The view from up here...
I was sitting here trying to think what to type. I was looking down at my lap, frowning in concentration. Looking at the gold threads in my shirt and the blond dog hair stuck to my pants...when I noticed something. I've noticed it before, but... Read more
There was this moment. Only a moment. A day in time. I weighed 139 pounds. It was a great day. A happy day. A fullfilling day. And it turns out....an elusive day. I'm trying real hard to get back down there. I'm not far away so I'm not ... Read more
I need help!
Okay, I don't do this often, but I need help with dinner tonight. We are going to eat at a local Mexican Restaurant. I love it! But I always gain weight after eating there. I need some stratagies to make it through this without gaining a bun... Read more
Where have I been???
Certainly not on Spark, not much anyway. I'm trying my very best, there just isn't much time. I've recently decided that in addition to my 2 jobs, taking care of and playing with my son, and exercising, that I really wanted to take better care... Read more
Don't think about what you can't do...
...just think about what you CAN do! I just heard this on tv. On one of my son's favorite cartoons. It's an excellent sentiment and it went right to my heart. It's how I want to live my life. There's so much we can't do, but there's even mo... Read more
The way things are...
Nothing much to say today. I've been lazy this week. I haven't been drinking the right amount of water, I haven't been exercising like I should, and I have the munchies. Last night I nearly had to restrain myself from going into town to by ch... Read more
Something unique about me...
I, along with my husband, am and independent contractor and we work from home every evening and weekend making flute pads. These are the pads that go on the bottom of flute keys. And I can say the alphabet faster backwards than I can forwards!... Read more
Turn the page...
Turn the page, one at a time. Day by day, week by week, year by year...we continue turning pages in our lives. Some days the pages contain motivation, happiness, sadness, or weakness. There are endless possibilities for what you might find on... Read more
Take a risk or play it safe?
Say you have a decision to make...
Take the right lane, it's safe...easy...familiar. There will be no surprises here. This is good AND bad. It's good because you already know where to place your feet, yo... Read more
Happy, healthy, and proud!
Blogging....something that used to come so easy. It's harder for me now. I love to write. I always have. I don't feel like I'm a particularly "good" writer, but it never mattered. Just me and pen and paper, computer now. I would just write... Read more

I don't want to admit this, but...
I may be struggling just a teeny tiny little bit. Seriously, just a little bit. I had the balance sort of figured out, then vacation happened. Lazy happened. Food happened. It did. I can't lie about it. I can, however, do something about ... Read more
Do I want this bad enough???
Sometimes I think it just isn't worth it. Some days it seems it would be so much easier to just give up...stay on the couch...eat a bag of chips...just be lazy. I'm good at lazy...I ROCK lazy! I do lazy better than anyone I know! Let me just... Read more
It's like not having water....
Seriously. I love water. I love Spark. If someone took away my water I would shrivel up. I feel like I'm shriveling just by being away from all my friends. Truly...I miss you all and wish I could spend more time talking to you, listening to... Read more
I didn't know you had to have a certain "look" to drink diet pop...
At the movie theatre the guy behind the counter struck up a friendly conversation with me by using flattery. I kinda thought that perhaps I was being hit on, but upon further reflection I think he was just bored and looking for someone to talk ... Read more
