I lost over 100 lbs. and quit smoking at the same time.

Yes, I know he is far from a baby, but, I have missed him so much. He will be here on February 10th and staying for a week!! I can't wait!!!
That's great news! Enjoy every quality moment with your son.

I don't ever want mine to leave home but I know one day that will come.

My powers back on! We had a big storm and some water got in to the wiring, so everything was out since Monday night till just now, but in our landlord's cellar was a spare fridge freezer, so we saved all of our food and had a wonderful candlelit evening yesterday and what could have been a nightmare was a simple beautiful time! And we were not cold at all, even with no hot water or heating and a few sleet showers. It was almost like magic

I just had an amazing vacation and I'm now home with a cup of tea in hand and a warm purring kitty on my lap. Ahhhh! I feel soooooo much more relaxed than I did a while ago.

Do you celebrate when you see an Albino squirrel? Idunno.

Glad Squeakers is doing better!!!!! It's always troublesome when our voiceless children are sick.

Yippee, I had my first Italian lessons (4 per day!) in Milano! I was really scared (like a kid) and did not stop shaking all morning but my teacher and the other students are all really nice, and I am really pleased that all six students have a different first language.

Crepi!

for non Italian speakers, the good luck "In bocca al lupo" means "in the mouth of the wolf", to which the reply is "crepi" he dies!
