Catching Up

So...I blew it. I blew NaBloPoMo. I can't believe I almost made it and then blew it! Ugh.
I was off on Thursday night, and was SO busy on Friday...that I didn't realize until very late last night that I hadn't even Fragged! A week without fragging is a week without getting my thoughts together. I guess I'll sort of mini-frag today.

~ * Yesterday was the two year "Surgiversary" of my gastric bypass surgery. I'll be doing a full post on that, but I just had to mention it and say, it's been a great 2 years. I feel like a new person. I've had zero problems, and am so glad I had the surgery! I've lost 120 lbs. total, to date, and I feel great!

~* My bloggy friend Nancy's baby, Kara Faith, passed away yesterday. Please keep the family in your prayers. You can read about her here, and I'm sure the family would appreciate your kind words of support.

~* One reason we were so busy yesterday, is that we were preparing for our new family member, whom we brought home this morning! Her name is Sofia, and we are in love. She is a five year old boxer mix and we adopted her from a rescue group. She sits, she shakes, and wags her whole back end when she's happy, boxer style. She is a very sweet girl who was very mistreated, and we're so happy to give her a good life. She's also quite photogenic!

~* OK, I'm off now to enjoy a very low-key relaxed weekend with John & our (pet) zoo.

Hope you all are having a great weekend!

well done on the weight loss - I have debated on the surgery - my best friend had it and lost a little and gained it back - several years later she is heavier than she was and that's a tough thing to see -thus why I have not done it yet. Look forward to reading about your journey.

Love to you

Sophia is a doll. The first dog hubs and I got together was a boxer... she was the best pet! Congrats on your new family addition.

Congratulations on the new member of your family. She is precious.
I look forward to reading your story on your surgery, I've often thought of doing that.
I was over at your friends site earlier today, was taken there from another blog. Do you by chance have her address so I can send her a handkerchief from my
"For Your Tears" blog.
It is so sad and I am praying for them.
