Hoo Hoo Hoosier

Why go anywhere but Indiana to see fall color! It's the prettiest I've seen---peak color. We made our annual trek to the Hoosier state and had a lot of fun. Wine tasting, birthday cake, fall color, and lots of special people. The view from our hotel room in the heart of the IU campus was an extremely old graveyard. And by the dawn's first light a gaping hole was visible in the middle. Hmmmmm---what evil lurks. But it didn't concern the Indiana students who were excited about Hoosier Hysteria! Hoo Hoo Hoosiers!

Sometimes small surprises can make-or break-a day. But this made mine. This is a dry erase board at work that our surgeons use to confer with families. This morning-someone left a beautiful message on it. Don't know who-maybe someone waiting for a loved ones surgery-but whomever did it--thank you! Too bad I had to erase it to make way for diagrams of bowels, bladders and gallbladders.

Back on Track

I spent the first part of the year getting fit--running, losing weight, eating healthy-and the last part of the year--not so healthy for various reasons. But today I laced up the running shoes and went to the park and it felt wonderful. And I counted all my weight watcher points and even have 1 point left over-which will go unused. Oh---and I lifted weights at lunch in our work gym. You heard it here---if you see me with an ice cream cone, slap it out of my hand!
