Welcome to my Spark home

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 ...

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 feel the same way. I tell myself I'm 63 so I can expect to have some problems but then in the next breath I'm telling myself I'm ONLY 63 and want these joints to carry me to the end of my days which I am planning to be around 110 or so. LOL.

His boss hasn't done well for the last 2 years and we all should have known he was on the way out and we did but he was like a sick animal and covered it well. He wasn't a whiner. He was supposed to come home less than a week before he died. Everyone is reeling. The plant manager (his son) and the other supervisor (his daughter) both like Benny, as does the third daughter. They have told him that their plan has been to provide Benny with a job until he retires so we hope that is true because at 59 looking for a new job won't be fun.

BCBS dropped the plan I was on because it was a good deal and they don't like to give those. LOL.

Thank you for the bloglove about me and my sister. I have decided to talk to her about this medicine - but gently.

Thank you for the comment on my blog. I am so with you. I hate to exercise but it is clearly important. I find that life problems really sap my ability to get off my butt. Happy thoughts and to successes

I forgot to add....................why don't we run away from home? Somewhere warm, sandy, sunny, with minimal crowds. We can take your hubby and Benny if they promise not to bum us out. Or not.
