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!

Thank you so much for the hugs on my Missing Mama on Mother's Day post. Her memories are the brightest jewel in my heart.

Thanks for the bloglove on my She's Launched post. It really WAS a great way to spend the afternoon and I did it yesterday too - in the sun and the wind. It was harder the second day because my tender muscles were sore but I'll grow used to it. Best of all - this paddle doesn't cause blisters like the canoe one.
I sure do emoticon me some kayaking.

p.s. I'm finding the No Eating Except When Sitting Down rule from the Beck book is really helping me to snack less, more mindfully.

Beth, our son is doing temp work. He was on his road to being an architect but he had a friend who wanted to go to VEGAS.
DH and I said a semester off but he fell in love and never came back.
They were going to come back when her Dad had a major brain tumor.
They tried for another couple of years till he passed.
I like them here with us. It is just not big enough.
They have found good friends and our GD just loves DH.
I feel a bit claustrophobic because I do not go out except to walk. Now the senior college is closed till fall.
DH does not want to go places so I Spark for ever and Now I am in the yard. It is not a GARDEN it is just my flowers. I am too frugal to spend money on flowers. I just keep splitting the perennials and I am a pansy lover. They have to have SMILING FACES !
HUGS I would love to sit and chat for hours. You have been a very good friend, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Beth, I've missed you too. So good to come back and see some of my friends still here.
The house? Time, money and lack of desire. Hopefully that's changing, but what time I have lately seems to be going into kids, grandkids and doing the things that interest me.

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. emoticon
