Blessings in Fluff

never thought I would be a homemaker, but with various medical issues I am blessed with, it hasn't really been an optional thing. I do get out to volunteer several times a week at a school helping do data entry for their library and then the rest of my weekdays are taken by appointments.

I live in Washington State, USA with a significant other, my dog, and a large collection of stuffed animals.

My Program:
I'm slowly implementing the ideas that came to me as inspiration for my SuuuuperGoals blog post.

Area 1: Devotions
Area 2: Appearance
Area 3: Nutrition and Fitness
Area 4: Housekeeping
Area 5: Reading and Vocabulary building

They were in a different order in the post, but they've seemed to reprioritize themselves recently and I'm not complaining.

Personal Information:
I live in Auburn, WA. Feel free to friend, SparkMail, comment or send me notes! I turn 39 on April 22nd and I've been living with my man of choice for about 10 years this April/May!

I'm still trying to get him on SparkPeople, but he says it reminds him too much of facebook. Still I haven't given up hope.

~~Take the Power ~~

This life is yours.
Take the power to choose
what you want to do and do it well.
Take the power to love
what you want in life and
Love it honestly.
Take the power to walk in the forest
and be a part of nature.
Take the power to control your own life
No one else can do it for you
Take the power to make your life happy.
~~Susan Polis Schutz ~~

Take this Tuesday ...
Make it a great one, and make it your own!!

Hi Theresa,

For all Dad's ""Happy Father's Day""
I want to share with you a quote about Fathers'. I came across.
Fathers Quote ~ "Top Ten Favorite Sayings"

1. When I was your age..
2. A little bit of dirt never hurt anyone.
3. Go ask your Mother
4. Were you raised in a barn?
5. You don't know what hard work is.
6. It builds character.
7. Don't make me stop this car!!
8. You're grounded till you're thirty.
9. Money doesn't grow on trees.
10. Because I said so.

My Dad said ALL of these things many, many times, as I am sure your Dad did. (at least a few, anyway).
All these things bring up so, so many memories of my Dad. He passed away over 5 years ago, but there isn't a day that I do not think about him, and the special memories of him. This morning when I woke up, before I even got up, I looked up, and said "Happy Father's Day, Dad"
I hope you enjoyed this as much as I did!
