I am so very happy, I took my empty nest issue into my own hands and moved out on my kids -- to my very new cozy, tiny home.
I took my health into my own hands and was able to get off of all my puffers and steroids for my lungs,which saves me hundreds of dollars in prescriptions and now I can walk again without losing my breath.
Which was the key to me losing 20, and running again.
I met my reading and 90% of my stitching goals.
And I survived another year without choking my manager (who is a good friend) at my job and now have but 2 and 1/2 years left until retirement.
I started to read my favorite blogs again -- and even added a comment or two and started posting to my own blog.
SO THAT WAS A VERY SUCCESSFUL YEAR.
I can only hope for 2016 I overcome my challenges and can stay in the same amazing mental space I feel right now for the rest of the year.
I held my New Years Day Brunch which was so very fun. All the kids came with the grandkids - my two single daughters (who rent my old home) had an amazing New Years Eve, which limited their ability to do just about anything and texted me with their regrets.
just so happens I have leftovers.
I hate to cook, always have, not sure why - always seemed like way too much work for me - however, if I do it with a crock pot - don't mind one little bit. Everyone does the most amazing things with crockpots.
I used Fix It and Forget It One of my favorite Cook books. And prepared 5 different brand new wonderful dishes - my kids have never had before - on purpose - else they would eat the same stuff all the time. The best new recipe I tried was The ones that tried it liked it -- I did but it was very sweet.

Cheers to a wonderful new year - when you are able to have a happy and healthy life and we all find somehow to live together, celebrating our blessings and find a way to embrace our differences. Peace on Earth.
