You may be wondering why I decided on the title I chose. Well about 2 months ago I decided to become a runner. I am a very slow runner, otherwise known in the running world as a turtle. I am determined to become faster and maybe someday become a racer. Therefore, I chose breaks out of her shell. Join me on my journey. As this turtle breaks out of her shell.

Old and full of Arthritis!!!

  • Ok, Ok I know its been almost a month since I last wrote anything, but we have been busy. We went to Dollywood for 2 days!!! Fun Fun Fun!!!! We met my sister Bonnie, David, and their kids, and my mom and dad. That was fun!!! I wish you could have seen Bonnie on some of the rides. The very first ride we went on together was a water ride. We were on this giant raft and it was so funny!!! Bonnie kept getting wet and yelling Oh Lordy, Oh Lordy!! I was laughing so hard I about wet my pants. Then the next day we went on a roller coaster and a ride called the mystery mine. Once again Bonnie had me dying laughing. Ok you had to see this mystery mine ride, it is like you were going straight through the roof. Bonnie, me, Jessi, and Jacob were on the very first car!!!! It was wild!!! One thing I can tell you about this experience is that I AM NOT AS YOUNG AS I ONCE WAS!!!! By that evening every bone in my body was screaming in pain!!! Earlier my dad asked me if I felt 40 yet!!! By that evening I told him the answer was YES!!!! You know this just gets me to thinking how truly fast time flies!!!! It seems like yesterday I was riding rides with Bonnie, and my friend Angie and we could ride anything without getting sick, in pain, and dizzy. But now I feel a hundred!!! We must remember to be thankful for each day we are given it truly is a blessing from God!!!! Oh yeah by that evening Bonnie and I were in the hot tub the rest of the night!!! All I can say is THANK GOD the motel had a hot tub!!!! I would post some pictures but my husband lost my camera cord( long story to long to post!!!) Well I better go Jessi is dying to write about her experiences on her blog!!!! Catch you all later!!!!

I had a lot of fun. I am feeling my age too. Who knew after 3 rides I would be giving up for the day. I really needed that hot tub. Love, Bonnie

sounds like so much fun I would love to be able to go somewhere like that with you guys again. I am sure I would be screaming hot tub too by the end of the day but it would be well worth it.
