With too much time away from Sparking, eating healthy and regular exercise, I am making a commitment to getting back on right track. After a scare with high blood pressure, and not wanting to continue on prescribed medicine, Mike researched... Read more

My last blog was pretty depressing. I was feeling down in the dumps, and needed to get it out of my system. Thank you to all for the wonderfully supportive comments. The past year has been so busy. A year ago this week, Mike and I move... Read more
How do I get back up on the track and learn to like myself?
Wednesday, November 15, 2017      10 comments

I wish I could figure out why I can’t seem to get back on track with healthy eating and exercise. Life, overall is very good right now. I am going on five years with a man who loves me for me; and for the first time in my life, my relation... Read more
My Revelation
Friday, February 19, 2016      15 comments

Upon my return to Spark, I reached out to many friends and came to a revelation. Spark is such a big part of the happiness I have found, and yet I somehow let spark slip away. I joined Spark in May 2009, a time when I was at my lowest point bo... Read more

I knew it had been a long time since I last blogged, but I really didn’t think it has been almost six weeks. Where did those six weeks go? The second week of May was an eventful one – my oldest son graduated from college that Friday. ... Read more

Hello fellow Sparkers! It has been a long time since I have written anything – I believe the longest absence since joining May 26, 2009. Life and work are going very well, but the healthy lifestyle not so much. Mike and I are still v... Read more

Two months since my last blog
Thursday, January 08, 2015      6 comments

I don’t think I have gone this long without blogging since joining SP back in May 2009. I could blame it on the holidays, but mine were actually pretty quiet this year. I could blame it on work, but with the hiring of an Administration Assistant... Read more

My Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
Tuesday, October 21, 2014      8 comments

No, it’s not a comedy like the Alexander movie that is currently showing. Sunday was one of my worst days in a very long time. It started out okay – coffee and conversation with Mike, a little house cleaning and laundry. In the early a... Read more
Trying to enjoy fall while dealing with Mom’s anxiety
Tuesday, September 30, 2014      9 comments

Fall is my favorite time of the year – leaves changing colors, cooler temps and no mosquitoes. I can sit on the deck in the morning, enjoying a cup of coffee or in the evening with a glass of wine or water and my favorite guys. The air smells am... Read more
