I am home watching an HBO program called "Alive Day Memories: Home From Iraq" where 10 soldiers discuss their lives after receiving very severe injuries while at war. Very impactful program. I know I am in pain, but mine is so temporary. I am a WWII reader/studier, as my mother is a non-Jewish holocaust survivor (one fo few left alive to tell it like it was) and I have trqveled the camps and Eastern Europe with her. I am particularly interested in the Polish Resistance, the August 1944 battle. I also had some connection to Viet Nam and lost friends and relatives there. I just want to say that I am so proud of soldiers generally. I normally go to a service or memorial of some kind on Veteran's day, but did not this year. I always went be myself even when married, nobody else I knew wanted to take the time. I am so sorry I let this day go by without apropriately honoring veterans. I am so respectful of veterans usually. My parents came to visit last year (very rare event) adn i told them I would be late in getting home (but stbx would be there) cuz I had to attend a funeral for the soldier son of a coleague of mine and it was somewhat far from home. I was so happy to be there to honor that young man's memory, even tho it was so sad of a day. None of my other colleagues made the time to attend. That's OK. I did what I needed to do.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
