The easiest way to avoid regrets is to ask yourself this question, "If not now, when?" It's a powerful way to put life and our decisions about how we spend our time into perspective"

Good rain yesterday even though the wind was fierce. |
Peonies didn't break in the wind
This notice time is winding down...saying goodbyes for 4 weeks is so draining. One more week.
Losing weight even tho my food choices aren't great. My WW points are in range but food choices are less than stellar.
Seeing Shirley doing better

1) working at the radio station again today from 10-3. Fun to shout out Gina yesterday who was listening in from Wisconsin |
2) ate my peanut butter cups last night and really enjoyed them. Shared the bag with Ray
3) hit 164 yesterday which is 40 lbs gone since Nov 22
4) compliments from my co-workers on my weight loss - many I haven't seen for months
5) Cooper - can't believe how much I love that little cat!

Today would have been my brother's 77 birthday. I'm so grateful for all the wonderful memories I have of time shared with him. I miss my Tommy! |
All the wildlife we see swimming/floating up and down in front of the cottage. The geese are out with their babies already....while the swans are still sitting nest. There are many, many ducks but no babies out yet.
Seeing so many friends and neighbors that we've missed over the winter.
Spent almost $100 on scripts (eye drops) that will be required following my eye surgery. I'm grateful that they will help preserve my vision! It could be so much worse....and I realize that.
Going grocery shopping this morning....something I enjoy doing. I think back to the days when I had a certain amount of money to spend on food...and that was that. Now, I'm able to spend as much as I want. Grateful.
Sending you a hug and ..

out of the hospital after 2 weeks. doing so much better, in fact, feeling happier than i have been in a couple of years. grateful. |
my measure of good health...i have it so much better than so many others and i pray i don't take my abilities and blessings for granted again. i have spent too much time dwelling on what i didn't have instead of what i do. no more.
medicine and insurance
money to buy groceries and a clothes with
friends who visited me in the hospital and brought me apples and japanese cherry blossoms lotion...made me smile to my heart.
good mental and emotional health. something broke in me after dad died 16 months ago and i haven't talked about it on here but by God's grace, i have turned a corner and am authentically so much better and deeply hopeful for the future. i wasn't able to talk about it with you but it has been a very dark time in my life. 10 years of care giving and not taking care of myself took a huge toll on my mental and emotional health, and physically, spiritually also. things are finally better, turning around and i feel my future is hopeful. i enjoyed coming home yesterday and feel so grateful for all my blessings.
hitting the 140's 2 weeks ago. up 6 to 155 after 3 carby meals a day for 2 weeks but my health is better and it will come off. i am eating for good health at this point, not weight loss necessarily.
I am so sorry to read you ...

were in the hospital! Glad you are feeling better and so glad your spirits are up. It is so terribly hard to lose a loved one, especially after being their caretaker for as long as you were. Know that you are loved and I am so glad to see you on here with us!|
So happy you're home
