As soon as I saw my cousin Nancy I grabbed her arm and said, I need to ask you several questions. (1) How is your relationship with your sister. (2) How did everyone celebrate the holidays, since your mom died 2 years ago? <BR> <BR> My Aunt Mary dies 2 years ago, and at the funeral, Nancy's husband shocked us all by giving a speech on care givers. My cousin, Nancy's sister, Marybeth worked as a teacher, and she couldn't help out with her mothers care. After wa... Sat, 14 Jun 2014 18:42:38 EST HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5692221 To all the lovely ladies here at sparks, I am wishing you a special day tomorrow. Even if you are not mothers, you have shown someone love in your life which entitles you to this special day. <BR> <BR> I am hoping for good weather for everyone, and love from family and friends. <BR> <BR> Love Joyce Sat, 10 May 2014 21:39:01 EST Baby Sat Today! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5679657 My sister's youngest, age 40 1/2, had twin boys 10 1/2 weeks ago. I said I would watch them. <BR> <BR> These kids didn't sleep hardly at all today. <BR> <BR> I am so exhausted. <BR> <BR> Talk to you all tomorrow, after I get a good nights rest. Love Thu, 24 Apr 2014 17:20:58 EST Spring Weather! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5674869 I cannot believe the silly weather we have had this year. An extremely long and hard winter, and now it seems Spring is finally here. <BR> <BR> Yesterday I climber Mt. Everest, my sister's back yard, cleaned up twigs and branches. I thought I would have to spend the night up there. I was exhausted, plus I needed my Inhaler when I got down. <BR> <BR> I do not know what she will do next year without me. REMIND me of this, if I am not gone by next year.

Tue, 1 Apr 2014 07:10:06 EST 5K Walk! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5661100 Couldn't help myself. It was a lovely day, and I set out to get a 5K in. It was so nice out and I really didn't have any trouble. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is supposed to be 70 degrees, and I will get out early. Love this weather.

I am hoping to get out and walk tomorrow, I will be attending Mass. <BR> <BR> I help a friend of my sisters out. Her son bought his grandmothers house, and every once in a while with decent weather, we go over and work on different things. Now I am a smoker. Things got so bad, I started up again. Anyways, Jo Ann's friend gets very verbal with me about my smell. It got so bad one day after being gone for 7 hours that she calle...

They moved out of their apartment of 16 years, to take care of her parents. Ron promised to take care of both Bobbi and her mom. This gave her father peace. <BR> <BR> She sent me a letter today, and explained her problem, that since her computer was down, would I contact her friends. I contacted ALL of them. <BR> <BR> You know I only have all of you. I was honored to have been asked. <BR> <BR> Plea...

Of course if anyone wanted to get in touch with me, my phone isn't ringing in. <BR> <BR> Will have to have it checked. Of course I could call the phone company, and they could send me a free phone, but I can't afford a 35 dollar charge to get it on. Oh well. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone has a great day.

I can't get out to walk. Anyways, I am going to be 65 on March 27th. I had to make arrangements for my Medicare. <BR> <BR> I get SSI and SS. Welfare has given me my medical and medicinal coverage for 6 years. I was told, except for paying a small sum, as I have been that there would be no cost to me. Now I spoke to SS just 2 days ago, so I was inn shock when after telling me, because I am so low income that everything was taken care...
