5. Is my 'me' time

6. Caused me to become intimate with my weather station

7. Made me a great role model to my kids

8. Destresses me

9. Keeps my tummy flat(ter)

10. makes me accountable to myself

Thanks to everyone who entered this great giveaway sponsored by Jill at Lift Your Sole

You may remember there was a little bonus entry for suggesting a name for my muskrat friend I see on my morning run.  After reading the names to my middle one without allowing her to know who suggested each name the winner is...
There is what Mel had to say
"... Hmm Morton the Muskrat.. I am going to have to be creative here.... "
There will be a little something sweet headed your way.

Thanks to everyone who joined in the fun.  Come back often and watch for those hidden giveaways that I love to sneak in.
