Today was a pretty good day for mom. When I arrived there this afternoon, she told me she wanted out of the hospital - she could lie in bed at home! I explained that lying in bed wasn't what she was there for anymore - now she had to start doi... Read more

Mom was a little better today - until they gave her a shower. The "shower chair" wasn't very comfortable and didn't give her enough back support. I helped with the shower and we worked as fast as we could. She was fine again when we got her back... Read more

I didn't have much time today to reflect on my goals or my progress. In fact, I didn't feel like I did a very good job of Sparking today. But sitting here, trying to write a blog entry because of a challenge, made me realize that a lot of what... Read more

Staying focused
Saturday, February 27, 2010      8 comments

It's easier to think about my personal program after I've read some of my friend's blogs! It makes me look at things that I do and/or have done. Another reason that the sharing of ideas, suggestion, highs and lows is such an important part of ... Read more
