Keeping on keeping on
Six days have gone by since my last blog. I've been on the treadmill several of them, and have given myself permission to not treadmill every day. Besides, the one morning every week I spend doing heavy cleaning at the animal shelter counts as... Read more
I DID IT!!!!
This morning after my shower and breakfast, I took my grandsons back to their house (we're 'sitting' today) so they could play. We had lunch at my house, then I kept my dr appt. On the way home, I stopped at the (new) Wal-Mart near my house an... Read more
Friday morning's catch-you-up
We got back home Tuesday afternoon this week, and I was way too tired to even think about using my treadmill, so I gave myself permission to rest. Unfortunately, that translated into not exercising on Wednesday either!

Catchin' you up on me
Ok, so I'm not blogging every day or so. I'm just not that interesting! LOL
Thankfully, God has seen fit to make sure no more of my loved ones have died for some weeks now; and He has blessed me abundantly with getting back on track healt... Read more
We're back home again. We took a whirlwind trip to Indiana to attend our niece's funeral, and got back home tonight. Gayle's death was unexpected, and she was only 58, but she's safe in the arms of Jesus tonight, and we'll see... Read more
Another week, another loved-one's death, but the Lord is in control
Good Monday morning, y'all.
If you read my blog from last Friday, you know it was a tough week. Yes, I made it thru, thanks to God's grace and comfort; and the comfort provided by my SP friends.
This week isn't starting out quite 'ri... Read more
Friday evening 5/13
So, my Mom died on Valentine's Day this year; last Sunday was Mother's Day, yesterday was Mom's birthday, and Tuesday morning I got two emails telling me that a dear former co-worker died. He was 52.
Jack was a good man, a hard worker, a g... Read more
Good (sunny) morning Everyone,
After so MUCH rain (we're more than 8 inches over normal for the year, most of it in April), yesterday and today are welcome sights. In fact, we're not expecting any rain for the next few days, and temps into... Read more
In the words of Paula Deane: "Hi, Y'all!"
The past several weeks, access to the cat rooms at the shelter have been limited - no volunteers are allowed in the (many) rooms where there is ringworm (thank you, Lord). So I've been cleaning a ... Read more
I've been under conviction from the Lord, and it became chrystal clear this morning that I have let SparkPeople.com become too 'big' in my life, instead of putting God first. It's nothing against SP, or the lovely people I've met online - just ... Read more
Sat night, 3/5
Today was Mom's Memorial service - a celebration of her and her life. Three of us daughters spoke of memories, and made everyone laugh at some point in each of our comments. Mom had the gift of hospitality, and everyone at (what was her forme... Read more
Sat (Mar 5th) Morning
First, thank you all for your prayers for me and my family.
Yes, the anti-anxiety pill works well - more just taking the edge off so I can deal with things (and that's just fine with me).
I'm dealing better and better with my loss of... Read more
My friends, I am struggling to get back on track on living healthfully and losing some of the pounds I gained during February. I'm an emotional eater, and believe me, I've had enuf emotion this month to last a looooong time, thank you very muc... Read more
Why I won't be on SP much for awhile
My sister called (from TX) Monday to tell me that God gave Mom the best Valentine's Day present ever - He took her home to be with Him. I'm rejoicing in that, and the knowledge that she's once again of sound mind and (new) body. Mom had been i... Read more
Free Ice Storms to a 'good' home!
Ok, can anyone give me a GOOD reason WHY we have to have ice storms? Yeah, I already know the mechanics of why, but WHY DO WE HAVE TO HAVE SO MANY! I'm sick of 'em alread!
It's been a 'bad' winter so far - cold, and ice storms, and we're ... Read more
