this is a brand new year and i am sure it will have it's challenges. the job i took last april was the fit i have been looking for. i work with a good group of people who genuinely want to hear what i have to say about how to help the departments we are supervising.

my daughter, daughter-in-law and i are doing a family fit challenge from now to the end of the year. my goal for this year is to thinner and fitter by dec 2, which will be our 35th wedding anniversary. hard to believe it has been that long. we have had our rough spots like everybody else, but have come thru them stronger. We have raised 2 great children and we have 3 grandchildren who are great.

Cant wait to see what this year brings for me and my family.
