My goals to be met by the time of my annual doctor visit in September 2017:
1. Lose 18 lbs.
2. Have a fasting blood sugar below 100.

17 in 2017
1. Try kettlebells.
2. Read 6 books related to health.
3. Try a paczki. 2/24/17 I had never tried one because of the powdered sugar but they are so iconic. I had a lemon filled paczki and it was delicious though I'm still not fond of the powdered sugar. Good thing they're only available for a few days each year.
4. Pie at Norske Nook.
5. Hot stone massage.
6. Play cards at the Senior Center.
7. Try an ABC Sudoku. 1/30/17 I see they also make a color Sudoku so I'll have to give that a try too. 1/30/17 Decided to try the color one right away so I could put off dusting. It was fun but I wasn't fond of the app so I think I'll just give that one up. Sudoku is addicting enough for me. I don't really need a bunch of different types.
8. Make garden art.
9. Make a button bracelet.
10. Acquaint myself with our brand new library. It opened in November 2016 and I haven't made the time to visit it yet. Got my visit in on 1/24/17. I need to participate in their adult programming more. So many interesting things going on there.
11. Try a mug cake.
12. Make 17 new recipes. January: I tried slow cooker recipes for pea soup and broccoli cheese soup which I currently make on the stove but didn't prefer either.
13. Participate in the library's Winter Reading Program. 2/27/17 I turned my reading list in with one day left in the program. I didn't get any bingos but I did read or listen to 6 books between January 22 and February 28. I got six tickets to put in the prize boxes and I even won a prize. I won a gift certificate to use at the mall.
14. Participate in the library's Book Club. 3/27/17
15. Complete Master Gardener Level 2 Training.

Personal Information:
I live in Central Wisconsin. I retired from my job as a speech therapist for a local school district in June 2008. Then I worked part time until June 2012. Now I am fully retired. I have been married for 35 years. We only have fur kids. Mostly we've owned dogs but in November 2013 we decided to give a kitty a chance. Tony is quite an experience.

Other Information:
I love to read, cross stitch and crochet. My favorite thing to do is to walk the dogs. My husband was diagnosed with celiac disease in January 2011 so we have had to change the way we cook and eat. For the most part, it has been a positive change. He has other health problems that limit his mobility so I care for him as needed. I also share the care for my aging father and my stepmother who has dementia.

    I am pretty happy with my progress so far cleaning out the house. I'm just trying to stay on task. Once I start traveling this summer, progress will slow a bit, so I'm trying to get as much done early on.

    I hope you're enjoying your free weekend, and getting chance to relax a bit. Head butts to you and Tony!

    I'm afraid you'll be disappointed! I'm very conservative with color...I really only go to get my callouses scraped and more importantly...the wonderful foot and leg massage I get!
    Hope you're feeling better...

    I love the zoo. So happy to hear about your time with dad and sister. Does your dad love seeing all the animals? It's neat to see them all as they look back at us.
    It's sad about your pain. Will you call your doctor this week to see why?

    We have a wild animal place here called Fossil Rim Wildlife Center in Texas. I went once with my daughter and granddaughter and we Loved it. They went back by themselves last year. You can feed the animals from your car. Only the lions are enclosed. I want to go back soon.

    Have a good time planting today.
    Sending my daily hugs and prayers for you to get better in your legs,
