Random Rambling

Over the weekend, my grandson Austin's team won first place in a major soccer tournament.  They played 7 games and only one team scored against them....In the final game, they won 2 to 1.  What an amazing group of kids!

Above is a photo of the gang I hang out with on Tuesday  and Thursday mornings in the Silver Sneakers class.  (Referred to earlier in this blog as the Chamber of Horrors.)

On the bright side, between Silver Sneakers, swimming, and watching what I eat, I've now lost 45 pounds and no longer have to take blood pressure medication!  Needless to say, I'm very happy about that!  My doctor was amazed at my appointment last week by the progress I have made on my own.  (To tell you the truth, I'm amazed as well!  I can't believe I've come this far.)

Ever since my husband had knee surgery, he has had difficulty getting in and out of our Chevy Impala.  He is over 6 feet tall, and the car sits rather low to the ground.  So this week we broke down and traded the Impala for the Chevy Equinox above.  Now he gets in and out of the vehicle with ease!  A big thank you to "Captain Hook" at Galos Chevrolet in Saco for his 

 Hope you are all having a great week!
