I have an herb garden and several flower beds. I am a bird watcher. I keep feeders and water in the backyard for them. I love cats. I have two indoor only cats. I am a musician. I used to play the oboe. I am trading it in for a clarinet. I am sick of reed making, and I'm not going to spend my time on it anymore! I enjoy a variety of exercise, but swimming is my favorite.

I have an herb garden and several flower beds. I am a bird watcher. I keep feeders and water in the backyard for them. I love cats. I have two indoor only cats. I am a musician. I used to play the oboe. I am trading it in for a clarinet. I am sick of reed making, and I'm not going to spend my time on it anymore! I enjoy a variety of exercise, but swimming is my favorite.

I love everything about food. I love growing it, canning and freezing it, and eating it! I love to feel full, and I have quite an appetite. I am at a turning point in my Spark journey. I would like to lose about 20 more pounds, but I am ambivalent about making still more lifestyle changes that would take the weight off and keep it off. My doctors are thrilled with my weight as is. This weight is easy to maintain. What to do?

The problem is, this weight makes me feel mediocre. I look good, but not great. My fitness level is good, but not great. I want to be great, but I'm unwilling to make the long term changes that it will take to achieve that goal. The drama continues. What will I decide? At this point not even I know the answer to that question.

Thank you. I'll have to check out my blogs to see the name of the song. I don't remember it.

Thank you for the story about your brother-in-law. I really think the odds are stacked against us for communicating in a way we can understand one other. Goodwill might would get us through if only it existed on her side for us. Had a fight tonight that might be the final straw after all. I feel like a complete host mom failure.

Hi! Thanks for asking about my kitty Marley -- he's actually doing ok. In fact Sunday was both the cat's yearly check up, and other than gaining weight over the last year, they are both doing great. His diabetes seems to be staying stable, but he still requires the insulin shots. It's fairly routine at this point, and I've found a gal to take care of them both (and give shots) when I am out of town. It's good to hear from you -- I've been MIA for the last few months, but starting over and working hard to stay on track now. 9 days so far. I've gotta start somewhere. :-)
