    Hello, DDA! I'm sorry that I never post anymore. I guess I don't have much going on. I do still read up and think about all of you often.

    I always seem a little depressed this time of year no matter what is happening. I think I might need more sunlight. It's time to make an effort to step out of the fog, though. One thing I'm going to try is to work on some little projects (whether I "feel" like it or not). I didn't get Christmas cards out, so I think I'm going to do Valentines. PM me your address if you want a little Valentine cheer. I still have an old DDA list, but I'm not sure how up-to-date that is. (And if you don't get a Valentine, it's not personal. It means no one did and I didn't hold myself to meeting my goal.)

    I'll try to post more often and make this my bit of :sunny:!

    Great news, Deb! I'm sure that must take a huge weight off your shoulders!

    Tammi, I enjoyed your brief trip report and photos!
    Elin, I'm glad you had such a relaxing beach vacation. I followed along on Facebook.
    Terry, I hope that you have an easier, more enjoyable year this year. May 2013 bring many joys to you (and all of the DDA)! I'm so happy that you are planning a Disney trip!
    Elin, :cheer2: for a planned Disney trip! Your journey over the last two years has really affected me. I hope that I can have your strength and grace when I need to.
    Glynis, I hope it has warmed up some for you! It's going to be a cold week here. I also don't do well with the cold.

    Thanks, Elin!

    It is so cold here. I've been mostly hiding under a comforter on the couch when I'm not at work or taking Miles somewhere. We're finally getting a little sun, but it's too cold to be out enjoying it.

    Matthew will graduate in May and hopefully have a job soon after. Is it horrible that I'm thinking about a family Disney trip for the end of summer when he most likely won't be able to go? It's weird to think about a family trip without him, and I don't want to hurt his feelings, but I think that is going to be the new normal. Is it too soon this summer?

    Hi, sorry to have been MIA myself, most of us have moved over to facebook but this will always be a special place for me.

    Most of you know we will be taking a quick trip on the 3rd of February to keep my grandchildren out of the hands of my daughter's MIL, I couldn't live with myself if I were to let that happen.

    My information is the same as the old list Beth, hopefully you'll pull yourself out of your funk soon, things have been really trying here lately and I'm afraid the scale shows it, especially with my mobility issues.

    I'm hoping that 2013 will be kind to all of us.

    Have a wonderful trip, Debbie. Those spur-of-the-moment ones sometimes are the best!

    Hi all,

    Hal's biopsy went okay. He said he would not wish this on anyone. We will not know the results until Friday, Feb 8. His appt is at 9:30 am. I have not mentioned this on facebook per their request, but right now I am pet sitting for two good friends. I will be there with Hal to hear the results.
    He is in a little pain and is taking it easy. These next few days are gonna go so slow!!

    All I can do is try to be happy about our trip in Dec. He is being such a pessimist right now and it is killing me. But he is at least up for doing all of the big thrill rides.

    I'm home again today. Not sure what virus I caught, maybe the noro virus? 2 days of vomiting, a bit of a cold, thought I was feeling better this morning only to have the worse case of the "runs" ever. Thank god I wasn't in the car or at work when that started. Colby is still home with a nasty cold. Nick is finally feeling better after 7 days. Hunter was only feeling yucky a couple of days. Chris still has a cold, but seems to be on the mend. I really hope that we all had different reactions to the same virus otherwise we're all screwed.

    I worked today, but 5:30 can't come soon enough. I guess that I'm only operating at about 60% at this point. TGIF

    Hi everyone! I've read back the few pages that I've missed, just to catch myself up.

    Elin - The first week of Nov sounds great! Congrats!

    Deb - I hope you all are feeling better.

    Terry - Another fun trip booked! Lots of prayers for Hal's biopsy.

    Debbie - have fun!

    Beth - I hope things are looking up for you.

    All is well here, nothing to complain about. Alyssa's schedule with dance gets busier every year. Now she is on the competition teams for tap and jazz. They competed at a huge event in DC last month, both teams winning 2nd for their division. The next competition is in April, but in the meantime she rehearses all weekend for the spring ballet. Hopefully she will be on pointe come summer, but we'll cross that bring if/when we get there. She's also competing in the PTO Reflections contest, in which she has won for the regional area in dance choreography. The theme is Magical Moment, and she choreographed and danced to Whitney Houston's One Moment in Time. Now she will move on to the state level. I'm very proud of her. Nick is still scouting and playing soccer. This spring he wants to go out for track in school. It's the first year he's eligible for school sports, so we'll see how that goes. And nothing new with me, other than the fact that I'm retiring on April 5. And will report right back to work the 8th. We have a program where you can retire, and then continue to work for another 3 years, essentially double dipping. I'm finally eligible, so I jumped on it!

    I think about you all often, and I hope all is well with you and your families.
