What's new?

I think one of the reasons I had not tried to get back into this old blog in so long was I did not feel I had anything interesting to say. That may be true but I'm still gonna say it.

So, if I had been writing over the last year or so I might have mentioned

  • Tidbits about what the granddaughters were doing

  • Stuff about my kids - even if they would prefer I didn't.

  • I have lost 115 lbs. Wow! Looking at that I realize it is the equivalent of a whole small framed person.

  • I also lost a lot of my hair along the way but most of it has come back. For those of you who have experienced it, it is a scary proposition.

  • My job absolutely stinks but I keep saying I should be glad, in this economy, to be employed. Some days, yes. Many days, No!

  • My friend and coworker, Karen, has colon cancer. She just found out a few weeks ago and it is stage 3-4. I think about this a lot and scold myself for whining over my little aches and pains.

  • I think I have forgotten how to share my life with a man. I've enjoyed 'em when I had 'em but now I am way too independent. Or is that another way of saying "selfish"?

  • I'm totally into photography these days. I love taking pictures of nature. I have taken some shots I really love, blown them up, matted and framed them. Maybe I can figure out how to share them here soon.

  • In trying to "get a life" beyond the walls of work, I have recently seen a few movies, gone to a professional baseball game, been to a bluebonnet festival, enjoyed some azalea trails and joined an online dating service. What a hoot when my own doctor was one of the very first "matches" I was sent.

  • I love Facebook and have reconnected with friends from long ago and far away.

That's a good start and the thing I need to remember the most is that I must start this little venture earlier in the evening from now on.

Glad to see you're back. Hope you're okay. Texans are tough! Just happened to be passing through and wanted to say Hi! Never found that Donna I was looking for. She really did look exactly like the person in that picture of Jlanders in 2005...exactly alike...could those twins be her daughters?...the mystery goes on!!!!!!!!!!! We're staying cool in the 70's in Wisconsin. My family near the Tyler area is roasting! Have a good day....best wishes.
