Not that it matters, but I figure if you clicked to get my posts via e-mail or some other technological means, you might be a tad interested. Life has been exceptionally busy the last month or so and will continue to be busy through this next month. All good.

Writing and sharing are favorites of mine, so I’ll be back. (Uh, if you’ve been meaning to throw me in the spam box, better still go ahead and do it.)

Comments are still checked about daily and replied to fairly expediently.

Today, if there’s something you’ve been neglecting to do which you know makes you feel better inside, why don’t you go ahead and start back at it? Whether it’s a shower first thing in the morning, cutting out sugar, or daily exercise, get at it. Or maybe it’s making to-do lists, making your bed, or reading aloud with your kids. Could be 30 minutes of absolute dead silence or calling a friend to offer an apology. I don’t know what it is for you. But you do.

Recently a friend of mine told me that Botox-ing her wrinkles made her feel better.

Ha! I’m not sure about that one. I told her to start eating real food and exercising again. She said she’d think about it. She said she seemed to remember she felt pretty good when she did that last year…

Please do think about it.

You die with what’s inside of you. What’s in there? Are you happy with it?

Take care,

      I didn’t even think about the week it is when that came to mind, but yes, you’re right! Especially this week. I think you’re referring to Easter, yes? But maybe not.

      Thank you for your super kind, encouraging words! I look forward to writing!

      Have a wonderful week and weekend!

    Hey Terri, glad to hear from you and to know that you are well. I had to put running on ice for a bit until I get the annoying shin pains sorted out, but I replaced it with swimming! No botox in the near future for me hehe. Have a great day! Take care.

      No Botox for me either! I’d probably end up with a flat affect, with people asking “What’s wrong, Terri?” all the time! Ha! I’ll keep my laugh lines and sun wrinkles. Heehee! That is disappointing about the shins. Swimming feels great too, just not as convenient as a pair of shoes and out the door. (Although with snow and ice and weather, running isn’t so easy in winter, right?) Do you like the swimming? Will you ride any bike when it warms up?

        Very much less convenient, but I love swimming so it’s not so bad. I actually go to the gym 5 minutes away during winter. I’ve got a membership for their indoor track so that’s nice. And yes, I will definitely be riding a bike this summer!

    Such a great message! We are on a family holiday in Thailand right now and yesterday I made half an hour to do some treadmill time at the gym. I did it when I had intended to nap and came back feeling so invigorated and vowing to do it every day of the trip. It also had the added benefit of making me feel less guilty about the cocktail I’d had earlier! Ha!

      I know. I’ve been working to identify the things that I know really make an impact on how I feel day-to-day and trying to be diligent to them. There are definite things (like getting my heart rate up a little, absolute quiet time, eating whole, laughing, etc.), and little by busy little, I let them slide. “Not important.” Then, one day, I’m like, “What is wrong with me?” Well, duh! You’re not doing what your body and mind are telling you you need! 🙂 Mmm. Cocktail. Sweet. Thailand. Lucky girl.

      PS: Hi!!! Good to hear from you!

    Men like that are few and far between. Intellectual AND can make his own lumber from trees on the property and make things from scraps and bits and just amazing. Oh, and he made the upholstered chair in their livingroom (won a prize for it) and knows how to sew. I’m not sure what he doesn’t know how to do but if there is something he will learn and do it well. They are a very dynamic couple and worth taking the time to watch their channel. I’m sure they argue off camera. That’s already been admitted. Hey, who doesn’t? Well, me. It’s pointless arguing with cats. They always win.

      Yesterday when I was teaching at our homeschool co-op, a mom was looking at the magazine I used to write for, Molly Green. He was in it! Big picture of him. I felt so “cool,” knowing who he was actually. 😉
