I am back!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

I have put back on 10 pounds since I have been away from sparks. So much going on in my life. But I am not getting any younger so I have to start taking care of myself. I am watching my mother as she ages and see how she struggles. I don't want to have to struggle. I want to stay strong and be fit again. I have just lost my sister in law, she didn't pay attention to her health. I need to take a lesson from that and get back on track.

    emoticon Back You have come back with lots of time to make a healthy life style change that you can commit to for the rest of your life. Just remember to take small steps and tweaks in your nutrition and exercise programs and not try to do it all at once. Do you remember why you stopped sparking? If you can then you may be able to see or find out what caused the stopping and fix that first so you will be motivated to continue from now on! Your first excellent move was to comeback and start again emoticon emoticon

I promise I am still around I just have so much going on that it is difficult for me to get online. I will come back when things are less hectic. I miss seeing and chatting with my sparkfriends and I really need that to help me get back on the wagon so to speak. I will check back in later and fill you in. For now I am just MIA emoticon

My baby is in Iraq

Friday, November 11, 2011

Well my baby is in Iraq. She got there last night. She will be there for 6 months. She has two small children at home. This makes me very sad. If that wasn't enough her husband is being deployed to somewhere "that isn't as safe as where she is going" He will be deployed before she comes home.

People do not understand all of the sacrifices the military make for us. This is just another example of how much they give to their country. emoticon

    I'm so sorry to hear that your daughter will be in Iraq - I know I would be very concerned if it was my daughter too. We will keep you and your family in our prayers and please tell them that there are many of us that really do appreciate what they are doing for our country and all the sacrifices they are making. Hope that 6 months is very successful and she will be able to come home even sooner.
Take care.

    Where are the kids gonna go? It's crazy that at least one can't stay home, I know the life of a military wife, my hubs is retired Marine Corp. It is a great retirement and something they will be proud of the rest of their lives, but ohh sometimes the sacrifice is tough. One thing my hubs says "He believes it's harder on the ones left behind, because they are busy doing the mission" Let me tell you though the med bene's are great and the retirement won't make you rich, but won't make you poor in your later life either. Tell them Happy Veteran's day!

    I am sad for you as well. And I so appreciate the sacrifice and will pray they remain safe. My daughter was in the Navy right after the 9/11 attack and I was terrified that she would have to go overseas. She did not. They will be in my prayers.

So much for my cartoon I was going to post........LOL I guess I am just having one of THOSE days. LOL I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday. I love hump days. We are halfway through our week. And can you believe it is already November??

I am asking the kids everyday to tell me what they are grateful for. This morning they told me, hot chocolate, power (heat) and cars.... Yesterday it was school, the sun and God. They surprise me everyday with what they will say. emoticon emoticon

What are you thankful for today. I am thankful for all of my wonderful spark friends!!

    I am thankful for blue skies, sunshine, my water aerobics class, a great husband and all the ways in which our life is made immensely comfortable by electricity. We take it for granted, but we would hardly be able to take a step without it.
