Welcome to my Spark home

Welcome to my Spark page. I am 63 years old and a retired speciaI education teacher (non categorical preschool).
My husband and I have a 3 year old rescue beagle named Buster. He is a bundle of energy and makes us laugh. He has eerily similar traits that we saw in our last 2 rescue beagles. He's very sweet and lots of fun for us.
Our daughter, husband and her 3 children (my adorable grandchildren) live about 25 minutes from us. They also have an old rescue beagle. I am so ...

Our son is married to a great woman. They have his rescue beagle (see a pattern in our family?) and her two cats. They live about 10 minutes from us but are looking for a larger place! Hopefully, they won't move too far!
I joined Spark in December 2009 and, like everyone, life has thrown me some curves as well as blessed me in many ways! Although I struggle with consistency, my main struggle seems to always be with exercise. It seems I do fine for awhile and then I get off track. I always go back to the basics but it does get discouraging.
I'm trying to focus on being a healthy me with the energy to have fun with my family!

Oh my gosh Beth, YES!! I feel like I have "passed" a certain point and that it's my age and aches and energy that I just can't overcome this time around. I hope that's not true for either of us, we have a lot of living to do. I used to love Jazzercise too! There isn't one where I moved to but I think you would have a blast. It doesn't take long to keep up and I remember my first weeks kinda hanging in the back and just moving. That place is full of fun!

Beth, you should find them in chrono order if you scroll all the way down, into the dark-grey background area, and click on Blog Archive.

Also, at this point, you'll see Morticia's counterpoints below most blogs, in the comments. They're always a hoot!

You're so sweet Beth. I felt a bit whiney in the blog so I deleted it emoticon Struggling on but on we go!

Awww. Thank you for the bloglove.

I'm wearing my boots today - 1 pound from goal but by golly - I've waited long enough!

Hi Beth, thanks for asking about my job hunt! I've been very busy with interviews on my days off so have had little time to spark. Fortunately I think it will be paying off soon...I'm expecting to get at least one job offer this week and maybe two. If not, I have another couple of interviews scheduled for Wednesday and I'm gaining confidence with every interview. I've never been great at interviewing...much better at working! But I've learned some great tips that have really amped up my interview game and I know something great will come along soon.

My boss will be hiring my replacement soon, possibly this week, and will give me a full 30 days notice, so I'm not terribly worried. If I don't find a permanent job by then the temp agencies can keep me busy with 12 week contracts.

I really appreciate your support and friendship Beth! I hope you are over that cold!
