some people really dress up for New years eve!



We spend every new years with our closest friends.. usually just hanging out ,eating , having a few pina coladas, and a lot of laughs. Our kids have always gone with us and even now that they are grown, they still make their appearances. I have to say, the girls and I always have fun, but I decided last night that those men we are married too are really not a heck of a lot of fun at all. POOHY oh them all! Makes me think of that song girls just want to have fun. well we do inspite of them.

I'm not making a new years resolution for two reasons, 1 because I never keep them, and two because when I break them I dont want no one to know that I didnt succeed!!!!!!! Ha!
HOwever, I have decided that I am going to lose a little weight and try to strenghten my poor old body and heart with a little exercise.. now this has nothing to do with new years, it has only to do with what I need to do for myself.. and any improvements however slight, are accomplishments, so there will be no failing! there are no real set goals with numbers attached.. only an emotional and physical feeling which only I will be able to say if I have been successful or not!!

But I can tell you.. Im not going to kill myself on some crazy diet.. I'm just going to make some little changes that over the years, should make a difference in my overall health!

so blaah blaah blaah and Happy New Year!!!

oh, and one more thing.. this is last years new years bear.. but I'll be working on something today to ring the new year in creatively!

Hey chickie... I always enjoy peeking in on your blog :-) Your so talented!

Have you ever heard of TOPS, its a weight loss group that is neat and cheap lol...I think its like 20 bucks to join for the year and something like 3 bucks a month in dues. I belong to a chapter, we meet once a week to weigh in and have a meeting. Here is the website to find a meeting near you https://www.tops.org/default.aspx Click on the "Find a chapter" then you just type in your zip code and up pops meetings that are near you. First meetings are always free :-)They have weight loss contests and they give out charms for losing weight etc. Its neat :-)
