A new me!!

Where has the time gone...seems like yesterday I just started here. I've had my ups and downs and mostly stayed about the same weightwise. I really need a new plan so going to try again for the upteenth time. I just don't want to waste my time on the computer that much to invest in the time here. I need to move more and utilize my time better to things that are important. I also need to downsize my "junk"...I'm slowly getting there and hopefully will be healthy along the way.

Update: February 2016
This is a new month and a new year and a new me. I'm really looking forward to so much good happening this year.

Thank you for my Christmas tree. It's putting me in the mood for decorating a smidge. I like your idea of bringing in some boughs to help with the Christmas "perfume."
My partner had a manger that he really loved. I'm not crazy about it but I will put it up in memory of him.
So boughs, a manger and a couple of candles will do.
Hopefully my kitten will not do damage to anything.
I appreciate your ideas.
