I'm a nurse. I know better. How could you do this to yourself? I hear it all the time. It's all true. I was busy with family, and aging parents, and my patients at work. I forgot to take care of ME ! I wasn't paying attention to ME. My turn starts right now! In 17 months I will be 60 and I would like to weigh in at 160. 90 pounds in 17's doable!
August 2014: It was a doable goal, but I didn't do it! I've been saying forever I'm going to, but never get going. Something's got to!
March 24, 2016: I haven't really done anything but talk. All talk, no action = no results! Today I joined Spring 5% challenge. I am a Tiger Monarch. I will shortly be changing some of my Sparkpage to more accurately reflect where I am currently at and where I want to end up.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. Would love to have her sleep in her crate in our bedroom but Helga's crate is almost the size of a full-sized bed. It's gigantic (compared to my doxies) since she is a German shepherd. In her crate she can stand with room to spare and lying down she has extra room so she isn't cramped. Last night she did sleep on the floor next to my side of the bed and occasionally on the bed. Only problem is she woke me hourly. Wanted to make sure I was still there I guess. Going to give her a few weeks to see if she gets comfortable outside the crate with free roaming in the house. We put the little girls in her crate so there is no competition for the bed. They were very upset for about a half hour then went to sleep. It is only for a few weeks to let Helga adjust.

    Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog. Love visits from other Sparkers.
    I like this listed above as part of your program: No C-words: candy, cookies, cake. I've been saying this since November: No candy, chips, pop. Haven't always been successful over the holidays but back at it again.

    Brag away. You have sons to be proud of, no doubt in part because of what you taught them as kids and teens.

    Sometimes I think kids grow into decent adults in spite of parental goofs, but for sure when we model self-respect, we encourage, no, command their respect. And that translates to those who remind them of their mothers (and dads).

    Thank you for being one of those wonderful moms!

    Chicago getting our weather a day later? Sounds about right. I used to live in the Southern Tier of New York State and get the reports from family here in Nebraska... it would take two days from warming trends to get there! Storms sometimes came from a different direction, though.
