Oh, where to begin?
My health has continued to improve on my new vegan lifestyle. I have been eating well, exercising, and have continued to lose weight. It has slowed down quite a bit, but that is to be expected as I near my goal weight.
My husband and I were blessed with our first grandchild in August, then in October we were blessed with twin grandsons! So, we went from no grandchildren to three almost at once. What a wonderful addidtion to our lives!
My mother-in-law had to go into an assisted living facility, so we have adopted her rat terrier, Hobo. I wasn't sure I was ready to have another dog after losing our beloved Scarlet, but he has wiggled his way into our hearts and he is a good fit for our family.
My dear husband has joined me on my get healthy plan, and has lost 50 pounds. I am so proud of him, and we are feeling younger every day. Unfortunately, he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and will be undergoing surgery in February. We are doing our best to stay in the moment and not worry about what the future may bring, and it has brought us closer together.
We just got back from Mexico, and had one of those vacations where anything that could go wrong, did. DH fell while taking a picture, injured his foot, broke the camera, and ended up hobbling around the rest of the trip. I came down with a horrible illness.. still not sure if I had Dengue fever or H1N1, but whatever it was, I survived. We also missed out flight home, a hazard of this day and age of paperless, ticketless travel. But all in all, we laughed off our misfortunes and mistakes, and took each day as the blessing it was.
I will do my best to get some new pictures added to my blog and log in with some more frequent updates.
All the best to my spark friends and family. Happy Holidays to you all!
