These are more than just pretty pink shoes. These are my motivation to get my butt up off the couch and exercise. These shoes whisper to me "Come put us on and go for a walk." Then when I am walking they yell at me "You call that exercise? Move faster woman!" These pretty pink shoes are my ticket to looking and feeling better...and I will be stylish the entire time :)

Speaking of which, crazy describes the last 21 years with that multi-named girl :) But I loved almost every minute of those years...gotta be honest, some minutes I want to forget! Becky is still a goofy girl and I hope she never changes. Happy birthday to the girl with the newest nickname...Birthday Girl!

Name the two major religious holidays...Christmas and Easter right?

Now someone explain to me why those two holidays are also the most non-religious? Christmas means Santa and presents under the tree. Easter means a bunny hides eggs with treats in them.

There are no presents or goodies for St. Patrick's Day, Memorial Day, President's Day, Labor Day, New Year's Day...I guess there is for Halloween, but that day is about as non-religious as you can get! Don't know what made me think about all of this today, but really, it confuses me!

First of all, how to you get a fat man coming down your chimney (breaking in!) and leaving gifts from the birth of Christ? I guess you could stretch it and say the three wise men left gifts for Jesus, but I can say with confidence that none of them were dressed in a red velvet suit.

The one that really baffles me is why a bunny delivers eggs. Bunnies don't lay eggs. Chicks lay eggs, but not brightly colored ones unfortunately. I really see no tie to the resurrection in that one.

I guess people just started something and it caught on...maybe I will start a new tradition and see if I can get the world to notice. Hmmm....

I want to sit in a rocker on a front porch, with Dan in a rocker next to me. I want to look out onto my front lawn and see lots of green grass and sunshine. I want to see on that green grass my children, grandchildren and maybe some great-grandchildren running and laughing and enjoying life. I want to grow old with my family around me.
