Hi Angela!

I remember how crazy busy you get at tax time. It must be even worse with all the new tax laws/breaks, etc!!

My granddaughter came 4 weeks early! She is perfect!!!!! Even tho she was a preemie, she was very alert and could hold her head up.

I just started taking care of her on Monday & Tuesday while her parents work. Her other grandmother takes care of her Thursday & Friday while my son has her on Wednesday which is his day off. She is the sweetest thing!!! 

So, my husband & I got COVID beginning of April. We joined a gym and went ONE time and caught it! GO FIGURE!!!! I only had a few minor symptoms, mainly felt like allergies (stuffy nose). My hubbs had a bad cough, fever for about a week, lost his appetite for about two weeks (lost 25lbs) and couldn’t sleep bcuz of his cough. We both are perfectly fine!

Congratulations on the new house!! I can’t wait to hear when you’re expecting!

Kids are heading here in a couple days so they can meet the new little one. When my daughter, hubby and youngest leave to go back to GA, they’re leaving my older two granddaughters with us for two weeks and then we’re driving them back and staying there for two weeks. CAN’T WAIT!!!!

Last but not least, my hubby is retiring sooner than planned so we are moving to GA in December!!! It’s bittersweet! I have been looking forward to this for YEARS as you know but I am leaving my two kids, their spouses and three grandkids behind. Now we will be traveling back and forth the opposite way, LOL!! 

Anyway, really glad to hear from you, looking forward to chatting again!

Hi Kim!!!

First off - Congrats on 6 years!!!!

I actually completely forgot until my friend sent me flowers (shes been doing it every year since I quit) and then it hit me! How funny that 6 years ago smoking was ALLLL that I thought of - and now I almost never do! 

Wow - moving to GA already! Thats so awesome - though I can imagine you will miss your kiddos up north.

My husband and I actually caught covid this past January as well and were fortunate to have very mild symptoms too. I was hoping things would be closer to normal by now - but it seems with Delta we are headed backwards. Hubby and I have a trip planned in November - really hope it still happens!! We havent travelled much in 2 years - itching to have one final trip before we start trying for babies! ;)

Talk to you soon!

Angela <3

Hi JoJo.

Well it's been a long time since we started this journey. I am still smoke free, like most of us the last few years have been quite trying but I did it.

Today I'm wallowing at home full of cold, feeling pretty chuffed that I wasn't missing the old pufferoos when I thought of all the guys here.

Popped in to see if any names I remember and woo hoo there are still familiar faces. 

So a big well done to all of us August champions. Onwards and upwards, we got this.
