Another year drawn to a close. My resolution to be healthy, happy, not smoke and to keep running was successful. I did not make my goal of 800 miles, but 681 is good and I feel ready for the Marathon in 3 weeks. I have been absent from blogging for awhile. Life has been extremely busy lately. First with the wedding, then Thanksgiving, then my BIL (a DPS officer) was hit by a semi while at the scene of a rollover on 11/29. He was taken out of Critical Care yesterday. MIL has been staying with us off and on to be here for him. He has begun to make good progess and his brain function seems good which was the biggest worry. There has been no sewing. I go crazy without a creative outlet so I have begun to crochet. I am self taught and not very good, but have made a few scarves and am now making washcloths. I love handmade washcloths. My children are all healthy and happy as are my DH and I. I have SO much to be thankful for. My resolution for next year.... Continue to run, and continue to sew. They lead to a healthy mind and healthy body. Love and enjoy my family. I wish anyone who happens to stop by a blessed and wonderful New Year.
