Hi, I'm DixieD.
I am a wife, a mother, a research coordinator, a cook, a housekeeper, a chauffeur, an organizer, and am owned by three cats and a dog.
I'm trying to get healthy at long last. In addition to all my duties, I'm trying to put myself at the top of every day's to do list, and do what needs to be done to get as healthy as possible. I would like to quit needing blood pressure meds, and to avoid going on cholesterol meds.
My husband and I have been married for 28 years, and we just survived a rough patch. Now it's better than ever.
My kids are nearly grown, and are 23 and 18.
I have lost ten pounds in the past year, and working on it five pounds at a time.
My long term goal is to have lost 37 pounds by May 18, 2012. That's my daughter's graduation day.
I have joined my local YMCA and am taking an awesome class called Corepower two to three times a week. Since joining the Y, I've lost an inch off my waist and chest and tummy. Yay!
I'm loving life, and ready to love me.
Let's make 2012 the best year ever!

    Dixie, I'm sending Ghostly Greetings from my sparkpage to yours!
    It is the final October weekend before Halloween night.
    BEWARE to avoid the awakened Spirits cemetery tours!
    As each year brings haunted houses, ghoulish costumes and screaming delight!

    The brewing cauldrons are overflowing with potions galore.
    "Hang around for a spell!" the witches always cackled.
    Bats flying, spiderwebs spinning and creepy crawlers soon join the horror.
    Let's just hope, the rattling skeletal bodies do not become unshackled.

    The spooktacular fright night will soon be here.
    It's on October 31st, we will witness Trick-Or-Treat!
    Be sure to watch for the full moon to appear.
    Have a BOO-tiful Halloween evening without smelling anyone's feet!
