Hello Spark Friends! I have missed you all so much! One of our computers had the wireless internet card go out and we really don't want to put any more money into the computer as it is so old. So we have 2 computers for 4 people to use... to say the least with DH looking for work and trying to set up some websites he can show employers examples of his work and my daughter's online college classes and regular classwork I have had to share my laptop and I just haven't had it to use, and if it was available I was so exhausted from the kids and helping my dad that I was just too tired and went to bed so I could keep up my sleep. This week my daughter is on spring break in Louisiana and my son is off for his spring break, so we will see how much I get to have access to it this week. But when my daughter gets back it will be a tug of war with my laptop again. So please be patient with me, we are looking for something used or hoping that my daughter will get enough "cash" gifts for her graduation that she can buy herself a computer.
Well to say the least my life has been changed by these two beautiful children that I am watching. It requires me to be more physically active and I have my own 25 pound weight (the 9 month old Jackson)... I have had all kinds of soreness in my legs, arms, back and shoulders from just taking care of Jackson and Cicely.
To top it off, last week my dad came down twice for a couple of days to help get my planting tables made up... so now I have 4 of them, 5 ft wide by 3 ft deep. The lettuce Cicely and I planted 2 weeks ago is looking good and I can't wait until we can plant it. My dad also helped take care of some other little projects around that house so that makes me very happy!
We have snow right now, it started yesterday and we got about 10 inches and a lot of sleet all night long. Hopefully that will be the last snow of the season and the weatherman says that we should see temps in the 50's & 60's this coming week... I hope so!
I went to the doctor for my physical and got my blood work results and they are all in the normal range except for the triglycerides so the doctor wants me to start taking 500 mg of Niacin a day to try to get it down. He was really happy with my weight loss and was very encouraging.
I hate to run but I've got lots to do to get caught up... love and hugs to all of you!
