    Midwest Meet Up Fall 2015 ?

    Karen F and Karen C: I am still planning to drive. And I have a NEW SUV as of last week. Maybe that new-car smell will still be lingering by Oct 15, and this will be my first time taking it on a road trip. So fun. We'll need to set up a departure time on Thursday. Best way to contact me is a private message through Facebook, because I can't seem to get notifications to work for ScrapGirls. I usually scrap on a desktop computer, but loaded PSE onto the laptop for the trip. Now I need to put some photos and kits onto a flash drive and I'll be set for a scrapping marathon. Is there a photowalk planned?
  2. Did your leg get better, did you tear something? I was thinking about you and just wanted you to feel stronger again! Sometimes injuries take so long to heal.

      Thank you so much for asking. The MRI showed a torn meniscus and a partial tear to the MCL, which is the ligament along the inside of the knee. Doctor says the MCL will heal on its own since it has a pretty good blood supply. The meniscus, however is a different story. I've scheduled arthroscopic surgery for November 6th. Had to wait that long because of some October travel.

      It's really frustrating to me because I felt like I had finally gotten into a pretty good exercise rou...

    Not taking part in this challenge, but I'm totally intrigued by your layouts as I see them being added to the gallery. Beautiful layouts. So often we scrap about our children and loved ones and overlook ourselves. Thanks for sharing all the layouts. They are inspiring.

    Midwest Meet Up Fall 2015 ?

    Only 31! Wow! Checking in after a bit of an absence. But my son and his finance are now husband and wife and honeymooning in California. It's been a busy month and a week with a house full of company. So looking forward to a weekend for just having fun and relaxing. How many do we have total for the meet-up now? Anyone have a list?
  6. just read your overview and realized you are the same age as me, 61 and going strong with a trainer, good for you! i thought about using a trainer to help me start on weights, but not yet--I just work out on machines. Anyway, just wanted to say HI!

      I think the weight lifting is good as we age. I've tried doing it on my own like you do, but she makes me work harder than I do by myself. And having a weekly appointment keeps me accountable.

      Unfortunately, she was also pushing me to do a lot of cardio on the off days and now I've run into knee issues, which sidelined me from all of it. Seeing the orthopedic doc on Thursday. I suspect I'll be doing physical therapy before I do personal training again.
