So glad you made it back. Keep on working at it. You can do this. You are both worth it and you know it is worth the effort.

I am back Sparking after a three or four year absence. I think I will have more advantages now, than last time.
My Sweetie and I are recovering from a major setback in finances. Her income was reduced by a third for five years (I call it create financing by the Veterans Administration, but I won't get on my soapbox now.) Last time I was here, some might recall that we were working on our roof. We can now resume construction. We also plan on erecting a wind powered electric generator and next month, we can mount better solar panels on our roof.
Meanwhile, we can set up a small propane-fired refrigerator so that we can keep fresh fruits and vegetables for snacking and healthy meals. We have already weaned ourselves from Ramen, which was our staple for several years.
I am now eating my recommended calorie limit. I just need to make healthier choices. A working kitchen will help us eliinate our dependence on pre-packaged food. Oh, part of our kitchen will be a greenhouse!
The weather is getting warmer, and we have been choosing Spark recipes which we can adapt for cooking on the.grill.
We should finish the kitchen before the year is out and get some propane fired appliances,too.
We will finish insulating the den this weekend and move our exercise bikes in there. I hope recumbent biking ill be easier on my joints than walking in the desert.
We bought a new Memory Foam mattress on New Year's Day 2016. I have been sleeping much better. I still get migraines once or twice a week, but my doc has prescribed meds that knock them out even once the have started. My stomach is happier because I am not eating so many NSAIDS.
And yes, I have health care. It took four years for the VA to provide it after our marriage in 2010. I am now her legal dependent and receive health care at a 20% cost to us. What a blessing!
Life has been tough, but we are tougher. I am looking forward to this journey to a trimmer, healthier me.
