I just can't seem to Spark regularly when things are a little bit crazy at the house. My parents live w/hubby & I, so when dad was hospitalized again in June (complications w/congestive heart/kidney failure & diabetes) I just could not seem to 'find the time to Spark'. Then my brother (who's been in Iraq for a year) flew out to visit for a week. When my LA cousin heard his Tio was in the hospital, he came up and ended up staying for 2 weeks. Plus before dad went in the hospital, I had committed to pulling off a wonderful event in the native plant garden we were calling "Wine & Cheese w/the Bees", and was dealing w/alcohol permitting & insurance issues for the event, and the event itself of course.
On one hand, I know this is just what's going on in my life right now and I should be more mature and make better choices in support of my healthier lifestyle goals with SP. On the other hand, my immature spirit just says 'hey, this is all I can handle right now -we don't have time to Spark girlie!' sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
So feeling like a Sparkie-Wienie today, trying to get her spark back.
Thanks for all your support.

My Sunday morning volunteer work at the native plant garden gets canceled on rainy days, so am totally enjoying today home w/family and spending some of this morning touching base w/SP friends.
I see that so many of you are doing so well! You are so inspiring to me, keep up the great work!
I'm still struggling to keep things in better balance for a healthier me. I've been doing pretty well w/getting in at least 10-minutes exercise each day; but having difficulty getting back on the computer to log things.
With all the rain that we've been having, the patio cover caved in along a seam & sprung a leak so I've been trying to get Petkus Brothers to come out and do repair - but they just aren't responding to my phone calls, which is a bummer. Especially for my outside cats, because the patio is where they sleep and hang out to get out of the rain. (Poor kitties....)
My father's not been doing well again w/his heart & kidney deterioration, so have been trying to spend more time caring for him (massaging his feet & legs to improve circulation; also using essential oils, etc.). I had hoped things would improve these last 3 weeks, but they really have not so will be taking him back to hospital this week. Your prayers for him are much appreciated.
Well gotta go. Thanks again for all your support.

We all know 'that we could make time to exercise if we really wanted to'. I keep thinking that I really want to, but some how find myself putting off regular, consistent daily exercise so I can: ___ (fill in the blank, LOL!).
One of the common threads for not getting in regular daily exercise has been thinking I needed to have at least an hour or two to get the exercise in; and then deciding that I don't have an hour or two to squeeze into a day full of "To dos".
Soooooo, for the rest of this month, I've decided to make sure I do at least 10-minutes of exercise every day, no matter what and see where this gets me at the end of the month.
I'd also appreciate any suggestions and insights my Spark Peeps may have.
Ciao for now,

Spring time in Sacramento is AWESOME!!! but keeps me sooo busy.
Am sorry about being on "silent running" for a while, but have been totally involved with California Native Plant Society activities/events this Spring (see: www.sacvalleycnps.org/) and then getting ready for the Spring Holy Days (Leviticus 23:1-5 ie: Passover, Days of Unleavened Bread, etc.) Plus keeping up w/my Sunday gardening management at the native plant demo-garden in the historic city cemetery.
I've been getting in my exercise and eating pretty good; just not been able (or willing to sit down and log on to SP to track things (MY BAD!)
Hope everyone is having a beautiful spring! I know that I am :-)

I made it to Arden Faire Mall for walk last night, but no one else was able to make it (I waited to about 6:15pm). This was fine with me, since it was such short notice. I also got in some extra window shopping, and new tea tasting a TEAVANA (yummy) I love that place! :-)
This morning I was able to get walk done in the neighborhood. The nice weather really does inspire me to get out and walk!
Hope all are doing well.
