It's a Brand New Year!

Well, lots of changes and new things in store for me this year. First, I cut 20 1/2" off my hair. It was time for a change. Hair that long gets to be really bothersome after a while. I couldn't sleep unless I braided it before bed or it would all be in my face. Actually, my hair was braided most of the time just to keep it out of my way.

After taking this picture, I've also decided that I at least need some foundation. Ugh! I called my friend, Terri (you know the one who built the carport herself?), who just happens to be a Mary Kay person and she's going to do a make-over on Sunday. All I really want is to hide the blotchy-ness. Can't do anything about the sagging, but I can at least improve my color.

Then this morning, I started the Welbutrin to help me quit smoking. I'm fairly healthy in that I eat well and walk/hike a lot (even in winter), and want to go the next step and get rid of the tar and nicotine (and whatever other chemicals are in them) that I know are holding me back in my efforts to live well. Now, that I no longer live with a smoker and most of my friends are non smokers, this should be MUCH easier than past attempts (I lost count of how many).

So, onward and upward, my friends! A toast (with orgainic milk) to good health, good times and good friends!
