Altering Habits


Married, 2 sons - one in college, one all growed up. Live in upstate NY (the part with cows) with my wife of 27.3 years in our newly emptied nest. Generally trying to love life. Oh yeah - quit smoking Aug. 22, 2004 @ 7:00pm, but who's counting? Seem to have replaced my nicotine addiction with an obsession to work out & get healthy - even if it kills me.

update: Still fixing stuff as fast as I can!. As you may have noticed, Diaryland is being renovated, which is still in progress. Bugs are all being fixed. The new design should work on phones much better than the old one, and pages in the members area are being converted to the new look one by one, so they can be tested. Please email help@diaryland.com with any new problems, but things that are already bugs should be fixed soon!
