May we see sunshine tomorrow!

Saturday, February 05, 2011

There is nothing to get you down than a cloudy dreary rainy day! And boy do we have it all today. I have been struggling this week with a nasty cold. I hope it is about to go away. I'm tired of feeling like this especially since I have a big celebration tomorrow.

The family is getting together to celebrate my 50th birthday tomorrow. The birthday was on the 26th but being a January baby you know to expect the birthday celebrations to last for several months beyond the day because of the possibility of bad weather. I believe we have had both but luckily this week it's just been cold and dreary with the rain for the last two days.

I just hope tomorrow the weather guys get it straight with more sunshine in the forecast as well as warmer weather. Didn't that groundhog missed his we have warmer days too come. Right?

I hope all of you have a great weekend. Celebrate the occasion and the Super Bowl Game on Sunday. Make it one to remember!

Thankful for all the spark friends!

Thursday, January 27, 2011


I am so thankful for all the support and well wishes for my 50th birthday for all my sparkfriends. I can not believe I'm in the next decade. You have all made it a great day yesterday for sure. The great news is my celebrating will continue for a few more weeks. My family is hosting a party for me in a few weeks. So I'm going to live it up, dance a lot and definitely laugh at myself.

May the party continue for the entire year! WooHoo!!

Bootcamp Week 1

Saturday, January 08, 2011

Wow, I'm getting close of completing my first week in bootcamp. I did not know there were so many different movements and boy the burn. emoticon

I thought I had been moving and really working those muscles but each day I am finding out differently. I think this program is a great one for me since it's just those small 10 minute increments which I've been able to do with no problem. Of course, I learn after each one I'm not as strong as I thought.

I look forward to each week to hopefully I will be stronger by the end. WooHoo!! Thanks for a great program to get you back in the swing of things after the holidays for sure.

I know I can do this!! emoticon

    I've been surprised at how hard these few minutes are to finish. I thought I was in better shape, too. I think "how can these few minutes help?" But then I realize that I'm sweating so I must be doing something? I'm sure by Week 4 we'll be whizzing through them. We can do it! Here's to Week 2 emoticon

Vacation Coming to a End

Saturday, December 11, 2010

It's really hard to believe how fast this week has past. I actually had some great time to relax and do nothing. The beach was great even though it was so cold this week. It was wonderful to see the sunrise each day over the ocean. The view is absolutely breathtaking. It makes you realize the peacefulness of that moment.

I have one more day before back to the grinds of work. I do have a lot to celebrate this weekend though. My niece and husband are coming today with their two children. We will be celebrating her 40th birthday today. She does not know it but we're giving a surprise party at my brother's house tomorrow. That should be fun!

The other fantastic event is my husband starts his new job tomorrow morning. emoticon It will take some getting use too his new schedule of work but I am hoping it will all be a good thing. It has been a long time since he's had a "real" job! Almost five years to be exact. He has managed to do some "part-time" between two or three jobs. I really hope this one is a keeper.

Got to work on some decorations and make the house a little more festive this year. We do have a lot to be joyful and thankful for in our lives. What a way to end a most interesting year. emoticon

Relaxing at Myrtle Beach, SC

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

It has been an enjoyable time at the beach. It has been so much colder than usual on my annual visit here each year; but I've made the best of it. The mall and strip mall have given me alternatives for getting my walking in for a few days. The other days I've enjoyed doing my DVD cardio workout. Zumba is coming today so watch out "people" below because I'm going to be getting my groove on. emoticon

I use this time during this week to make my gifts of cookies I share with staff and friends. I have a perfect opportunity without interuptions. I get so much accomplished but who can resist the beautiful view of the ocean. I feel so motivated and I am able to get it all accomplished. WooHoo!!

I would have loved if my husband could have joined me this year but he had the opportunity to work. We need all the work we can get so he stayed home to take care of our animals and doggie, Chip. The best news is that Mike has finally landed a full-time job starting next week. It has been five years since he has had a full-time job. We have managed to survive that challenge but I also feel a little less stress with the latest news.


Just chillin' at the beach until next time!
