Blessings in Fluff

never thought I would be a homemaker, but with various medical issues I am blessed with, it hasn't really been an optional thing. I do get out to volunteer several times a week at a school helping do data entry for their library and then the rest of my weekdays are taken by appointments.

I live in Washington State, USA with a significant other, my dog, and a large collection of stuffed animals.

My Program:
I'm slowly implementing the ideas that came to me as inspiration for my SuuuuperGoals blog post.

Area 1: Devotions
Area 2: Appearance
Area 3: Nutrition and Fitness
Area 4: Housekeeping
Area 5: Reading and Vocabulary building

They were in a different order in the post, but they've seemed to reprioritize themselves recently and I'm not complaining.

Personal Information:
I live in Auburn, WA. Feel free to friend, SparkMail, comment or send me notes! I turn 39 on April 22nd and I've been living with my man of choice for about 10 years this April/May!

I'm still trying to get him on SparkPeople, but he says it reminds him too much of facebook. Still I haven't given up hope.

~~~~~Why Complicate Life?~~~~~

Missing somebody? .....Call
Wanna meet up? .....Invite
Wanna be understood? .....Explain
Have questions? .....Ask
Don't like something? ....Say it
Like something? ....State it
Want something? ....Ask for it
Love someone? .....Tell it

We have just one life...
Keep it simple.

So, Enjoy Yours...Each & Every Day!!!

~~~~Creativity Takes No Excuses~~~~

If it's important enough, YOU'LL TAKE
TIME FOR IT.

If you don't know where to start,
START ANYWHERE.

If you feel stuck, ASK SOMEONE TO
HELP YOU OUT.

If you're tired, TAKE A TIMED BREAK.

If you don't know how to do it, TRY
DOING WHAT YOU CAN.

If you believe that you can do it,
YOU WILL.

~~~~~~Happy Wednesday~~~~~~
Love all, trust a few, do
Wrong to none.
(William Shakespeare)
Sending you Lots & Lots of (((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))

Sometimes the strongest
women are the ones who
love beyond all faults,
cry behind closed doors,
and fights battles that
nobody knows about.

Are you a strong woman?

Have a fun-filled, fabulous, fantastic, faithful, and friendly Friday!!

emoticon Hoping you choose to live your life with the following emoticon

I Choose....
to live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not compete;
I choose self esteem, not pity.
I choose to listen to my
inner voice,
not the random
opinion of others.

Have a Spectacular Sunday!!
Lots of ((((((((HUGS)))))))))) & Smiles
