Here's what's going on ...
Saturday, October 04, 2014
I see that it has been about 2 years since my last blog post so I'm a little late. LOL
I took a break from being active on here, just popping on now and again to look up some health info, then I got a harsh reality check about how out-of-shape I really am.
Then, my Sparkfriend Vicki
told me about a challenge team and got me and invitation and it sounded like the kind of accountability that I needed so I got excited about it right away,
making me ready to come back on here and be active. I was making some good changes in my life when out of nowhere, I got thrown a curveball.
The apartment next door to mine caught on fire and 6 apartment units, including mine, were declared uninhabitable so we had to leave. No one was hurt in the fire and most of us only had smoke damage to our belongings; also, the apartment complex that I live in required all residents to have renters insurance, so everyone at least had that to fall back on. Some of us were more devastated by the fire than others, but all in all, there is so much to be thankful for. (As a little aside about some being more devastated than others, you just never know what people are going through in life. What seems like a little bump in the road could be the last straw for someone who was just barely hanging on.) I am so blessed to have my family, who has been my rock through this and so many other hurdles in my life. (My mom is on SparkPeople too; she's Idletyme.)
I wanted to come on here and let people know why I'm not posting things and replying to everyone who reaches out to me. My life is kind of on hold for a couple more weeks and then, hopefully, I will move into my new apartment and get back to a routine. I still come on here a couple of times a week to log my info for my challenge team, but I'm not doing much else for now. Soon I will be active on here again.
I hope everyone is having a good start to October. I'm loving the cool weather we just got, here in Texas. I will talk to everyone again soon.
Bye for now!!!
