UPDATE

Friday, October 24, 2014

Just thought I'd bring everyone up to date!

January 01, 2014 I started on a 'Soul-searching Journey'. I tell you all one thing, it's not for whimps! My life has been a 'roller coaster' ever since. Everything from personal health to relationships, to taking my cares to the 'foot of the cross'!

And, most important, following some very important steps to reach the most understanding of my purpose in life! And, you must listen for the Master's voice!

I am also pleased to announce I have gone from 181 lbs, down to 155 lbs.! I still have 25 lbs. to get to my goal! The older you get, the harder it is! I am 74 yrs. old!

My younger daughter started losing before me. Years ago she and I were on WW. I reached goal at that time, but, we both 'fell off the wagon'. Regained! We went back on WW Points Plus. She has lost 45 lbs.!

So life goes!

Hugs,
Janet

Trying again!

Friday, July 11, 2014

A lot has gone on in my life since I was last on here! So, I am trying again!

Over that time, I gained 5#. Up and down! I have left emotions get the best of me! I finally realized, I am only human. That will derail me right there. I am trying again!

Hugs,
Janet

CHECK OUT EDDIE'S PICTURES ON MY GALLERY

It's been one year today Sept. 28th, 2012
At 4:22 p.m. you left us on the Earth to join my other doggies and kitty cat at the Rainbow Bridge.
You left your companion, Lexie; your Daddy and Mommy. We still miss you everyday! Your bed and favorite toy; Mr. Mallard Duck; your collar and a shirt are in the same place as when you last used them! I've left them there for Lexie!

You left this world after kissing me good-bye, cradled in my arms, resting in my lap.

Rest in Peace; EDWARD the GREAT 11 1

    OH, I know how it feels to lose a loved fur baby to the rainbow bridge. it has happened too many many times to me. It just happened to my oldest daughter this past week. She had to put her family dog of 13 years to sleep. Her family has been heartbroken. If only they could have longer life spans.

they really become like our children. RIP Eddie.

GOD REST HIS SOUL!

Saturday, July 06, 2013

This past Tuesday early morning, one of our town
s finest young men was killed in Kabul, Afghanstein. He was a defense contractor with the A.F..

He was in his mid-forties. In the early 80's; he, DD2 and I worked together at the grocery. He left there and went to work at the factore, hubby worked at. Hubby was his boss. They also ran on the EMS squad together where he was a captain for hubby.

After that, he was dispatcher for the local police dept., later becoming a patrolman. Then, he went to the County Sheriff's Dept. as a dispatcher; later becoming a road deputy. Five years ago, he became a Defense Contractor. He loved his work training Afghan.s to become police officers. He was doing what he loved when he gave his life.

Being on our Church's Prayer Chain I got the call to pass on! I was writing all the info. down to pass on. When the Emmintis Pastors wife said the name as I was prepared to write it down; I felt a sinking sick feeling at the pit of my stomach! I heard the name, and, yet I didn't hear the name! I asked for the name again. When she repeated the name 'Kurt Muncy'; I replied 'Oh, no, Rose'. She asked if I knew him! Everyone in my family does! He felt like a son to me. He was home just two weeks ago, to help celebrate his parents 50th Wedding Anniversary! His body will arrive back in town between 8-9 p.m. tomorrow evening!

God Rest His Soul!

    My heart goes out. HUGS and prayers.

My own son, currently stationed in the Army in Alaska, was in Afghanistan only 3 days when 3 of his mates died from an IED. 6 days into the deployment he himself was badly wounded, but is recovering (that happened last August). Nothing can prepare you for such a horrid event but I wish peace for that young man's family. You never get over it, but hopefully the good memories will be more frequent than the sadness.

So sorry.
