Hello Spark Friends!

So my last page title and introduction text were very negative and depressing. A fellow sparker (LIVINMYDREAMS - thank you) urged me to be positive and list good things that will come as a result of my efforts. I'm going to do just that. Negativity breeds more negativity. I need a place I can come to that is positive and motivating...even through the rough times.

So here is my list of positive things that will come from my efforts:

Other Information:
I love rock music, some heavy metal and can listen to anything other than country (sorry).

My favorite movie is Somewhere in Time with Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymore.

I love to read and one of my favorite quotes is from John Lennon "Life is what happens while you are busy making other plans".

Oh and "Actions speak louder than words."

Ugh! Glad you figured out the problem! I don't know of much you can do but grit your teeth and get through it, although making sure to get enough water and exercise seems to help a little. Enjoy Myrtle Beach, aka Pittsburgh-by-the-shore, lol!

As to the weddings - fill up on fat before you go - it'll help with both the cookie table AND and alcohol!
