Did you tell your kids' bus driver how much you appreciate them this morning? If not, maybe you could tell him/her this afternoon when he/she drops your little angels off safe and sound! I drive a bus, and most of the time it is a thankless job. But I was sooo humbled this morning when one of "my kids", one who never really even makes eye contact with me, reached up and hugged me and told me thank you for being the best bus driver in the world... Wed, 21 Oct 2009 12:35:58 EST Rainy days and Mondays... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2439152 Just like the old song says...rainy days and Mondays always get me down. I don't know what it is, when Monday rolls around, I just can't get up and go. When it is raining all I want to do is crawl back under the covers and do nothing. Thankfully today wasn't rainy or a Monday, it was a Tuesday...and I still had trouble getting up and going! I can visualize myself...thinner...healthier...sexier, but those days just creep in that make me want to just give up...even though I don't! I gotta ... Tue, 29 Sep 2009 17:59:52 EST ***Thankful for my family*** http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2419650 I haven't blogged for a long while. Haven't really felt like it, to be quite honest. My last blog was about mending fences with those you love. I had a fence that was mended with my sister-in-law. She passed away 2 months after I blogged that. She was only 33. It is hard to believe that she's been gone for almost 4 months. I am so thankful for the family I have. They can grate on my very last nerve, but push comes to shove and they are there. In it for the long haul; so to speak! It ... Tue, 22 Sep 2009 10:38:51 EST A time to be thankful, and mend those fences! :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1858808 Now is the time to be thankful. For everything, not just the big stuff, but all the little insignificant stuff in between the big and the little. My sister-in-law is sick. She has brain cancer, a glioblastoma multiforme, to be exact. She has had it for about a year and a half. When they found it they gave her a median of 2 years to live. Up until now, she has done beautifully with not only the treatment, but her attitude toward her illness and life. I am so thankful to have her in my l... Sat, 7 Mar 2009 17:59:53 EST Isn't it funny? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1837093 Isn't it funny how when the weekend comes, doesn't matter how good with my meals/excersize I have been during the week, I just fall right off the wagon when Friday night rolls around! I want to eat at every restaurant in town and just sit on my fanny on the couch watching TV for days. I am trying to change that. All I can do is take it one day at a time. If that doesn't work, then one hour at a time. And then even that can be broken down into minutes or seconds if needed. I need to get ... Sat, 28 Feb 2009 10:43:11 EST Finding a buddy, has really helped! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1829937 I am really excited to have found a buddy on SP. We seemed to have really connected and I was so pleased to see that she checked in today in my sparkmail. It made me not want to go and eat those Tostitos chips and queso dip when I came home after a long day today. Thank you. I hope that I can give her the same encouragement that she gave me today. She probably had no idea (as I didn't), that it would mean that much to see that she had contacted me today. It really means alot when someone ... Wed, 25 Feb 2009 18:18:54 EST I can't seem to get started! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1822175 I don't know what is the matter with me! I yearn to be not only thin but FIT and HEALTHY! I just can't seem to get any motivation. I just look at the foods I love to eat, and that got me into this boat to begin with, and realize that I have a love/hate relationship with them. I love them then hate myself when I eat them. I hate them for what they have done to my body. I know I need to move more, but I just can't seem to get the lead out so to speak. I am 5 feet tall and 165 lbs. Being... Mon, 23 Feb 2009 10:34:38 EST
