Brenda and I went and played tennis for 60 minutes but since we chatter lots I’m going to say we did 50 minutes and the we walked a 5K in 50 minutes (really it was 48 minutes but I’m going to round it up to say 50 for 50).
We are going to do this again on Friday. It is so much better doing this with a friend. The time goes by so much faster with a partner. I have really missed doing these things with her. We are both pretty independent and do fine alone but when we get together we push each other and laugh and just plain enjoy it.
I have heard back from Michele about her challenge for my birthday and she choose to ride 50 hardcore miles and I have got to share this pictures with you…Her stats for me:
Total miles biked: 50
Fastest: 20.62 MPH
Slowest: 10.60 MPH
Total time: 4.5 hours
Total calories burned (using Endomondo): 3, 259!!!!
Terrain: Hills, flats, country and city
Isn’t is wonderful to feel like this? I am so wanting that feeling again. I am very proud of you Michele. Want to meet Michele? Just click her name and be prepared to find a woman on a journey of a life time.

Yesterday Kim and her darling husband took me out for lunch at Famous Dave's. WOW, it was great and wonderful and tasted so good and the company was awesome. Thank you both again for such a great time. Kim and I also got to stop at two different thrift stores. Oh how I love thrift store shopping.
So today is a very busy day. Driving bus, day caring and then tonight am day caring for my bus garage boss and his grandbabies. They may be starting here when mom starts school but today is a test run. I was going to take the day off from driving bus but I figured they might as well see what my whole day is like and meet Brenda and tonight we’ll go see grandpa and visit great grandma and the baby baa’s.
An update on Mike….he is awesome, now. It was hard for him the first few days and it’s still hard in a room with 4 other guys but I know that they’ll figure out a routine that will work for them. Guys are so different then girls. We seem to jump in with both feet, make plans, lists and have everything organized within the first day or so, guys….well nothing like girls. His first day of school was great and here’s a picture of him in his diesel colors. He is just so handsome, if I do say so myself. :o)
Me, well I’m adjusting. Really I was doing pretty darn good until I saw this picture yesterday. This past weekend we got some wood to start redoing the ceiling in Mike’s room and I’ve picked my colors….want to see?
Well this isn’t the great picture of them, they are a bit brighter. One’s called Luscious Mango (that’s the lighter one) and Orange Marmalade is the other. I am loving them and realized as I was looking at them, so many other colors go with them.
Okay, lunch is done, it’s Barbie time. Take care my friends. Blessings to you all.
Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes. It was so awesome to get them and to still be getting them. Along the way this week we also snuck in our 32nd anniversary.. Pretty darn cool.
