Welcome to my Spark page. I am 64 years old and a retired speciaI education teacher (non categorical preschool). My husband and I have a 4 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.

Welcome to my Spark page. I am 64 years old and a retired speciaI education teacher (non categorical preschool). My husband and I have a 4 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 fortunate to see them a lot. They are my sunshine!! 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 25 minutes from us also (in the opposite direction!) 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've been married to my wonderful husband for 42 years. We have 2 grown children. Our daughter is married with 3 children. I feel so blessed to have them close and spend lots of time with them. Our son and his wife are recently married and right now live about 10 minutes from us.I taught preschool special education for 23 years and retired about 5 years ago. Loving retirement and am always busy!
I love to read!!! I belong to PaperbackSwap and love having access to so many books. We are moving our pontoon to Smith Mountain Lake and hope to spend some weekends and at least one week each summer down there. We are able to spend lots of time with our kids and grandkids. I love spending time with my family!
She is stronger and more active - eating better all the time. I hope she makes it.
I got all my raised beds cleaned out and ready to add more dirt, some plants to certain areas, and mulch. I will have to buy all of that soon. Plus some veggie plants. Hubby doesn't want to bother with a garden but I can't imagine not having anything.
Blocker finally came out on her own last night and sat on the shelf so I got to see her. She is not eating as much as she normally does but she is hungry and is eating. Her eye is better now. Hopefully she can make it. Hubby is giving up sleep to help her. He always does that and I can't stop him. He doesn't want to lose any more pets.
I have not seen her outside of her sleeping quarters as she is asleep in her house or bath all the time and we don't want to stress her out. She is closer to Benny than she is to me. She will come out to be syringe feed for Benny when he calls her. He says her eye is swollen shut some and he is going to try to fix it. I usually do that for her but it will be better to let him handle it. He says she is breathing better. She is fairly worn out right now and it's better for me to keep a low profile and for him to only arouse her to eat. She did have some stools I cleaned up and she ate a small treat for Benny. He says she considered coming out to see him but didn't feel up to it. She needs to rest.
