Bad Sparker! No Cookies!

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

Wow, it has sure been a long time. I am sorry.
It's not that I stopped trying to lose weight, or fell off any wagons. I just had so much on my plate sparkpeople, and other internet activities took a backseat.
Let's see how to catch up...
School has been going great. Currently on final exam for World History. I've already completed one essay, and the test itself. I have one more essay and a 5 page report to go. Then it's on to Biology.
I have a 4.0 GPA which rocks since my school has joined a Honor Society, so I could actually graduate with honors.
I joined a sorority, which is pretty cool, my sisters are great.
However I still have those "don't belong" feelings sometimes.
Oh well...
Craftwise, have been spinning yarn some, needle felting, working on some things to sell, and crocheting- working nonstop on hubby's birthday present.
Almost done.
Home schooling my son, aka the boy. It just works out better this year. And he is doing so well. His 6th birthday was last week. I'm so proud of him.
Now for the bad stuff:
The boy's biological father has stage 4 lung cancer and is dying. They are doing chemo but he was so weak before and it's just getting worse. We hadn't told the boy because we wanted to see how things were going to go with the chemo first. Well it's not going well. He's drugged up most of the time, he didn't even know his own mother the other day.
So Hubby and I talked and decided we better let the boy know so he could kinda be prepared. We'd gotten some books about death I'd been reading/discussing with him over the past couple months etc... trying to get him ready.
Anyway, we told him the other day. He took it better than we'd feared. He cried and is sad about it but he's ok.
Now we just wait and pray god's will be done.
I feel so bad for the boy and for his grandmother, she's lost so much. She's lost her Husband, her Sister, her best friend has Alzheimer's, and now her son is dying... how much more can this kind lady take?

Weight wise I have jumped one way or another, still fighting with my thyroid level... still fighting the fatigue of fibromyalgia...
I'm at 179, again, which although not where I wanted to be it's ok. With all the stress etc I'll take 179 any day!
Hopefully things will settle down enough for me to get back on here and do a challenge or something to get me moving more.
Well best get moving...
I will try to keep up....
Picture is my latest needle-felt creation she is not finished yet....
