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!

HI Beth sorry it is only a cataract surgery but since he has Glaucoma in the eyes and one eye macular has completely gone. The Dr thinks he will have better vision till the other macular goes. Alas then DH will be legally BLIND.

THAT WAS MY REASON TO DO THE BACK YARD. I THOUGHT THE BOYS COULDS HELP BUT I HAD TO DO IT ALONE. I AM STRONG BUT I knew I wanted it done this year and before winter. I want the pathways to be smoother to get the snow blower over.
I hope all is well with you and I hope you are trying to track and walk. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Oh my sweet friend! I'm SO glad my words sparked a little comfort for you. It's interesting that I began it in anger and resentment and ended up feeling love stir in my heart.

Now ... to find a nursing home with a mama wannabe. LOL there is joy after the tears.

a thousand hugs to you.
