I'm trying to figure out how to get myself halfway fit, but every time I try to do something I end up being sore, or hurting myself somehow, or my arthritis kicks in and I literally CAN'T do anything. It's an ongoing battle that I refuse to give in to, but yet I never really win. Maybe I win just because I won't give up. Yeah, that must be it...
One good piece of news this week - this family here

called to tell me to expect another new baby sometime around September 3rd! That was cause for some celebration, let me tell you! We're very excited, and we don't care at all whether it's a boy or a girl because, of course, there is already one of each. I told them it could be a birthday present for me (my birthday is on the 7th). Their Lexi was very intrigued at the news that there was at this very moment a baby growing in Mommy's tummy. She wanted to know if it was coming out tonight. Or maybe next week. Matthew - he's oblivious. Blissfully so, as he will soon not be the baby anymore.
So our family continues to grow. Each new little one is a precious jewel, a shining star. So far, 2011 has been smiling on us. It will bring us a med school graduation in April for Zach and Katie, a graduation from the Masters program at Hunter College/New York for Tim in May, and a new baby in September (name to be announced then) for Rex and Ronna. Big things all and lots of celebrations ahead. I'd better start eating my Wheaties.
