OK, So I told everyone that my Darling Husband got me a gym membership for Christmas. I've been putting off going until yesterday. This was just an evaluation, mind you. OK sounds easy. First all vitals were taken. I was enlightened to the fact that I need to lose 10 pounds, blood pressure, high, (could it be that I just don't want to be here?) I shrunk from being 5'10 to 5'8? hmmm and my body fat is on the high side. Feeling REAL good about myself, RIGHT...Ok so then it's off to the machines. Walked a little, biked a little and warmed up the old muscles. Now remember, I am still the ATHLETE I was in college, before knee replacement, shoulder repair, fibro. My brain must have taken a vacation for 36 years, cause I'm still able to play college basketball and all that goes with my ATHLETIC body! I am standing next to the trainer when all of a sudden I start to see a bright white light, ears are ringing and I feel like I am about to pass out. I am so glad that I mention this to her because I would have been sprawled out on the floor! SO I ended up sitting with my head between my legs, while I'm sure all of the genuine ATHLETES are watching....I could have cried. Reality hits me hard. Sorry to have rambled, but I am so discouraged. I am embarrased to go back, but I know I have to. I love you gus and thanks for listening...

Everything was going great, everyone swooned over Tank, but on the walk back (which is about 2 blocks away) I looked down at Danno's hands and they were turning purple, even his...
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
