like this happen to people who are so close to us. It makes us sad for them and sad for ourselves because it brings home the question of our health and mortality. So your feelings are understandable.

If you are stressed, do some exercise. It will be hard to make yourself do it, but do it anyway, the payoff will be good for you on many levels.

As far as you going to the doctor, well people associate bad news with doctors because that is often what they have to deliver. The flip side is that if there is something wrong with you it is good to catch it early! emoticon

Hi everyone I am kind of depressed tonight. Today I learned that one of my sister in laws died this morning. When I was growing up she helped me with a lot of my homework I did not understand sometimes over the phone sometimes face to face, She was always there when I needed someone to talk to.

Then I learned that one of my brothers had triple bipass surgery today he is doing good tonight and the hospital is planning on having him up and walking around tomorrow and moved from ccu to a room I am hoping to call and talk to him tomorrow.

Tomorrow I have to go see the doctor which I wish I did not have to. I am not really feeling up to it at all I am already stressed out enough.
