OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

OCTOBER 2014

Sometimes I feel like i am on a Roller Coaster - life seems to be settling down and then there is another sharp drop.

Last year i lost my oldest son to Cancer - and now i have learned that my sister has cancer - and may be in the later stages. She has known since January, but has just let me know. She lives in Medford - so it is not easy for me to visit - but will see how it goes.

I have a time tracking my diet and my activities - but have learned that I do so much better when i take the time to. The two things i have the most struggle with are drinking enough water and getting to the club where i have a membership. And that i pay for each month!! I am continually resolving to do better and do for a while and then just get distracted by other things.

Not going to set any goals for the rest of this month - am just going to post what i do each day and see where i end up.

Hi Barb,
Been offline for a few days but hopefully l'm back on permanently.
I've had to change suppliers so everything should be ok now.

Hope you have a good trip down to see your sister and she's doing well, you'll enjoy your time with her.
Wishing you a safe journey, take care, you're in my thoughts. emoticon

Good morning Barb,
So sorry to hear about your sister, I'm thinking of you all emoticon

I love your background page, so cheerful, and your new profile picture too, you're looking good and Ruby looks a wonderful walking companion.

I'm still having problems with my internet connection, might have to change suppliers as the router just won't connect...always something!!

Have a good day emoticon

Hi Barb, hope you're well, I've had router trouble and been offline for over a week, sure have missed it!
Seems to be working fine now even though the router is unplugged from the computer...don't understand that but will make on whilst l can!

Loads of emails etc to catch up on but logged into Spark first, gotta get my priorities right...lol...
Have a wonderful day, will talk more soon x

Barb, Thanks for stopping by and for your comment on the photo of my crocheted doily. Yes, I crocheted it, I've been crocheting for 45 years. The doily is about 26 inches across and took me forever to do. I hope to enter it in the county fair next summer. I noticed on your page that you meet with other knitters several times a week, that sounds like a lot of fun. I'm part of a knitting/crocheting group, but it's just monthly. Thanks again for stopping by. I'm adding you as a friend, hope you don't mind! Karen
