What a year

2005 will go down as "Howard's Year of Change". I made more changes this year than in any other time in my life.

  • Became a Christian
  • Lost 18 pounds of unwanted me
  • Bought my very own house
  • Painted my very own house
  • Lived on a real, live budget

They don't look like much, but for me, those are huge changes. I continue to change every day. It's amazing what you can accomplish when you step outside of your comfort zone. The best part, though, is finding the support system that allows you to do just that.

Thank you, Support System, for helping me, guiding me, and getting on my ass when I didn't do what I said I'd do. I could not have done this alone and will be forever grateful for your assistance. And you're right...I'm finally becoming a finisher. And it feels wonderful.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go eat a can of tuna. MMMMM!!!!


Boy, did I have some major changes too! I quit smoking, stopped living paycheck-to-paycheck, paid off my credit card debt. Plus some other stuff. ;)

That's awesome, Howard! I mean, the sum total of my list is like, got hitched, new job, yawn, right? Anyway, if you're going to be making a lot of canned tuna, I've got some recipes that might make it more bearable, or for whatever else your palate needs to keep from getting bored. Drop me a line.
