I'm finally taking charge of me. I've controlled everything around me (my home, kids, job, etc ) for so long that I'd lost myself. Time to put myself as a higher priority. My best friend introduced me to SP in 2010 and I joined but did nothing with it until January 2011. Had a great first 6 months but then lost interest. I have to regain the interest and motivation. Time to care about ME so that I can care about everyone and everything else. My bestest friend has made amazing and almost unreal changes in her life, losing over half of her body weight and is so close to her goal I can taste it... She is my inspiration.

emoticon You win the prize! You have a great eye! Those are P.Buckley Moss prints on my walls! Twenty-four of them anyway! Five of them are Lisa Geiman's. She a local artist from the same area that Moss is from. I used to be from the same area, thus my interest in both artists. For several years, I was a member of the Moss Society, but had so many prints, I stopped collecting. Now, I have more wall space and am tempted to join again. LOL!

Thanks for commenting on my Welcome to our new home blog ... and making me smile when you recognized my art collection.

Have a great evening,
Cathy

Thanks for the welcome back! That is great to hear that you have really picked things up the last couple of weeks! I love to hear things like that because I know that isn't easy. Keep up the good work because YOU are worth the effort! Things are going well for me too. I am in the process of picking up the exercise as well so I can finally hit some of these goals! Have a great week!
