    Hey, I was just looking at your page and thinking the same thing. I have not taken care of me very well lately. I probably h ave gained alot and I feel terrible. So, let's do this together. I would love to make my goal this year but I am not going to if I don't buckle down and get serious. I'm glad to hear you are back and ready to go again. We CAN do this!

it was a wonderful trip and one i want to do again. john is sweet and very attentive. he is a deisel mechanic and lives in anna ohio. he is hoping to move here in the summer, though i am trying to get him here for a visit soon. you can see his picture on my spark page. he loves to fish and camp out. so i think he would love it here in texas. and just think--no snow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. will keep everyone updated on how things. go. its hard to be so far away from him, and not be able to see him, but if its right, it will happen. so for now, i am just trying to enjoy nthe ride and love him silly!!!!!!!!!!!

    my husband and I met online. He was in Virginia and I was in Dallas at the time. That was three years ago. Within 9 months we were engaged and I moved to VA and we were married and have had a son and moved back to Texas this past fall. Congratulations and best wishes. Don't let people scare you away from him because of the distance, etc. Trust yourself because you know if it is right.

    Hey, I met my hubby online and we dated long-distance for 2 and a half years so I know how hard that can be. He was from Long Island, NY and I am from DFW are in TX. He moved here and we got married...and we live happily ever after. The distance and time only made us closer and more committed to each other. You go girl!

    Yes, yes, yes, savor this time. I think longing to be with him is so romantic. New love is soooooo exciting, nothin' like it. Now, I'm in year 20, and that has its own terrific advantages, but I'm just saying . . .

ok, where do i begin???
this was my first plane ride ever! i loved it. looking down on the clouds was incredible. i want to go again!!!!!!!!!
as we landed in ohio, the sun was going down so i got to see the sunset from above. after i got the luggage, i went outside to get the shuttle for the rental car and the wind took my breath away. it was about 15 degrees and windy. i got the car and drove up highway 75 to anna ohio. got to johns about 8 pm. my first ever look at a very special man. he was everything i had dreamed of. we talked and talked. he kissed me like i had never been kissed before. he had to get up early for work, so it was time for good night. the next morning i drove him to work and then got lost coming back to town. imagine a poor texas girl lost on the back roads of ohio at 6 am in the dark and snow flurries!!!!!!! but i found an open convenience store and found my way back. after a short nap and a shower, i called him and got directions and made it back to pick him up at noon. it was so cold, but the sun was out. we went back to his house for a while. it just kept getting colder and colder until it finally dropped to -3 degrees with a wind chill factor of -22 degrees. needless to say, we did not go out to dinner, we stayed there. on sunday morning i cooked for him for the first time. and then we just chilled at the house for a while. then we finally ventured out and i got to meet his best friend and we finally made it to dinner. he drove me around town and showed me some of the sights. next morning i made him breakfast again before he left for work. he mentioned very casually when he was leaving that he could not wait for this to be how every morning went after we got married. my heart stopped. i stuttered "what--what did you say?" and he looked at me and said"oh yes didn't you know i want to marry you?" then he kissed me and went out the door to work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

mom is doing ok. she is just weak and i dont like some of the meds her dr has her on. she is so weak and he has her on ambien to help her sleep. i had to go over there last night because she fell again on her way to bed. she was not hurt, but daddy could not get her up off the floor. now why a 73 y/o woman who is weak, needs a sleeping pill i dont know. i dont think she has trouble sleeping, she just thinks she does. and ambien is too strong for her. its also called the sleep-driving pill. some people do things after they take it--;ile get into the car and drive and dont even remember doing it. all they know is that the gas tank is mysteriously empty in the morningsd!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i need to talk with her dr again.
thanks everyone for asking about her and keeping her in your prayers

  I myself take Ambien and only take it after I have gone to the restroom and have shut the TV off. It is a hypnotic drug that tells the mind that it needs to res but it can have some bad side effects. I have nightmares when I take it and have to be very careful when I wake up in th middle of the night to go to the bathroom as I feel a little on the groggy side.

    Good advice LG. When my mom began exhibiting symptoms of Alzheimer's, *I* made the appointment and went with her and my father. *I* was the one who challenged the doctor when he said my mom "has always been a little ditzy". And when he refused to run any tests, I marched right back in, gave him a peice of my mind, and he ordered tests which ultimately determined her diagnoses. Do NOT be afraid to challenge these doctors. He may not have a clue what is going on outside his office. So GO with her, SPEAK up for her....she's the only mom you'll ever have, and you can be her advocatge....good luck!

    Don't be afraid to question her doctors. Seriously. If you have any doubts, questions, etc. about why the doctor is treating her with certain medications, ask. Ask until you hear an honest answer. You have to be you mom's best advocate right now because it doesn't sound like she is capable of doing that for herself right now.

Good luck and hugs. Heidi

not many changes for me lately, but its ok. just getting caught up with bills and housework and getting used to the new job. and waiting for some of the cool weather to hit texas. i hate this heat, though it is nice at night.
still trying to get my act together as far as losing weight and exercise. but thats ok too. at least i am still on sp and its helping me. so to all my friends who read this---send some positive thoughts this way so i can get this journey out of neutral and into drive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just get up and do something, and you are started! If you are not happy where you are, don't stop caring and do something about it. Small steps, try introducing more fruit and veg, add a little exercise, and before you know it, you will be started :-) Lou.

    ((((((Positive thoughts for you))))))) Sometimes the best way to start is to just dive right in! But, you have to do what is best accroding to your personality. For example, do you just dive right into the cold swimming pool? or do you gradually get in, an inch at a time? There is no one right way. Both ways get you into the pool, and once you are in, it feels so great!
