Hi I am living in Southwestern Ontario,Canada. My dad was in the RCAF so i lived on Air Force bases all across Canada while growing up. I met my husband in Ottawa and after we married we moved to his home town of Kapuskasing in Northern Ontario. A year later we moved to Hearst Ontario and lived there for 10 years. WE had two boys and adopted two girls as well as foster parented several children before we moved south again.Now we have lived in a small town near London Ontario since 1982 and that is the longest I have lived anywhere.
I have been married for 45 years and my oldest son and his family live with me to help with dad . I have been my husbands caregiver since 2008.

Hi everyone. I a from central Ohio. I was born and raised here and though I have traveled through many states this is where I choose to make my home. I live with my spouse Bill whom I care for and our daughter Kayleigh who is 16 and a sophomore in high school. Most our family is deceased so it is pretty much just the 3 of us.
In my spare time which is few, I love to crochet, read from my nook, visit our local library, sew, to name a few.
Having a hobby especially in the evening hours I find very relaxing and a great way to unwind and take my mind a little bit away from the everyday worries.
I hope to meet others and make lasting friendships here in the group. I wish you and the one you care for only the best.

Born in northern New Jersey, enjoyed many quick trips to NYC as a child. Moved due to loss of father's job; landed in northern Delaware for a few years.

My parents took a leap of faith and realized a dream of theirs: a large home with land "in the country" of SE Pennsylvania (below Lancaster).

It was a big change going from the city and suburbs to our small farm, but we LOVED it! Dogs, cats, our own horses; building hayloft forts in the barn, camping in the woods...

I still claim PA as my "home" state - maybe because I went to Penn State? After college graduation, married a military man (1st), moved around. Four-plus years in West Germany, the last half as a civilian (single mom) working for the Army.

Ended up in California - came for "Love" (2nd husband), and stayed after the divorce. Been here the last 33 years... but I'm still from PA!

Time to stop farting around and get serious about eating healthy. Start exercising again. The move is DONE.
GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? Low carb plan with lots of veggies and water aerobics at least 3X week. I was doing this but moving stress has halted my good habits. Time to get this going again. I am worth it.

I'm from Baltimore City Maryland but left shortly after graduating from high school. DH and I served our country for years and finally settled in Ohio to take care of his parents and Aunt. We live in Centerville Ohio now but also lived in Fairborn and Beavercreek Ohio. We finally found and purchased a one level home on a double cul-d-sac.

Hi!, how's the weather out your way? This morning before the sun came up, you found yourself waking to 29 degrees outside. Needless to say I've not warmed up all day.

My maternal grandparents moved here from the Pennsylvania-Dutch area, Grandpa worked in the Steel Mill up there after WWI before they moved down here in Northern Kentucky to work in the Steel Mill here. My Dad's parents were all from around here. At times this world doesn't seem so big after all. Hey, have a great week and Be Safe!

I am from central New Hampshire. My mom still lives in the town where she brought us up so that is where I am now. I have a home nearer the eastern part of NH. That makes me laugh because NH is so small (12 miles of seacoast). I have never lived in a city but where I am now is on a rural road that is busy considering it's rural. My home is on a very quiet road so it was a little hard getting used to.

Hi I'm Sal and I live south of Boston. The area used to be very rural but has become built up. We have about 10 acres and have chickens and several large gardens. (LOL My husband loves to grow food. Right now there is only 2 people in the house!) We used to have pigs and horses but not now.
My Mom lived with us for 2 1/2 years and I just recently moved her to a Rehab/NH. Right now she is back in the hospital. She is like a cat with nine lives. I keep thinking that this will be it and then she pulls through. Right now she is not doing too well. I spent about 7 hours by her bed but had to take a break. She just so wants for God to call her home. I feel so conflicted. I want her to go for her but I want her to stay for me. I guess I just wish she would go to sleep and wake up in heaven. She thinks that God forgot her. Goodness I think that was more infor than you were looking for.
About Spark - I absolutely love this site. My weight has just kind of plateaued but I won't give up! At least I have not gained any weight back. 21 pounds gone since Jan. I recently revamped my exercise program and am hoping for changes in my body to occur and I won't worry about the scale. Sal

and BREATHE!
