The Day I Gave My Heart to Rescue Cats

IMG_20180714_174613155_LL.jpg

On July 14, 1998, Chad and I walked into Lindley Park Recreation Center in Greensboro, NC, to pick up two kittens from a lady named Sharon. Not to keep. Just to foster until they found new homes. Little did I know that twenty years later, we’d still be getting foster … Continue reading

This Week in Space: January 4-10

This year, I thought I’d add a new feature to the blog, inspired by the Year in Space desk calendar that Chad got for me from The Planetary Society. I’ll be posting it once a week — hence the name, This Week in Space. And since the Cline Observatory at … Continue reading

Heavy Weights, Strong(er) Bones

FitNotes Workout – Tuesday 25th August 2015

Today was arm day for weightlifting, and arm day is LONG. We actually do arms, back, chest, and shoulders on arm day. Admittedly, that’s a lot for one day. It takes us about 2.5 hours to complete the workout. But now that we’re doing kickboxing on Mondays and Thursdays, we … Continue reading
