    Beth: I am so sorry for the loss of your son. My heart aches for you. I am glad that church helped ease your pain.

    I am still working with Duolingo trying to learn basic Spanish. At my old age it is going slowly as I really get mixed up with plurals/singulars.

    Carol - Well done for giving it a try. It's supposed to be very good for the brain! ! Have you had a look at the Easy Spanish videos on YouTube? Even if you don't understand everything, they are subtitled in Spanish and English and it is a great way to get your ear attuned. I really believe that just listening, without really understanding, is a good way to make progress. That's the way I made the breakthrough in German, having tried, on and off, for years with little progress. Easy German really helped me get a 'feel' for the language, although I was lost at first. Duolinho teaches some things write well, but it doesn't give you that immersive experience.
    Good luck and bravo!

    Rori ... lifting you and your husband up in prayer... your brother also.

    Yesterday was not a good day. Heart sick with information we received regarding our son's death. Church this morning helped ease the pain. "Healing," if even possible this side of the cross, will evidently be a long time coming.

    I am sorry, Beth. His situation has been heartbreaking.

    After spending a couple of hours on a required online training for coaches, I woke up this morning to discover that all record of my passing the test yesterday is gone. I completed another one today, but this time I printed the certificate ... so at least I can email THAT to my LSC if something similar happens. I guess I have to sit through two more hours of doping training (anti-doping, what is doping, why it's unfair, my responsibility as a coach, etc.) Yay me.

    Two more days until my next "official" weigh-in. Hoping the trend continues. My husband says there is something wrong with our scale, as he weighed in on the YMCA's balance scale and it was a full 5 pounds lower than what things read at home (wouldn't that be an exciting turn of events).

    It's been raining all weekend, so we haven't done any of my outdoor projects. Need to figure out how to get rid of wire grass. Girls made brownies for dessert tonight ... good thing I'm not a big chocoholic! I am getting hungry, so I'm going to go make my dinner salad shortly, and hope the steak follows soon.

    Rori-prayers as you walk through this. All we can do is love them until the end. Glad you are taking care of yourself.

    Beth-sorry you learned more details. That sort of thing keeps reopening the wound.

    Pip-I hope there aren't any rules about daily posting of exercise! Seeing your stats makes me feel like a slug at times-but it is cool to follow.

    Had lovely visit with niece and her daughter who is 16 and a very mature, polite young lady (she was always a cute kid!). Ended up going through some old photos of my mom and my side of family. Niece took pictures with phone of some of them and I gave her a couple most meaningful to her. After I get back, etc. straightened out I want to make a trip to Maryland to see them.

    Went for walk this morning while it was cooler and then after niece left did another. All told a bit over an hour for the day. Has warmed up nicely today-in the 60's. Warmer temperatures coming.

    Going to give oldest brother a call to see what is new with them. Niece told me he had an eye surgery recently and isn't doing well with it (not sure of the type of surgery-something with tear ducts possibly).

    Take care all,
