What's In This Blog

I created this blog for my journal. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In this blog I keep many of the things I come across as a member of the church. I also share my experiences on the ACE Train and getting to work, my experiences in Manteca where we have lived for three years, and other things I think are noticeable.

I am 57 as of Monday

What does it feel like to be 57 years old?  I guess the same as 56, except my back hurts a bit more.  At least that’s the way it has felt these first three days of 57.  I also think a message has finally sunk in—“I have diabetes.”  My lifestyle needs to change to recognize this fact.  Mostly I have only acknowledged my diabetes by taking the pills they give me; but pills are not enough.  I really need to make a change in my diet, and exercise routine.  If I could lose 20 pounds it would also make a difference—20 pounds now, then 20 more and then 20 more again.  And finally 10 more after that, and I will be at a weight I can live with. 
I took Tony to play tennis for my birthday.  I just needs to do something similar every day.  Sheri suggests gardening, and I think that is also a good idea.  Walking around the park would also be nice.
