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!

i think it's wonderful that you are going to get to see the places you dreamed of seeing. You will have t take lots of pictures!

I always dreamed of going to Hawaii or Bora Bora, Tahiti but I would settle for seeing the continental U.S. I don't care much about big cities but I would love to see the National Parks and Monuments, with the exception of caves. I don't do those.

I had to go to the doctor - fat as a tick and none too healthy and I got a 2 new meds which I am afraid to take after reading the side effects. LOL.

Thanks for the blog love on my post about being Discombobulated. It's true - new clothes ARE fun. and after letting those conflicts come to the surface, I'm okay with all that indulgence. LOL

how do I get back in the car???? Well, it helps when I'm dressed for a 50 degree day with no coat and it's still only 28 and the car is nice and warm, ha ha. But some days it's very hard to get in that car and keep heading in the right direction. emoticon

Wow! A trip to London! That would be worth getting in shape for. I seem to do okay exercising inside but not on the hills outside. They are killers again. And the doctor said I can't go alone any more so that makes it hard. Benny and I went for 2 walks today but they were less than what we used to do and slower.

Thank you, Beth. I deleted a lot of the blog but surely you know how helpful I find your support. Just walking that black dog from one end of town to the other is enough to wear us all down a little.

Getting by with a little help, etc.
