I'm a 5'2" mother of three sons, grandmother of three girls and one boy, and married to the same man for 46 years. Family is very important to me--I try to help all my extended family feel like they belong. I worked as a medical transcriptionist for the last many years of my work-life, which probably contributes to my pre-diabetes. I love to read and learn more than I love to walk or dig, so that has to be balanced for better health. One son and two daughter-in-laws get the kids together ...

Family is very important to me--I try to help all my extended family feel like they belong. I worked as a medical transcriptionist for the last many years of my work-life, which probably contributes to my pre-diabetes. I love to read and learn more than I love to walk or dig, so that has to be balanced for better health. One son and two daughter-in-laws get the kids together for a ride on the Greenway from time to time, and I go with them. I enjoy the biking. I'm working on an extensive family tree, which has led to curiosity about Scottish and French-Canadian Cultures. I belong to a Bible study, and am dedicated to knowledge through science as well. I try to blend them without bending either enough to break them ;)

I had a few downs, mostly from negative comments from a significant other. I should have let it roll off, but it was said after several days of self-doubt. I was weak! Anyway, I didn't sing for Easter (I was crying too hard). I ordered a veggie pizza that, in my pre-Spark days was considered healthy), and my blood sugar went up. It was the post dinner sugar that was worst. So I went for a double tour of my neighborhood and did 5,800 steps on the Fitbit. That brought the sugar down, but not as much as I would have liked. However, I think that showed me what white bread can do. I forgot to ask if they have whole-wheat pizza dough. I'll be more careful. I think I was just vulnerable. It was a lovely day to walk in the neighborhood. Dogwood petals have fallen, but azaleas and rhododendrons are still blooming. I think my hosta is coming back, too! I'm working to untie my well-being from my family and give it back to myself.

We're planning to leave on Thursday for Great Wolf Lodge and Williamsburg, Virginia. Super!
