Today has been a good day!

Friday, February 27, 2015      4 comments

It really feels great to be able to say that. In the past I generally would focus on all the things I didn't accomplish or that went wrong. However, today I did... - drink 8 glasses of water - walk over 9000 steps - take the do... Read more

Sunday, February 22, 2015      7 comments

I did make a U-turn, and I am moving in the right direction.

Monday, February 09, 2015      8 comments

When I wrote my last blog entry almost 3 weeks ago, I painted a picture for myself heading down a one-way street and facing trucks barreling down the road towards me. At that point I said that if I didn't make a U-turn, I would die. I am ... Read more

How did that happen!

Learning to see!

Wednesday, January 14, 2015      6 comments

I cannot believe I have spent more than a year on Sparks, and just now discovered that there are so many more emoticons besides the popular ones. There is food, fitness, seasonal, other, and flags. What puzzles me more than anything is how... Read more
