Weekly Update - 1/8/10 I"m just back from ice skating on the lovely outdoor rink in Cedar Falls! It was a blast to watch the sun set as I glided along on the ice! Its been a couple years since I got out ice skating, and I forgot just how much fun it can be. I remembered it was fun, but remembering and doing are two different
things! My challenge to you this week is to do something FUN you haven't done in a while, or maybe something you've never done but always wanted to . . . Let me know how it goes! I'm always on the lookout for more fun things to do. And I love it when you share your life stories with me! Ready, set, go!
