Sunshine on My Shoulders Makes Me Happy!

Spent 3 1/2 hours poolside today with the little ones (who will be 6 next week I can't believe)! I have needed sun like nobody's business lately since it has been so gloomy in Illinois for 2 months now. April had a record rainfall not broken since 1957!! And I'm still waiting for my deck to be finished. I have now been waiting 33 days.

Unfortunately because everyone was moving at a glacial pace at Walmart this morning (including the bakery, deli and checkout) I did not get in a work out. Tomorrow I'm doing weights in the morning and then taking a hike later in the morning and then maybe spin in the afternoon...we'll see how it goes...

I don't know anyone who died serving our country, but my dad, my granddad and a very close friend all served our country in different wars. I applaud the courage it takes to risk your life for a country that doesn't always do right by its citizens (whether you chose to or were forced into it (like my dad). My we all strive for an iota of the courage so many men and women have to put themselves in the line of fire so that we may preserve the freedom which we take for granted. I am grateful.
