Who IS This?

Yes, tis me

Popping in quickly to extend a warm thank you to all who are still following my very neglected blog... especially as there has been nothing to follow in the past 6 - 7 months! Thank you so much for hanging in there!

I'm happy to report that after a rather tumultuous year, things are going well.  I'm looking forward to the New Year, new opportunities, challenges and experiences.  
Nicole's health is still up and down, but the very positive thing is that there has been no recurrence of the cancer.  She celebrated one year cancer free on Dec. 16!  Big WHOOOOHOOO!!!

In April of this year, I started weaning myself off of Cymbalta (taken for depression), as it obviously was not helping.  I resisted going on the new Rx that the doc had given me for Prestiq.    I have been on one kind or another of serotonin type meds for over 10 years and made the decision to see how I felt without any of this type of drug.   It took several months to get the drug out of my system (these are not easy drugs to stop!), but I feel so much better now.  Much more energy, back to feeling positive about things and finally back to creating.

I have felt horrible about not blogging.  I've actually started several entries  (counted 11) that I put into draft to finish at another time.  Not a good idea - should have finished and posted immediately.  This one I am finishing NOW and posting NOW!

I'm looking forward in this New Year that is almost upon us to blogging regularly and also getting back to following everyone's entries.  

2012 is going to be my year for 'doing'
Before this becomes too long, a final thought -  if you are out celebrating and ringing in the New Year tonight, have a joyous time....and stay safe!
