It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

2013 Challenges

It's that time of year again! I'm noticing new challenges popping up for 2013 and thought I'd better get prepared or I'd go overboard like 2012 (over 50? yikes!). I didn't plan on joining so many so I need to be very careful as we head into the end of the year. Dropping favorites will be difficult. Plus I really enjoyed taking time off and plan to do so again in 2013.

Wish me luck!

 ALL open Challenges for 2013
