Its another hot one today in the valley of the sun!  Just spent almost four hours playing tennis...I must be crazy!  I felt like my shoes were melting into the ground and by the end of the game my limbs were quite numb.  I am now happy to be sitting at home enjoying the cool air conditioning, but feel satisfied that I fit in a work out, even if I felt like I was going to pass out at times.

RaNdOm...I love Craigslist.  I have decided that it is the best internet site for selling and buying.  Who wants to deal with paying Ebay fees when you can sell your stuff for free without worrying about shipping!?  I sold my first generation IPhone for $150 and then bought a 55 gallon fish tank with a beautiful stand and everything included for $125!  SO WORTH IT!
