Sounds like a country song!

Has it really been that long?! It probably feels longer to you, but to me it seems like it was just a few months ago. You are doing great!

Congratulations to all of you who were able to kick the habit (it has been several years for James too).

This past year I saw my youngest graduate from college, I finally found a job in my new field and love it. No health problems outside of the ongoing knee aches. My oldest child has met a wonderful girl and is talking marriage (they have some financial hurdles to jump first). The bad news was that my mother-in-law continues her decline into dementia but she has wonderful caretakers in her husband and her son and his wife (DH's brother).

I hope that next year at this time, I'll have achieved the next level of certification and will be able to branch out into some community interpreting. I'd like to find a new church home where we can become a part of the body of Christ. It has been good to step away from the busyness of church but I miss the worship. I would like to see the wedding of my son (that may have to wait another year though) and I'd like to see my other son become settled in a career (he's still looking for a job).
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Whiskadoodle, I often feel that I work out more and eat less every year, but what happens? Where does it go? I gather you're a guy, but , and this is for all you gals, I was very, very pleased when I had my physical this year, and when the mam came up, the radiologist commented on my great pecs! So, even if it seems like you're not getting anywhere, maybe you're making your life better. Even just taking a walk or bicycle ride gets you outside, and that improves your attitude if nothing else.
