Spark Friends
Thursday, December 31, 2020      14 comments

Since joining SP in 2011, I’ve seen Spark Friends come and go. Some deleted me; I’ve deleted others because they didn’t have the time or the inclination to answer my comments or questions. I’m pretty demanding of my friends, I guess... because... Read more

I've gained 5 lbs. since mid-August; I honestly think I really gained them in the last 3 weeks, since the wedding. We worked really hard getting everything ready, and were both tired when the wedding was over. I didn't walk; I didn't do ot... Read more
