    Not sure that this will be "big" -- but, who knows?
    I'm just happy to have found a way to (1) use my passion for a "real world immersion" approach to language education with my high schoolers [as I've done with adults for nearly a decade] and (2) not lose income on Monday holidays. It used to not matter if I took a holiday, but for the past year and a half, it's been kind of a big deal.

    Aww, thanks, Fanny. Hardest thing I have ever done and I am proud of myself, too.

    Thanks so much, Closet. I do feel much better and have much more stamina, but my knees are totally shot. I had hoped I would not need knee replacements if I lost a significant amount of weight, but I don't think I will be able to avoid it. I am meeting a new ortho guy today and so I will see what he says. I've been a shut-in for quite a number of years and it feels wonderful to finally be able to get out into the world and do things. Hubby and I want to travel more and losing weight was the first step towards reaching that goal, as well as the obvious health benefits, of course.

    History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. Martin Luther King, Jr.
