Thank God For a Super Support System...

It's Just One Day....And Who Needs Water Anyway?

Weekend With the Grandson...
I got to spend this last weekend with my grandson, Shane. It was incredible. I haven't done this with any of my grandkids, I haven't been in a place in my own head that I was able to. In the past I would tell them that I wanted to do something l... Read more
It Can Stop Raining Now...

I Want to Thank SparkPeople!!
I am incredibly pleased with the newest additions to the Spark Awards! I know we don't always "enjoy" the changes that get made here, we get used to how something works and we are NOT creatures comfortable with change. But you know what? We a... Read more
Update on the Furbabies....
I took Henry and Manny in to see the doc this morning. Manny has a split on his tail, it looks as though someone may have picked him up by his tail and he reacted defensively, rats will do that, they can split the skin and escape in the wild. ... Read more

Counting my blessings...
I had something happen recently that made me really count my blessings. I was going out for my walk with very little enthusiasm. My inner voice, you know, the lazy one was going hot and heavy trying to convince me that I really didn't want to do... Read more
My New Pedometer...
I recently lost my Omron pedometer, it either fell off my hip or I left it in the bathroom I was in while out of town. I was pretty heartbroken because I have gone through a number of them since I started tracking and this one was a very good f... Read more
Wake Up Call...
