Jackson is getting me to go outside. That's a really good thing.

Our kitty cat

We lost our parakeet after 7 1/2 years so now we only have our Cockatiel, Cornell. He's doing well.

On September 1st, my sweetheart and I were flooded and lost our ceiling in a hurricane. We immediately moved inland to a furnished mobile home and are getting settled. We also had to put our beloved dog to "sleep". Needless to say, I've been away from SparkPeople for 2 months. I want to get back into it. I'm planning on adopting another dog and starting to walk. I'm also trying to avoid alcohol as much as possible and drink lots of water. I've got 25-30 pounds to lose. I'm grateful to be alive after losing our apartment, and I know I can lose weight and get healthier. Won't you join me in my journey ? Please add me as a friend and write to me. God Bless !

    Hi Valerie emoticon I've missed seeing you on my 'Friend Feed'! I'm glad you're ok after the hurricane and getting settled in a new home.
    My condolences on the loss of your dog. I had to let my Funky cat go last winter. It was hard but she was almost 14 and had pneumonia (at least). I could have given her daily shots for 2 weeks but the vet suspected that there was a lot more going on.
    Hope you have a great week!

    No one is perfect, nor should you expect them to be. Flaws can build character; acknowledge them and strive for growth over perfection. Adrienne Austermann
