Well, time for my annual "look back and whine" session. This past year is particularly bad, because instead of losing any weight- even a little bit--, I have actually put on two pounds over the past 12 months! What to do, what to do....

US holidays make me homesick!
I have lived outside of the USA since 1981, so you think I'd be used to missing July 4th -- but I think I will always miss being with other Americans and celebrating our way of life particularly on that day!
