What to pair with oatmeal?

Friday, April 25, 2014      5 comments

I need advice, dear Spark Friends, I really like oatmeal, but I rarely eat it. But now, as part of "Amy is trying to reduce her cholesterol" I want to start eating it as part of my breakfast. I'm just having trouble coming up with a protein to... Read more

Catching up

Thursday, April 24, 2014      2 comments

Hi all, I've been meaning to write a catching up post for the last week and a half, and just haven't found the time. That's the story of my life right now - no time for anything! Okay, so update on me/my life: * Work has been busy, b... Read more

Coming back - a bit defeated

Monday, April 14, 2014      5 comments

*sigh* Of course, you know the story: Sparker does well for a while, then starts backsliding, and then quits for a while, and then backslides even more. Case in point: me BUT - it's time for me to come back and see old friends and ge... Read more

Taking a Break

Friday, August 16, 2013      13 comments

I'm still around - just not very vocal...

Wednesday, June 26, 2013      14 comments

I'm still here, though I haven't been doing well on my program the past couple of weeks - between Mark's depression (he's better for now) and his graduation, it has been hectic and draining. I was pretty emotional leading up the graduation... Read more

Asking for a favor....

Younger son, Mark, is going through a depression episode again (He's never really out to depression, but sometimes it gets worse). This time it's really scaring me - he says he's not suicidal, but he just feels like there's no point to life anym... Read more

This is what's making me laugh (at myself) today

Thursday, May 30, 2013      7 comments

I was taking my breaktime walk and caught sight of *something* in a small back yard. 1st thought: Is that a dead camel? 2nd thought: Maybe it's a huge stuffed animal. 1st realization: Oh! It's a line of large rocks. 2nd realization... Read more

Goals met for last week and set for this week

Monday, May 27, 2013      11 comments

Hmmmm... I'm afraid these lists are starting to get repetitious. Ignore them if you'd like - writing this down publicly just helps me stay motivated and on task. Last week: Track all food for at least four days Read more

Why selling on Ebay is like a treasure hunt for me

Wednesday, May 22, 2013      10 comments

I've been selling on Ebay for years. I tend to sell books and old paper goods. They are easy to photograph and easy to ship. Once in a while I'll pick up other pieces to sell - small collectible glass pieces, etc., but it's mainly books and pape... Read more

What is is with me and 170s?

Tuesday, May 07, 2013      10 comments

So this is what I've noticed (and this went on several years ago when I hovered in the 180s for quite some time before heading into the 200s) - I get into the low 180s - I can literally SMELL the 170s on the horizon (and even hit 179.2 last fall... Read more
