Personal Information:
I live in Central Wisconsin. I retired from my job as a speech therapist for a local school district in June 2008. Then I worked part time until June 2012. Now I am fully retired. I have been married for 35 years. We only have fur kids. Mostly we've owned dogs but in November 2013 we decided to give a kitty a chance. Tony is quite an experience.

Other Information:
I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. My favorite thing to do is to walk the dogs. My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2011 so we have had to change the way we cook and eat. For the most part, it has been a positive change. He has other health problems that limit his mobility so I care for him as needed. I also share the care for my aging father and my stepmother who has dementia.

    Yes the WOE needs to be reported separately for them to count for your squad. lol there are about four on the Horntails that never report the WOE' either so I think you are not alone.
    I am sure that some how we (the leaders) needed to explain it better.

    Oh, you should totally be able to buy just one. I'd recommend going to a bakery or something so you actually get a good quality paczki. The cheap ones are just gross. It's been years and years since I've had one but it's definitely something to try.

    Thanks for the goodie Janet!! :-) I hope you have fun with your dad today. :-)

    And, WOW! I just saw that "try a pazcki" is on your 2017 list. Really? You've never had one? They are definitely delicious - or at least the old me thought so. I never had one when I lived near Chicago and I don't even remember hearing about them. When I came to Michigan they were all over the place. Maybe it's super regional within the Midwest. Weird. Anyway, enjoy!!

    Have a great day!!

    Just read your fritter time comment. Glad you had Wednesday! I ended up working at the office for about 4 hours today, but have tomorrow earmarked as a work-free fritter zone :-)
