When it comes to friends, I am one lucky girl!!
When I was young, I was told that if I found one true friend in this world, I would be very fortunate. Well, I have found several. I have a small inner circle, who I truly cherish. This past week, I have just been blown away by the actions of... Read more
How could he do that to me; it was unconscionable, unforgivable and cruel.
Emotional pain. It hurts. It hurts far worse, and longer, than physical pain.
This is a therapeutic blog; a rant. I was hurt this week. It cut deep and I will get over it; but this one will take time. Let me give the background.

Things never seem to go as planned...LOL!
I finally was sprung from the hospital yesterday...woohoo! I was supposed to be discharged on Tuesday, but, as Murphy's Law dictates, things did not quite go as planned. During the ERCP, my surgeon said that there was a great deal of bleeding;... Read more
"Live like you are dying"; a cliche or not so much?
It's been awhile; but, with me and blog posts, it's always a bit of time between, yes?...LOL! I have had some very kind, gracious and caring fellow Sparklers email me and ask w'sup, so I thought I would blog about it. And yes, y'all know it's ... Read more
Life isn't fair; but, after all, who said it would be, right?
I think this blog entry will be therapeutic in nature for me. It's a bit of a rant, I think, and a bit of an outlet for just saying all the things that I don't think I can to the people around me.
Typically, I never think that I am really ... Read more
Mud Run, here I come!
Yeah, I know, it's been awhile - always is a bit of time in-between my blog entries. Life is sooo busy; that old adage that "time flys the older you get" is soooo true! It seems that there are not enough hours in the days lately. Then, on Sun... Read more
Still here...it's been awhile, I know...
Yep, I am still here. This year has been a bit crazy, as I am sure that it has been for many people. Clearly, my body is still fighting me, which is fine - because I get up every day to fight it right back. Taking care of myself has turned in... Read more
Yet, another hospital procedure required..DAMNIT!
A few months back, I began to sporadically begin having pain up under my right rib - it would feel like a gas pain, but I knew it wasn't gas. It would come, sometimes, after I hadn't eaten anything. Then, about six weeks ago, I began to have p... Read more
Back in the pool...
I finally did it, and it felt good. I drove down to the Yonker's Bally's to use their pool to begin training for the 2009 Hudson River Swim for Life. Keep in mind, I have not been in a pool since October-ish of 2007 - right after the 2007 Swim... Read more
Lord Jesus, Zone Pilates Does Work!!
In an effort to change up my routine, and to fill in the days when I am not lifting, I ordered the Zone Pilates Legs DVD. I need something for the legs as I cannot do deadlifts, leg press, squats or the elliptical for the next few months.

Taking Steps on the Comeback Trail..
Instead of paying a rather large chunk of money to re-join the Y to use the pool, I upgraded my regular gym membership so that I could drive down to their Yonkers branch to use the pool. I figure I can do that on the weekends when I have more t... Read more
"Is Your Limp Forever?"..Yes, Another Dating Story...
Y'all, I just HAD to blog about this one!! I have been reading more and more as well as keeping many issues of my "Muscle & Fitness" and "Cooking Light" magazines, so I broke down and went shopping last Saturday for a new bookcase.
The sto... Read more

A Reflection, Looking Toward 2009, The Year That Will Be Mine!
Well, well, well - here I am, yet again, on the first day of a brand new year; looking back on the past year and reflecting on what I want to do during the new year. I don't do new year's resolutions; I think they are crap. I think that I shou... Read more
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!
You know, when one decides to "blog", I believe that it is a sort of presumptuous decision. We are assuming that someone is going to care enough to read it, without thinking we are off our rocker or have totally lost it..ahahahahha.
Many, ... Read more
