3rd year bandiversary........

Well, it's 3 years today since I got my band. I never thought 3 years ago that I would still be fighting with my weight. I am, however, very grateful to have lost the weight I have lost. And I know I couldn't have lost it without the help of the band. I have about 6 weeks left until I go for another upper GI. I am hoping (praying) that this time I will be healed and the doctor can give me a fill.

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. It's been sunny and showering all afternoon. I worked a little on Bob's quilt that I am making. I am making a pot of chili for dinner and we are watching "Uncle Buck" with John Candy. That movie is a classic and I just love it. I laugh at the same places every time I watch it. It's nice that it doesn't get dark early any more. My tulips that I planted last fall are growing and several have buds on them. I am so anxious to see the colors on them. When they bloom I will take some pictures and post them.....well, the chili timer is going off.........

Although your 3 years isn't what you expected, I think you've done really well. Your chili sounds good for a cold day which is what it is here. Our tulips are trying to come up but the ground keeps freezing so they haven't had much of a chance yet. Spring will get here to our part of the country eventually. I hope you take pictures of the quilt you are working on.

Kathy, you will have to post up some progress pic's of Bob's quilt - you've mentioned it a few times now and my curiosity is peaked he he :-)
I love tulips but I think it is too warm here for them.. plus the grim reaper lives in both my thumbs :-P
