Blessings in Fluff

never thought I would be a homemaker, but with various medical issues I am blessed with, it hasn't really been an optional thing. I do get out to volunteer several times a week at a school helping do data entry for their library and then the rest of my weekdays are taken by appointments.

I live in Washington State, USA with a significant other, my dog, and a large collection of stuffed animals.

My Program:
I'm slowly implementing the ideas that came to me as inspiration for my SuuuuperGoals blog post.

Area 1: Devotions
Area 2: Appearance
Area 3: Nutrition and Fitness
Area 4: Housekeeping
Area 5: Reading and Vocabulary building

They were in a different order in the post, but they've seemed to reprioritize themselves recently and I'm not complaining.

Personal Information:
I live in Auburn, WA. Feel free to friend, SparkMail, comment or send me notes! I turn 38 on April 22nd and I've been living with my man of choice for about 10 years this April/May!

I'm still trying to get him on SparkPeople, but he says it reminds him too much of facebook. Still I haven't given up hope.

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ WHAT I'VE LEARNED ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~

I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life goes on, and it will be better tomorrow. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that making a "living" is not the same as making a "life".
I've learned that life gives you a second chance. emoticon
I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands, you need to be able to throw something back. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. emoticon
I've learned that even if I have pains, I don't have to be one. emoticon emoticon emoticon
I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. emoticon emoticon
I've learned that I have a lot to learn. &gr;em&lr;149&gr;/em&lr; emoticon

I hope that all of us can learn, not only today, but each and everyday!!
~~ One thing I've learned is that in order to have a friend, you have to be one.~~

Wishing you a """Wonderful Weekend"""
Lots of ((((((((((HUGS)))))))))) & SMILES!!

Theresa,
I am not a "perfect person". emoticon
My hair "doesn't always" stay in place, emoticon
and I "spill" things a lot. emoticon emoticon
I am "pretty clumsy" emoticon
and sometimes I have a "broken heart", emoticon
"My friends" & I sometimes "fight", emoticon
and maybe some days "nothing" goes right. emoticon
But when I think "about it" and take a "step back", emoticon
I remember how "amazing life" truly is, emoticon emoticon
and that maybe, just maybe, I like being "unperfect". emoticon emoticon

Hope you have a sensational Saturday, and a super Sunday!!!
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Barb
