     I finished 1 top and 3 backs last week and it sure added up. DD#1 now has 4 tops to quilt for me. 
     I haven't posted in two weeks but a lot has happened in those two weeks. Lorenzo's wounds needed tending to with daily cleaning. DH had multiple doctor appointments. It seems like I have been going nonstop for the last 3 weeks. 
     My health numbers are not improving although I have been following the DASH food plan and exercising 5 times a week for the last 9 months. In fact most of the important ones got worse. My body seems to be rebelling against all this healthy living. LOL  I am now walking 2 miles almost every morning with my little dogs. I am feeling better than before b/c I enjoy being outside more than the gym. I reduced my gym visits from 5 times a week to 2 times mainly because my workout partner stopped coming with me. 
     Last week my DGS#6 graduated from high school. I am so proud of him since it was doubtful that he would make it 6 years ago. Hopefully, he will get into college and not let life take over. DGS#1 had his shoulder surgery and it went well. DGS#2 got a really good job so he can support himself in college. DGS#3 is still in school trying to learn a trade for his future. DGS#4 is coming back to the states from Afghanistan sometimes this month. DGS#5 managed to finish a semester of college and keep all his scholarships. DGS#7 is doing well in baseball. DGS#8 is making money fixing bikes and selling them. DGS#9 is bringing up his math grades. DGS#10 is going to ace 2nd grade. So things are looking up in the grandson department! I don't worry much about my DGD's since they are all doing well with #2 graduating on the 19th. #3 is the only one I really worry about but she will get it straight soon. #1 has a full time job and is planning on summer school to finish her requirements for a degree. #4 is the top student in her grade. #5 is going to the second grade. #6 & #7 are also doing well in preK. So things are normal in the granddaughter department!
    This week DH is taking me to Marksville for a night of relaxing and then on Thursday I have a guild meeting and lunch planned with a friend. Friday is a sew day (I hope!) Saturday we have another graduation. Life fills up fast!
    Well, the dogs need walking again.
Lator Gators! Keep making lemonade from life's lemons!
