    Yay!!! Congratulations on getting to that magic number!! I was thinking about you with the all the fires in California . . . . Is everything okay where you are? I can't imagine how terrifying that would be!! We've had the most bizarre spring ---- 70's on Sunday, a horrible hail storm on Monday, and snow since Wednesday. I want sunshine!!! Do you do facebook at all? I find that i use this site less now but would love to stay in touch! Have a wonderful time with your son's party today!!!

    It sounds like you like in such an idealic place!! I live in Cedar Falls which is a smallish university town. We have a lovely downtown area which overlooks a river and has lots of bike trails. In the summer, I love my town but . . . . . the weather just isn't that great otherwise. The winters are LONG and there isn't much to do but stay inside. I struggle with SAD during the winter so we usually go to Florida a couple of times each winter to soak up some sun! I love the ocean and beach. I think I'm going to work for 5 more years and then we hope to travel more.

    This summer we're going to Germany and Denmark. Actually, my husband is going for work and I'm tagging along. He is using his miles so that I can come and I get to fly first class. Actually, it was cheaper by quite a bit for a 1st class ticket using miles. My sweet husband is sitting in coach! We've been married since right after high school and I feel so blessed that we made it. It wasn't easy because we were just too young. Take care - talk to you soon!!

    Hi Staci - I'm doing well but sooooooooo sick of rain and cold weather. It's supposed to snow here again on Friday!! It's been cold and rainy for over a week and now they are predicting more snow. I NEED sunshine and warm weather!! My weight is steadily coming off and today I fit in a size 14 pair of jeans. I was so excited - regular 14's!! I'm trying to weigh myself only 1 time per week so that I don't get discouraged. I bet you're losing inches! Take care and have a great rest of the week!! Send the sun to Iowa!

Hello folks
I'm not sure why but I didn't receive anyone's posts over the past months . All this time I've thought no one gave a crap about me for some reason. This morning I came on here to remove myself from the group when I see tons of posts from people!!!!! Posts all the way back in Feb that I NEVER SAW!!!!!! Although seeng them when I really needed someone to talk to would have been nice I appreciate them now. Thank you to all of you who DID give a crap!! Lol. This was the group
