Making a change!

February 2013 will be 4 years since I joined Spark People. I love all the resources available here & have made some great friends. The past couple of years since moving from Missouri to Washington have been full of ups and downs. I have dealt with the stress & depression by eating. Unfortunately I have gained a lot of the weight I had lost back so am starting over again. Here's to 2013 being a better year!

When we blended our families, we started out with a lot of kids. I had 5 and he had 3. Now 3 of the children have 8 children of their own, in blended families, so it doesn't take long to add up!

MARTY, Thanks for the comment on my Blog. I have so little time to myself these days but I refuse to give up Spark friends. I type too slow but next week another trigger finger will go under the knife. Cortisone never works for me. I have lost count of the numbers. Both thumbs for certain and about 6 fingers.
Dr. says diabetics get them often and being a seamstress has a big impact. I tailored his suits so he knows me well. Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

We finally got some rain in the evening but it didn't last very long. Yes, I probably do need more rest these days. I like to think that I am ready to get back to the old me but I am not so sure.

Thank you for the happy face, my dear friend! I have been so busy with this therapy, it's about to get the best of me. It sure makes me feel good to know that there is someone out there still thinking about me!

I did think that the mail was what was causing the pain but after only one therapy session I was not nearly as sore when I delivered the mail again. I just let those muscles get weak and now they need strengthening!

Hello Martha,

Thanks so much for taking the time to read my Priceless blog.

I agree with you about the memories. I'm new at this grand life, but I do want to plan good, fun memories into my grandchildren.

I appreciate your friendship.

Hugs
