Today started out not too good for me. I woke up with problems over bad dreams. It took me awhile to get out of the slump. I did get my workouts in and that is the thing I will keep my eyes on. I had a disturbing night too it seems my system is reacting in ways I havae no control over and I do not like this ether. Not sure why it did it but again I will have to deal with it best I can. It is the endo of the month, Nove will be here soon. You all ready for Halloween tomorrow?
I decided to take this day to blog about how grateful I am to have found Sparkpeople. I do not think I would have held on this long and had accomplished all that I have if I have had not found this site. It was such a need for me when I started this, and I just did not know it. I have met so many people and have learned a lot about myself and others. Plus the tools provided to keep me informed and train me to be a healthy thinker. It gives you hope in the human race for sure. I just cannot praise this sire enough. I know I cannot give back as much as I have received. I am in such a financial situation and this site showed me I can get help and money does not have to be a factor here for me to get the help. I think this is a reason in its success. This is rare in our day and age for sure. To find a tool to be used and not ask for anything back in return,. People need to know more and be more like this in our world. This is a great example of how humanity can and should be to each other. What a success this site it, out of being a giver and helper to all who need it. I have no way of saying how much it means to me. I have voiced it to all I come in contact with, about how much it has helped me. I too have tried to pay it forward as they say and be here to help others and be a friend and buddy to any and all who need it, I hope this site stays up and running. See I have a fear I will lose it like all other things in my life I have had and lost. Keep up the good work Sparkpeople, and know I use you need you and praise you for all you do. Thank you.
Well the time will change this weekend, the sign of long winter nights, with short sunny days. We do get an extra hour of sleep on Saturday night. Did I ever tell anyone I was born on Dec. 21st it is the shortest day of the year. Now I learn about this movie coming out that says the world ends on this day. I think sure on my bday all bad things seem to happen. Just one of the things I really hate to celebrate in the winter. The holiday season is upon us with the Halloween Celebration coming first. Oh well once it starts it seems to go by very fast. It does not make it any easier when the stores now have all the Christmas stuff out on Halloween. Wish we were not so commercial. All these things going through my mind on this day. Am I a hoot or what. Happy Autumn. winter is coming very fast this year it seems.
While I am here for the winter with my son he has asked me to make a dinner once in a while for his poker night. Tuesdays is his poker night and he alwlays hosts and does the meal. I made the mistake last year making brownies for his friends. So now I am known for my good brownies by his friends, they just talk about them all the time. So anyway my son asked me to do the meal todasy. Yesterday I got the food and this am I did the sauce and brownies. I could not cook the meal without doing the brownies. So the sauce is cooking and I will do pasta later for the sauce. The guys come about 6 and are here till after midnight. There are at least 8 to 10 guys who come and play. So anyway I have a purpose for this day. It has put me in a great mood. I am going to do my DVD next it is pouring outside today in SC. I will do my 3 mile walk and then my weights. So it is a full day. Have a good day friends, here on Spark.
