It's been a very long time since I've posted anything in here. There really hasn't been anything new enough to blog about I guess. I've been maintaining my 50 pound weight loss now for over a month. That's great for me, but I'm still wanting to drop about 10 to 20 more pounds. This is a hard time of the year to do that, but I'm stepping up my activities at the gym another notch inorder to try to drop those elusive pounds. Bob & I have been jogging too, although he gets out there more than I do and goes farther. I still hate to jog, but I have to confess I love how I feel when I'm done. Bob has been gaining weight, but not like he did before. He's gaining it in muscle. It's awesome to see his stomach getting a visable "pack" and his arms and shoulders are looking pretty good too. He can't believe that he's been trying to "gain" weight after just spending all this time trying to loose weight, but he looks great. It's an ongoing thing, this weight control and I think we have it under control for the first time in our lives. Once I get my new digital Camera (one I hope Santa gets me early..hint, hint), I'll get some new photos posted.

Speaking of photos, I have to share this one of my oldest Granddaughter's new school picture. She's growing up so fast and looking more and more beautiful. Hmmm, guess that didn't scan the way I wanted it too. She's in the 3rd grade this year and loves wearing the school uniform. She looks so much like my Daughter that it's no wonder I call her , her Mother's name so often.

In other news, my Son is doing well over in Iraq. He sends me an email about once every week or so when he can. Sometimes it's just to say that he's doing well and sends his love. At other times he may go into a little more. He's an Army medic and he lets me know that he hasn't had to "do his job yet". That lets me know that nothing has happened in the area that he is in. He says that if anything were to happen, he would simply tell me that he had to "do his job today". He is not permitted to give out any details as far as his location or things going on. That makes sense to me so I don't ask him what is going on. Prior to this post, I posted a link for people to send the troops Christmas trees. A local radio station around here has been reporting on this website and a coworker of mine alerted me to it. I sent a tree to my Son since I knew his APO address. Their goal is to send 7,000 trees to the troups. I hope they reach that goal. Even if they don't, they'll send whatever amount they get donations for. I think it's a great pick-me-up for the troups that have to spend the holidays away from their loved ones.

I'll try to get my butt in gear and post more often. If for no other reason, it makes me feel better to do it. I guess blogging is good therapy in some fashion. So, until next time, I hope everyone that drops by here is doing well.
