I am loving every minute I'm here at Spark People. I retired from teaching elementary in 1997. I was a pet sitter for nine years and now I am fully retired. We'll see how long that lasts. I have been struggling with weight since I left teaching. I gained 50 pounds the first year. I sing in two choirs and dabble in crafts. I love musicals and movies, love to swim and walk and I spend a lot of time with family. Like Snoopy I feel that " life is just too short not to live it up a bit."

Member Since: 8/1/2006

Fitness Minutes: 3,483

My Goals:
To enjoy life and be able to continue in the activities I love to do {singing,& travel)

To get back to a healthy size. To avoid getting type 2 diabetes, because it is in my family.

My Program:
I watch my fat and sugar intake. I try to eat a balanced, healthy diet. I swim and walk for exercise.
I do best when exercise is presented as a game.
I love to be helpful and enjoy visiting seniors that live alone.
I play Euchre with a wonderful group of friends every Mon. We take turns hosting. I also play every other Friday at my church. We have lunch together (each one brings their own) and dessert, tea & coffee are provided.
Every Friday I go to "Pizza Club" so called because we meet at a pizza restaurant. There are from 4 to 35 there each week. Love it, love it, love it. This is the group I usually go on my cruises with. We're planning one for the fall to the Mediterranean

Personal Information:
Retired teacher, cum pet sitter who loves to sing and perform in musical theatre,

I am involved in a craft group for seniors and often teach the class myself.

I love movies - especially sentimental sop and children's movies'
I love to tell jokes - and I collect trivia-I'm a spermologist from way back.
I have a wonderful circle of friends. They come from all walks of life. I love to keep informed of what is going on but I hate bad news. I feel we don't have enough "feel good" stuff in our lives.

Other Information:
I used to love being in community theatre and when I ws unable to perform I moved backstage but now that's all over. I do consult from time to time because I'm able to come up with some good ideas for props, sets and costumes but now I am mostly just in the audience

I come from a huge family (13th of 14) of which we are 4 survivors. My siblings are my best friends. I can't afford to lose any more.

    Hi, how are you doing? Saw your message but couldn't come on. They asked me to register again and I was in the middle of something. I'll have to figure that out.

    See you around the posts, maybe?

    Hi Joan
    So nice to hear from you. I often thought about you. Yes I do keep in touch with Nance but by email. I went to see her 2 years ago and had a great time. While there I met Lola, Lainie, and Dee. We had a lunch together in a beautiful little teahouse.
    Did you know Shirley Crowley? We also keep in touch through SKYPE. I visited her, too in St. Louis
    My little kitties have gotten tall and frisky. Felix is my entertainment and Oscar is my love. I have gotten involved in making greeting cards. Now I even teach workshops in it...great therapeutic exercise.
    Let's keep in touch Cloey

    Hi Cloey. I got a message that you had added me as a friend, Thanks! It's been a long time since we conversed and I'm still stuck in a rut , but still here at spark. Do you still belong to the one group where we met so long ago? Do you still hear from Nance and the others that were there? Hope you are enjoying retirement with your kitties. Since my DH died almost 2 years ago, I have found myself very busy. I now have more time to do many things I couldn't before. This is nice, but it is somewhat lonely. My 2 cats do keep me company.
    Take Care.

    Good luck on your journey, Cloey

    Hi Cloey, How are you doing? We miss your posts. You are beautiful in your Anne of Green Gables outfit.
    I am still trying to loose some #. But not being very serious or I should say faithful.
    I just wanted to say hi and hope you are doing well. Marlene
