Making a change!

February 2013 will be 4 years since I joined Spark People. I love all the resources available here & have made some great friends. The past couple of years since moving from Missouri to Washington have been full of ups and downs. I have dealt with the stress & depression by eating. Unfortunately I have gained a lot of the weight I had lost back so am starting over again. Here's to 2013 being a better year!

Thank you for the snowman! To remind us of cold weather??? Albuquerquians think it's cold here (but not so much). It got up to the low 40s today, but yesterday started out at that temp. Then a storm...you could see the deep purple clouds coming at us from over the mountains to the north...and the wind picked up, gusting to 55 mph. I have never seen leaves race so fast. (They were along the arroyos, the ditches used for excess water.) And my husband, bless his heart, but I didn't know he could walk so fast, so anxious to get back to the car. We did get sprinkled on. It very seldom rains torrentially like at home.

I am glad that it is finally your year! I know the feeling, because of the rotation schedule, we get every 7th year off for Christmas. Sometimes it falls just right and you get both Thanksgiving and Christmas, we got half of it this year. We are thankful that we are among the working!
