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 38 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.

emoticon emoticon thanks for your bravery in sharing such a personal story. I have worked in and out of the mental health field for the past 5 years. I generally dislike the system here in NC but I loved the client's that I worked with. You are so right, many you would not even know had an illness and it is a small number that are aggressive. As someone, who has struggled off and on with depression, my hats off to you, because I worked in the field and encouraged others daily and not many people knew about my own battles. Thanks for being an inspiration.
