January 16, 2012, is the day I re-acquainted myself with SP. I wrote this on my sparkpage but I thought today would be a good day to actually post it to the world and show a little accountability for myself.
I hope you all have a wonderful day - Jill

Wow, what a difference a year makes. I have been absent, majorly absent, but I am back.
Last April I went AWOL. I let a lot of people down here at SP and let myself down with a lot of other things, but many changes later, plus 15 extra pounds, has brought me back to SP.
I wasn't prepared in my life to accept the changes I needed to make last year, so it has been a time of examining personal goals and understanding myself a little better. I needed to take time off from so many stressors and just be...
That opened myself up to many wonderful things, including meeting Neil.
Another wonderful thing will be a move later this year from Ohio to California. Neil accepted a position in North County San Diego and we will be relocating in April/May this year. He is already there working and I will go a little later. It will also be great to be closer to my family who live there.
So now its time to refocus on some other personal issues, namely weight. Ballooning 15 pounds, although an understandable by-product of all this, has me grousing at myself every morning. I'm done with that!
2012 will be a truly wonderful year and I want to be ready in every way for what's in store. So get ready, here I come!!

It has been a rough weekend.
I traveled to Ft Wayne this weekend to help my daughter and her family pack and get ready to move to South Dakota. My son in law has an education opportunity there that is wonderful for him and them and will make for a great future. It is just bittersweet as they will be far away and not within a 3-hr drive as they have been. The grandbabies will be growing- growing and I will miss their special times. Fortunately there is Skype, but somehow it just doesn't feel the same.
Compounded with that is the ending of my relationship with Robert. It is interesting how these things come at the same time. I don't think it is random, but certainly it has me in a rather melancholy state.
I may be quiet for a while, but I am still here, just listening and being quiet.
Love to all,

My friends take such good care of me, always making sure I get my laugh for the day. Here is today's funny to share with you all...
WHY I AM NOW DIVORCED
"Last week was my birthday and I didn't feel
very well waking up on that morning.
I went downstairs for breakfast
hoping my husband would be pleasant and say,
and possibly have a small present for me.
As it turned out,
he barely said good morning,
let alone ' Happy Birthday.'
I thought.... Well, that's marriage for you,
but the kids.... they will remember.
My kids came bounding down stairs to breakfast
and didn't say a word..
So when I left for the office,
I felt pretty low and somewhat despondent.
As I walked into my office,
my handsome Boss Rick, said,
'Good Morning, lady,
and by the way
Happy Birthday! '
It felt a little better
that at least someone had remembered.
I worked until one o'clock ,
when Rick knocked on my door
and said, 'You know,
It's such a beautiful day outside,
and it is your Birthday,
what do you say we go out to lunch,
just you and me..'
I said, 'Thanks, Rick,
that's the greatest thing
I've heard all day. Let's go!'
We went to lunch.
But we didn't go where we normally would go.
He chose instead a quiet bistro
with a private table.
We had two martinis each
and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.
On the way back to the office,
Rick said, 'You know,
It's such a beautiful day...
We don't need to go straight back to the office,
I responded, 'I guess not.
What do you have in mind?'
He said, 'Let's drop by my place,
it's just around the corner.'
After arriving at his house,
Rick turned to me and said,
If you don't mind,
I'm going to step into the bedroom
for just a moment.
I'll be right back.'
'Ok.' I nervously replied.
He went into the bedroom and,
after a couple of minutes,
he came out
carrying a huge birthday cake ...
Followed by my husband
my kids, and dozens of my friends
and co-workers, all singing 'Happy Birthday'.
And I just sat there....
On the couch....

ANOTHER FUNNY - My friends must know the week I am having because I keep getting these great laughs in my email.
I hope you enjoy! Jill
"Subject: FW: Underwear Dust
BEWARE OF THAT UNDERWEAR DUST!
One evening a husband, thinking he was being funny, said to his wife, 'Perhaps we should start washing your clothes in 'Slim Fast'. Maybe it would take a few inches off of your butt!'
His wife was not amused, and decided that she simply couldn't let such a comment go unrewarded.
The next morning the husband took a pair of underwear out of his drawer. 'What the heck is this?' he said to himself as a little 'dust' cloud appeared when he shook them out.
'Cathy', he hollered into the bathroom, 'Why did you put talcum powder in my underwear?'
She replied with a snicker. 'It's not talcum powder; it's 'Miracle Grow'!
You guys just never learn, do not piss off the woman."

this was forwarded to me by a dear friend today. It was too funny not to share
"I don't usually buy into these kind of messages, and don't send them on. But I think this is actually a real threat. I wish I had received this sooner: maybe it's not too late for you.
You've no doubt heard about people who have been abducted and had their kidneys removed by black-market organ thieves.
My thighs were stolen from me during the night a few years ago. I went to sleep and woke up with someone else's thighs. It was just that quick. The replacements had the texture of cooked oatmeal. Whose thighs were these, and what happened to mine?
I spent an entire summer looking for my thighs.
Finally, hurt and angry, I resigned myself to living out my life in jeans.
And then the thieves struck again!
My butt was next. I knew it was the same gang, because they took pains to match my new rear-end to the thighs they had stuck me with earlier. But my new butt was attached at least three inches lower than my original! I realized I'd have to give up my jeans in favor of long skirts.
Somewhat over a year ago, my arms were switched. One morning I was fixing my hair and was horrified to see the flesh of my upper arm swinging to and fro with the motion of the hairbrush. This was really getting scary - my body was being replaced one section at a time. What could they do to me next?
When my poor neck suddenly disappeared and was replaced with a turkey neck, I knew I had to tell my story. Women of the world -wake up and smell the coffee! Those 'plastic' surgeons are using REAL replacement body parts - stolen from you and me!
The next time someone you know has something 'lifted', look closely- was it lifted from you?
THIS IS NOT A HOAX - This is happening to women everywhere every night.
WARN YOUR FRIENDS!
P.S. Last week I thought someone had stolen my boobs. I was lying in bed, and then suddenly they were gone!
But when I jumped out of bed, I was relieved to see that they had just been hiding in my armpits as I slept. Now, I keep them hidden in my waistband for safety.
I thought this was too 'important' not to pass on. Have a wonderful day - with a joy filled heart.
Always remember to Laugh!!
Helps the heart AND the wrinkles!!
P.P.S. Those same thieves just came into my closet and shrank my clothes !
How do they do that???? "
