I have finally been vindicated with the MSNBC article out today. My A-D-D and obsessive compulsiveness around never sitting still is going to allow me to live longer! Maybe only by a year or two, but still. That is two more years of enjoying UDF peanut butter-n-chip ice cream, biking on 70 degree days, and watching peach sunsets like the one we saw last night driving home from Cincy.
I got Maria off the couch tonight and biking down to the park with me. Mario ran around like a nutcase all day so he chose to ride with me on my bike. I couldn’t resist him pleading to ride with me when I look at him in his little muscle shirt. Those tiny little biceps and triceps hanging next to his side. Eat him up. And Maria’s little running shorts and t-shirt – she swears my attire off but little does she see how much she dresses like me.
We moved around all night long – trying out the monkey bars and running down the huge grassy hill. We could finally breathe since it was only 84 degrees compared to the 100 degrees it had been for the last few days. I love these types of nights – biking to the park and spending time outdoors – I will take that over a car and sitting inside any day. So here is to more research on the benefits of moving around a lot – I will be your test bunny!

I just wrote a blog post today about my son who has ADHD. Glad to hear the good news.
I just read it. I appreciate your empathy for what he is going through and I am sure it makes him all the better for him to have such caring and understanding folks. Take care!
Thanks – we certainly try.
