I went to a bomb fire at some friends house. Although it took a little while longer to get across the rough terrain with my walker. I went. I did it. It was a fun evening.

Staying with it although I had a physical set-back. It would be sooooooooo easy to let it go. Back at it. The goal is where my head needs to be.

Staying on track even though my daughter was up sick all night last night. Sleep deprivation and stress are usually triggers for me but I want this more than anything right now..

�One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.�

I am proud that I have been able to stop biting my nails before my 60th birthday which is 4/29/15. My Mom shared with me before she died in 2007 that she did not quit biting her nails until she was in her 50's and I wanted to do that too. It has been quite a struggle, but I have finally managed it! My DDIL came over today and gave me a manicure!
