    Summer Games 2016?
    Walking on the beam, doing Dip Walks



    Hanging from the bar. She had to climb the ramp and pull herself to the bar



    Skin the cats are her favourite



    Trampoline is a huge hit too.


    We are done gymnastics for this year. Tomorrow we start swimming lessons and will hopefully do 2 sessions before summer starts. She's had a grand time going since September, but time to get ready for summer!

    Tired...Just Plain Old Tired
    I have no energy or time it seems.
    It feels like I've had to wash bedsheets almost every morning...oh..... wait that's cause I have been...3 of the 4 last nights Jo has wet the bed. I'm tired of changing her bed. We are back to plastic and towels under her sheet
    I'm tired of getting up in the morning and going to work. I'm getting really tired of some of the people I work with...whole other topic
    I'm tired of being the Heavy with Jo
    I'm tired of being the one to take her everywhere. Tonight was the last night of gymnastics, swimming starts on Thursday and our regular bowling on Saturday morning.
    We changed benefit companies at work...it really bites
    I think I'm having some "SAD" issues and meds aren't really working
    Did I mention that Jo and I aren't on the new benefit plan yet? An oversight....it will be corrected


    I need a "me" day in the worst way.

    Sorry for bitching...just wanted you to know that I'm still around....
