    HI Sandy!! SO GOOD to hear from you!! Its so strange to be able to discover who we are later on in life, but yet, it's also kinda neat. Are you in the same area? Not sure if you may of downsized? We know I did that 3 years ago, but even with being in a much smaller place I STILL HAVE TO MUCH STUFF!! This week (We now have 2 LTGL's on the 5%) so over the next 2 weeks one of them is DECLUTTTER!! WOOHOO!!! I need this, but I do it every 3 to 6 months any ways.

    Ahhh Sandy other than locally I think my wings are cut. I had been becoming a home body other than 1 vacation a year, and mostly within an hour of where I live. We have a cabin (4 of us who are friends) a wonderful cabin on the Ocean in June. I've been in heart failure since Feb this year. It's so strange to say that!! So STRANGE To know this!! But I am adjusting and thankfully meds certainly help.

    But I still love life, I still do what I can. I am not going to stop enjoying things, doing what I can, and now a days many with heart failure can life for many many years. It came on so fast as often the heart does, but I am doing this!! Cheri is with us on the Dawggie team, she had a heart attack 2 years ago. YO!! I don't know if Katie was a leader when you were on the team? She's been our ML for quite awhile. She is ALSO in heart failure, and an EL is being looked at for heart issues. OH MAN it's so STRANGE that Cheri, Katie and I were all in this boat all within 5 months of each other!! GOOD thing we had all lost a good amount of weight because we are all here!! WOOHOO!!!

    HI Sandy, Hon I am so sad to tell that MaryAnn(gi) passed away this summer. It was such a freak car accident. She wasn't in her car. She had gotten out according to a woman with her "to get something and the car rolled backwards onto her." That was on July 4th and on August 27th she passed away. Her son and I met where she was. Decided to honor her wishes, how could we not? She'd not recover. To say my heart still aches horribly is to say the very least. We had been so fortunate enough to have such a close friendship for 10 years. She and her H had come here several times and I met them in NH. We lived only 3 to 3 1/2 hours from each other. A great lady gone far to early.

    So cool my friend that you are setting in to being alone though it's not at all an easy thing to do. You are such a kind lady. Are you making quilts? Your skills are astounding!! WOW Sandy AMAZING WORK you do hon. Your giving spirit has always shined forth.

    I'm the CL for the Dawggies, I had changed to the Awesome A team. LOL MaryAnn and I were competing for several challenges back and forth it went!! I MISS joshing back and forth with her. After her accident I RAN back to the Dawgs who were just hurting so badly, many do still of course. But we are coming together as a team, so many newbies!!

    Life goes on. I still have Izzy kitty cat, she's so cute. My GD is all grown and has a 3 1/2 little guy. LOL DANG he's just WICKED TO CUTE!!! I love that kid maybe to much? ??? nah we can't love to much. Of course I also love my GD more.

    I have my house in fairly good order.....just need to organize the stuff on my desk.... I THINK there’s a desk under the papers......and have the quilt and sewing rooms to go. Got myself distracted with doing yard and garden work.
