I ACT on Alzheimer's because I'm a daughter. There are lots of you daughters out there and sons and spouses and grandchildren and co-workers and long-time friends. I wasn't shocked, but the reality of the hands going up was devastating.
Who came up with the fact that we need to know what we're eating three times a day? What an annoyance! It seems every time you turn around, you need to think about food. Grab some breakfast on the way out the door.

I just love the new year. It's such a great time to start over, get a clean slate. You can forget those things you wish you would have done better, and just plain try again. I love it.
Now, I'm not much for resolutions, however.
I'm definitely a summer person and it's finally been a great one in the beautiful Brainerd lakes area. My husband and I often talk about because we live and work here - it seems everyone is on vacation except us.
"We've been coming to the lake every summer since I was a little girl. There are several families now, we love all staying at the same resort, taking in all the attractions at the lake and we want Dad to continue to be a part of it.
