My year has been interesting. My baby daughter (aged 24) got married, my MIL died on April 3 - but all in all life is very good.

All five of my kids are married and own their own homes. I could never have imagined their lives would be as successful. I got married at 17 and divorced at 23 with three kids - remarried and blended a family. All signs pointed to failure, but signs often point in the wrong direction.

I'm still about 40 pounds heavier than I want to be - but it just doesn't bother me as much as it once did. I'm healthy, never sick, my BP is fine. Worry and stress do a lot of harm to the body and I've learned to be very kicked-back and accepting of my life in general.

Going to Newport Beach California for vacation in July with the whole fam-damily. I took a vacation to SC in January.

I don't buy things. I'm a miser, and I've never really been too interested in style or fashion. My style is outdoors-crone. It fits me well.
