Why do some sparklers keep their sparkpages private? I love "snooping" on peoples sparkpages. That's how we make friends. I've even met seven spark friends in person and a couple have become great friends I love having in my life. Tod... Read more

A couple of months ago I took a course. On the first night we had to pick a goal and figure out how we were going to reach that goal. We had to write down the goal, figure out what we needed to accomplish it and break it down so it wasn't overwh... Read more

I learned a while back that if I have a craving, chances are, if I substitute something low cal or low fat, I eat the substitution, then end up giving in to my original craving at the end. I saw a commercial for a McRib sandwich recently.... Read more

Today I got to put my arms around my son, who is home from Afghanistan for two weeks. For those who haven't followed his journey, he was in a "car accident" which he failed to tell me involved rocket propelled grenades hitting his convoy. I then... Read more

I spent yesterday getting in lawn chairs, umbrellas, and hanging plants. I took the dog to the beach just before hurricane Earl was going to hit. This morning... Read more

At a class I was taking a couple weeks ago, someone told us a story about a woman who was looking for her soulmate. One day the woman pulled into her driveway and opened the door to her two car garage. There was so much clutter, she could b... Read more

Yesterday I came back from walking my dog to find 5 missed calls from my son in Afghanistan. (this was one of the only times I didn't take my phone with me). When Sam finally got a hold of me he told me he was in the hospital. It was a bad conne... Read more
a stop at the store

I had to stop at the grocery store after work yesterday. There was a woman holding everyone up trying to park her car in the closest spot. She must have pulled in and out 20 times (no one could move around her) My first thought was "I bet she's ... Read more
It's a New Month (Thank God)

Last month I only lost 2 pounds (at least it was lost and not gained). I started thinking about spark and how much I enjoy some of my spark friends, but somehow I've gotten lazy checking in with my friends. It's been a couple of weeks sin... Read more

What a beautiful morning I woke up to, a gentle, beautiful blanket of snow covering everything! I made myself some warm oatmeal, the kind that takes five minutes to cook. I carefully cut up an apple to mix in and sprinkled it with cinnam... Read more

I love New Year's Day. The first day of a new year filled with hope and dreams. A fresh start. I am glad to see 2009 end. It was not the best year for me. I can't think of anything great that happened in my life. The worst being I lost my job ... Read more

I just got back from a weekend conference with a couple hundred people I had never met before. We went to small classes of 25 or so, each class with a different group, so I had a good chance to "people watch". I know I'm generalizing, but I... Read more

I had fun, I spent the night in Salem with 100,000 other people. They sure know how to throw a party in the city of the witches, and talk about fabulous costumes. BUT Halloween is over. Now nothing is left but the candy, and as an added bonus t... Read more
