My daughter received an Xbox from her dad for Christmas this year. We've purchased the Kinect for it, which allows you to play certain games without a controller. The camera tracks your body's movements. Is there anyone out there that has... Read more

Friday, November 14, 2014      4 comments

Uhhh. So yeah, this is new. I am trying to comment on someone's blog and the site won't allow me to and keeps asking me to remove any cursing. I haven't curse and I, for the life of me, can't figure out what's wrong or what word might be prom... Read more

Well, today is the first day of my classes. I finally received the syllabus for one of them and it looks completely do-able. Not too bad. Just have to wait and see how the other one shapes up. I had a rough start to the morning which has... Read more

Since Thanksgiving, I can term the last month or so as nothing less than self abuse with the amount and quality of food I've eaten. I've gained back some weight, but so what. I'm back on track again and eager to see how this year pans out for ... Read more

So I haven’t blogged in what feels like forever! Things have been nutty…or at least it feels as though it’s been nutty. When I try to think about what actually has been going on, it seems like most of the crazy has been in my mind. Firs... Read more

I am taking a small break from Spark. I have a bad situation going on with some family members so won't be around for maybe a week or two. Don't worry, I'll be back! Just want to let people know so they don't think the worst! Thanks for all t... Read more
Unexpected drop in weight

Finally, after two months of dealing with leg pain, a doctors visit and an MRI, the diagnosis is in. Apparently I have a "stress reaction" that luckily has not evolved into a fracture. This was explained to me as a fluid overload in my tibia. ... Read more
