 My prayers go out to the people in the path of Sandy...
stay safe...
 today I was telling Hotrod that Nanny's (my Mom's) birthday is on Sunday...that we are going to have a party for her...
I asked him what we should do...
He said we need balloons...
he loves balloons...
I said what else do we need...
He said a BIG cake...
what else...that's all....
I like the way this boy thinks....
 they picked up my daughters car today....
Hotrod was really upset by that....
he didn't like his Aunts car being taken away....
he has told everyone we see...that his Aunts car got smashed...
"That's not a good thing...but she's okay....that is a good thing"...
it is amazing the things they say....
I went to the gym tonight...
met with a friend from high school...
we had a nice walk on the treadmills...
a nice chat getting caught up...
I missed going for 2 weeks in a row...
life seems to take over sometimes...
well I tend to let life get in the way...
I tend to put everyone else ahead of myself...
or at least put my things on the back burner...
This weekend I realized...
I need to start putting working out as a priority...
if I'm not healthy...I won't be good to anyone else...
my goal is to go at least 3 or 4 times a week...
surely I can get 3 or 4 hours a week in...
I just have to do it...
put everyone else on hold...
I know they will survive without me...
 
I can't believe Halloween is on Wednesday...
this month has flown by....
Hotrod is very excited...
not about wearing a costume...
but the thought of candy...
he doesn't get it very often...
a lollie pop from the Doctor...
or a bite here an there...
Not from his Oma though...
so this will be a treat...

good for you - on making exercise a priority. :)

Halloween is our anniversary, too. He wanted a date he could remember. He's no good with the year, though...

We are fine! Thank you!

Oh yes, make time for taking care of your own health. If you aren't healthy, you'll be no good to any of them. :-)

I'm with Hot Rod, what else do you need for a Birthday party???? :-)

stick to that exercise, it is very important so you can enjoy life watching HR grow up and get married some day and be able to walk into the church. cutes witch in town. please don't let HR put his mouth on a balloon, my friends toddler was standing on the car seat, this was before seat belts and car seats, holding a balloon and licking it. it popped and went down his throat and he died on the way to the hospital. that was back in 1972 and i never bought another baloon for my children.

Here's to hoping you have a fun Halloween!

Sounds like you also make exercise fun. Meeting a friend there is great. Can't wait to see Hotrod in his costume.

Wow...you're having some close calls! Sending extra prayers your way, Deb. The fall flowers are beautiful! :)

Very sad what Sandy did to the people on the east coast. We are praying for all of them. I like Hotrod's party idea, that would be a fun one and easy to prepare for. So sorry to hear about your daughter being in an accident but sure thankful she is okay. Hope the soreness and bruises go away quickly. Praying for you and your family sweet Deb. Hugs

Good Luck on your new goal to get healthier.
What kind of tree is in the picture that looks like it has white flowers?
