Blogging Once Again

Saturday, February 22, 2014

It has been quite a while since I have written a blog. Today I just wanted to say thank you to those of the Spark Community who have continued to reach out to me in various ways despite my lack of time to participate the way I once did. Grad school has been overwhelming and time consuming. There have been some days where I haven't even logged in.

Today I decided to sleep until I was done. The result was amazing. I feel well rested, a feeling that I haven't had very often since starting grad school. I have opened the blinds and the window shades and I am letting as much sun shine into the house as possible. I am even hoping to get outside to get some fresh air and a walk today. The snow is melting and the temperature is supposed to reach 50 degrees, so I had better take advantage of it because there is more snow on the way by Wednesday.

I have one goal for today and that goal is to take care of me. If I can finish the day with that one thing accomplished it will have been a good day. I hope that you have a wonderful weekend!

    Sounds awesome! Keep taking care of you, sometimes sleep is the ticket! I also am not as active as I sometimes would like to be here at Spark but that is just the way life is. We are busy gals. One thing for sure, I always come back. My Spark Friends are always in the back of my mind.

Wednesday, February 05, 2014

It was a wet and heavy snow. I had to take a couple of breaks just to catch my breath, but I got my fitness minutes in for the day.

    Good for you! I love shoveling but on this snow day, I stayed in and let others do the job. I have been sick and just couldn't get out there and put in that effort. Shoveling is hard work. Now you can go sledding! Woohoo!

Challenges and Changes

Saturday, February 01, 2014

I spent about an hour and a half on the phone with my mom today trying to help her to reset her password on her present e-mail account and then set up a new e-mail account that she can use to replace her present e-mail account. We also went through her address book and tried to contact everyone that she needed to inform that she is using a new e-mail account instead of the old one.

I am amazed by the challenges that we face as the technology of the younger generation seems to be overtaking and overwhelming members of the previous generation. Sometimes it makes me really angry. I wish that there were something available to members of the previous generations that would help them to learn the new technologies and utilize them with ease if they chose to do so.

I am grateful for the assistance that I have received from members of the younger generations. Don't know where I would be without them.

    It's a struggle keeping up with technology yourself and trying to guide a parent who never had to use it. I empathize with you. It sounds like you prevailed, though. Thank you. emoticon

    So many times I have had to ask my sons to work me through some weird techno glitch. It is so hard to keep n top of everything. So glad you could help your mom navigate the process.

    I agree my kids teach me all I know about technology but it would be nice to learn it somewhere also . great job with helping your mom way to go,

Putting on My Snow Gear & Getting Ready to Go Outside and Shovel

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

One good thing about the snow, I get my exercise in without any bother. I love the snow. Shoveling snow may just very well be my favorite form of winter exercise. I feel like I am accomplishing something and I am getting my exercise.

    I used to love shoveling snow also, before arthritis took over my body. I used to make paths for the dogs to run around the back yard and my little jack russell of day's past used to love them. Just being out in the fresh air makes me happy.

Happy shoveling to you!
