I spend my free time crocheting, beading, reading (mostly fantasy/sci-fi), watching tv, and playing EverquestII.

My Goals:
I would like to get below 200 pounds.
To become more patient with my husband and his needs.
To quit crawling into a "cave" when things are rough, and turn to my friends more for support during bad times.
To quit being embarrassed to ask for help.

My Program:
I'm exercising more. Going for walks with hubby. That means pushing his wheelchair, a lot, sometimes. Othertimes, I have to walk r e a l slow. But, it's a walk!

Personal Information:
Originally, I was born in San Diego, California. I married a sailor to see the world, and ended up seeing the US. Somehow, when he retired, we ended up in upstate NY, then over to Massachusetts, and now, back to the Syracuse area of NY.

Thanks for visiting my blog again! You're not the first person to suggest sharing some recipes on the blog. I'll have to get to that. Pumpkin recipes first and then I guess soup will be next on the agenda... I'll have to look for small servings. I like to make enough to freeze for lazy workday evenings.

Thanks for the suggestions on my blog. I love the idea of an inspiration board. I love to collect sayings and inspirational quotes. That would work well for me! emoticon
