Just when I thought DH was on his way home at last. They flew him into NYC and he is stuck with because of weather. It wouldn't be so bad if he could see a few sites but with the storm that isn't likely. We may miss Mardi Gras which we ... Read more

I woke up rather tired and pulled myself up at 5:45 as I do every day to get a head start on my walking. I walk half an hour before work which nets me a little over 3000 steps. I figure it is easier to face the 10,000 steps that way. D... Read more
