Victorian, built by my DH in 1980
This is our latest project. DH draws plans, builds it & we decorate & I electrify. Our hobby.
I am 65 years old and a breast cancer survivor, Had an illiostomy in 2007 when chemo shredded my colon. I was told it was not reversable but I recently found a surgeon who was able to fashion a small colon out of my small intestine. Its different but working good & I am very happy with the results. I have 3 children, 2 adults and 1 taken from us by a drunken driver when she was 18. My wonderful hubby and I have been married for 45 years. I am looking to improve my health and grow old gracefully.
I continue to meet small goals that I have set for myself with the help of Spark People. So far after8 months I am down 25 lbs. and have reached my goal.
Loose 25 lbs. Get rid of my spare tire. Fit into some nice looking clothes. Eat healthy, get fit and take better care of myself.
Walking 30-60 minutes a day. Twice a day weather permitting.
Weight training 30min 3 X week.
Stretching 20 minutes a day.
I go to CURVEs 3-4 times a week.
I was born in Dublin, Ireland. I have 5 sisters & 5 brothers. We are all very close. I lived & worked in NJ for many years. After the death of our daughter we retired to the Pocono Mountains, PA.
My hubby & I work with miniatures for a hobby. He builds dollhouses, little stores, shops and a General Store. I decorate with his help and I do the eletric.
I do volunteer work with the handicapped. I have 2 developmentally disabled adults that I work with. I take them to doctor appointments, have them to dinner & short vacations at my home.
I am a 2 year breast cancer survivor. Have had reconstructive surgery. Had a reversal of my iliostomy this past October. I colect Irish memoriabilia, odd or different rosary beads & dollhouse miniatures.

Don't let doubt stop you in your tracks. To keep doubts and doubters at bay, learn to celebrate the magnificent, shining part of you--even when life's storms momentarily eclipse its brilliance.

And finally, I want to acknowledge that making changes in your life is never an easy task. The key, however, is not to get caught up in the distance you have to go to get to where you want to be. Nor should you despair over the amount of control you have over your circumstances. Progress is made in the small, intentional steps, and chances are, you have more power than you think. By focusing on little steps you can take every day, the progress you make will motivate you to continue your journey, and eventually, you can go wherever you want to go. The important thing is simply to begin. ...Stephen Cherniske, M.S

“One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering.”
and one of my all-time favorites
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away"
