Welcome to my Spark home

Welcome to my Spark page. I am 63 years old and a retired speciaI education teacher (non categorical preschool).
My husband and I have a 3 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 10 minutes from us but are looking for a larger place! Hopefully, they won't move too far!
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!

So glad you had a great Pumpkin Patch day! No lines and good weather. Looks like from your status you picked the right day to go. Stay dry and warm.
I'm headed out for a walk this morning before it gets TOO HOT. YIKES! Temps are headed back up into the 90's again in our inland valleys. But our nights are cooler. We even have a blanket on the bed now. Woo Hoo.

Woo woo! Thanks for the blog love on my Saved the Plan blog. It's been crazy busy around here and I'm just now getting to the thank you stage. emoticon

Now girlfriend - even a stalled plan is better than a going in the wrong direction plan. So keep on keeping on.

Our baby died last night. He is no longer suffering. Benny held him while I took a bath and then Benny went to make a cup of tea and I was petting and holding Baxter when he died. Benny made him a casket today and we will bury him tomorrow. Talk to you later.
