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.

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 fortunate to see them a lot. They are my sunshine!! 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!

I've been married to my wonderful husband for 42 years. We have 2 grown children. Our daughter is married with 3 children. I feel so blessed to have them close and spend lots of time with them. Our son and his wife are recently married and right now live about 10 minutes from us.I taught preschool special education for 23 years and retired about 5 years ago. Loving retirement and am always busy!
I love to read!!! I belong to PaperbackSwap and love having access to so many books. We are moving our pontoon to Smith Mountain Lake and hope to spend some weekends and at least one week each summer down there. We are able to spend lots of time with our kids and grandkids. I love spending time with my family!
As my mother used to say "It's just a BOOK. I can write a BOOK" Thanks for the bloglove on my Beck Diet Solution post. the truth is - I am/was already doing much of what she suggests and at this point I haven't yet discovered anything I hadn't heard before. so MUCH of success in this weight and body effort comes when something inside you says "I'm ready". Well. I'm ready. But I'm ready to do the Bess Diet Solution.
& say Hi and Thanks for the bloglove on their post about the . Ain't it the truth that we love to blame our equipment when we ought to be looking at the operator. It's the same with our weight - A well stocked kitchen and a good gym are a great help but if we don't walk the walk - we're just going to sit the sit and get bigger and bigger. LOL. Thank goodness for our sparkfriends cheering us on.
Your day sounds perfect. I love to see fields of color in the spring. I love bulbs but they do not last long. I do like pansy's but they have to have "FACES" so I can smile at them. ((((HUGS ))) Pat in Maine. Thanks for you support. Enjoy the Spring it is always changing OXOXOXO
