Aerial & Mackie - 2002
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My name is Jeannie. The two loves of my life are my beautiful, talented daughter, Barbara, and my wonderful Aerial, my dog. We adopted Ari in 1990 and I'm blessed she is still with us. In 1987, I adopted a 6-month old Red Lord Amazon parrot, Mackie. What a talker - what a beautiful feathered friend! Sadly, Mack passed over in 2002 after a short illness. He will be forever a part of our family and I miss every day.
I work full-time as a Sr. Admin. Assistant. I've been here in VA for 11 years. I was born n raised in NY & Jersey. Sometimes, I miss a lot of things (namely food) I can't get in VA.
I'm a product of the 60's. The spirit still gets motivated and wants to rock n roll - but the body says, "Whoa! Let's take it a little slower." :)

My heart is heavy and aches today as my sweet, precious Aerial went to Rainbow Bridge. God smiled on both of us the day He put us together over 17 yrs ago. Now, my baby girl plays in His house and sits at His feet. My house is empty but I know she is near me.
Thank you, Aerial, for loving me with all your being, for saving me and giving my life joy. Our bond is never ending and shall never be broken or compromised. I shall love and miss you eternally.
Dreams are the winds that lift us.
So far today, I think I’m doing alright.
I have not gossiped or lost my temper.
I have not been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish or self-indulgent.
I have not whined, complained, cursed or eaten any chocolate or sweets.
I have not charged anything on my credit card.
But, Lord, I will be getting out of bed in a minute and I think that I will really need your help then.
Never Lose Your Sense Of Humor! It can get you through the hardest times.

Laughter makes the best confetti - sprinkle it generously.
My mom used to say, "Keep a song on your lips and a smile in your heart." Great Advice -- Thanks Mom!
Primarily, I want to feel healthy and have energy. I'm not that much overweight, but for my height and bone structure, I'm not comfortable with how I look. Also, I have some really nice work clothes that I want to get into again.
I'm concentrating on my nutritional intake and exercise. Love my cake and cookies, and with SP's monitoring system, I'm able to keep track of everything I eat. So far - so good - but I still have a way to go.
