Hi everyone my internet is gonna be down another week since my provider didn't come out yesterday and fix my problem. So I'll be spotty here sorry, and to add to my frustration I won blue man group tixs from the radio and they lost them!

Anywho enough complaining does anybody know how to hide certain blog entries? I don't want to delete them just block them I guess. If you could send me a sp mail if you know that would be super!

Well I have to get off I'll try stopping by later this week but I'm gonna keep up my workouts.

Good to hear Ray is resting at home with his guardian angels to watch over him. Isn't it funny how our pets can sense when something isn't quite right? Get some rest Debbie, praying for a full recovery for Ray as well as rest for yourself.

Well I got quite a jolt when I logged into my sparkmail ---discovered I was SP MOD ---am I dreaming, really??? DIdn't figure I was SPMOD material with the struggles I've been having with weight ---sure wish the weight would stop being so stubborn! LOL.

Have a good day.

Kathy and Donna, thank you both for the prayers and good thoughts. I admit I am wore out. This is a week I would rather not relive. Ray is home an right now asleep on the love sleep cuddled up with Katie and Silk. They haven't left his side since he got home.

Well I just got the call from the pharmacy and they will be special delivering Ray's antibiotic med here in about 20 minutes.

Everone have a great week! I will be back tomorrow!

Oh my, we would have thought a nail could cause such an infection, glad to hear he's improving.I know you will be glad to have him home again soon. Keeping the prayer wheel turning. Take care of yourself as well, many times as we are caring for our loved ones,it's so easy to overlook our own needs.
Have a good week.

Hello everyone!

Donna, Ray was hospitalized last Tuesday with a bone infection, a complication of getting the rusty nail in his foot a week ago last Friday. They have had him on iv antibiotics for a week now. They will continue the iv antibiotics for another 4 to 6 weeks. They are letting him come home tomorrow with limitations to physical activity. iI was there this morning when they changed his dressing and the wound is looking better almost every day. Glad you had a good weekend! Keeping you and your DH in my thoughts and prayers.

HUGS

Debbie --did I miss something--it Ray ok, hope nothing too serious. Sending good thoughts & prayers.

We are having a great weekend -1st laid back one in a while. We actually were able to sleep in a bit this morning. Then Kenny helped me get the housework chores done, afterwards we went to the NC WIldlife game reserve to do some scouting for deer. We did see one, but some dogs running thru the woods spooked him before Kenny could get close enough. That was a big fella, would made lots of delicious meals this winter. Oh well, at least I got in my walking, it was a beautiful day,lots of sunshine.

Have a good day.

Hello everyone! Talomg tje day off to get housework and laundry done. Ray is going to be in the hospital till Monday or Tuesday. I was a real tired last night. I managed to knock my tv off the cable comehow. Fortunately a good friend who is tech savvy came by today to see if I needed anything an fixed the problem in a few minutes. My OSU Cowboys are ranked #4 for the first time. I am so proud. I doubt they will play for the National Championship! This is a great first though!

Donna, I will keep you and your DH in my thoughts and prayers! May the test come out clear!

Debbie, if the person you are talking about hasn't been on here before chances are they won't find you here. I would go for it.

Sharon, hope you are having a great day.

Everyone have a great weekend!

Hi ladies, can't believe it's been a week since I've popped in, boy does life ever stay busy. Well the labs weren't as good as I was hoping. At least my Triglycerides did improve, but are still elevated. Of course my A1c is still 7.8, she's not happy about that. So I know when I have my visit next week, she will insist on insulin. In addition, I got a letter from my GYN yesterday, my pap came back abnormal so I have to have Colposcopy --please keep me in your prayers concerning this, also my DH has to have a skin cancer removed from his face next month, praying they get all the cancer cells.

Have a good week to all.

Debbie it got super cold here too, ohhhh I guess I better learn how to start a fire LOL!

My internet is down at home emoticon until Monday but I figured I'd swing by to just give ya'll a heads up and a quick hi! I'm thinking about taking my page off private and making it public again but I'm not sure if that's a smart move. I haven't been bothered by said individual and I honestly don't think they would bother coming here and making a page just to see what I'm up to. I just feel like I'm holding myself back from wonderful people all because of one person. Any advice on this matter?

Good morning everyone! It decided to turn cold last night! It was in the 49's this morning when I took Katie out for her walk. Cable guys have been working all morning to replace the main caable that the maintenance men cut yesterday. They were trying to dig up a sewer line at tge time.

Donna, I am keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Hopefully there is away to way to control the hot flashes and sweats. Let us know how it goes!

Sharon, sounds like you are definetly getting lots of walking in. Jatue abd U gave been getting in about 3 miles a day in.

Catch you all later!

I don't think my meds are the problem as I've been taking the same combination of meds for over 3 years now. However, I do think the hot flashes & sweats have connection with my sugar. When the flashes/sweats are at their peak, I also notice my sugar level is higher. I go tomorrow to have my labwork done again to see how my A1c has changed any since July, praying for some improvement as I don't want to go on insulin.

Have been enjoying my long weekend, I took Friday &Monday off to stuff for ME. Well my initial goal of fall cleaning the house is probably not going to happen. I did manage to get the spare bedroom done, maybe I can get another room done tomorrow after my dr visit. I can surely tell I'm getting older as I've been having major back & hip pain from climbing the ladder & bending/squatting while cleaning the spare bedroom. I recall the times I could do the entire house in one day ---not anymore.

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone has had a good week so far. Over the Thursday and Friday day vision and hearing clinic we ran 900 kids through. I walked all over the three schools all day today. It is a mile from the Jr. High to the upper Elementary. So I figured that I walked a total of 8 miles taking kids to and from each station. I also dranked 68 oz of water all day. This next week we have a two day Flu shot clinic. So I will probably will be walking another 8 miles again on both days. I guess I don't need to go to the fitness center if I keep it up. Yesterday my son's bowling took 3 out of 4 games away from the teens.

I hope everyone has a good Sunday with whatever you do.

Sharon

Good evening!
I haven't been here in a few weeks - just rejoined the team yesterday. I was here previously under the username JAKEANDNELLIE, but I closed down that account. I'm working hard to reignite my Spark and it's slow going. Things are looking up after last week's eye surgery and I'll soon be able to get back into an exercise routine. I did walk today - 3.2 miles and it was chilly and windy!

Hello everyone! Well I did it again! This week has been a total loss for us. We were supposed to go to the Homecoming parade and game for our greant niece today. Then I got sick on Tuesday with brochitis. So Ray was going to go by himself to support her. He took Katie out this morning for a walk and stepped on a rusty roofing nail. So after 4 hours of in the ER with him he missed out on the parade an game. The good news is that at 7pm this evening we got the call from our niece (Darlene) telling us that Shyann had actually been made Homecoming Queen during halftime during the football game. I have been told that it is all on video so we will get to see it later.

Thanks to the trip to VA hospital today I got my exercise in. There was no parking in the ER parking today. So we had to park in what we like to call the North 40. Farthest part of the parking lot from the door. they sometimes run shuttles but not today.

I am going to keep close to home for the next week and try to kick this bronchitis. Hopefully I will be in here a little more often and I can keep caught up.

Donna, definitely check your meds for causing sweats. I would google them, not just look at the list they give you because they are incomplete. My niece and I both went on cymbalta about the same time and both of us got sweats ... I had HORRIBLE night sweats and not just when sleeping :) Once I stopped they went away. I had told my doc and she said perimenopause (I'm 45). I don't know what excuse my 36yo niece got from her doc.

Good morning team, haven't been on spark as much the past couple of days due to log in issues --it was making me log into every page!!! So I had to limit my time, which of course I don't seem to have much off. Looks like whatever the issue was is now fixed.

I'm on vacation for the new few days, go back to work on Tuesday. The roofers are surely making a lot of racket this morning, they were on our roof before 730 so no sleeping in on my day off! Gonna head into gown & pay some bills & pick up some things needed that I've been putting off due to time constraints.

Tomorrow I plan on starting my Christmas shopping, DH & I will go out for breakfast first & then hitting the mall.

Have a good weekend.

Hi guys,
I have been busy this week with family in from Arizona and my having a sleep over. Then today and tomorrow I am schedule to work at the school. We are doing vision and hearing testing this week. Next week we have a mass clinic for the flu shots going on all week. Maybe after all of this things will get back to normal and I can go back to working out 2 hours per day. I have lost 2 more pounds this week. This makes only 40 pounds til I hit my goal weight. I also completed the water intake of 96 oz. I hope everyone has a good day with whatever you do. Make it count.

Hi everyone. I've been reading what you all are doing and you are busy. I went to Curves 3 times last week and tomorrow will be my third time this week. A friend and I are going to the movies tomorrow afternoon to see "Help" I read the book and it was very good so I hope the movie will be as good. We also want to see Dolphin Tale. Perhaps we can see that in November.

When I went to WW last Monday I found that I had lost 2.2 pounds my first week back to WW and on their Points Plus Program. I was very happy.

Have a great rest of the night and a good day tomorrow.

Kitkat, way to go on the workout & also the healthy eating over the weekend --even small steps make a difference.I know I've been focusing closer to my own health needs, but with busy schedules, it's sometimes difficult to stay on track.

This is a short work week for me --having a much needed extended weekend --Taking Friday & Monday off --Friday will be Fall cleaning at home, to get ready for the upcoming holidays & Monday I'm going for my labwork to see if my A1C has improved so I don't have to go on insulin.

Hello everyone,
Sorry I haven't been around much since I started sparking again. We had a busy weekend with the kids home for the Thanksgiving weekend. We had a very pleasant quiet celebration and made healthy choices:)

Got to the gym today did an hour on the elliptical and some strengthtraining. Not bad a bit slow going initially, after a four day break. Hope this finds everyone well, or mending if they have been under the weather.

Best wishes for a fabulous week:)

Debbie, I use flonase prn for my allergies/sinuses, it really helps. Sometimes if I feel a migraine coming on, I can take the flonase & it reduces the effect of the migraine, crazy how it does that. Good to hear of the vision field improvement!!! emoticon

Speaking of MIA! I am back an sorry it has been almost a week since I poked my head in here. I am finally getting over the sinus infection that has had me down the last 3 days.

Donna, the eye specialist said that my field vision test was has improved from last time. The good news I was looking for! I got a new pair of glasses. I didn't get any sleep night before last Ray insisted I call my pcp see if I could get in to see her. After that appointmnent I came home with some Flonase. She wants me to use that all Fall. She says it is a preventive to the sinus infections. The Flonase is working it is just going to take some time.

Debbie, it is good to see you back. I was just wondering what had happened to you the other day. Happy to have you back!

Angela, how is Thor holding up with his diet. He will eventually adjust.

I will try to get back here later! Probably tomorrow!

Well hello everyone! I have been gone so long it feels kinda strange dropping in and just posting. But I refuse to sit back and watch life go by without joining in, I mean that's why I joined this team so long ago.

My weekend has been totally uneventful and thats awesome because I have been go go go for the past few weeks. Last week I was off kilter and even though that was horrible I think it made a lot more things clear for me. Today it's kinda chilly and I'm contemplating on a hike or just hanging out with my girls since I'm tight on gas and my saturn sucks gas like a suburban.

I hope everyone has a wonderful day I'll try my best to be more active here and ask for help when needed instead of running the other direction.

THis has been a really awesome weekend --it's the first one in about a month that we didn't have other obligations that kept us running around. Yesterday, we went up to the NC Wildlife Reserve near Kenny's mom's house & rode thru there for about 1 hr, hoping to see some wild animals to photograph, only things we saw were some various types of birds & butterflies. Then stopped by his mom's for a LUPPER (late lunch, early supper) & his sister came into town while we were there so we had a nice little visit with her before heading home. We had planned to have meal out at a restaurant this weekend, haven't done that lately but we got home so late we decided to go out after church, so now we are heading to OUTBACK, can't wait to enjoy with of their delish salads. Then later we will head back to church for our evening service.

emoticon Hello all!! What another beautiful day here in Wisconsin!! Sounds like it is going to stay until middle of week. I just love it. Really helps with getting the outside work done. Of course, I have to do the work, not just goof off. I tend to want to go for walks, or ride my bike, or just do something/anything outside besides work. This time I am not going to put it off, get it done, then I will be able to enjoy things whatever the weather brings. Not working one minute of group home overtime this weekend, that is the only for sure thing I have planned. They can jump off a bridge! emoticon The company, not the residents. Just didn't want anybody to get the wrong idea. LOL Hope this is a great weekend for everybody.

Debbie, you have a big week it seems. Hope you get a good report from your doctor, sending Hugs & Prayers your way. That's awesome about your niece, what a special milestone in her life, hope you are able to join in some of the festivities

Angelbeliever, actually one of my coworkers had an extra toaster oven that she donated for us to use at the office. Basically, we put on a lit bit of the squeeze margarine, then 2 slices of thin sliced deli ham, then lay the provolone cheese slice on top of the ham. We then put it in the toaster oven til the cheese is bubbly & starting to turn golden brown. It's so yummy & such an easy breakfast to prepare, can even eat it on the run.

Got a bit of a headache starting, hope it doesn't linger. DH & I are heading to the wildlife gameland where we usually hunt to try out the 4WD in his new truck --just to make sure it's working properly for when we go hunting in Nov. Then we will stop my his mom's & have a ham sandwich --she's cooking her homecoming meal for her church's service tomorrow.

Well gotta run, hope you all have a great day.

Happy Saturday everyone. It's a beautiful, cool day here in Fl. The sun is shining but it is cloudy at times too. Rain is on it's way for tomorrow and maybe more next week.

That cheese on toast sounds good. Do you melt the cheese on the toast in the micro wave?
My lunch is now slim Thin bread with chicken and cheese and I put it in the micro wave for about 15 seconds and it's nice and warm and the cheese is melted a little.

I went to Curves 3 times this past week. Today I'm going to dry mop our floors. I dusted everything yesterday now to finish up with the mop today. I can't do it all at once any more so I split it up into 2 days.

Time to go eat lunch now!

Hello everyone! Well I am still suffering with my sinuses but they are not as bad as they were yesterday. Monday, I go back to see the neurologist about my eye. I am hoping for some good news there or at least some kind of solution.

Donna, that is great your folks came down to visit during the revival. Have a nice an peaceful weekend this week.

Sharon, I hope you have a nice weekend also. I am hoping that I can kick this sinus trouble this weekend.

Next week is full of all kinds of things for me to do. I have two ALA meetings to attend a Dr's appointment. My great niece was nominated for Home Coming Court at her small town High School this year. She wants us to come to the parade and festivities and of course the football game on Friday night. Since her grand parents don't live in State we will be going to give her some moral support.

Hi everyone,
I spent 90 minutes yesterday at the fitness center working out. Today I spent 2 hours working out. I took my son tonight to his martial arts class. He did make it in the 6th grade pull out chior. I told him I was proud of him. Robert also took the kids jepodary online test last night. We will see if he gets picked for the second round or not. I lost 2 pounds this week. I thought it would be more because of all the time I have put in at the fitness center. I hope everyone has a good day with whatever you do.

Hi ladies, just popping in for a quick moment. We had a great revivial this week. I had a wonderful suprise waiting on me when I walked in the church ---my parents & younger brother were there, they had drove an hour to come visit with us during final revival service. Daddy's walking with a cane, but at least he's able to do that --he looked so much better than from last month when I saw him.

Sharon, I feel for you. After 5 days of moving. My arms, legs, shoulders all still ache a little. They are getting better but I have put off ST for another day or two.

Kat, you sure have had a busy day. Katie and I got our 30 minute walk in this afternoon. She knows the apt complex better than I do.

Had a good day today relaxing after my 2 hour strength training session with a trainer. Sherrie kick butt. I thought I was doing pretty good until she said it is time to increase the weight that you are using. I was doing all the reps without stopping and my muscles were not stressed. After the increase I couldn't hardly do half without stopping to rest. I took my son to his martial arts class tonight and found out that he is testing for his purple belt in November. Robert was pretty pumped. I hope everyone has a good day with whatever you do.

Hello everyone! I am getting ready for my meeting tonight! I thought that I would stop by an see what was going on with everyone!

Andrea, hope your blues go away soon. I hate it when I have days like that especially when I can't determine why.

Donna, maybe you should label your hats? lol Take care of yourself.an give yourself a little ME time from time to time.

Sharon, your son will understand some day, I promise! I do not like mice babies or otherwise. (shudder) One of the reason I have a cat. In my past lived in a house where the mice ruled till I got a cat.

Catch you all later.

HUGS
Debbie

Good morning everyone-

I'm feeling a little down today. Not for any particular reason, just one of those days. Hopefully the weather stays nice so I can go for a nice long run after work. I am really looking forward to it!

I hope everyone has a good Tuesday! xox -Andrea

Kathy, it's wonderful to hear things worked out, they do in God's timing & according to his plan, but we have to trust his direction.

Debbie, I think that's why I feel frazzled so much, I have so many hats to wear, not sure which one I have on at times! LOL!

I spent over 2 hours today at the fitness center working out on all the cardio machines. I had an actively afternoon also. I help in the 4th grade special with reading and math and today was pretty exciting. While we were doing math one of the students said that there is a grasshopper up in the light. I looked up and saw that it was not a grass hopper but was a baby mouse. The teacher asked if I would go look up the janitor to get it out. I did. He came to the class room with a ladder and pulled down the light cover. The mouse fell out and started running around the room. The teacher has two aides and me in the room. She said to all of us get it don't let it get away. I didn't know that baby mice could run so fast. It ran out into the hall and started to go over to the middle school. I told the aide that was helping me that the mouse wants a higher education. We trapped the mouse and the janitor came and stepped on it and put it in the trash. My son is calling us murderers. So now I just want to sit and rest a bit before starting supper. I hope everyone has a good evening with whatever you do.

Kathy, I am glad to hear that you didn't get fired! I have no idea why people want to make trouble for other people.

Donna, I just know how you keep up with all the grandkids, church and your job! I have trouble keeping up with the ALA, SP and my fur kids. Thought now that the move is over I think things will settle down.

I know one thing for sure I really need to keep my goals in sight this month. Put a little more work into my goals.

emoticon emoticon Thanks for the good thoughts and prayers. I still have a job, so now I can keep looking at other employment without worrying. Turns out somebody I thought was a nice person, tried to blame me for something that I didn't do and get me fired!! Thank goodness I was able to get it all straight and save my freaking job!! This person has always acted so nice and friendly, I would never have expected this type of behavior from her. To top it off, I know enough about most of the people I work with to get them all fired!! Why would anybody do that???? Just one of the reasons I like my cats more than so many people. At least your cats are honest about how they are feeling. LOL Now that I have not slept since Saturday, I am going to take a nap. Back to work tomorrow night. YEAH!!!

Happy Monday! As I was sitting here complaining that I had to come to work this morning, I read your post, Kathy, and realized that I am lucky to have a job. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you at this time. I can't even imagine what you are going through, but hopefully it will all turn out for the best. I am here if you just need to vent!!

Debbie! You ALREADY have your apartment put together? I moved in August and am still finding boxes to unpack haha. Great job! You are awesome!

Anywhos, it was an AWESOME sports weekend here in Wisconsin. Go Packers, Brewers, and Badgers! That being said, I definitely did not do well fitness and nutrition-wise. A lot of beer, cheese, and meat, but I know that I need to kick my butt into gear this week and get back on track! Maybe I will look up some healthier recipes for those exciting game days!

Hope everyone has an awesome week!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon on getting your apartment organized Debbie, I knew you would get this knocked out in no time. I'm the same way, if I know there something I need to do, it eats at me til I get it done. Sometimes this can be a tiresome trait to have! LOL!

Kenny & I had a restful night, a much needed one at that. We surely love our grandkids but they wear us out, not to mention spending a big portion of Sunday at church. Last night was the first Sunday in a really long time that I recall sleeping so soundly, didnt feel quite as tired this morning as usually do.

Hope things look up for you jewelrylover, this has got to be unnerving to say the least. Will say a prayer for you.

Been a rough weekend. Been having job issues for quite awhile. Trying to make the best of it until I can switch jobs, but now I'm in trouble. Got put on administrative leave Saturday night, and have no idea why. They wouldn't say, just that there were "concerns". ????? Meet with the big boss and my manager tomorrow, and fully expect to be fired. That is what usually happens when there are concerns. I have been so stressed out. What a crummy weekend! emoticon
The upside is that I got to spend extra time with my mom! She was really happy about that, and says that they are crazy for not telling me what is going on. Got to love the unconditional support of parents, even at my age. emoticon
Enough whining about something I can't do anything about.

Debbie-I am so happy to hear that you are all moved. Sounds great!

Time to get something accomplished. Weather is supposed to be fantastic all week, so have that to look forward to! Maybe I can get my outside work done finally.
