holy cow!! you just lost 30 lbs, at least! speaking of books to read, you should join goodreads.com, it is an awesome way to track the books you've read and want to read, and get suggestions from others. anyway, that's my plug for the day :)

Your shoulders will thank you! While at the mall a couple of weeks ago Mckay wanted me to come with him up and down and up and down the escalator--I said I would go up and down once, if he carried my purse. He put it on his shoulder and soon was dragging it along asking why I have such a heavy purse- I bet I only have 30 items in it--
