    Good for you Marianne. I did some crunches and weights this morning and am going to walk this afternoon.

    I have a new outlook today and seem to be feeling more positive so lets hope I get back into the swing of things.

    Hey Ladies, I don't talk much on the Disboards these days. I actually do more talking on FB. Your disboutiquer meet sounds like a lot of fun. I'll be following along in spirit and I expect to see some customs for the trip! ;)LOL

    Lisa, sorry it took so long to find this! Need to keep up with your trip and hope to make it up to Charlotte while you are there and say hello again!

    But then, since I didn't get an invite over here, maybe you were trying to tell me something...............:rolleyes1

    I'm using Robert Ullrey's podcast for running. I can't seem to find it on iTunes (which is where I got it) but there is the exact same one that someone has put on there (same guy, so maybe he took his down? I don't know :confused3 ). . . it's "Ullrey's C25K Podcasts"
    Ah! Now that i went in and read the description I guess Ullrey's site is down, so this guy put them up on iTunes so others could still use them.
    Anyway, it's 9 weeks (he says to do it every other day and you use the same one 3 times before moving on to the next week) so there are 9 different podcasts . . . I put my armband on and turn the volume all the way up so that Phalen & I can both hear the podcast. It comes with music -I guess it'd be called "club music" ??? but anyway, it's pretty good to run/walk to. The boys call it "Walk now, Run now" instead of C25K, but they're right, it does tell you to "walk now, run now" :rotfl2:

    I pinned something on Pinterest last night that i want to take a better look at today . . . it looked like a leg workout I could totally handle :)

    We haven't done C25K yet today - My mom went into work early this morning so she could be done early this afternoon - which means there was no one to leave Finn home with while Phalen & I ran - and I'm NOT carrying Finn while running :sad2: so we'll have to go later. I'm thinking I might do a longer walk on the days we don't run . . . because every other day is almost harder for me, because I need to make working out a HABIT . . .

    I love all the photos! I've seen pics of Jim before, but it just hit me now how Megan's smile is a replica of his! Megan was such a little cutie (now she's a grown up cutie -- even though she's not technically old enough to be grown up I think she looks much older than she is).

    Brevity is key (I know, not my strong suit), but we have an 8 AM doctors appt and I have to get a little sleep. Those pics of Jim and all of you HAVE to be commented on before I can rest though. I LOVE them ALL LIsa and can't wait to see the DVD of Jim and family so we can all know him a little better! :grouphug:

    YEA CHIARA!!! Hope that helped! :goodvibes
    OKay Marv, I DID tell you for all to see on your TR!!! Maybe YOUR trying to tell ME something, since I live here ALL the time and you haven't been up...just saying....:rolleyes1
    Yes, That was me, the picture lover...the MAIN reason for the trip :lmao::lmao:!!
    Look forward to it! :grouphug:

    Ok, I finally made it over to your PTR. I am happy you added us to your itinerary for when you are in GA. I am hopelessly behind on the DIS and your PTR is a nice way to catch up with everyone and remind me I have alot of reading to do. :scared1:

    The pictures from your scrapbook are so sweet. I love Megan on her dad's lap in the bull dozer. I think it is so wonderful that you and Megan are going to be spending some time in the places where you lived.

    I am wondering if I can figure out a way to get to Charlotte for the meet. In my mind it is far away but after looking at your ticker I know it will be here soon.

    Thanks Judy, Marv and Liz for you sweet comments about the photos....I am so happy I have scrapped so much of our lives to so we can go back and look at everything :goodvibes

    the trip IS coming quickly :dance3: and we can't wait to see everyone! Liz will be great if you can come up to Charlotte too!


    have a hair appt today...getting my hair shorter for summer! megan has early dismissal at 1115, so going out to lunch, run to Joanns for a couple things she needs for a science project and then back to school for conferences....Megan will be showing me everything she's worked on for the year :goodvibes we meet for a quick meeting with teacher and then the kids take over!
    then need to finish up a couple swaps and finish watching Hatfields & Mccoys tonight.

    August will be here before you know it!

    Enjoy your lunch out! I did opposite of you. I went shorter when it got cold. I usually let it grow in the summer so I can put it up, but this summer I'm keeping it short. I bet Megan is excited to show you all she's worked on this year!

    Let me guess -- Megan has to dress up as a Scientist and you are buying some fusible hem tape to make the outfit :lmao::rotfl2::rotfl:

    J/K -- you know I :love: you, Isa!
