I can't seem to drink enough water.  I drink a big glass full and I'm still thirsty.  I drink more and I'm still thirsty...

This living in the desert is going to take some getting used to.

Anybody got any tips?  My friend Tony says to drink more water!  I'M TRYING!  I see humidifiers everywhere.  Will give one a shot if anyone can recommend if it's actually something that works...

But you know what's cool?  I start my job at Jimmy Beans Wool tomorrow.  I'm so excited.  I can't wait to be a real part of this team.

It's been such a hectic week running hither and yon getting things to set up a new place to live.  I feel like I've hardly made a dent, but I have.  My clothes are still in boxes and my yarn is still in boxes, but I have 2 bookshelves built, furniture ordered to be delivered over the next while and two very content kitty cats sitting near my feet.  I have hardly really stopped to think about why I'm here and what I'll be doing and now that tomorrow is almost here...I'm really super excited.

I hope I can sleep tonight.


from time to time I like to look back at Facebook or my blog and see what I was doing this time "whenever"...well, this time last year I was 1/2 way to my weight loss goal and was about to spend the last good weekend with my Daddy.  My what a difference a year can make.


One thing we don't say enough, I think, is how much we appreciate the people in our lives.  I honestly couldn't have gotten through this past year without all my loving family and friends and all the people who supported and cared for me and encouraged me through every single big awful thing that's happened since this time last year.

Yes, I'm strong.  And yes, I'm positive.  But mostly I am because I know that people are here to help me should I falter or feel sad or negative.  You guys, all of you, help me through.  We're strong, more positive and more uplifted because we have each other.

Thank you.


In all my "infinite power and wisdom" I declare the year of hell over with.    (I wave my magic wand and really really hope it works!)


  1. Hooray! You have a great attitude. IM excited to see your new place when you are ready !

  2. I am waving my good juju wand too :) I need to go drink a glass of water now, ha! Thanks! I'm trying to drink more.
