Wow! Have I really been on Spark long enough to reach 100,000 points? Awesome!!!
So far, my weekend has been pretty good. We got off to a rough start yesterday. Mike was itching to leave at 7:30 a.m. I hadn't even showered yet! Plus, M... Read more
"Blessings" - Laura Story
I thought that with all the storms and troubles going on, this song would provide some comfort. I hope that all of my Spark friends are doing great! Enjoy. This is Laura Story's newest song. Very beautiful!

Okay, so since my doctor's appointment last week, I have noticed that my sleep has been a little bit better (once I got through the interruptions last week). It seems that I'm actually sleeping all night! Yeah! Now, it's the getting ready for ... Read more
Another great song!
You Are More (Tenth Avenue North)
There's a girl in the corner
Tear stains on her eyes
From the places she's wandered
And the shame she can't hide
And she says
How did I get here
I'm not who I once was
And I am cripp... Read more

Be strong in the Lord and
Never give up hope
You're gonna do great things
I already know
God's got His hand on you so
Don't live life in fear
Forgive and forget
But don't fo... Read more
Frustrated, but starting to feel better
Okay, so I finally get something to help me sleep and I haven't yet had a night of interrupted sleep. Tuesday night, Mike was getting ingredients ready for his spaghetti sauce (so there was kitchen noise), then the phone rang right before 10:00... Read more
So, my thyroid is fine. I'm not anemic and no infections. So, she's prescribing something to help me sleep and we'll go from there. I want to thank everyone for the thoughts and prayers. That helps just as much as anything else.... Read more
Well, the doctor's appointment went okay. She drew blood to test my thyroid. I might know the results by tonight, but if not it will be Thursday before I find out (they aren't in the office on Wednesday). If everything is normal, then she sai... Read more
Just checking in...
I've had a rough week this week. I haven't had any motivation to do anything. I've still done my morning workouts, but my effort was probably not what it could have been. My eating has been okay, but I've made a few choices that could have be... Read more
Haven't blogged for a few days...
It is so hot today. It's only May 10, and they are calling for record-breaking temps in the mid-90s. That's Iowa weather for you! It is windy, so at least the air is moving. We did turn the central air on last night (I do not do good in hot ... Read more
Wow! What a week! T-ball games, concerts, early outs, lock-ins. Why is it that my boys aren't too busy until the month of May? They are only in 2nd grade and preschool! Jacob's concert went great last night. The preschoolers only did 3 song... Read more
Wednesday, May 4
Ugh! I really don't like early out days. The boys are being very noisy and I have a migraine threatening to attack.
Anyway, this week has been going pretty good so far. I'm having no problem reaching my step goal of 7,000 steps. Between ... Read more

Wow! Awesome end to April!
So, we are at my parents' house for the weekend. I decided to get up and go for a walk on the trail this morning. It started out a bit chilly (it was cloudy and breezy), but as I was walking the sun came out and it warmed up. I caught the tra... Read more
