back!!! So glad to see you around. This year has had its ups and downs for me. I am going to try to blog about it in the next few days. The situation with my parents came to a head of sorts. My father is now living in a home for Alzheimer's patients. He hates it, but it is really the only way. My mother had heart surgery in May. She is home alone now but seems loopy herself. I have been in and out of work several times. I had gained some weight back and managed to take it off but haven't really dropped below where I was before. I have tried extremely hard to give up sugar pretty much altogether. I have had a lot of success but still fall back sometimes.
I am really glad to see you back. This site is great, and you don't have to spend a ton of time here if you don't have it. Yes, we can do this!!! 1732 days ago
Hope all is well. Sorry I did not respond last time. My head is simply in a million different places. The weather has been weird here. Today was a nice day but windy; I think tomorrow will also be nice but without the wind. So it should be a better day.
My son is going to school in Florida now. We are planning to go down to see him for his birthday, which is 4 weeks from today. He will not be able to come home for Thanksgiving. Speaking of Thanksgiving, I hope yours was good.
I had a really good workout at the gym today; first really good one in months. Will try again tomorrow. I just had dinner with my parents; they are both in deteriorating health, especially mentally. It is sad...
It is great that you have come back to Spark. I definitely lost my way, though not completely. I think I am ready to jump in the water again and give it another whirl. I will try to do a better job of staying in touch 2176 days ago
I just saw your name pop up on my friend feed and thought of you. Thanks for stopping by earlier this summer and I am sorry I didn't get back to you. Unfortunately I have fallen off the wagon big time and gained back much of the weight I lost previously. I am hoping to get my act together soon. Unfortunately the summer was so hot here (hottest on record, I think), so it was hard to do a lot of things. I probably should not be making excuses, though.
Enjoy your retirement!!! I am still doing contract technical writing. I am now working for my fourth client in less than a year. Great job security, huh? But right now it is going pretty good.
Congrats on your daughter's wedding. I would love to see some pictures after the event. It really sounds like you are doing great and that you have turned things around. I am like two steps forward, one step back. I am making progress but wish I could stop backtracking. Oh well, I will get there.
It has been a very cool summer so far, but the last few days have been very pleasant.
