OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

I have a time tracking my diet and my activities - but have learned that I do so much better when i take the time to. The two things i have the most struggle with are drinking enough water and getting to the club where i have a membership. And that i pay for each month!! I am continually resolving to do better and do for a while and then just get distracted by other things.

Not going to set any goals for the rest of this month - am just going to post what i do each day and see where i end up.

Hi Barb,

l'm glad you're well, l've not been on Spark so much either, my sister and her husband have been visiting so we've been out and about a bit, they like to walk too. lt's been so lovely to catch up face to face instead of on the 'phone or email, we've really enjoyed it.
They've gone back home today so l had a bit of washing and cleaning to get on with then l sat in the sunshine and read for a while.
l didn't even get my walk in today, very remiss of me!

Thanks for the goodie, the new camera is lovely, l shall enjoy using it.
Have a wonderful day with Steph emoticon

Good morning Barb, hope you're well and had a lovely Easter.
We did, the weather helped as it's been warm and sunny every day except Good Friday when it teemed down all day.
lt's so nice to get out into the garden at last though my knee is playing up...blooming arthritis...it always seems to flare up when you don't want it...lol...l've taken painkillers and am taking it easy just sitting in the sun instead of pottering about, might even get a bit more of Joseph's sampler done!

Have a wonderful day emoticon

Hi Barb,
We did have a good natter and a look around.

l seem to be living out of second hand shops these days, so far l've donated 25 bags of clothes to the Air Ambulance and keep buying stuff from their shop to wear until it no longer fits then l donate it back again.
l got a really nice jacket and two jumpers yesterday, still looking for a couple of pairs of trousers yet.

Martha-Ann.
