Speaking of loss, a very close friend of mine lost her mother unexpectedly the day after Christmas almost two years ago. A little over a month ago another friend expectantly lost her father. He was a great man and will be missed by all. I am just shocked and heartbroken for my friend and my friend's mother who is now a widow at the age of 70. Life is so so tough and unfair.
The Meindels are trudging along. Preschool is doing great! Carter really does not need speech anymore "although we will continue until he is 3" and he is ever so handsome!
Miss. Emmy has had her second hospital visit due to a fever (which turned out to be viral not kidney related thank heavens!)
We celebrated my grandparents 85 and 80 birthdays!
I am still focused on fitness as always and have lost over 33pounds! Currently in a size 4 or 26 for jeans! Feeling great!
