A little update

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

WOW I didnt realize it's been so long since I last wrote a blog entry! emoticon I have truly missed being a part of SP. The last few months can be summed up in 1 word: OVERWHELMING!

Work has consumed me so much to the point that I am ready to look elsewhere. It was a great place to be for 4 years, but when you start bringing home the stresses and attitude home and show it here - well that's not appropriate. It finally broke me down and I am hoping and praying that God will open another door to something bigger and better with more opportunity. emoticon

I had my first lap band adjustment in November and it went really well - to date I've lost almost 38 lbs. I feel so much better, and now it's time to have a 2nd one. During the holidays it was WONDERFUL to not over-indulge and pack on the pounds. Instead I lost weight! emoticon And so now here we are in another decade! It blows my mind that we're here.

In early November my son Sam and I flew to Branson MO for a week long vacation to meet my in laws for the week. We had such a GREAT time and got some much needed time away.

Our kids had a fantabulous Christmas, and the best gift for my b'day and Christmas were having my Dad another year. After major open heart surgery he's doing so well. What a GIFT.

Today I am officially a college student again. Good things are coming!

Here's to health, life and happiness! - Of course to losing more again in 2010!
