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!

Thanks Beth for your support and warm comments on my blog. Things are going amazingly well with my son and he got a job after only being here 10 days. Its just part time at a pizza place but its a good start and he's looking inot going to school to become a phlebotomist and his attitude at home has been great and he's been helping with projects around the house. I'm so grateful that its going okay so far and hope it continues. Thanks for thinking of us! I really appreciate you Beth!

Thanks BETH, I feel like a maid- an unpaid maid.
Pity party so DH and I are going leaf peeping and going to a fair. I will catch up. I have almost all the yard work done along with winterizing the pool on my own. DH helped where he could. I have a great DH-Pat in Maine. (((((HUGS))))) emoticon for checking, I feel loved.

Actually, it'll be a semi-retirement, because I'll still be doing the newspaper column (I think) and definitely freelancing for my old company, but picking and choosing what I work on. For three months, though, R&R!

Hi Beth, we're fine, just focused on getting ready for my retirement and then a three-month trip to Europe, Thailand, and Bali. I've had a lot of getting ready to do and am barely logging my food and exercise here!
