So I made the arrangements to use my daughters car to take him along with doing some needful errands before taking him home. Oh it must have been the hand of God. We live in the same city but we never have time together (alone). He has a wife and 2 children and my daughter and I live like bachelorettes...

It was my dream as a child to become a teacher and I do work in the school system right now as a paraprofessional. I figure if I just take it slow, one class at a time I should be ok.

I don't have a washer or a dryer and have been doing my clothes at the laundry mat. Well I just so happen to have ran into 4 full stamped cards that honor each a free wash of any choice of size of washer...let me tell you, I'm getting all my blankets, bedding and laundry done this week. :-) God is so good to me!

It is way too bitter. I have tried other brands and it was so much better. I guess I'll have to keep trying until I find the right one. Have a great week my Sparkfriends!!!

We haven't been doing a lot of moving around to save energy. We've had our air set to 75 in the day and it just keeps running. This weather makes it a little harder to get motivate to exercise. There is an area that is really close by and 140,000 people were out of electricity and just recently 50k have been restored.

This is my first step on getting back on course: Realizing what is derailing me and making changes. I recently donated blood and discovered that I am O+.
