I am 49, a mother of 8 children ages 25 to 12. I like the outdoors. I eat a fairly healthy diet with the occasional indugence on my Friday night date with my hubby. I enjoy weight training (mostly with Firm tapes), outdoor cardio (walking, hiking, running) and indoor cardio (all dance exercises and Firm aerobic tapes). I would love to find fitness partners in the Redmond, Washington area: someone to account to or someone to exercise with. One of my children has Down Syndrome. Three of the four boys and one of the four girls have ADHD.

    Thanks for your very kind comments. Rainy Seattle, eh? We lived in Woodinville for 41 years before retiring to Arizona in 2008. Four of our five sons still live there abd we have one son here and he is a great help to us. The chemo has rendered me useless around the house.

    Thank you for your suggestions on my sparkpage. When my boys were younger and they used to try to get in bed with me I would make them a bed on the floor. Sure enough after a couple of weeks, they started staying in their own beds. However, this has not worked with my daughter. She has to be in my bed next to me to get her settled down. We are trying prayer in the middle of the night when she wakes up....we will see how that goes. As far as the TV situation....my husband can't fall asleep without it on. I let him have his way because he is the one that has to go to work and I at least can try to get a nap in later. (sigh)
    Thanks for your help though. I sure appreciate your comment and support! emoticon Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

    Hi! I just came across your blog in one of the huddles. Musing on goal setting caught my eye. I surfed your page and see that you are in Redmond. Me and two fellow Sparkers are walking in a 5K at Marymoor Park (bigbackyard5k.com) on May 22. We created a team called the Maple Valley Sparklers.

    Wow, that is so great!! I have a nephew serving a spanish speaking mission too. His area is North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming and part of Montana. Weird, huh? I'm sure you already know this but you are incredibly blessed to have your son on a mission. My son is 19 and he has decided not to go. Not only that but he is making choices that are NOT what I would want for him. It is breaking my heart! Everytime one of his friends leave to serve their missions, I cry. I'm so happy for them but at the same time I'm dying inside. Not sure I like this free agency thing!! Hahaha!
