Thanks, ladies! I appreciate all the well wishes!
And thanks to Dee for letting me know about this thread.

Things are still going well!

The visit to meet the families last fall went well and so a (mom-approved, no less) engagement ring was affixed to my finger! In November I officially moved in with my fiance and rented out my house. This means my 2 mile bike ride to work turned into a 10 mile bike ride... but it's a nice ride and a good way to wake up in the morning!

We're getting married on 7/28/12 - and because we're doing it near my folks' place, my mother has taken over the wedding arrangement (and apparently daddy is paying for everything!!!! have I mentioned how much I love my parents?!?!! emoticon ). All I can say is thank goodness!! Could this bridal/wedding thing be more of a racket!?!

Anyway - I appreciate all the nice comments and just wanted to share a quick update with y'all. I'll be sure to post some photos soon.

Thanks for all being awesome!

Hey, Vicki ! Miss Twist is doing great. she passed along this message to me as well as several of her other Spark friends. I don't think she'd mind if I post it for you.

****************************************
*****

To all my Spark friends,

I've neglected you for more than a year now, and for that I apologize. The last 12 months have been "interesting", to say the least. Work kept me down for 12-16 hour days for most of last year and culminated in my getting rather sick at the beginning of this year. Call it a weakened immune system due to stress.

While lying in bed squinting at my phone trying to figure out who I should text to bring me medicine, I decided 2 things - 1. never again was work going to cause me to be bed-bound for weeks and 2. I needed a husband to run errands for me, so that I don't one say end up dead on my floor being eaten by my dogs like in Bridget Jones' diary :-)

In May I was able to finally start shedding some pounds with the use of hypnosis for stress management, green smoothies, and integrating exercise in my daily routine - like biking to work. Around this time, I also posted an ad on craigslist, and lo and behold went on a date. That's right. I said craigslist.

The resulting date turned into a head over heels romance and after we survive meeting our families in the next 2 weeks, we will be getting engaged and, next summer, married. I have the good fortune of having found a man who encourages me to exercise and eat well (and god help me, makes me drink wheatgrass), makes home made pasta, dives for abalone, can carve/build/weld just about anything, and thinks I'm a freakin' goddess. Soooo yeah. I'm keeping him.

As my friend Debbie said - I'm an overnight success in love, after 38 years of trying.

And so this, my friends, is why I haven't been around. In the frenzy of consolidating 2 households, 4 dogs and two cats, I had to decide what my priorities are and although Sparkpeople served its purpose for me, but it's time to move on.

So I bid you adieux.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement over the last few years. You've been wonderful.

--Twist

She's doing great .. is engaged and busy with her new life. She sent her good-byes a couple months or so ago.

Edited to add:

I just sent her an email saying you were asking about her and suggesting that she drop in here if she has a chance. :-)

and.. I just forwarded you the email I received from her talking about her new guy and their plans. (hope you still have the same email address)
