I hope you all are well. <BR> <BR> For those who were asking yesterday, I go through phases of insomnia & have since I was a teen-ager. I suppose it's a hereditary thing. I get emails from my mom in the middle of the night sometimes. For years, I have had a before-bed ritual that works pretty well, but sometimes, even then, sleep is difficult. <BR> <BR> I read an article in a magazine the o... Wed, 25 Mar 2015 04:23:49 EST Mornings . . . <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I have not been getting enough sleep lately. Not sure what is going on . . . maybe just a phase. I am going to try & sleep a little longer in the morning for the rest of the week, so my blogs might be hit & miss depending on how much time I have between getting up & going to work. <BR> <BR> Keep smiling, SparkFriends!! <BR> <BR> Blessings to you!! <em>247</em> <em>390</em> Tue, 24 Mar 2015 04:17:25 EST I need coffee!! <img src=""> <BR> <BR> Happy Monday!!

That is a very rare occurrence. But, the courts where I live are not closed today, so I get to spend at least part of my wonderful day off reporting for jury duty. Can you tell how excited I am?

Thu, 5 Mar 2015 07:42:09 EST Urgent prayer request <img src=""> <BR> <BR> I was very sad to hear that the Pastor at my parent's church had a very serious heart attack yesterday. What an amazing person he is!! His first day on the job, he was at the hospital waiting when my parents showed up for my dad's open heart surgery. He didn't even know them, yet he was there waiting when we got there at 6:30 a.m. He & God put life back into that dying church. <BR> <BR> Thank you so much fo...

I went to the doctor yesterday & I have a sinus infection. If you've never had one, trust me, you don't want one. <BR> <BR> I didn't sleep that great last night, but I need to go back to work. I have antibiotics and while I'm feeling better, I was enjoying being home even though I was sick. Retirement looks better & better every day. <BR> <BR> Keep smiling!! ...

I'm going to see my mom-in-law early this afternoon & then I have a massage scheduled. If any of you have fibromyalgia, a massage really, really helps.

Too funny, but true!! <img src=""> <BR> <BR> We did our shoveling yesterday & got to meet the new neighbors. Great exercise. 30 minutes of snow shoveling burns 245 calories. Good way to get in some squats, too - when lifting, bend at the knees instead of the waist to save your back. <em>211</em> <BR> <BR> Hubby is off from work again today, but I'm going to give it a go, even though I have the option of taking leave.
