Happy New Year!

Happy 2019 Everybody!  I hope you were able to spend your New Year’s Eve with family and friends and friends who are like family.

My New Year’s Eve was busy.  I worked at the insurance office all day, then hurried to the Steakhouse to hostess for the evening.  We were crazy busy but the thing about my “work family” is that we still manage to have a little fun and laugh a lot while we’re working.  After closing, I hurried home and had some TV time with Hunter……and we rang in the New Year right here on our couch!  Pretty perfect if you ask me!

So does anyone really make New Year’s Resolutions anymore?  I kinda suck at it – so I haven’t really made any in a long time.  However, I do want to try to be “HEALTHIER” in the New Year…….i.e., making better food choices.  I admit 2017 was not a great year for my taste buds.  After the first round of chemo – my tastes really changed…..and it took much longer than I anticipated for my taste buds to get back to “normal”.  So……in 2018 when things started tasting good again…….I gave myself “permission” to enjoy whatever food I felt like eating.  Pizza……and more pizza……and lots of meat and potatoes.  I can honestly say that 2018 was “The Year of Great Food” for me!  I thoroughly enjoyed everything I ate.  And that may or may not have been a great choice – but that’s what I did, nonetheless.  That coupled with some medication that “helps” you gain weight, well……Maybe we can work on getting rid of these extra “chins” in 2019!

For those of you local folks, please mark your calendars for Thursday, January 10th.  The awesome folks at Cole’s Pharmacy in Roxboro have asked me to have a book signing there on January 10th from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm.  I’m so excited!  These folks are awfully special to me.  They have supported me immensely through the my breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.  And I get to see them often getting meds refilled – and they have the BEST orangeades in town……and hot dogs, and grilled cheeses, and daily specials!  So if you’ve been wondering where you could grab a copy of my book, plan to come to Cole’s Pharmacy next Thursday January 10th!

If you can’t make it to Cole’s Pharmacy, stop by Truth Bookstore in Roxboro.  They have some copies of the book as well!

For those of you NOT local to me, the book is available on Amazon.  The link is below!


One of my New Year’s “goals” is to blog a little more regularly than I did in 2018.  Once I started feeling “normal” again, I kinda got so busy “living” that I just didn’t take more make time for my blog.  I have definitely missed it – so I hope you will be hearing more from me in 2019.  I’ve thought a lot about what I’d blog about now that “the cancer” is gone.  I think I will just take it day by and day and see what direction the Lord leads me with the blog.  Suggestions?  We’ll see!

Well…..I’m still tired from a cram packed New Year’s Eve……so I’m taking it a little slow today and giving myself permission to “rest” and gear up for 2019.

I pray that 2019 is a wonderful, prosperous, happy and healthy year for you…..

In their hearts humans plan their course,
    but the Lord establishes their steps.
