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!

Gail,
Right, none of us ever push too hard - LOL. Here's hoping the next few weeks show some improvement! Things are good here. So far, so good with the bone graft. Just annoying because of the location. I either have to wear a retainer to keep the old crown in place or wear a temporary bridge. Neither is ideal for eating, but maybe that's a good thing. It was one of my front teeth so I cannot really go without it! Implant an temporary crown not until April. In the meantime just busy packing up the house and getting ready for the big move!

Not silly at all, some times here we actually see the temperature rise before it starts to snow. Yesterday was pretty here, but back to snowing all around today. That's a okay with me, we don't have much water yet for the year. DH and I were commenting last night that we have only used 1/5th of the wood that we normally burn in the winter. We have it set up to where we use a row of wood from the pile per month, this year we have only used 1 row in 3 months. It's crazy warm weather here.

Have a wonderful day Gail!!

Thank you so much for your advice on my blog! Running was my quit project, but I never really thought of it as an addiction! I'm still not even sure if it's not being able to run, or just cabin fever, that is making me so restless! AlAnon is definitely something I might be able to try, though. I'll have to look into local groups.

I hope everything has been going well for you. Have a great week!
