  1. You're off to a great start! Good luck and don't forget to post up your progress! :)

  2. Thanks Maria! So far I have already set up my recycling bins (and used them), paid of the small amount on my credit card and cleared up my remaining hospital bills (a rather long call to the insurance company), brushed AND flossed twice a day, started reorganizing the back room and donated all the old adult and baby clothing, started working sunscreen and moisturizing into my daily habit, drinking more water - it feels good to make some positive changes that I really think I can stick to.
