Life Upside Down

It's TIME!!!!

Time for what??? Time for CHANGE! And is that a scary word!

Life has an uncanny way of not standing still! When we think it is.

Oh - I still have the same goals I had - I still want to adopt, for instance - but am having to think about when, where and how I can. Other goals have changed - and yet, even others are new.

But even some I've had for a while I think about in a different way from when I originally joined Spark ...
It's TIME!!!!

Time for what??? Time for CHANGE! And is that a scary word!

Life has an uncanny way of not standing still! When we think it is.

Oh - I still have the same goals I had - I still want to adopt, for instance - but am having to think about when, where and how I can. Other goals have changed - and yet, even others are new.

But even some I've had for a while I think about in a different way from when I originally joined Spark People - such as weight loss. I still want to lose weight - but now I'm more interested in inches and measurements and reducing my size overall so I can fit back into a size 14 - which I haven't done in more years than I really care to think about!

I'm also interested in toning up my body - and building muscle where mine have collapsed - and actually treating this body right for a change!

Hopefully I won't make negative statements about myself (negativity tends to breed negativity!), nor do I really want to promise to blog daily (I DO have another blog currently - which I use for my quilts, etc. - and which I will list as soon as I figure out how!) - but I DO want to blog here as well - and do so as my sometimes blog - sort of a personal journal as I meander/walk through/make a determined stride through weight change and body and mind toning.

Other Information:
I enjoy raising children and have been a foster mom and hope to be an adoptive mom to several. The kids who came and stayed awhile have had multiple challenges, including emotional challenges.

I've been sewing up a storm (quilts) and am learning to do the final quilting.

Books - I like to read - and read just about anything that has the printed word!

Music - I also am a lover of classical music, but thoroughly enjoy Jazz and non-western music - or music from other cultures.

Gardening - I LOVE to go through catalogs, choose seeds - don't love to pay for them - but DO love to choose them - and dream about how much produce, etc. I will reap. NOT crazy about the weeding - and REALLY don't like hot sweaty days - the ones when all the produce in the world decides to ripen at the same time! LOL
