Of course, you know the story: Sparker does well for a while, then starts backsliding, and then quits for a while, and then backslides even more.
Case in point: me
BUT - it's time for me to come back and see old friends and get myself back on track.
Life has been SO busy, but I have to start taking more time for my own health. *nods*
I'm sending hugs to you all, and I'll try to catch up with everyone over the next few days. (((((hugs))))

When life just gets too darn busy, something has to give. I figured I'd use this week as a test to see if I could find the time to Spark and here it's Friday and this is the first chance I've had to get onto the site. Between work and family, it's hard to find even a few extra minutes in a day lately.
So I'm going to officially take a break from Spark People - I do plan on coming back, but it probably won't be until sometime this winter. (Although I can't foresee a huge slow down in any part of my life at this point).
I'll leave my page up, etc., so it'll be easier to transition back when the time comes. Some of you have my personal email address - feel free to use it anytime. Everyone else, just drop me a spark message and I'll try to respond.
*hugs* to all!

I'm still here, though I haven't been doing well on my program the past couple of weeks - between Mark's depression (he's better for now) and his graduation, it has been hectic and draining.
I was pretty emotional leading up the graduation. It breaks my heart that Mark missed out on his whole senior year and the graduation ceremony. But his mental health comes first.
Anyway, sorry for being so silent lately - when I'm feeling less brittle, I'll be more vocal, I promise.
A couple of pics from the grad party:
The two grads - Mark is sitting down, his cousin Brandon is standing:

Younger son, Mark, is going through a depression episode again (He's never really out to depression, but sometimes it gets worse). This time it's really scaring me - he says he's not suicidal, but he just feels like there's no point to life anymore.
He was supposed to go talk to the doc today, but doc got sick and rescheduled until Monday.
Anyway, on to my request: I believe in the power of positive thinking and the energy that comes from good wishes. So, if you would, please take about five and a half minutes - go listen to some of my talented boy's music, close your eyes, and just send him good wishes/love/prayers/energy. It might not be the 'cure', but it can't hurt, right??
Here's the link to his newest guitar mix - it's relaxing, not metal (this time)
Thanks so much. It's been a heck of a rough time...

Yep, I'm going to be one of those people who show off photos of their pet (and one of my sons... ) .
The first photo is a couple of days after we adopted her - she was eight weeks old. The second photo, she was about 12 weeks, and the third was the other day - just under seven months old. I get a laugh out of the ears and tail. The ears go from floppy, to semi floppy, to straight up. And the tail, well it goes from skinny to feather duster. LOL
(That's her boy, Mark, holding her in all the photos)
