Things have changed so much in the last year of my life. Not even sure where to start. Not sure I even want to start. Dad and Mom both went to heaven last year. So Jamie, my son is gone(died dec. 09) Dad died in July2012, Mom died sept 2012. That just leave My husband and me. I feel like I have just started my life totally over from nothing. I Have finally snap out of the depression from it all. And went back to work. Started doing some on-line classes. Things are starting to look up. Just in caes you are wondering on the weight lose. I have made it down to 220 pounds I went down to 212 but It found me again. I have stayed below 220. I really hope to lose at least another 20 pounds. But, total weight lost is 268 pounds. Lap-band Does work. I'll try not to wait a year before my next up-date.

Being home bound with hubby and dog one day we'll make it we always do.
Have. You ever noticed how you can be going thru like minding your own business and of no where no cause to you life knocks you down.My problem is letting everyone else drag me in their mess.
All of a sudden, well Kim said this and I don't know how. But,I end up hanging myself at the end of the rope. Well at 45, I decided I don't care what sister is mad at which sister,neverless why!

Well it seems everyone is out of money. Shop is slower now. More than I can ever remember it being. Noticed calacol goose went out of business so did the older couple across the street from them. I worry more for our guys they I do for ourselves. But,world is full of what ifs. A person could make their sick on just what ifs. I choose to believe in God and know he will take care of me. No matter what happens in this world.
Cooking Dad up some chicken and dumplings already cooked a pot of deer chili today.
He is lucky....he has those sad eyes and turns his head just right looks at me so pittaful.He knows I would do anything for him and mom. :-)

Today is hubbys birthday.
I love him more every year.But,just like everyone we have our moments,days!
Today when I got up God told me be Thankful for what you have.
I knew what he ment as so as he said it. Its my house I have been so focus on how small it is and wanting to move into a larger one. That I forget to be Thankful for just having a house. I know a couple that lost there house could not afford the payments anymore. I know another couple that has been living in a OLD R.V. for years.That leaks and is cold.
So, just thinking my house is paid may be small and alittle ruff around the edges.But,its mine. So today I thank God for everything he has given me
Including my family,friends,hubby and our small house.
