By now I’m sure most have read there e-mail but just in case I’m posting it here (this is the kind of news we need to share).

“I am getting married. That’s right…..I know it’s probably a shock to most
but Karl and I will be getting married on January 1, 2003 at 3pm in my
living room. Uncle Eddie is agreed to come over and do the honors for us.
It will be me and my three kids, Mom and Dad, Karl and his three kids and his
parents and if anyone of you want to join us you are more than welcome to.
We will also have a reception sometime in February as soon as I have time to
book one. Hopefully at Club 86 with just hors’ derves (spelling) and cocktails.

And on the 1st it’s just the ceremony and maybe something afterwards. Not

So that is my exciting news. The kids and I and Karl are very happy. So if
you can join us we would love it and if you can’t I know you’lll be there in


Well another Tuesday weigh in- this time 2.6 for a total of 20.8 in 5 weeks, this I can live with.

Speaking of living or in this case dying- my neighbors found their daughter dead tonight. We don’t know why. We know she was on medication, we know she drank (she was an alcoholic) but we don’t know why. I didn’t know this lady well and my sorrow is more for the fact that one day you are here and the next gone. And when it is over- there is no time to make amends or make that call to say hi, or share good news or say “I love you”. In our busy worlds we let the important things go by…and that is sad. So wrapped up in our own worlds, with our issues, and our beliefs, we don’t take the few minutes necessary to do the right things, with or for the right people. We don’t forgive and heal we stay stuck and we view the world through lenses clouded with mistrust and anger and we lose sight that the world is beautiful. So tomorrow if you should die- what unfinished business do you have?


Well I did- I weighed in and lost .8 this week. This after eating only green things and exercising 45-60 minutes a day. What’s up with that? Then a read the following article- after I felt better and learned I could have ice cream one day per week!

To all of you who have children, I would really like it if you could get me a list of what they would like from Christmas.

I do not have a lot of time this year to do my shopping, therefore, the sooner I get the lists the better.

My e-mail address is and you can just forward the list on to me. I look forward to hearing from you.


It’s wonderful to see so many entires- like Christmas morning (almost).

Well once again today was weight watchers day- another 5.2 for a total of 17.4 pounds. My newest thing is exercise (which isn’t all that bad). I even found that I can jog a little. The biggest problem is the foot I broke- it swells but I’m doing 45 minutes a day of bike and walk/jogging (put on some funky music and move this white body). I’ve been thinking lately and wondering why I ever got out of shape- how dumb because now you have to work like hell to get it back. I’m sure once I do I’ll be excited but now I just have to get through the Holidays.

For anyone interested, there is a cool site to help calculate points: Dottie’s weight loss zone. Check it out!

Till next week…eat less…move more!


Hello to all! Sorry you haven’t heard from us in a long time but that is not to say that i don’t check the site.

He was so excited.He also has lost another tooth,bottom front.Football went great and he’s got anpther trophy.School is coming along for me and i will be anxious to get this semester over with.well gotta run.susie


Today…I wish you a day of ordinary miracles…
A fresh pot of coffee you didn’t make yourself.
An unexpected phone call from an old friend.
Green stoplights on your way to work or shop.

I wish you a day of little things to rejoice in…
The fastest line at the grocery store.
A good sing along song on the radio.
Your keys right where you look.

I wish you a day of happiness and perfection…
little bite size pieces of perfection that give you the funny
feeling that the Lord is smiling on you, holding you so gently because
you are someone special and rare.

I wish You a day of Peace, Happiness and Joy.

Ever had one of those days! It’s Monday and already feels like a full week. I taught this evening, have a PTA presentation tomorrow, and Wednesday & Thursday is parent teacher conferences so I work late.This is just the night schedule- days are full too. Thank goodness I have Friday off!

I guess here is my plug to say- I know everyone is busy but I hope we hear from people- keep us updated on what’s going on in your lives, comment on what we say here, send in a quote or picture- anything- this is a place to share and talk and laugh and we miss hearing from people.

I’m now off the soap box- have a great day!


Well I am running out of current photos of family so I guess I’ll just have to come home and take some more….I’m planning to come home Christmas day (around 4) and stay until Sunday (29). Linda and I will do Christmas on Christmas Eve (still send gifts to Kansas City- I’m traveling light) and we will spend New Year’s together (Linda works Christmas Day).

I also couldn’t wait 6 months to see Delaney (I got extra film!)
It will be short and sweet but the important thing is sweet!
