Re: Teallys Tourtured Tuppys

Good morning, all!! Yesterday was a beautiful day -- sunny and 70 degrees. We went to the K-State spring football scrimmage with friends and family. It's not an exciting game since K-State plays against itself and wins no matter what, but we had lunch in the parking lot (tailgate party), and a GREAT group of people.

Temps today might hit 80 and I have yard work to do. Not loving that since mostly I have to get all the little spiky balls from the Sweet Gum tree cleaned up and the little suckers roll all over the place and spike me when I touch them. Wouldn't be so bad except that there are still so many left on the tree... Ah well, outside in perfect weather, so I guess I'll manage. I'll have my doggies to "help" me.

Oh yes, and here's the best news of all! My grand daughter, who is 18 and has Down's Syndrome, was elected prom queen last night. She got to wear a princess dress and was escorted by EIGHT of the senior boys -- they couldn't settle the matter of who got to escort her peacefully, so they all escorted her. We went and watched her get escorted in -- massive smile on her face, and today there are pictures of her on Facebook, happily wearing her crown.

Re: Teallys Tourtured Tuppys

Good morning Nancy, you must be so proud of your granddaughter! I bet she looked really beautiful! It's very windy here and showery. That hasn't stopped my husband from going out on his bicycle to join in a 60 mile charity run to raise funds to buy our 'special' athletes a new county team kit. Hubby cycles about 160 miles each week and is now training for a 100 mile run in aid of the local children's hospice in 3 weeks time. He says that being out on his bike keeps him sane, just like all my friends on here keep me sane .

Re: Teallys Tourtured Tuppys

Teally, We had snow here on Tuesday -- VERY late for Kansas. Looks like that might be the end of snow for the season, but there's one more overnight freeze in the forecast. Seeds can be planted now, but tomatoes don't go outside until mid-May. I can't believe the money that's spent on prom now... they don't just do the clothes, but also rent limos, eat out at the most expensive restaurants, etc. It's crazy!

Swah, I'm proud of her, but also VERY proud of the students at her school. My grandmother taught special education back when "those kids" were kept separate from the "normal" kids at all times. We've come a long way. 160 miles a week? Wow. I do get it keeping him sane -- my walks after work definitely do that for me, just that time alone to clear my head. I'm SO happy that we're finally getting the weather that will let me get back to a regular schedule with those. My doggie needs the exercise, too.

Re: Teallys Tourtured Tuppys

I have a bike and am cleared to ride it -- and no pain, so it would probably be fine, but there's a mental thing going on there and the thought of sitting on that seat... lol Nope, not ready.

Re: Teallys Tourtured Tuppys

Teally, I love walking! And I was not at all fit a few years ago, but started slowly - walking only as much as I could without feeling like the whole thing was a chore instead of something fun for me to do. When I got tired, I stopped, if I didn't feel like walking that day, I didn't. I still have that attitude and that's what helps me keep at it -- always doing it FOR myself instead of TO myself. I can be out walking around the park and get tired, then just call my DH and ask him to come and get me. He's always glad to oblige.
