New Year, New Me

2013 is finally over! It was one of the most stressful, challenging, frustrating, painful years of my life. I need a t-shirt that says I Survived 2013.

2014 is going to be much better. Here's what I see for myself this year: 8 hours of sleep a night, lots of fresh, clear water, a little bit of exercise, and fun. Massages, manicures, pedicures, spa visits. Soft classical music. Maybe I'll take a class or pick up a new hobby. Vacations. Chatting with girlfriends. Getting ...

2014 is going to be much better. Here's what I see for myself this year: 8 hours of sleep a night, lots of fresh, clear water, a little bit of exercise, and fun. Massages, manicures, pedicures, spa visits. Soft classical music. Maybe I'll take a class or pick up a new hobby. Vacations. Chatting with girlfriends. Getting silly. Relaxation. You know how the Chinese have the year of the dog and the year of the rat? This is the Year of Being Pampered.

One of my favorite quotes:

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

It doesn't matter if you're a lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.

Hey Girlie,

You getting any of that snow coming this way tonight?? It was nice while it lasted, wasn't it? Good thing I don't put my snow shovel away till June. Someone said the Farmer's Almanac predicted a snow storm on Easter. I guess they weren't too far off. Maybe you'll get to rev up that machine one more time before you put it up on blocks. Take care!!

Joan...getting out my mittens and boots as we speak....

Hi Christi,
Thanks for the birthday goodie! It was nice to celebrate my birthday with my family here.
We had a lot of fun that day, going walking and playing Frisbee in the park
and having two great meals together. We had teriyaki for lunch and made homemade pizzas for dinner. A great day overall.

Thank you for your concerns and prayers for those who lost their homes and lives in Oso. The slide was up about 60 miles northeast of us near the mountains, so we were not affected by it ourselves. It has been and still is all over the news around here. Cannot see a newscast without an update.

Please continue to pray for the people there and in the towns of Darrington and Arlington. They have also lost so much and are affected by the slide
due to economic and transportation issues. Many people and churches are pitching in to help out with funds and supplies.
There are other towns in the area that are in danger of large slides as well and people are concerned for their homes and lives. So much rain has fallen over the past couple of months and especially in March. It was the wettest ever on record. Other areas of the western part of the state are in danger as well. We had a very dry December and January followed by record rainfalls in February and March. It is still raining, but not as heavily as previously.
So you guys got the snow and we got the rain. Not sure what will happen when the snow pack starts to melt in the mountains...more floods I suppose. Record rainfalls means record snows in the mountains. When the snow melts the rivers flood.
So we are waiting for a little dryer weather. It is supposed to be sunnier this next week. Hoping to start my garden soon so we can grow vegetables.
Well, this is a long one...hope you got through it... emoticon

Have a wonderful spring!

Love,
Sue
