Its been a while since I've updated my page. I am 51 and trying to fight menopausal weight gain as well as just keep as fit as I can. I am enjoying SP for the wonderful support of the community as well as the great ideas and advice that successful members share and knowing that I can be strong even at my age.

I was seriously injured. I was in shock, had 4 broken bones, burns, contusions, abrasions, internal injuries, etc. It happened in early March and I was on bed rest and couldn't even sit up until mid May. It took me years to completely recover. My family was more upset about my amnesia than I was actually. I was more concerned if I would be able to walk again. I was very lucky.

I was in a bad car wreck when I was 15 and had selective amnesia for years. I didn't remember anything about the wreck, for a period preceding it, and for 3 weeks after. I don't know if they told you what to expect but most of the memories came back to me over a period of months and years.

My husband snores like a train and I am trying to get him to see a doctor about it. He needs to lose weight but then so do I. LOL.

Have a great week!

I just saw your status and hope you are okay now!! I sent a prayer for you!!

I was looking on my computer cleaning it out and saw where I had not responded to one of your emails and that email is gone now. So here is is the answer anyway - the answer to the stuff about me blog.


I copied this from a sparkfriend's blog because it looked fun. I hope my friends will do the same so I can get to know you all better!


What is your hot-button....what instantly pisses you off?
People who are negative, always whiny, constantly finding fault, griping continuously. People who are prejudiced.

What do you want to do once you retire?
Enjoy Florida and all it has to offer.

Have you ever broken a bone?
Yes, my pelvis in 4 different places, plus toes, feet, fingers.

If your father had to describe you in a few words or less, what would he say?
Intelligent, funny, moral, eccentric. He says I am like his mother and told my brother that I could squeeze blood out of a turnip.

What is the worst decision you've made in the last 24 hours?
I didn't force my hubby to buy a dental guard. LOL.

What is one rule you had growing up, that you would never enforce with your own children?
I never forced my son to eat foods he hated.

What is your least favorite word?
Awesome or amazing. And the phrase "as well". They are complexly overused to the point that they are meaningless.

Before you sleep (actually sleep) next to should know I.....
I wake up every 2 hours and then get up and pee, the peeing is on purpose. LOL.

If you had unlimitless photoshop abilities, what would you photoshop on a picture of yourself?

What is something you've been thinking about a lot lately?
Simplifying, downsizing, and planning my garden and retirement.

What is the harshest criticism you've ever received?
I was told I was shallow because I refused to marry people I didn't love. I think the point was I was incapable of deep feelings.

Do you like tattoos and/or piercings?
One piercing on the ears is okay to me for men or women. Otherwise, not really. I like odd hair though like pink hair.

How old were you when you found out Santa wasn't real?
I never believed in Santa Claus. My son didn't either.

If you could have any job, and possess all the skills necessary to be successful, what would you choose?
I would study animals.

If there was a pill to stop ______, I would take it.

What sound do you hate?

What is the sickest you've ever been?
When I had food poisoning and blood was coming out of both ends.

Do you have trouble sleeping at night?

Do you wish you were famous?
No. Rich would be great though.

Does the phrase "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree" apply to you?
I have some good and bad traits of both of my parents but am my own person. I march to the tune of a different drummer.

Where is your dream vacation?
I love Florida and would love to have a motorhome and to see the entire state from one end to the other.

I feel old when I ______ ?
Am sick and look in the mirror. I look awful when I'm sick.

Who are you mean to?
People who are mean to me. If you want to pick on someone you had better choose someone else.

What was your nickname from your parents when you were younger?
Sefus or Butch. I have no idea why.

What is the most unusual food you have ever eaten?
Frog legs.

Do you remember your dreams in the morning?
