They are still not sure what is wrong with Maggie -- her electrolytes are a little off, but no cancer (I've seen way too many loved ones -- people and pets -- die of cancer). So that's really good. They are having me give her prilosec(!) f... Read more
Could use some prayers
Thursday, October 31, 2013      6 comments

I don't post A LOT of personal stuff -- it's just not me -- and if this request is just not YOU, that's okay I understand. I could use some loving thoughts and prayers for my dog. She's only 7 but has lost a lot of weight and won't eat. W... Read more

Words to remember-- Martha Beck: "When we force ourselves to connect against our heart's desires, we create false, resentful relationships; when we disconnect from the people who deplete us, we set them free to find their tribes while... Read more
Empowerment -- a great quote
Thursday, October 04, 2012      4 comments

Like this a lot: SparkPeople's Coach Tanya says: Say goodbye to feeling guilty after eating emotionally. Say hello to feelings of empowerment that come from making conscience decisions about what and when you eat. ... Read more

I'm home, I'm home, I'm home!! After spending the last seven days on mandatory evacuation we got to drive in last night, all kids, cats, dogs -- and we're fine. My heart goes out to anyone who has lost lives or homes in wildfire or any o... Read more

Sounds like the start of a joke doesn't it? And no, I wasn't drinking. But I fell off an icy slope, tumbled down a hill and hit a tree. And the dog landed on top of me! I was thankful for the tree or I would have gone a lot farther. And I'm... Read more

Apparently I'm a spark-nerd -- I just realized I really look forward to reading the Daily Spark. Not everything applies to me, but it's always so POSITIVE. And really, I like feeling that I belong to something. ... Read more
