Barbara
I had a gal graduate me from high school who went as Babs.
Interesting.
I am a Para at work, hence my name, I work with the SPED, special kids, and am in 3 choir groups, I enjoy it as I use to play the piano so I can follow the music and show the students rests, repeat symbols, soft, loud, (f p). Etc.
Have a good day.

Hi & Welcome.
I am another Barbara, though I go by Barb, I use to be called Barbie and hence Barbie Doll. The doll came out when I was 4 or 5. I have a cousin who still calls me Barbie. I hated the name due to the doll.
I go by both, my inlaws call me Barbara too.
It's an old name and you don't hear it much more.
Welcome!!

Is it as windy up north as it down here in lower Delaware? So brutally windy & cold!!! Hoping this is the last of it! Wow, what an awful day, huh? Hope you're holding up okay, fellow Delawarean! (Hey if you're ever down my way, maybe we could hook up?)

That's funny - my husband just bought me a bag of R.Stover SF candy! I've decided I'm throwing out the Atkins candies & am going to try to make my one treat a day a protein shake. Obviously I can't keep them in the house (I'd like to believe I'm stronger than them, but not sure right now!!!). The thing is, when I started Atkins after Induction I really didn't crave sweets or carbs. But as soon as I started having them, they became all I thought about!

Thanks for commenting on my blog & for the encouragement! Time to get stronger than the sweets :)
