Welcome to my Spark home

Welcome to my Spark page. I am 64 years old and a retired speciaI education teacher (non categorical preschool).
My husband and I have a 4 year old rescue beagle named Buster. He is a bundle of energy and makes us laugh. He has eerily similar traits that we saw in our last 2 rescue beagles. He's very sweet and lots of fun for us.
Our daughter, husband and her 3 children (my adorable grandchildren) live about 25 minutes from us. They also have an old rescue beagle. I am so ...

Our son is married to a great woman. They have his rescue beagle (see a pattern in our family?) and her two cats. They live about 25 minutes from us also (in the opposite direction!)
I joined Spark in December 2009 and, like everyone, life has thrown me some curves as well as blessed me in many ways! Although I struggle with consistency, my main struggle seems to always be with exercise. It seems I do fine for awhile and then I get off track. I always go back to the basics but it does get discouraging.
I'm trying to focus on being a healthy me with the energy to have fun with my family!

Our weather is described as changeable so the weather forecasters here don't like to make any predictions. They tend to be vague until it's a sure thing so we get a lot of bad surprises. So frequently we wake up, look outside, and mutter, "WTH!"

Thanks for your comments on my blog about connections. Maybe the reason you feel less need for friends is because you have your "tribe" at hand, and a lovely thing that is.

Did you escape the "massive East Coast storm" they were predicting? We only got a couple inches, but something is blowing in tonight that feels like it's going to be interesting.

Benny is still dragging around though he is a little better.

We may get some snow Sunday. I'm sure I will stranded all weekend watching Benny snore. Ugh! I hate to stay home on Superbowl Sunday. It's the perfect day to shop!!

Thanks for the bloglove on my post All About Da Plan. Aren't we all works in progress? I am working on the attitude change as much as anything else.
I am definitely NOT going to play the guilt game. Ugh. bleh.

Lucky you, to have so little of the storm. It's tiresome to have to round up the energy to get the mess cleaned up but my wonderful neighbor is in charge. Bronchitis lingers! Thanks for well-wishes.
