Well, I did my final weigh in today and came out down 3 pounds from when I started! Yay!
Started a new challenge this month so I hope I can keep up with all that is going on. My Aunt died this weekend of an aggressive form of leukemia. I decided I will fly out to Seattle for the funeral despite our tight funds after our trip to Florida for Christmas. It was a tough decision but I ultimately decided that family comes first. They were there for me when my mom was dying of ovarian cancer so I wanted to be there for them in their loss too. My mom died New Year's Day making it difficult not too go. My sisters are so excited I am coming. It will be an adventure. My oldest brother has never had to do a road trip with us before so I know he'll think we are all nuts! I look forward to the family time.
A friend let me know today that she has breast cancer. It is in one side as well as the lymph nodes. Scary. My sister still seems to be doing well after her double mastectomy. She's seeing the world while she can. They went to Germany last fall. She now has the bug and wants to go to Ireland. I loved Ireland. So envious.
DH is gunning to buy a new boat this weekend. Of course bigger and better than his last. I know he'll use it too. He went out every weekend with the last one.
