Today is Tuesday and it is my usual weigh in day - and I am afraid to get on it. With my back being so bad the last month, I think I might have gained. I don't want to see it. Last night was the 2 year anniversary of my husband and my firs... Read more

You know that Progresso Soup commercial where all these women call on the and say "It fits!" get a high five and celebrate with the Progresso ladies but that one woman says it to a guy and he's clueless? She then says, "Is there a woman I can ta... Read more
New Driver's License Photo - ugh.

Well - if anyone out there ever needs additional motivation to keep on trucking with your SP plan, go get a new driver's license picture taken. I finally got around to doing that yesterday. I've been needing to get the address and last name... Read more

I absolutely love this but I think one had better be an XS to confidently parade about while sporting elephants upon oneself. Perhaps that is a worthy goal.... Read more

So I'm doing the 30-day shred challenge that Vintagepage on Sole Sparkers put out there and ... well ... I've learned some new things about myself. First - it is absolutely possible for every square inch of your body to hurt all at the same... Read more
OH! I'm back where I started - and that is actually a GOOD thing

I was having a bad week. I hurt my back and couldn't work out. I'd regained all the weight I'd lost and then some over the last 2 months and holidays due to stress over the job situation. So when I restarted Spark, it was with a little mot... Read more
Making Time for ME - How do YOU do it?
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      5 comments

I think I am experiencing the typical thing most women experience. I can't justify taking time for me, "because there is just so much to do." Oh - how many times have I said that? Since I work out of our house, I feel like I can't tak... Read more
I'm in Cell Phone Hell
Friday, January 18, 2013      6 comments

I am not a techno-geek. I do not have to have the latest gadget or newest deal. I don't know (or care) what the difference is between Android/SmartPhone/4G/3G. I actually resisted even getting a phone for years. The only thing I do insist ... Read more

I bet THAT title got your attention! Let me start by assuring you it wasn't human, or this story would have a whole different bent. This past weekend my husband got up on Saturday morning and was really sick. He fully succumbed to the cold... Read more

I try. I really do. But for the life of me - I simply do not know how I end up in these situations, other than for the amusement of others. Yesterday I woke up and decided that in order to launch my online vintage store today, I was going t... Read more
Almost Ready to Launch!

I had to share this. My store is almost ready to launch on Etsy. I needed to list 8 items and they are ready. I'm trying to add 4-5 a day so there is a variety. I was going through my photography and came across this photo I took. I love it! I... Read more
Ok - The snark monster in me is coming out. I have a pet peeve.

When did I turn into my mother? Or worse - when did I become cranky Clint Eastwood in Grand Torino? I am metaphorically yelling at all the teenagers out there who are metaphorically standing on my lawn. Please - someone tell me when the 'fa... Read more
It was worse than I thought and other updates
Monday, January 07, 2013      4 comments

Ugh. I got on the scale today after a month and a half of illness and I was right. I not only gained back ALL the weight I'd lost, I added 3 pounds for good measure. So it is back to the beginning again. Again. I have said that so many ti... Read more
Starting over ...because (GASP!)...I'm wearing MOM JEANS
Friday, January 04, 2013      4 comments

So - the past few months have been - well - difficult. My lupus flared up in October and I have a bad habit of disappearing when it does. I feel like no one wants to be around sick people. Then my arthritis kicked in and my feet went wonky so I ... Read more
Was there a full moon last night?

Hello all again. I've been away from blogging with a nasty flu and cold and through the fog of Nyquil - well - words were difficult. Spelling was even worse. Somehow I managed to not only sound like Elmer Fudd, but write like him too. I fwelt ... Read more
