I get so riled up (in a good way) when I read comments from my friends and other sparkers that seem to just "GET IT!" You, my old/new or new/old friend gets it and it just makes me wanna dance around my orange room with joy! Love ya toots, be well and happy….always. fredie 6 days ago
Hi Mary, before Spark People, I never power walked or hiked. I basically just worked, cleaned house and raised 4 kids and one grandchild. My life has always been busy and eventful. With my son Ryan being diabetic, he was often in hospital. He also played goalie on hockey teams while my youngest daughter was in dance and competitive dance. My younger son was into soccer and my oldest daughter was into piano and guitar so I had my days filled with going to games games, and activities that involved the children. I forgot to take care of me during those years but when I found Spark People, it all changed.....for the good.
My husband was a work a holic and did so much over time that it became his nick name "Mr. I'll be There" or "Mr. Overtime" I pretty well had little help with raising the kids because hubby was so busy. I dont begrudge this because when hubby was at home, he helped me all the time. He is a wonderful husband and father.
Spark People taught me how to make "me time" and time for fitness which I find to be relaxing and fun. THe faster the pace, the happier I am.
Hope this gives you a bit of and idea of just how beneficial Spark People has ben for me. Have a fantastic week
"I wonder what Lisa's perspective is of you" I wonder that too Mary. Though I do know she knows how much I love Lucy…I just don't want to step on any toes if you catch my drift so to speak. Yeah, maybe when I start with her home in September, just maybe it will be good timing. But truly, the situation that I have with her now is really wonderful. IN a way, I get my cake and I can eat it too! ;o) Everything okay over there?????xoxoxo fredie 7 days ago
We'll be taking our time on the road, so if we leave on Thursday, it will be 7-10 days after that that we arrive in CA. We have friends and family to visit along the way so we'll enjoy the trip too. 8 days ago
