How are "we"? It's Tuesday, a beautiful fall day & the leaves have begun to carpet the lawn. The Yankees did what no team has ever done & came back after being down 0-2 & won 3 straight & Derek Jeter is The Man!
Me? Happy & grateful to be alive--happy that my family & friends are alive, happy to have a job to go to, even if it's in "Anthrax-infested" NYC--just kidding---LOL
My 12 year old is a pitcher in a fall baseball league & he gave up a grand-slam home-run, much to his & my hubby's unhapiness...and you know what? It didn't bother me at all---that's how I've changed---it's like the Tragedy smoothed out all my rough edges & now I'm numb & mellow. Sure, I cry sometimes, especially when I pass the memorial at the Port Authority---bagpipes playing "Amazing Grace"...
I feel your pain, Marg, I really, really do. Fid

Another gorgeous day--fall leaves everywhere, but sunny & warm. Aren't we lucky?
Today I get 2 baseball games, 1st my 12 year old's & then my Yankees. It's a perfect baseball watching kind of day.
How are you feeling?

How are you doing today on this almost 80 degree October? The weather is so incredible I feel like we live in CAlifornia but our trees are so brilliantly colorful. Life does go on......I am going to get back on track with my weight today. I feel so much better when I work out and eat healthy and feel like I have SOME control. I just can't believe I worked so hard for 3 months and then lost all the benefits in 4 weeks! NOt fair....be the beauty of it is Today can begin clean slate.

You sound like me! Actually I was doing awesome in weight & exercise until I got bursitis in my knee for which I had to stay home from work. That's where I was, on my couch, ice pack on knee, tummy full of vioxx, puppy in lap when the WTC came crashing down. Ugh, I feel grateful that I wasn't there & guilty that I wasn't there---I'm a nurse in NYC, did I tell you that, Marg? My co-workers did major disaster, trauma stuff, spent days at the hospital while I stayed home with the bum knee. Oh, the guilt...
But, yeah, gotta move on, gotta move. Knee looks ugly, but no pain, so enough waiting for the next disaster, right? Time to live!
This IS weird weather...wonder how Halloween will be....write back, you know this is our own personal section of the forum, the Marg/Fid experience....Love, Fid
