I hope everyone had a blessed and happy Easter.
I am going to be taking a hiatus from SP for an undermined length of time.
I will check my spark mail from time-to-time, if you want to stay in contact with me.
I appreciate all the friendships I have formed.
I am fine - life just doesn't have enough hours.

    Hope you are doing well. I am back at least for the time being. Had a friend, Carol, (70), is in Johns Hopkins now with a broken hip and she has had diabetes for years. She broke the hip in her home. They are not sure how she did it. But when taken to our local hospital before being transported to Johns Hopkins, she was in the progress of having a heart attack.

    Her blood sugar is out of wack. Doctors are still debating whether or not to do surgery as she is very high risk due to heart issues, which is understandable.

    As a result, I wanted to know more about Prediabetes and diabetes so I purchased the "Prediabetes for Dummies" book and my daughter who is now a Doctor of Nursing Practice lent me one "Diabestity". I finished reading the Dummies book and am about half-way through the Diabestity one. I learned many things. Very interesting how complicated the body is and if it doesn't work like clock work, how much trouble and ill health one can suffer because of it.

    Me, been busy. The lichen planus has subsided for the most part. Of course daughter finally had her baby boy on Christmas Day last year. Her hubby finally arrived home in April after being deployed for the most part of her pregnancy. They just recently purchased a home in Virginia Beach where he is stationed, and moved in a couple of weeks ago.

    Younger daughter is very busy. Working for M.A.C. makeup at their store in a mall near Baltimore where she is living now. Plus she is bartending in the same area and taking online college classes to earn her business degree.

    I see older daughter more often than younger, although she is much further away. But I still keep in contact with younger daughter by way of text messages & very short conversations.

    I am back on track with eating healthy again and walking and using the aid of a pedometer as well as a health care advocate from my insurance company. They have been great. They help me by way of phone calls but they do not take the place of my doctor.

    So I am definitely doing more walking and using a pedometer, and when I can, go swim at the "Y". I used their indoor track this morning while reading a book. Weren't but a couple of people using the track. One for walking, one for jogging, and one for running. At least I know that I can do this indoors where it's air conditioned. At other times I go to the mall and do several loops there as well.

    The weight is slowly coming off and I am doing well. Things have finally settled down 14 months after hubby's passing. I still have several things to do, but nothing like it was this past year.

    I have to go now but trust that you are doing well.

    Take care! emoticon emoticon

    I've felt the same way -- overwhelmed with all that's happening in my life, with barely any wiggle room. Things like SP and Facebook can be real time-suckers and sometimes you just have to step back a bit.

    That said, I hope your hiatus isn't too long. You'll be missed. Enjoy your "me-time!"

    Totally understand. Sparking takes up a great deal of time.

    We are here when you return.
