Matt made it home safely from Wisconsin. I have gotten a huge answer to prayer. My third child, Nathan, has been a problem since his teen age years. Breaking the law, drugs etc. Last week, driving without a license or insurance, he rolled his truck and this is the third one he has wrecked. He was out from ten pm to four am, got out of the truck and walked with his dog to a phone and called a friend to come get him. His boss is a Christian, and had a long talk with him. I have been praying for him to return to Jesus for years, and he called me the other day and told me he has gotten right with Jesus, is going to a faith based counseler , and is going to start going back to church. What an answer to prayer!!!!

Hi All,
Am making progress this week at the house. It is cooler so I have more energy. ;-) Even worked in DH's office yesterday and got some things moved out. This is emotionally exhausting but needs to be done. If DD and I keep the baby if Ddil can't work from home then we will need that room for the nursery! If not we have another guest room! ;-) Or the exercise room I always wanted. ;-)

Laura so good to see you post! Glad the Fall Festival was a success!! Having the little girl admit she didn't know Jesus is a great entry to explain and to invite her to church every week to learn about Him and His great love for her!! Which I am sure you did! ;-) But yes very sad she had no one tell her before now!
Praying the Lord will give you wisdom about what move to make and how to sell DDad's home and your own.
Sorry you lost some tree branches.

Elsie we are supposed to get rain today too!! Praying it comes, we need it so badly! Just can do without the theatrics!! ;-)

Hope Everyone has a great week!
Hugs and blessings,

Hi all

Quick update on the Fall Festival we had 17 children attend and we had lots of different families

HEARTBREAKER of the day is when I was telling a story and demonstration to SHINE for Jesus a little girl asked "WHO is Jesus?"

The person we rent the car parking from sent me a thank you note with a $25 gift card to Starbucks for helping get a car towed/removed that was blocking the driveway seems no one knew what to do and I just DID it - what a blessing!!!

The developers are STILL very interested in our property!!! Got an email that said once they build their new condos about 1 mile from here that we could have one for NOTHING and then they would owe us just the balance of the asking price. Something we will take a look at.

TIRED for sure - the last storm brought down several branches and limbs in our yard and it was exhausting moving them, pruning them and cutting them up

God Bless

Hello Everyone!! Happy Monday!!

You are welcome Pam! My schedule is erratic with different activities so some times I have my quiet time before going to bed when I know the next morning is going to be busy. Good to get your Sparking done before you go to work too and exercising when you get home!

Ali sounds like you had a great weekend!! Congrats to your DH for getting a deer! DS always tries but couldn't get the time this year. Reminds me I will have to get some meat for him for Christmas from the butcher to help fill his small freezer after his move with a new job.

Julie thanks for posting our prayer requests! You are so faithful!!

Kay glad so many came out!

Elsie so glad Daisy is settling in and loves to go places with you. We can't seem to get Sebastian used to the car. We take him on small trips and give him treats too. Maybe he will catch on when he finds not all the trips are to the Vet! He is just now 6 mths.

Hope Everyone has a great week!!

Morning,

I read over the post for the last week and 1/2, wow I did not mean to be away so long. Praying for all. Welcome back Nic! Welcome Pam!
emoticon

We have had a beautiful weekend. We went to a state park yesterday, had a picnic lunch and went hiking. Well, I hiked with a friend while my ds fished with his friend and my dd explored with her friend. We had a great day. Today will be church and then BBQ. My ds BS troop sold BBQ plates as a fund raiser to raise money. This should make for a restful day!

Thanks for sharing Delia, I do not live that far for there so it would be a fun trip.

How's everyone's week look? Last week was busy, busy, busy! This week should be a little better. I like having time at home. I have so much to do. My dh got a deer last weekend and I always clean the freezer before putting the deer in each year and I have not got to that yet. This will be tomorrows project.

Have a blessed Sunday!

Thank you Daddy's Girl, Julie and Elsie for your comments. I am also a school teacher and usually wake up around 6:30 to have quiet time before work. My plans are to wake up around 6:00 to do some sparking before hubby gets up, then have quiet time while he is having his... Since I get out of work around 3:30, this gives me time to exercise before I make dinner, clean up, and pack lunches.

Welcome PAMAPPLE - at least I think you are new to the group. If not welcome anyway and hello! LOL! I do not work outside the home but when I did - I made an effort to get up earlier in the morning to have my quiet time and exercise before work. My work at the time was as a middle school teacher. I was usually up by 5 AM those days. Often my hubby (who was active duty Air Force at the time) and I would walk in the evenings after supper. We would also ride bikes when possible. We really do not live in an area where we can do that anymore. Hopefully, people on here can give you some advice in that area!

Blessings,
Julie


Elsie - bless your heart! Hugs to you!

Hi Ladies,
Elsie so sorry to hear about that. Glad it all worked out well and she is doing so well now! That must have been very scary for you!!
Sorry your weight is up but that is understandable.

It is a bit cooler here today. Loving this weather!!

Pam great endeavor! I am retired so sorry I can't help you.

Hope Everyone has a great weekend!

Hello fellow christian sparkers!

I am trying to work out a daily schedule for myself to fit in prayer and devotions in the morning, which I am already disciplined as a morning pray-er, but don't always fit in a devotional. I would like to wake up around 6:00 AM, as opposed to 6:30, which I do now. This would give me time to spark in the morning before work, which would help keep me motivated to eat healthy and exercise on a consistent basis. I have to leave for work around 8:00, and would like to exercise after work, since I get out of work at 3:20

Does anybody, preferably a working sparker, have a schedule that is working for them? I am not making the best use of my time, but would love some suggestions. :)

Yes Daddy's Girl it was a long trip but she had to see a specialized surgeon that was 250 miles from here. She was transferred by ambulance because it was so serious. The ulcer had perforated at the junction where they had done her gastric bypass surgery. Could have been a very dangerous surgery but God guided the surgeon's mind and hands.

AS I expected my weight was up a lot today due to eating all the meals out for the 5 days she was in the hospital..up 4 pounds...UGH!!!

Chilly with misty rain here today.

Waiting for the repairman who will be here somewhere between 2 and 4 PM..

There always seems to be something that needs replacing or repairing doesn't there? I didn't notice so much when DH took care of most of this stuff. I had to replace tires earlier this summer. Did I mention I had to replace the hot water heater last week? After it was done the guest bathroom sink faucet wouldn't work. DS discovered yesterday the aerator had collected plastic and that was why the water would not flow! So glad that is fixed!

Looks like we might get some rain today! Please Lord let it rain and really soak the ground well!

Elsie so glad Valerie got a good report from the Dr. That was a long trip to see the Dr!!

Hope Everyone has a good day!

Yes, Sas, they sure are.I had to get all 4 new ones before I took my trip to Michigan in August

Today I drove over 500 miles...left at 7:30 this morning and got back around 8 tonight. I had to take Valerie for her doctor appointment 250 miles a way. She has been cleared o drive now and doesn't have to go back for 6 weeks.

TOPS in the morning.

Thanks! I have a small apartment, but I am going to try walking outside with the dogs. Right now I'm getting past some sinus issues and just want to sleep.

I have found out I have some other things going on too, but won't know more until another dr's appointment in a month. I should see some weight loss and hormone balancing acts take place when that issues is solved. Sometimes it's good to know it's a real problem and not just "getting old" or a whiny girl thing.

Thanks again.

Welcome back NIC. Glad you can share your grief among friends. We all have our trials and it gives us compassion for others and their griefs and trials too. Is there some inside activity you can do while DS is doing something else? I used to walk on the tread mill and look at outdoor scenery with peaceful music. It helped a lot with the "trapped" indoor feeling.
Hope you will be back often! Helping others with their problems sometimes helps us to find answers to our own.

Elsie how are the little ones doing? They can bring so much happiness but they surely are busy too.

Just 3 weeks and 2 days till DDil's due date!! Looking forward to holding that little one. First baby in the family to hug and hold for 28 yrs!! That is a long time and we are going to love this little one much!! ;-) Just wish DH was here to enjoy him/her too!

Hugs to all and hope everyone has a good day!!

I don't know where to begin, except I'm glad to see friendly faces.

I had my yearly exam last week and cholesterol is high and good is low. Not so much of the kind of food, but more of the portion size and lack of activity.

My son as autism and going outside is a big fight. Hiking is even worse. 10 minutes into a walk he's whining and crying. Please don't think I'm being cruel, it's simply fact. He has low muscle tone so physical activity is hard. Every diagnoses comes a level of grief. It seems when a new challenge is brought around, the grief cycle comes back.

So, in a way, I've been grieving my outdoor activity level being taken away. It's been hard, but he's such a joy, and so smart.

I'm back to try this again.

We only did one and a half miles instead of our three since it was POURING rain and then we saw lightening, so we headed home. I stopped at the tire store and ordered new tires for my car, and they will be in tomorrow.

Sorry I deserted you all. We had another death in the family last Sunday. My husbands brother died, so hubby flew out on Saturday to Wisconsin to attend his funeral. So, I am home alone, holding down the fort. I may have to have surgery on my hand. I have a large bump in the middle of my palm. I have been to the doctor, she said it could be trigger finger but again not, so she gave me a shot in the hand and told me to come back in a month. The custody battle is over, but we still do not have a decision from the judge. Alan's hand is healed, and he is back to work, but still doing physical therapy. I am so tired, but at least I got a good night's sleep last night. I so miss my mother in law, and now my brother in law.

Hey all, have been in AZ for the past couple weeks visiting family and friends and still have another 2 weeks plus before we get back home. I am sooooo off my normal routine and food but I am trying a new food program ( hate the word 'diet') and haven't seen anything change other than I haven't gained anything like I normally do when we are away from home. I have been able to get to the nearby pool for some 35 - 40 minutes of lap swimming though. Not able to get onto Sparks every day and what time I do get is very short compared to normally, so am unable to keep up with everyone else. have to run already, hugs, Cheryl

Morning,

O.K. I have the Spark activity tracker. I just got it. Monday I did my usual walk and did great, even went over, then yesterday I had a normal day, no exercise, no walk. I really do not move much unless it is with a purpose. Have you ever thought about and do you know have much you move?

Blessings,

Sorry I haven't been able to keep up. Out of town to visit long time friends and now my son's parents in law. Then painting and repair day at my house on Saturday and company too. ;-) Sunday was a good day of rest until we found the hot water heater was leaking! So living room carpet is wet and yesterday was spent replacing the hot water heater. God provides!!

Will try to stay current again but more company is coming for this weekend! ;-)

Elsie will pray for your Grandson. Glad his almost Ex is not getting away with the crime. Praying she will get some help and take it! And that he gets custody!

Hugs to all!

Please add to your prayer list...

Grandson Bob as his soon to be ex wife ran over him with his truck. He seems to be ok with several fractures. He is attempting to gain full custody of his boys (3 yrs old and 1 year old). Currently she is in jail for vehicular assault. She is mentally ill but refuses to take meds.


Valerie had emergency surgery last night for a perforated ulcer. She is progressing well so far.

Laura-------sometimes waiting on God is so hard and tends to be frustrating doesn't it?

Daisy seems to be settling down well. I will get her to the vet next week for a check up and shots.

It rained heavy rain here for over 17 straight hours from last evening until this afternoon. Still misty sprinkling.

The high temp for today was at midnight at 64 and has dropped to 52 now going down into the 40's tonight. More rain over the next few days. Lots of flooding around here. Happy I'm not near a river, stream, or creek. There will be some field flooding which sometimes goes over the road.

Another beautiful day in Boston

Got a nice long walk/run with Linus. He is so cute. I was practicing my next solo for church and in he walks with his favorite toy, drops it at my feet and gives me a Nudge. I said to him "is is my singing?" HAHA

They have started the fundraiser for Linus too

Weight is doing good , I do need a really good night's sleep though

Nothing from the developers and I am TRYING NOT to rush ahead of God but I so want to say FORGET IT

Afternoon all - gorgeous day

We got the results from Linus' holter monitor. The cardiologist was pleased with them Normal heartbeat can have 25-50 arrhythmias in a 24 hour period. Linus had 57. Of those 57 ONLY 2 were in a row. ALL good news. No need for meds but we need to just keep an eye on other symptoms and no curtailing of activities as well Really how do you NOT let a dog run. Loved the cardiologist for saying that - if they die from running they died happy. I know it might sound bad but it is what it is

Tests get repeated every 6 months SO WE NEED THAT FUNDRAISER that some people are running for Linus


For me my foot was taped up again today - don't like it being taped - I opted for a MUCH cheaper orthotic for my feet - $55 over $400 - thank you I will take the 55

Enjoy the day all

Just a drop by to share we got the test results on my ds lymes test and it looks like it is negative! I really do not understand it all, but that is what it looks like. We see the doctor the 1st of November so we will go over all of it with her then.

Thank you for your prayers!

Hi Anjay..........

another nice day here with warm sunshine and just enough breeze to keep the air moving.....perfect day to have the doors and windows open...

new dog, Daisy, seems to be adjusting well........me I'm not so sure of right now......lol....she sure isn't my DJ..

We took them to get their nails trimmed this morning and Lacey growled at her and tried to pin her against the side of the van...

Take care...........Elsie

Ali-----it's best to begin slowly anyway.......more effective that way...

I am a grateful recipient of a beautiful fall day here. wonderful sunshine with a hint of a breeze. I have laundry drying out on the line.

Becka just left to take the girls next door so she can go to work so I also get an evening of quiet....lol.

Morning Friends,

I did pretty good last week and lost what I had gained on our vacation. This week I plan to start walking/running for exercise. Starting back slowly, but starting back.

What kind of exercise does everyone else do?

Julie, thanks for the prayer list and continuing to keep it updated.

We should get my ds lymes test back today. Thank you all for your prayers.

Blessings,

Laura (His Own)
1) Update for prayer with the developers - they are still working out logistics and we should hear back this week - pray that God will settle this in the next couple of weeks - we told them we would not move out immediately and would probably move in the spring NO problem with that either
2) Linus had his cardiology consult almost $800 and we came home with a holter monitor JUST LIKE THE HUMANS HAVE. They will read the results but he does have some kind of arrythimia. They are not sure what will be next till they read the results of the monitor - we have already applied for pet insurance BUT think we may not get any because of his medical history

Evening,

Hope you all had a blessed weekend. We had beautiful weather. Today was a family dinner celebrating my dad and dd birthdays. Fun to see everyone.

Laura, good to hear Linus is doing better. Praying for the properties, good to hear the developers are still interested.

Elsie, so glad you got some rest.

Hope everyone is getting some rest before starting again tomorrow.

Blessings,

It has been a beautiful fall day here. Again able to have the doors and windows open this afternoon.

We had our monthly fellowship breakfast this morning. Lots of good things to eat. Wednesday is our pastor appreciation dinner and then a gospel sing since this is Maple Leaf week.

I've just had a week of rest from my last 3 weeks of chaos.

HI All

Things are crazed here - Linus is doing much better = poor pup -Praising God he was rescued because he would have had NO treatment for all the things that have happened to him

Developers are still interested in the house

Please pray for the solo I will be singing on Sunday and my testimony - all for God's glory

Hugs to the team

Evening,

God is in control and has a plan. We found out my dd should clear the waitlist so we will just continue to pray. Thank you all for your prayers.

We always take a fall vacation and the older our children get the harder it is. My ds is a junior and my dd is a sophmore. We may have just taken our last fall vacation for a few years. Catching up is just hard!

We are resting, playing catch up and celebrating some September birthdays this weekend.

Hope you have a blessed Saturday.

I cleaned the weed/grass out of the tires I want to put mums in so now I just have to get down the road and purchase some. One tire has mums already in it from last year which is full of buds. Some if it has bloomed out--real pretty..

I am going to have to exchange some of the items I bought because the sizing is just too small. I should have only gone down 1 size instead of 2.

Hopefully, there are too many mistakes in the TOPS books..

Looks like I am getting one of my daughter's dogs...a shepherd mix. The 2 dogs have begun antagonizing each other so I am going to take Daisy to see how she does with me. The good thing is that she is used to the babies so no worry there. Plus she is house broke, too.........lol

For this being a nothing planned day, I have accomplished quite a bit.

I made the TOPS deposit and mailed the stuff off that needed to be done, did some shopping, and got a jug of water for the water cooler. I bought some SMALLER clothes on sale and with a 20% off coupon. Also got some things for the church.

AND!! I have gotten the TOPS books up to date...hopefully without too many mistakes.

God sure has been leading me today...........Blessings...Elsie

Hello all,

Sorry to be MIA. I have been sick for the past two weeks. Praise to God that He always gives us the courage and strength to continue on despite the pitfalls of life. I am so blessed even doing this sickness because it draws me closer to Him.

I am in seminary right now and I am loving learning more about God and His awesomeness. He gives us all so much. I am in awe of Him .

Praying for all of you

Sandy

Good Morning All!! October 2nd Where does the time go? Just 6 to 8 weeks until our precious grand baby arrives! Mama is doing well. Baby in good position!! Thanks for your prayers! We feel him/her kicking and sometimes can see ripples of movement across Mama's tummy! So precious!

Anjay so glad you are still posting and staying connected! Hugs to you Dear Lady!!

Ali sorry you missed a class your DD wanted. Sometimes those things teach our kids the most. Mom and Dad are not perfect either and then later down the road you see the reason the Lord allowed it to happen. Other times like you have done, you ask prayer, and God opens up the door and your child's faith has been built up!! Trust He knows what is best and relax and watch His fabulous truth unfold! I have to remind my self of this. It is easy to worry when I am the one that has to make decisions now. I know they will affect my adult children in days to come and I don't want to make it any harder for them than it will be anyway. Hugs!!

Rainy and stormy day. Not going to the fair after all! But as I told Ali, God knows best and it is all in His plan. So I will rest and enjoy the rainy day!! Oh how we need the rain!!

Hugs to All!!

Evening,

Melody so glad to hear from you. Sorry about you having to live in the city, at lease there is light at the end of the tunnel, just 10 months. Do you know where you are moving next?

Hey friends, I messed up and did not get my dd registered for a class she really wanted and now she is wait listed. I feel horrible about it. I am praying she clears. I know it is minor and with everything we have going on it really is minor, but I would appreciated prayers on this.

On another note. I have started getting it together again and got things more organized today, eating right all week and I am exercising again. This is good for me.

Daddys-girl, thanks for sharing. this is something I have been trying to do is just focus on the Lord and stay close to Him. this helped me today!

Praying for all.

How's everyone else doing?

Blessings,

emoticon to October.......it's here whether we want it to be or not.....lol

The day started out cool and hazy but has become breezy and sunny,,,nice to have the doors and windows opened again....love airing out the house. temp started at 66 and now is up to 79 going into the mid to high 80's today.

Another laid back day for me with nothing scheduled until 4:30 when I leave to go to work at the church.

This morning I did a load of dishes, hung out 2 loads of laundry, and pulled weeds and grass out of the tires I want to put some mums in. Also, put out 2 Halloween lawn decorations.

Take care............Elsie

Elsie thanks for the details. Sounds like a great time. Glad you were able to help. Photos and family stories are the way we are going to have to teach my Grandchildren about their Grandpa. glad I have so many and that he enjoyed spending time with his family and all the kids at all ages. Glad I was a shutterbug too! ;-)
Glad the babies don't disturb your rest too often. Yes, bless their hearts they have many adjustments to make.

Anjay praying and hope you see some good results soon!

Hugs to All!!

Daddy's Girl-----our church was the main sponsor but it was held at a church in Joplin where most of the people live. We had numerous other sponsors and plenty of donated items such as the scanners, office supplies, volunteers, food, drinks, and probably more that I don't remember. Also had newspaper and TV advertising. There is a "save your photos day" web site. It is also on the NDPR web site and on Facebook.

Praise the Lord that I have a calm week. I can finally get here at a reasonable time and post without being so tired that I can't think.

I still have some catch up to do with the TOPS books---mainly I am behind 2 monthly reports. I plan on doing them Friday.

Sometimes it is difficult to sleep if the girls are having a wakeful night. They are in the other end of the house so that does help some. There has been a lot of changes in the past 4 to 6 months so they are still adjusting and have some difficult days. In time this will settle down too.

Anjay----how's your pain doing?

Blessings.......Elsie

Morning All!! So glad to see some posts here today!!
Today is much better for DD and I than a few days last week. Don't know what spurred the hard days but thankfully they seem to be behind us! ;-)

Elsie is it hard sleeping with little ones in the house or are they good sleepers? Sorry you had to take a nap but glad you were able to get one! Glad you had a calmer day yesterday!!
The presentation about photos sounds wonderful. It wasn't recorded was it? What a neat idea to help folks scan their photos! Was that at church or somewhere else?

Ali I know where you are coming from when you say you don't know why it is happening to your children. My DH used to say, if life was easy we wouldn't know how faithful our Lord and Saviour is to us. He helps us get through these tough times. That has helped me a lot since losing him. I don't need to understand I just need to get as close as I can to the Lord and stay there! How I respond to life's challenges teaches my children about our Precious Lord. (I am going to copy this comment to you and post it on my bedroom mirror!! To remind me on the tough days! ;-) )
Glad you have had some time to get away with DH and with your family too.
Please keep us posted on the lyme's test. And know we are praying!

Julie thanks for another prayer list!! You are so faithful and we do appreciate it!!

CKay am praying. Hope you will check in with us often too.

Hugs and blessings to all!!

My co-leader on the Alabama team was diagnosed with lymphoma and needs to take a break from leading to focus on her treatments and health. If you would pray for her that would be great. You can send her a goodie and let her know you are praying at:

I had a much calmer day today...just church this morning and Bible study this evening.

Yesterday we hosted a "save your photos" day where people brought in their old photos to be scanned and stored so they could make a digital record of them. The scanners did 27,600 + photos. I worked the check in desk so wasn't as busy as they were. Also had a lady from the Missouri State Archives giving a presentation on saving photos and documents. She gave a very informative presentation.

This week is back to my normal busy week....Elsie

God's gift to you: a clean slate every day: your gift to God: what you put on that slate....

2) Prayers of healing for our Dog Linus who we rushed to the ER last night. He has GI Issues so they really flared up BUT one Vet Tech that they heard something with his heart and he was rushed off to the critical care unit immediately - they did not hear that abnormal beat again and they checked over 6 hours - he is home THANK GOD on a bland diet and they gave us canned food which is great - Vet bill was $811 - needless to say our "children" STILL have not gotten health insurance for him and we paid it - they are vacation and have already sent to us $350 of that -
3) Praise and prayer - thank God He finally led us to just take my Dad to Hawaii and take the money out of our retirement to do so - We are taking the entire family and a neighbor will watch our dog - THIS IS OUR CHRISTMAS PRESENT to them and theirs to us is to pay for the tours. PRAY we stay well and my Dad who served in Pearl harbor is very excited
4) Pray for my health - think I have Plantar Fasciitis with my left foot - I have basically been sandals and barefoot ALL summer - also last night my blood pressure ROCKETED with the dog not feeling well - found out I FORGOT to take my pills in the AM which could have led to that issue - when I saw how high it was I did what my Doctor always tells me to do - take another pill and adjust - and call him. I have not taken it today
5) Praise we are already registering kids for Winter Bible Camp

Good Afternoon Friends,

Wow, sorry it has been so long. My dh and I took a few days off together, then the children and I went to the Columbus Zoo again before our membership expired and last we took a family vacation. We lost most of our summer with my children's illnesses.

Thanks for asking, my dd had micro plasma pneumonia and my ds is now being checked for lymes. Just pray. I really do not understand why this is all happening.

Looking forward to checking in a little more. Hope everyone is having a blessed Sunday.

Praying for you Anjay!

Thanks for the prayer list as always Julie.

Laura, how's Linus?

Blessings,
Ali emoticon emoticon

Julie - Celebrating both sounds good to me!! We have a precious "little" with us today and Princess had crafts for him to do. They made an owl face out of tree bark, acorn tops, and a peanut out of the shell for his nose. They also used tongue depressors, felt and paint to make a Scarecrow face. So cute. It was a fun day for a little boy and the dogs and they are all napping now!! Nice and quiet while Princess has run to get older brother from school !! ;-) It will not be so peaceful in a few minutes! LOL

LOL! We can celebrate both days - every calendar I own says this year it is the 23rd plus I googled it and one thing says the 22nd and three other things said the 23rd! Who knows!!! So, let's celebrate both days! I love fall! We had a fall morning too - cool, crisp air. It was actually 49 degrees when I got up! Love it! We did some fall activities today (aka - crafts).

Hope everyone is having a beautiful day!

Keep all of Oregon in prayer please, this state is on fire on all sides. I think our coastal area is the only thing not burning. It is supposed to rain tonight and through the week. We need some downpours in the area that is on fire.

Happy First Day of Autumn Everyone!! emoticon

Elsie sorry the little ones have had a hard day which makes everyone else have a hard day! Hope you are more rested and feel more perky! It isn't like you to be down.

I am feeling better and am taking control of my life again. Am walking and eating better. I feel so much better. No sodas for 4 days and am drinking more water. Hope the scales soon show a good report too. I don't want my children to be stuck with an ailing old mother so I better do something about it! I hope this is a sign the worst of the grief is past and I am learning to adjust! ;-)

Hugs to All!
