Looking back on 2017 I realized that I had accomplished more goals than what i had set out to as part of my " New Year/ New You " . It has been one year since I had started a new fitness class through my church that has had a great impact on me. If it hadn't been for that, the past year might look a lot different. I am thankful for the fitness instructor or should I say, "Fitness Teacher, G... Thu, 18 Jan 2018 18:38:18 EST Reconciled! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6410268 It has been several years since i have thought about my disclosure of the sexual abuse/parent's divorce. But last winter the Lord my God felt it it was time to take one step closer in closure. I realize this is something i have been needing to face for sometime but it's never the right time. I have gone through years of counseling to help me get through this as you well know but time doesn't heal everything. Every so often there is something that trigger past memories that i have to overc... Mon, 11 Sep 2017 23:48:23 EST Accountability http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6377274 I have been a little slow on setting my goals this year. As usual i set new ones at the beginning of the new year but don't follow through with them. but recently I have started all over. I have recently got in touch with a couple of friends from high school years ago. One who moved back from Oklahoma a few years ago set a goal to walk all the way around a lake close by and invited me to join her. After my first attempt at that, i looked it up and that is a total of 7 miles all the way a... Mon, 19 Jun 2017 23:28:23 EST Relief! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6331566 When Dad called me yesterday I was filled with tears of joy to hear the good news- there was no cancer! The doctors ran the tests several times but the result came back the same each time. All I could say was " Praise The Lord!" when he gave me the whole story. I could hear his voice quiver as he was talking and there probably some tears also. This was one of the few times my dad didn't hold back his emotions. He has always said that he was ready if the Lord was ready for him but deep do... Sat, 11 Mar 2017 22:39:23 EST Good friends(Sauna time) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6330533 As long as i can remember,my mom has always said it is good to have close friends because you may never know when you might need them the most. Even though I had to remind her of that a few months ago following her knee surgery when I was battling the cold that no one ever wants. I may have stated that in an earlier post but it was hard for me to say no to her when she asked for my help one day. Now, on to what has happened this week since my dad gave me the bad news. A biopsy was done ... Thu, 9 Mar 2017 22:31:48 EST Praying! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6327860 This week has been nothing but a roller coaster for me starting of with my new evening cardio class that I love so much. It's called Revelation Wellness and is offered through mu church. I am enjoying it so much and was excited to hear they were offering another twelve week session after this one ends otherwise I would search for another location if necessary. I am having a hard time with the stress it puts on my ankles but it's worth it. My birthday Tuesday was rather uneventful but that... Sat, 4 Mar 2017 19:34:43 EST New Year, new you! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6296216 When I saw my dentist the other day, I wished him a happy new year even though it was past the first of the year. i explained to him that if it was the first time I see someone it is always a new year. When I went home after all my errands I sat down and thought about this phrase that I have either heard or read everywhere lately and my mom got me thinking about it also. I don't believe in new year resolutions because it seem like they never are accomplished by the end of the year. When I... Wed, 11 Jan 2017 19:57:15 EST Happy New year! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6292099 Happy new year every one! Ii am off to a slow star but it's better late than never. A lot has happened this past year that has slowed me down from accomplishing the goals I had set out but I haven't given up! When I went for a workout with my favorite group every one was happy to see me especially the instructor who has been really concerned about me. When I had explained what all has been on my plate lately-orchestra rehearsal two nights a week, three Christmas performances, my mom havi... Thu, 5 Jan 2017 19:06:19 EST Great day for a bike ride http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6234701 The bike I have had for 30 years was recently stolen. I have always enjoyed riding my bike especially before i started driving- that's how i got around, to and from high school and college and have been using it along my favorite trails. I relied on it so much when I was younger because I have epilepsy almost since birth so driving was out of the question when i came to the age for that right of passage that most teenagers look forward to. But in 2001 after going through several surgeries ... Mon, 12 Sep 2016 15:52:07 EST Summer time! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6189542 There are so many thing i like about summer. Listening to the Symphony in the Flint Hills is my favorite but there are a whole lot more like going to the lake, camping and eating fresh vegetables from my dad's garden. For as long as i can remember my dad has always had a love for gardening so all of us kids grew up on fresh vegetables. Some of my favorites are green beans,beets. corn, peas spinach to name a few. I didn't realize how many beets I had picked today until I got home. I had t...

My life has been a roller coaster both physically and emotionally ever since my Mom-o passed little over two years ago. She was more than my grandmother, she was my best friend. She was the one when I needed comfort when in pain, or loved when we wood do anything together. I was struggling so much that I had put back on all the weight that I had lost-I was 5 pounds from reaching my goal when I learned that her cancer had returned. My life was put ... Sat, 28 May 2016 15:57:21 EST Merry Christmas http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6041984 I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted anything on my blog page. I have been in my own little world the past two years when my family learned that my grandmother wouldn't be around much longer. She passed away on January 10, 2013 but had been in a nursing home and eventually a hospice the last two weeks of her life. It was hard for me to put up my tree that year let alone taking it town. Same with last year too. <BR> <BR> But this past year has been different. i noti...

I just got off the phone with my mom and we are going to the burial site for my grand mother's ashes and the urn my brother made for it.

Thu, 26 Jun 2014 23:21:08 EST New goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5667813 I haven't done this for a while so I thought I would update: <BR> <BR> 1. walk/ run a 5K in for epilepsy next year. ( I would participate in this years event except the month of June is already full for me this year! <BR> 2. Try at least one new salad a week. <em>20</em> <BR> 3. Plant some herbs in my back yard. <BR> <BR> <BR> Tue, 8 Apr 2014 23:59:45 EST Busy summer already! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5664650 I have been pet sitting for some friends of mine from church this past week and the dogs have been keeping me busy! After talking with my mom about our summer plans last night I realized that I am buy from the last week in May to the end of June. My friends will be on vacation once again for twelve days, and from then on there is something going on every weekend through the month of June! Our annual trip to the Symphony event in the Flint Hills and the orientation the weekend before, and t... Fri, 4 Apr 2014 22:51:50 EST one year anniversary! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5640930 I can't believe it has been one yeas since i started Spark People. So much has happened I hadn't realized the special occasion had passed. My SP anniversary falls right around my birthday so I kind of forgot about it. Besides there has been so much that has happened this past year- both good and bad that i have had a hard time accomplishing my goals but i haven't given up! One small goal I have accomplished is being able to work out at least 5 days a week even if it it is at least 10 minu... Thu, 6 Mar 2014 00:06:57 EST It fits! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5603921 i wish i was talking about clothes but that is the least of my worries right now. My mom and I worked on getting some business taken care of today and one of them was transferring my late grandmother's car to my possession. I knew beforehand that I would be receiving it but I hadn't expected it this soon! it just one more finality proving that Momo is no longer here. <em>46</em> One good thing is that we were glad to see that it does fit in my garage! <BR> Fri, 24 Jan 2014 00:06:14 EST Trying to get back to normal http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5587073 It was a week ago that my Mom-o was admitted into the hospice and she is pretty much sleeping 24/7 now. My family is surprised that she hasn't gone yet. she always has been a strong stubborn woman. I'm so glad hat the holidays are over and part of my life is getting back to normal somewhat. I am so happy to get back to the Aqua Zumba class and working out too. Tonight the church youth program resumes and I'm sort of looking forward to it. Part of me wants too be at the hospice and part ... Wed, 8 Jan 2014 15:42:19 EST Last minute plans http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5580006 Ever since my Mom-o was admitted t the hospice we have been making last minute plans for her memorial service. My mom wanted all three of her children involved in the services some way. My youngest brother is giving he message and the other is hand crafting a walnut box for her ashes. At first my mom didn't want to ask me to do anything until I had told her the one request Mom-o had made over fifteen years ago. She wanted her favorite song, " Amazing Grace" played at her service when she ... Thu, 2 Jan 2014 21:07:30 EST The time has come http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5575859 When my mom call last night, I knew it wasn't going to be good news. she had brought me up to par with my grandmother's status- her cancer had spread to her brain. I couldn't believe it. The last time I saw her was Christmas Day surrounded by all her family enjoying every minute of it and the next thing I knew is that she has been moved to a hospice. My mom and I went and cleaned out her room where she had been staying the past couple of months and then went to see her. it was painful lo... Mon, 30 Dec 2013 17:11:02 EST There's No Place Like Home http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5568890 I didn't realize how hard this would be for me when i was asked to do this three months ago but i learned real quickly. I was thinking about the money I could use to buy stuff I really need right now. I learned my lesson real quickly. I can get "home sick " easily without leaving town. i was less than two miles from where my apartment is but still... I 've already been asked to do another house sitting job in June but that's a little ways off. <em>29</em> Fri, 20 Dec 2013 19:30:46 EST A beautiful day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5565921 Today's weather was beautiful for the month of December. It was 62-high for this time <em>445</em> of year especially in Kansas. This month has been like the month of March-coming in like a like a lion and leaving like a lion as well. Either way I took great advantage of it. I put the dogs out side and ran away for a couple of hours. I really appreciate the earning the extra money house sitting for my friends but i am getting really home sick- only four more days left! Mon, 16 Dec 2013 18:42:02 EST HolidayTraditions http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5549943 I can't believe it's that time of year once again. It seems to get get busier every year and stressful too. I am a regular house sitter for two couples whom are neighbors and they often plan their trips together or back to back, which is the case for the holidays this year. When I looked at my calendar recently, I realized I'm going to be "gone" most of the month of December and won't be able to enjoy my decorations that i usually put up around Thanksgiving weekend. I have been toying wi... Mon, 25 Nov 2013 13:04:08 EST Tough Times Don't last http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5547327 This is a poem that was composed by a young teenage woman atny church several years ago. I keep it posted any where i see it. <BR> <BR> <BR> Tough Times Don't Last <BR> I said, "Sometimes I fail. <BR> He said" I'll see you through." <BR> I said, " But what if I fail?" <BR> He said," I will carry you." <BR> I said," My fears are great." <BR> He said' "Trust me alone." <BR> I said, "But I'm depressed." <BR> He said, "I'll cheer you on.' <BR> I said, "Life isn't easy." <BR> He said," Please l... Thu, 21 Nov 2013 23:56:38 EST Week two http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5545725 It was 9 days ago that I saw neurologist and it seems like eternity. He started me on a whole new cocktail of meds for my in hops of finding an answer. i wasn't all that thrilled to hear what he had in mind. There's one in particular that I have been on so many times for different ailments that I lost count. I celebrate every day that go with out a seizure even though my last one was over 7 years now. I learn to appreciate the pain more even when it is unbearable. I remind myself that... Wed, 20 Nov 2013 00:37:55 EST Long Week http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5543724 Even though this week has been a long one for me, I made myself get up and go to church this morning. This past year or so has been a real challenge for me and I do feel so much better when i force myself to do something that I am not up to. Sun, 17 Nov 2013 19:27:38 EST Memories http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5540657 Today I spent part of the day at my grandmother's house doing laundry. While i was there I looked through all the clutter that was in her basement and couldn't believe how quickly it brought back childhood memories. So many different items looked familiar I can't begin to list them. After tolerating all that I could i went upstairs for the last time with my laundry in hand closing the door behind me. I didn't want to think about how hard it will be when we have to start sorting through a... Thu, 14 Nov 2013 00:22:11 EST A mixed up kind of day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5538358 I went for my 6 month check up with my neurologist this morning with a list of questions but left the office with more! I have been his most challenging patients since I started seeing him 14 years ago but I am also his most successful one too! The main focus for the past several years is treating my chronic pain since my seizures are under control-it's been seven years since i last had one. the only problem is most of the medications that I'm on are used to treat both so if one is increas... Mon, 11 Nov 2013 14:45:47 EST It's finally here http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5530509 I wait for this moment every year-the day that daylight savings time ends! I don't know about anyone else, but the one hour difference messes with my mind-LITERALLY! That is two time of the year besides major holidays and full moons when I would have the most seizures <em>246</em> Sat, 2 Nov 2013 23:40:09 EST One step at a time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5528764 It's been almost ten month now since I started SP and I have made great progress- i have lost 20 lobs and would like to lose ten more. Right now though my life is like a yo-yo. My mind is on everyone else but me. My grandmother was transferred to another assisted living facility and I think she has come to realize that she most likely won't be moving home again any time soon if ever. <BR> <BR> I was surprised recently by my mom recently when she announced that she was trying to give up... Thu, 31 Oct 2013 23:07:39 EST A cool fall day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5520850 I saw that that the sun was out today even though there was a northern breeze but I went for a walk any way. I started walking into the wind which mad me walk faster than normal but once I came to my turning point it wasn't too bad. Especially when the sun was out. Besides the cool weather makes you walk faster! <em>422</em> Tue, 22 Oct 2013 23:47:49 EST Fall is here! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5517386 I have been hibernating most of this week thanks to the recent change in the weather. My chronic pain is really flaring up right now it has even effected my appetite some which i don't like. I've been really good about planning out my meals and sticking to them even though it's very hard at times. My dad constantly reminds me ho i need to be very careful about that as well as remembering my meds too. The last thing I want right now is a seizure! It's been almost seven years since my las... Fri, 18 Oct 2013 22:54:09 EST A roller coaster week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5505566 It has been a while sing my last post. I've been so busy lately with other things, i have forgotten to take care of myself. My mom reminded me about that the other day when she was talking about how she and her sister need to take a day off from everything and take care of herself. We all have been so busy taking care of my grand mother that we often forget about ourselves! Now that fall is officially here, my bike has been put away until next year and with the sudden change in the weath... Sat, 5 Oct 2013 22:39:54 EST One step forward.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5490666 grand mother was discharged from the hospital last Friday and transferred to a rehab center. She was restricted to a wheel chair because her cancer has progressed to her legs but not as severe as we thought. But once she was told she could use a walker she fell and broke her hip. So going home in a month is definitely out of the question. and she will require constant assistance too. Thu, 19 Sep 2013 22:48:22 EST Good news! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5484170 Over all Momo's doctor appointment went well. The cancer hasn't really progressed- there weren't any tumors found on her hip anyway but she will still have some radiation treatment for the pain. the doctor did say that my grandmother can no longer care for herself so some decisions will have to be mad soon pertaining to her living arrangements. <em>211</em> Fri, 13 Sep 2013 00:25:39 EST Is it Monday yet? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5480031 It' seems like I have been so busy this past month let alone this past week! I think i've been home long enough to do my laundry and sleep if even that. Besides hopefully my family will hear something about my grandmother's test tomorrow. We were rather disappointed not getting the result Friday but it was nearly 2 pm by the time we made back up to her room. I just love it when two doctors give you two different answers as to what's going on! But they decided they could no longer keep he... Sun, 8 Sep 2013 23:14:33 EST What next? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5477297 I'm so glad i went to the gym for a great water workout because i have a busy weekend ahead of me. First, Both Mom and Aunt Lana are busy tomorrow and someone needs to be with At all times especially when they take her for the PET scan. The pain medicine they have her on right now is effecting her memory more than ever. Second, i'm house/ pet sitting at two places again this weekend. It will be much easier this time. And to top it off it's the first orchestra rehearsal/services for the s... Thu, 5 Sep 2013 23:39:49 EST Time to celebrate http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5476312 Every one had a great time this past weekend at our family reunion in spite of the heat. Especially my grandmother who recently turned 90. We had a small celebration with the immediate family on her actual birthday but had a big family celebration at the reunion dinner this past Sunday. If you saw her you wouldn't believe she's that young! It's hard to believe with every thing she's faced through out her life, that she is doing so well but we have learned not to let or guard down. My mom... Thu, 5 Sep 2013 01:00:36 EST Time to relax http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5471340 It has been some what of a busy day for me. I have been getting ready for the family reunion- even though my family isn't camping this year due to the oppressive heat. my mom and I are still going. We'll be staying in town with some relatives instead. The main part of my day is getting some healthy foods to snack on so I won't eat too much junk. I made some healthy cookies that my mom actually likes even though they aren't chocolate! Sat, 31 Aug 2013 00:10:32 EST It's been a long time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5470247 I started two aqua exercises classes a month ago. It was then I realized how long it had been since I had bought a new bathing suit-at least ten years. And I was able to tell how lose the old one felt- it was literally hanging on me. So that has been my mission lately and I found one at the first store I went to today. The only problem is i have o wait until the next class in one week! <em>100</em> Thu, 29 Aug 2013 20:21:44 EST Disappointment http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5468140 It has been a gorgeous summer this year for the most part. I have been able to ride my bike along the trails more than usual. But the one event I look to the most is our Family reunion this coming weekend and of course that's when it decided to get hot. My immediate family enjoys tent camping unlike the rest who use cabins or campers. We enjoy facing the elements no matter what but there are limits this time. I do plan on going to the dinner on Sunday which is in A/C but I am a little dis... Tue, 27 Aug 2013 18:32:04 EST Ending on a great note http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5463527 I had a great work out today in my Aqua Zumba classes. The instructor makes it really fun and we have a great time too. I have lost more weight since i started this class over a month ago. i can't believe it has been that long. There won't be any class next week at the YMCA I usually work out because they are cleaning out the pool. I like the fact the class is in the evening at this location but there are two morning class at the other locations. hopefully I'll be able to make it to th... Thu, 22 Aug 2013 22:20:02 EST Where has time gone? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5461557 It seems like yesterday that we had the Cubbies "End of the year' carnival last April. But tomorrow night we start the orientation and next week is the open house. Ii am so glad to have my own car back. I hardly worked out last week until i borrowed my Dad's truck since I had two house sitting job which wore me out. On top of that my family went hunting for a decent camp site that we would all agree upon which was impossible. I was so glad for Monday to be here so i could get back on tr... Tue, 20 Aug 2013 23:48:10 EST Lost but found http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5459349 Because of my epilepsy, i have always worn a medic alert bracelet in case of an emergency. In the past two years I have lost three of these bracelets but one was found in my garage by my landlord and the second I lost at an out door concert event last June. That was m favorite one of all and I hardly wore it except for special occasions like this. The event was at Ft. Riley outside of Manhattan, KS and i just knew I would never see it again. Boy was i wrong. I heard from one of the volun... Sun, 18 Aug 2013 23:15:23 EST Only 3 more pounds! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5450275 Even though I started back in late January, it seems like yesterday. I finally bought my own digital scale and weighed in yesterday morning at 138 lbs. What a way to start off my day! It took me a little bit long than the goal i had set but I wasn't about to give up and i will continue onward! <em>279</em> Fri, 9 Aug 2013 20:35:15 EST This hasn't been my day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5449358 I woke up this morning thanks to the Kansas weather once again. it was much later than I had realized and barely made it to my hair appointment. Even though my pain worsened as the day progressed, I went to the gym for a good workout. I was well aware that I had one low tire that i was going to deal with tomorrow but my other back tire had blown out on my way home. But what made it worse was that i had left my cell phone at home and not all of the parts of my jack were there. on top of e...
