So, that's what was going on! When I looked out and saw her I tuhoght what on earth . Now I get it! I tuhoght it was just a hill thing, you know, get her used to hills, but starting with an incline is a great idea! Living next door (on the same busy road), I feel your pain. D did not learn to ride until she was almost 16. We lived in the city and I did not want to let her too far out of my sight. Yeah, we moved to a better neighborhood, but now we are on a busy road! We are right there with you, but I never tuhoght of looking on the internet. Thanks for the info, we are going to try that!!!! After all, M will probably have the same gym unit when she gets to that class.

I have been taking Percocet recently due to painful heparin instills and severe, insterstitial cystitis pain. The pain was overwhelming at times but the medicine helped tremendously. In fact, I had hours of relief and was able to sleep through most of the night without any cramping.
