John and I got up early today to go to the Walk for Life. Walk for Life is a fundraiser for the Amarillo CareNet Pregnancy Center. I volunteered and worked for CareNet for several years and I enjoy going to the Walk each year…especially to show off John. Our friend Lisa “the enforcer” Donaldson joined us to celebrate life. Lisa and I bought a get card for Janet (Janet works at the Center) for everyone to sign. We got a bunch of signatures! Janet’s brother & sister took it to her right after the Walk.
Here’s a bit of good news! I had to buy some new pants since my old pants would not stay on! (BTW – that is a great problem to have - I lost 5.2 pounds last week!) I have gone down three sizes in 9 weeks! I am so excited and re-energized. I am also excited because some of my favorite friends are going to join WW with me!! It is so good to have a great support group!
My friend Janet is doing somewhat better. I have seen her several times this week and I will see her before the weekend is over. Thank you for your prayers!
And...my voice has been heard! (Stop it! I know you are saying imagine that!) The cover of Texas Monthly Magazine a couple of months ago was about the 50 best burgers in Texas. They failed...and I mean really failed to mention ANY from Amarillo! You know it....they got a letter from yours truly! They didn't publish the entire letter but they did mention the most important part - where to get a great burger in Amarillo! Check it out!http://www.texasmonthly.com/2009-10-01/roar.php
