Starting again

Wow unbelievable how it has been a year since my last post. Hmmm lets see what has happened. My granddaughter was born the end of July 2014. Oh she is such a cutie pie. Unfortunately I don't see her too often. That in itself is another whole story. Now we (hubby & I) are waiting for grandchild number two to be born. My daughter is due the beginning of April. They (daughter and son-in-law) know the sex of the baby. They are going to reveal at the Jack & Jill baby shower next month. Things are so much different today than years ago. My crocheting has improved a lot since last year. For the new baby, I have crocheted several blankets, several caps, sweater and bonnet with little booties and a bib. Hopefully my daughter will use it more than my daughter-in-law has. We'll see. As for me, back in October I was admitted into the hospital with severe pneumonia. I was in for four days. With all of this I had to stop smoking. I smoked close to a pack a day. I have smoked for over 40 years. So stopping was definitely extremely hard. The doctor did give me the patch which I wore for almost three weeks. Then one day I just forgot to put it on. Well it has now been almost 20 weeks (actually this coming Tuesday) since my last cigarette. Only problem with all of this is that I have now gained close to 40 pounds. Well I have now started again. I am trying to journal my food intake. I also now have a garmin vivofit, which counts my steps and monitors my sleep. I am trying to move in the right direction again. Saying many prayers and always reaching for God. Until later.......


  1. Glad to see you back! Congratulations on the upcoming grandchild and quitting smoking! Both fantastic news. I know you can have success with weight loss too.

    1. Hi Tammy,
      How are you doing? Thanks so much for the compliments. It is all good but I just wish I could be more devoted to the weight loss journey. Everyday is a new day, just keep on trying to move forward.
      Maybe we can buddy up together. What do ya think?

      Hope your day goes well

      Many hugs.
