Travel is Fatal to Prejudice, Bigotry and Narrow-mindedness � Mark Twain

My husband and I love to travel. We have done quite a lot in Europe, China, Thailand and the Caribbean. We love to watch the travel shows on TV. You learn so much from traveling and it truly broadens your horizons. One thing I have learned is that people are people- all basically the same--all over the world!

My Goals:
I would like to take charge of my weight and get healthy. I hate to exercise, but at my age it becomes a necessity, not a choice unless I want to deal with the alternative.

My Program:
I am staying within my calorie goals and eating healthier- working on more veggies. My downfall is not exercising. I am working on this, making slow progress.

Personal Information:
I live in a small town in northern Illinois. My husband and I have been married 48 years and have 2 sons. We have one grandson who is the joy of our life right now. We have a new rescue puppy named Luke.

I am a nurse on the brink of retirement. Just having a hard time making the big decision.

HI again. I had too many potatoes so I boiled and mashed them then I freeze them, Just add some cheese and milk and whatever else you like. I used a bit of old Bay seasoning. Added Cauliflower and broccoli cooked in the microwave. So easy . I love soups and cheese. Especially fast and hot. (((HUGS))) Pat in Maine.

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Yes, the nurses have gone above and beyond trying to help us. Now Caremark is sending the meds but we are still waiting on them. ((HUGS)) Linda Kay

I tried to make a dog coat three times still can not get it right. The dog is a Chihuahua crossed with a Doberman miniature. Her face is adorable but the wide stance and full chest I still got it wrong. It is a good thing It is small. I am using polar fleece from Malden mills from years ago. I think if I find some less quality fleece it will be most likely to fit. Do you have fasteners I wanted it over its head but number 4 will have fasteners. Pat in Maine. emoticon

I worked for a couple yrs. as on call so they called me when they didn't have coverage for the Supervisors and the thing that go me to totally retire is the Homeland Security decided we had to be ALL alike with terminology and actions so that anyone could step in when a disaster hit. Somewhat a good idea but we had to learn pages and pages of changes. I decided I didn't need to so did a full retirement and haven' regretted it for one minute. Last year I let my license expire as well. I can get it back within 10 yrs. if I need to return to work. Loving retirement though!!
Have a wonderful evening and a Happy New Year!!
