Lap warmer

Sunday, January 26, 2014

I have what my eldest daughter refers to as a "cat growth" keeping my lap warm. Of course, while you have a cat growth, it is impossible to get up! ;D

  They make it hard to get up because I do not want to disturb them.

Can't remember how to change my profile picture

Wednesday, January 15, 2014

Tomorrow, January 16, will be my 6th Year anniversary on SparkPeople. I want to change my profile picture to reflect this milestone, but can't remember how to get that icon into my photos so I can make the switch. Comments/HELP?

I have proof that I started on January 16, 2008: it's one of my points earned things. But this is as high as the emblems go:

Memorial Service

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

A young friend and her 14 yr old son were murdered on December 5th by her abusive estranged husband, who also killed himself, leaving their three young children orphans. I attended the memorial service this afternoon. It was very well done, sensitive. Think I'll be going to bed early, though.

Our mental health "system," if one can call it that, is such a nationwide failure! He had been detained involuntarily last spring, but was released. He had been given back his guns on December 4th. So many unstable people out there!!! And what is being done to control them??? So many tragedies.

    I agree, so sad and could have been prevented. I will keep the three remaining children in my prayers. Their lives have been changed forever.

Importance of Sleep

Monday, December 16, 2013

I just wanted to share this link to an article from The National Institutes of Health about the frequent link between hypertension and sleep apnea.
If you're snoring or not breathing regularly when you sleep, it can cause high blood pressure.

Check it out:
