Vacation 2011. 15 pounds lighter than 2010. Wish it was more; next year!!

My 4 legged child; Squeaky!

On vacation in Curacao March 2010. I want to be more comfortable in my bathing suit next time around

I have 5 pics in my gallery


Happy Fall!

Where did Summer go? I had so many plans for the beach, exercising, losing weight, etc. Time passes, whether we're doing what we plan to or not. I hope for a more productive fall!

I'd like to be able to wear shorts this summer.

thanks for stopping by my blog. We have great memories to hold onto once the pain eases up - right now the last 8 weeks are very fresh but they will soon be pushed back by wonderful ones from the past. ME TIME today was my prayer partner and wonderful friend calling me up to take ME out for a wonderful 2 hour lunch full of memories, tears and laughter. She had her daughter make me a pillow with part of the chorus of the last song I sang to my Mom which brought tears not only to my eyes but my DH and Dad too!

Martha thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments on my attitude - who I am is because of Christ who lives in me

My pain feels at times overwhelming - Colie and I have wandering together tonight and with all the tears each night tonight's are final tears - no more phone by the bedside at night waiting for THE DREADED phone call, no more trying to figure out the logistics of visiting mom at the nursing home and WHAT will we eat

We move on to who is getting WHO at the airport, what time do peopl arrive and the final finishing touches on the service and the ultimate funeral and leaving her earthly body at the cemetary

MORE tears but this too shall pass and I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me!

THANKS for the red shoes - do you know I have a pair almost like them! I laugh at being 57 and wearing SPIKES! The engagement ring has not been bought but I think it will be for her birthday and NOT sure what their plans on - they are on their way back from New Jersey tomorrow AM - she lives in MA and he in NJ.
