I joined Spark in May 2009, a time when I was at my lowest point bo... Read more
I have been away too long
Good Afternoon Spark Friends,
It has been a long time since I have posted a blog, or really done any activity on Spark. After a few friends reached out to me, I realized how much I miss them and others I have gotten to know over the past se... Read more
Where does the time go?

Mike and I are still v... Read more

Two months since my last blog

My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
No, it’s not a comedy like the Alexander movie that is currently showing. Sunday was one of my worst days in a very long time.
It started out okay – coffee and conversation with Mike, a little house cleaning and laundry.
In the early a... Read more
Trying to enjoy fall while dealing with Mom’s anxiety
Fall is my favorite time of the year – leaves changing colors, cooler temps and no mosquitoes. I can sit on the deck in the morning, enjoying a cup of coffee or in the evening with a glass of wine or water and my favorite guys. The air smells am... Read more
Allergies, work reclassification and life in general
This week has found me plagued with allergies. I am allergic to dust mites and they were out in full force after we had to turn on the furnace when temperatures dipped into the 30s and reached high in the upper 40s and low 50s. Dust that had set... Read more
It has been quite a while since I blogged or been able to correspond much with my Spark Family. Summer is the busiest time at work, and there has been a lot going on in my personal life too.
This afternoon we are holding an open house in ou... Read more
A short update
It has been a while since I blogged. My time has been full of family, work at home and insanity at work.

Catching up with old friends and family, fun and possible promotion at work, and roof troubles
I am finding hard to believe that summer is about half over (according to my son’s school schedule anyway). It feels like only yesterday we were still shivering in the cold temperatures. But wait a minute – it did get down into the lower 40F deg... Read more
