Happy Monday!!!

Monday, July 15, 2013

Good Monday Sparkfam! It has been a minute but I am always trying to make sure I hit you guys with a goody or comment on your page or blogs. I have been so busy with my little pooda scooda freshin fruita (grandbaby slang). lol He is such a joy and his little puppy brodder is such a big boy & tries to help whenever he can......I took a staycation to help my daughter & SIL with the babies while their daycare provider closed 2weeks. I just couldn't let little Camden stay with someone else who might let him cry too much. I mean a good 2-5 minutes isn't bad but anything beyond that is way too long. I shed a tear.....

Well a few months back I hinted that I would be starting a business with my hubster?? Well I am glad to say that Trinity 3 Trucking is up & almost about to be running. We bought a tractor but will run with JB Hunt with our own authority (means more money) and once we get our trailer we will get even more money. I am overjoyed but I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch. Starting a business can be extremely difficult and the time it takes from your life can be immense. I have prayed on this almost everyday but trying not to be selfish. I want to wise in decision making when it comes to our business & finance.

On another my youngest son is giving us the blues.... I have prayed on this & on him & ask for your prayers for us as well. As the devil is busy but I refuse to give on him but I can't lock him in the basement? Well I could but he is 16years old & I'm trying to help him think more for himself. This is some times difficult as we know kids know it all & the peer pressure. I mean, he is a well mannered kid but he is sneaking out of the house which as you know can very dangerous. I am NEVER giving up on my kids! I am thinking of sending him to a military school as per his request. He thinks he is in jail now he has no idea....I will keep you posted.

I went to my yearly pap exam and I lsot 10lbs. I was wondering if it was just water? I will take it nonetheless. lol Thank you for reading & take care.

God bless & keep you all!!!

Dee

  I am keeping good thoughts for your son. I used to be a juvenile hall public defender, and frustrated parents would talk to me. I told them -- and truly believe -- that the issues would pass. The kid would grow out of the problems. And, generally, I was right.

    I said a prayer for your son. I have had some problems with my 35 year old son that are far greater. He has been to jail for real. He wears an ankle monitor for using his ex fiance's password and posting derogatory stuff of her Facebook page. That is Felony 3 in the state of Texas. My advise is to take control now while your son is 16.
Congratulations and I hope you all do VERY well on your new business!!!! emoticon

    Hey my friend, it is FANTASTIC to hear about your new business! Especially because it won't be taking you away from Chicago--right? I can imagine there is lots of stuff to stay on top of. Best wishes with it all, & may you soon get the trailer, & may there be no nasty accidents! emoticon

So glad you got the extra time with your grandkids. They grow up so quickly! And woohoooo on losing 10 lbs, yay!

And you have all my sympathy as you struggle to help your son survive & thrive. I think age 16 is especially hard for boys. My son wasn't a bad kid either, but he was pretty unhappy at that age. May God protect your boy, especially as he is out & about--the Zimmerman verdict Saturday night was BAD, in my opinion, & I am praying extra-hard for our beautiful black boys. Big emoticon to all of you, & prayers alongside yours.

    Lol "pooda scooda freshin fruita" emoticon it!!!

Congratulations on your & your hubby's business!!! That's SO exciting. It definitely takes dedication, patience, and persistence to run your own business & I am praying for your success and that you will be guided to make the wisest decisions for you guys! YAY!!!

Teenagers are always a tough situation, lol. I have a little sister who is now 18 & is about as stubborn as I was as a teen (not a good thing, lol). Of course they know everything, they know better than you, and everything you do in an attempt to keep them out of trouble is really just an attempt to make them the most unhappy they could be just for your own entertainment. *le sigh* I don't know how your son is with communication, but my sis, anytime anyone would try to tell her something for her own good she would just shut down & not even listen or respond.
What I found worked best was to start a discussion, not giving advice, but talking out different scenarios, asking what she thought about them, what her reaction would be, what could go wrong, what were better/alternative courses of action would be, etc. It was better if she came to the conclusion to take an alternative course of action rather than be told that she had to. It's different with everyone though, but eventually they grow up and realize that their parents are smarter than they gave them credit for being and probably weren't just trying to make them suffer. I'll be praying for an amiable outcome for your family in that situation as well.

So Sad....

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Good Monday Sparkfam!! It was truly a gorgeous weekend I mean the weather was nice and the Spurs won & I was with my brand new grandson Camden Emmanuel.....I'm so in love with that little anxious angel....I mean he is always fidgeting....He is almost crawling....I'm serious I'm not just being one of "those PROUD grandparents!" lmbo

So let me show you why I am so sad....

Meet Coco Chanel she was born September 3, 2012 I had the pleasure of trying to find a good home for her. Coco is a havenese mini she is absolutely delightful. Why didn't I do a blog or try to post something on my Animal Lovers team about her? Instead, I asked a co-worker if she would like to have her since she found a small pup not to long ago but the owner came forward to claim him. She was "supposedly heartbroken" thinking the owner would not care for her. So of course, I showed her photos and she wanted to see him & keep blah blah blah...well this happened on Friday. I got the little rascal on Sunday morning, hence I missed church to connect Coco with her new proud home with a loving family. Pysch! I was absolutely blown away at her apprehensive way of approaching the dog & the "I don't know?" attitude towards her. She saw her & that was enough I told my girlfriend who her aunt actually gave her away, we might have a problem. I mean if it wasn't her kids didn't take to the dog, she didn't have papers to say what the dog lineage was, or the shots microchip & "what if" she gets sick in the future the heartbreak. Well, I felt so betrayed but then again, I knew she really didn't want the dog, she just wanted to see her. She saw her & that was enough. So I took him to my girlfriend's uncle thinking he was keeping her for himself but no he is gifting her to a woman at his church. In comes the heartache. I have Shadow who is 6years old & doesn't know how he would act with another dog. I would have to keep them separate cause he is jealous of my newest grandson. You don't know how it broke my heart to leave her. She was already within 2days shifted from one home to another home & now I can still hear her paws on the glass... I know the feeling of thinking of Shadow without me but now Coco Chanel is without me...Like I am the only avid dog lover?? So please pray that Dottie Coco's new owner loves her like I do....Oh I did offer to take her if the new owner doesn't want her. Dogs are a lot of work & Shadow is older but still I have to work with him.

I gained 15lbs since becoming a grandma or is it that I have gained weight and just didn't know it? Well today is a new day, I am recommitting to not putting ice cream cookies burgers fries & hot dogs on my daily meal plan....HELP!!! Deb & my other Sparkfam where you at??!! Front & center, I need you guys now!!

God bless & I need to STOP enjoying every day with food so much!!! LBVS

    Oh I know your heart is breaking. You never know what people will do. God cares for all creatures small and great. I'll send up some prayers. As for as the food girl we both need to lean on each other. Do what worked in the past. I am retooling myself.

  None can love them like you do however, we can only do what we can! Everything in moderation so you don't have to give it up, just don't eat them all at once, just kidding! We're in this together so we gain together and lose together! I decided to treat myself with a turkey burger yesterday and only ate half a bun! It satisfied the taste buds! You'll find your niche as we all will! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Your grandson is anxious huh? lol Just wait until he gets older. Is your older grandson like that? My son was a very alert newborn and an extremely hyper toddler! If I opened the door he ran out like a mouse when you turn the light on! emoticon Love those boys!

It's amazing that I actually went to my friend feed tonight and seen you had posted this blog and there was my name! I wrote my response in a goodie!

Love & Blessings!

    That is sad that she did that, it is not a toy that you can just look at and then decide that you don't want it. It is a living animal and needs love too.

    You are so kind to find homes for these fur babies, I'm sorry you are feeling so sad and I totally understand, I hope the new owner takes to Coco Chanel right away and gives this precious one a good home, here's hoping coco channel will love this new owner and the new owner will totally fall in love with Coco Channel. I am believing they will be a good match...I encourage you to get back with your program, I know you can do it, I cheer you on my friend, keep pushing and keep pressing ahead...

    Oh, such an adorable little Coco! I pray her new human loves her wholeheartedly & helps her feel at home very quickly!

As for the grandma pounds, we can't have that--let's get with the program, Dee! Your little Camden is SO blessed to have you as his grandma. (I love his name, by the way!) You've gotta do all in your power to make sure he has you for many, many years! Of course it's all up to God, but don't let it be because you weren't taking care of your beautiful self. Have fun exercising hard & eating lightly!

    I think it is wonderful you find homes for fur babies. I hope the owner adjust to Coco Chanel and Coco Chanel adjusts to the new owner. I am glad you are recommitting to healthy living. You won't be sorry as those pounds come off and the healthy eating makes you feel much better. God bless you!

The Spark Solution

Monday, May 20, 2013

Good Monday Sparkfam, I have been reading the Spark Solutions for the last week an there are a few things I would like to share with you all. I actually ordered the book because I wanted to reach out and try something new. What I was doing currently for myself wasn't working for me like it once was so I needed something new. I saw that just flipping through the pages that my desire to try to erase past bad habits and start anew surface. I have seen my waist coming back to me which I forgot where I placed it within the first few days without a 60mins workout overload. I like having a regime & felt comfortable with having a whole team that reads blogs & supported one another. I didn't really have a favorite meal but I feel if I have to choose it would be the Bacon-Swiss Scramble. Apparently, I love breakfast which is normally hot for me. The tip which I found most helpful the slow and steady because I hit the ground running at a 100 miles per hour. Then feel like I have burned out within a few weeks.

Next week I would like to be able to have a lose in my win column of at least 5lbs.

To get your own solutions join the many who have found Spark once again at this website: www.sparkpeople.com/sparksolution

I would like to hear if you any of you have bought the book and how you guys feel about it.....

God bless & enjoy everyday!

Dee

I will look into it again after reading your blog. Seems like it may have be tot review a few things in my lifestyle and solutions to getting to my desired goals. emoticon

Happy Friday!!!

Friday, May 17, 2013


This is my grand baby with his picture taken sideways.....lol Yes, I am having a blessed & happy Friday & pray you are too......He is actually 8days old today & he has 2 sets of grand parents and one is being a little bit overbearing... Any suggestions on that? Oh did I say that the overbearing grandparents are not us...lol

Today, I am doing my hard exam on watching every bite of food that enters my mouth. It is going pretty well as I have plump up a bit a long with my daughter. So we will both be hitting it in a few weeks once she gets her sea legs under her.

Shadow my 7year old boxer has an upper respiratory infection. So he has been kinda sick but I just didn't know it was that. So he went to the vet Monday after he had a reaction to I don't know what on Sunday. So I spent Mother's Day mothering a sick puppy. He is doing well he got a shot of antibiotics, then he has meds we have to give him daily. I think they are working as he has a runny nose (which I don't think I've ever seen a dog with one??) and he isn't coughing or hacking as much as he was on Sunday. I am burning my candle at every end trying to come up with a schedule to really rest up but a woman's work is NEVER done....ugh!!!


Today for my workout I will be doing walking, weights & maybe a little kickboxing? I guess it depends on how early I get home from my visit with my daughter & her family. I go bearing meals, massages & mental support if needed. I guess that is what we all need some times, someone to just take care of us....who are you going to take care of today?


My little rascals....

God bless & enjoy your day!

Dee

Happy Day Sparkfam!!

Thursday, April 11, 2013

I just want to say "thank you guys" for commenting on my birthday today! I am so psyched but that is how I am on everybody's birthday. Today is Thursday and I didn't start off with a workout cause everybody kept sending me texts and called me. I hate to sound like I didn't enjoy the attention because I truly did and still do. So thank you all so much!!! I am really so happy right now.

Today quite a few years ago a child was born and is now a grown lady. She has been fortunate enough to be blessed, healthy & prosperous. She hasn't had it all but she has lacked for nothing. No she isn't a millionaire but she is a thousandaire. Her family cherishes and adores her and gives all the love and support needed. She is grateful for all involved in her life.....smooches!

Waiting on my cupcake.....yum!
Today I got flowers, candy, clothes & juicy couture from hubs, my co-workers got me a card & some flowers & a juice box of wine which was really weird. That's just my take, the kids will take care of me on Saturday but called me & text me as well. I got so many gifts from my Sparkfam that I receive with lots of love!

God bless & luv you all!!

Dee
