My goals to be met by the time of my annual doctor visit in September 2017:
1. Lose 18 lbs.
2. Have a fasting blood sugar below 100.

17 in 2017
1.
2. Read 6 books related to health.
3. Try a paczki. 2/24/17 I had never tried one because of the powdered sugar but they are so iconic. I had a lemon filled paczki and it was delicious though I'm still not fond of the powdered sugar. Good thing they're only available for a few days each year.
4.
5. Hot stone massage. 12/11/17 I absolutely loved it!!
6.
7. Try an ABC Sudoku. 1/30/17 I see they also make a color Sudoku so I'll have to give that a try too. 1/30/17 Decided to try the color one right away so I could put off dusting. It was fun but I wasn't fond of the app so I think I'll just give that one up. Sudoku is addicting enough for me. I don't really need a bunch of different types.
8. Make garden art.
9. Make a button bracelet.
10. Acquaint myself with our brand new library. It opened in November 2016 and I haven't made the time to visit it yet. Got my visit in on 1/24/17. I need to participate in their adult programming more. So many interesting things going on there.
11. Try a mug cake.
12. Make 17 new recipes. January: I tried slow cooker recipes for pea soup and broccoli cheese soup which I currently make on the stove but didn't prefer either.
13. Participate in the library's Winter Reading Program. 2/27/17 I turned my reading list in with one day left in the program. I didn't get any bingos but I did read or listen to 6 books between January 22 and February 28. I got six tickets to put in the prize boxes and I even won a prize. I won a gift certificate to use at the mall.
14. Participate in the library's Book Club. 3/27/17
15.
16.

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.

    Hi,
    I still have both. I'm taking some over the counter meds. No fun. It makes me tired.
    I know you will love the deep tissue massage. I think I had it when my sister in law did my first massage back in 2010.

    Have a nice evening. Hope your time with dad was great.

    I made my fruitcakes and distributed them locally at Thanksgiving and shipped the rest on December 1st. I'm waiting on 1 confirmation of receipt.
    We had 3.5 inches of snow mixed with ice, people who have shaded yards still have snow. I was at a funeral for a friends husband who died suddenly 12/5 when it really started coming down. God is good, I got home safely, even stopped for milk-I was out. Erik was a nervous wreck about me being out in the stuff, his aid must have slid a few times bringing him home. I am desperately trying to get some things done for Christmas and help my DIL who is finding out when she will have her shoulder replacement surgery -as I type
    God bless you, John and your dad and family with a blessed remainder of Advent. emoticon emoticon
