Spark Break

Friday, May 23, 2014

I've decided that tomorrow is gonna b my last day on sparks for a while. I'm going to try to come on Spark every Saturday to update my exercise and maybe write a quick blog.

I'm just having a really hard time of things lately and just feel a disconnect form everybody and everything.

I appreciate each and everyone of you. I feel very Blessed with the ppl that I've had the pleasure to communicate with on here

What Have I Done

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

About 3 wks ago my daughter informed me that she is getting married on May 23rd. I know she was planning something for August. My 1st question was are you pregnant (her youngest will b 1 in June); she said no. They just decided to move it up to his birthday since they are just going to the Magistrate.

When will I learn to just keep my mouth shut. I am now throwing her a bbq reception that evening. I dont have any extra money so what was I thinking. Hubby did finally start working but first pay isnt until June 3rd.
To help with the food everyone I invited was asked to bring a dish.
But now hubby feels that we need more food and drinks. Personally I no longer drink as I converted to Mormonism; so I could care less about drinks.

I figured I go to the dollar store and pick up a few little things to throw some stuff together with stuff that I already have to do a little decorating

I will take pics of whatever I come up with.
I just pray hubby dont put us back in debt; we just fixed everything with the bank. But he says its probably the only child of ours that will ever get married and she is our baby girl and once school is over we are giving her custody of La La.

God Bless them; 3 girls and his son on occasional weekends. God forgive me but I truly hope they dont have kids anytime soon.

    Keep it simple, the important thing is the fellowship! Good luck! You can also ask guests to bring their own drinks.

    From my own experience, don't overspend. It won't be noticed or appreciated. Homemade BBQ beans and sloppy joes for a casual party go a long way. Sheet cakes at Costco are affordable. Not sure how many people you are inviting. And buy some mixed greens at Costco, too...some parm cheese and a caesar dressing. Dollar store for paper goods and condiments, etc. As for drinks, we bought some beer/pop and put it in a cooler and bought like 3 bottles of proseco, for our small wedding lunch. Guests shouldn't expect a full out drinking bash.

For you and I, I keep remembering what my Mom used to say about kids: "When they are little they break your back, when they grow up, they break your heart".

No matter how much we want to help/fix their issues...WE can't. We are only in control of ourselves. Thinking of you and hope it is a joyous event rather than stressful.

Apex Temple

Sunday, May 11, 2014


Yesterday I went to the Temple in Apex, NC. It was a long trip with my back hurting so bad. But I refused to miss the trip. I wasnt able to participate in the baptism or confirmation for the dead. But I was able to watch and feel the spirit. I am so looking forward to being able to do the work for my mother and my grandmothers.

April Wrap UP

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Over all for the month of April I actually did pretty good.
I even lost another 5 lbs.
I really think that this time I am really gonna keep it off. I am doing little changes instead of a bunch of big ones all at one time. I seen my PNP yesterday and am just waiting for Walmart to call that my meds are ready. So prayerfully that means sleep is on the horizon

- to just try to stay focused and on track.
emoticon

- start my plants (not quite ready to b transplanted ;but prayerfully this coming week)
emoticon

- work on a few projects around the house.
emoticon
- go to @ least 1 class a wk @ the gym
emoticon

- walk every evening (or morning)
emoticon

- track my food
