This morning I woke up and went to the YMCA. I had to arise at 4:30 and I walked in by 5:00 A.M. I almost turned around and went home once I realized I didn't have my card but the guy at the desk waved me in with my driver's license. I had earphones and knew I could watch TV whiled I walked on the treadmill. The only one left with the capability left me a little embarrassed because it was beside a man doing a full run. I'm sure I looked a little pathetic working out next to Captain America but I burned 250 calories and by the end of my time I felt I had at least accomplished something! It's before 7:00 A.M. and I've had a shower, I'm dressed, eating oatmeal sweetened with a banana and kissed my husband goodbye for work. I'll have to admit when my husband gave me an "ad-a-boy" this morning and flexed his arm at felt pretty good. I also did 25 sit-ups. I know it's a small step by all accounts but this little victory will fuel my spirit and spur me on to tomorrow. Watch out world...I'm back!

It's been a while since I've posted anything. I have just finished a full year of school at Cleveland State Community College. I have going back to school for so long because quite frankly, I didn't think I was smart enough to pass. After loss sleep and neglecting my family I pulled 4.0's both semesters and ended up on the President' List! It is such a relief to now have a break. If all goes well I will graduate at the end of the Fall semester and attend Lee University in the Spring. I finally feel like I'm going to accomplish a goal that has been hanging over my head since I said "I do." But that's another story.

Guess who's walking? It brings tears of joy to my eyes to my see my baby walking all by herself. It is going by so fast and I can't find the slow-down button. She started walking full speed yesterday and today she pushed open the gates to the stairs and was up them before I could reach her. She has fallen twice and has a pump knot on her forehead but as I remember from Elizabeth, try and try again. She loves Curious George and will point to him in her books and say, "Goige, Goige." My little Elizabeth is such an attentive big sister. She watches over and immediately apologizes if Abigail falls when they're in the same room, even though it's not her fault. She is so sympathetic and observing of everyone that I find myself trying to act up beat in front of her even when I don't feel so up beat. My girls are so precious and wish time would stand still.....but it won't.

This time in my life is so wonderful with a baby in my arms and a daughter to share laughter and humor with. The summer is here and I'm looking forward to all of the memories we will make this summer.
