One of the reasons I have faded away from DU was an extreme need to get my health in order. I do still read the forums, but mainly if I am walking my hallway, which makes it hard for me to post. I can walk and chew gum, but not walk and post! LOL

Editing to add that Tikki reminded me that my boys were babies when I started coming here (younger would nurse while I was on here,) so here's an updated pic or 2 of them from ElderGreenKid's high school graduation!
