Sometimes Life is Crazy

By Herb Caen:

Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed.

Every morning a lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

It doesn't matter if you're a lion or a gazelle, when the sun comes up, you'd better be running.

Hi Christi!
I thought I would drop by and check up on ya.
How's life treating you this new year?
Hope things are slowing down a bit for you.

After having a wonderful holiday season and a bunch of success last year,
I am looking to add to those successes this year.
So far I have lost 2 lbs since Christmas and am beginning to get back on track with food and exercise. It is slow going, but getting there a little at a time. Still having trouble with the exercise portion of that equation.

I am getting more involved in church...attending a women's bible study and
a weekly small group.
Then I am leading a small group in one of my teams on SP. Hoping to help people out and getting to know others better.

Been trying to get some projects done around here as well.
In all, keeping busy one way or another.

Drop by and catch me up on your comings and goings!

Take care and God bless,
Sue emoticon

Thanks for the sleigh goodie!
We had our first snowfall yesterday. Woke up to a winter wonderland.
The sled will be a good help sliding around on the snow.
Would go out in the snow a bit, but seem to have come down with the cold/cough and slight case of laryngitis that my DD had the past couple of weeks.

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had fun at my son and daughter-in-law's home this year. Was able to watch the Seattle Seahawks beat the 49ers too!

Take care and God bless,
Sue

I love your new page and background. I expect to see Julie Andrews, at any moment, coming over the Alps, singing .."the hills are alive....."

Hi Christi,
Thanks for the goodie and long note you sent me recently.
Sorry I did not catch up with you until now.
Seems like lots going on these days, doesn't it?

So glad to hear things are settling down a bit for you and your parents.
Things like these take so long sometimes. My brother finally got all the paperwork done for our mom to be on some government assistance so her home and health needs will be taken care of. So I can understand some of what you have been going through.
Now its back to gifts and visits for Mom.

I'm doing pretty good except for my knee...sprained it last week.
Going to celebrate my daughter's 18th birthday this weekend.
It will be a good break for her.. .a three day weekend and time in the corn maze with her youth group.

Having family over and everything on Sunday.

Hope you are taking care of yourself too...get that rest you need and have a great weekend!

Love you,
Sue emoticon emoticon
