Way to Go, Beth! Taking charge of your life is probably the single 'bestest' thing one can try and do!
Good luck and a great new year!

Beth said...

Thanks, Jos! I appreciate your support.

Beth said...

mauniejames, you are too kind. You know, the bad times are also helpful, because it makes me reevaluate what I'm doing, and reflect on any changes that need to be made. And humor helps also :)
