My card used papers from It's a Guy Thing plus Colonial White. The stamps are from CTMH and Stamping Up.

Today Jim and I did part of a 75 mile charity walk. The walk is called Gracie's Heart after a 2 month old baby girl who died of a heart condition. Her parents decided to do this walk from Sault Ste. Marie MI to Cheboygan MI. Walkers got donations from friends and family. We walked 4.4 miles from our town to the next. I usually walk 3 miles every other day but this walk about did me in. The first three miles were a piece of cake but then we got out of the trees and the sun was blazing down on us. Some of the group are walking the whole thing. Each day is a 25 mile leg.

It will be quiet at our house over the weekend. Sam has gone to help a friend move into the dorm and Sunday afternoon his girlfriend is moving into her campus apartment so he will be helping her.

Next week will be busy. Wednesday we are going to an arthritis class to see what that is all about and in the afternoon I have a PT appointment and that evening we have a going away party. Jim will golf on Thursday if he doesn't have any pain. Wed. he missed the bottom basement step. Neither one of us thought too much about it but at bedtime he said if was still sore in the morning he wasn't going golfing. I made him go the walk in clinic after breakfast and the long and short of it is that he separated the cartilage from his ribs. He had a reaction to the Tylenol with codeine so is just taking the Motrin prescribed for him.

Very nice card. My husband would love it. Next year, I'll have to get some golf stamps. Walking for charity is a wonderful thing to do. So much money for so many great causes is raised this way. Tired or not, you've got to be very proud of yourselves. Enjoy the rest of your quiet weekend!
