happy New Year!

I hope you have all had a great holiday! The new year is just around the corner. However you spend it, be safe! I have no resolutions. I do need to find enjoyable work. This will take time...
Skylar started walking on Christmas. So special. I've enjoyed the holidays with the Observer. The year as a whole has been good. I'm not so obsessed with weight and not as chubby as last year. Sweets are not as triggering. My brother is better from his summer car accident. Thank goodness. His drinking seems under control too.
My biggest news is getting engaged. I still can't believe it. This coming year will be exciting. I'm off to watch New Years Eve with the Observer, John and Christina. There will be pizza and laughter. In true OCG style, I'm off to Starbucks!

Happy New Year!
