Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

It's time to quit lurking and start doing...

Hi Gail, how's life in the snow? Getting any easier? I still remember having to dig my car out of PA snow drifts before heading to work many years ago. Don't miss it at all! It is beautiful though. I am looking out the window at rain, wind and gray skies, typical NL winter. About to get on the treadmill. just thought I'd stop by to say hi! emoticon emoticon

Yikes! 39 inches! The most we were in within a 48 hr period was 24! The drifts were close to 5 ft. Once the earth movers came out to plow our country roads, the plowed snow was so tall it looked like a tunnel we had to go through, except for the top of course. Be careful....and hope you don't lose power! Glad your chickens are safe and warm. Sorry you have to go through this. I guess 48 degrees sounds balmy to you....should not have mentioned that today with all you are going through. emoticon
