Time to find a gym and personal trainer
Tuesday, January 12, 2016      4 comments

Apparently I can no longer do this on my own, even though I know what to do. I just can't get motivated to do anything these days as far as exercise and healthy eating go. I don't get in enough walking during the day to count for much. There's... Read more

I'm not much of a blogger; the last time was in August, 2014! After retirement I've made a new life for myself by starting a pet sitting business. I'm so happy now!! I've always wanted to so something with animals but I wasn't exactly sure w... Read more

Saturday morning, Wyatt was not acting right. He wasn't able to lay down and be comfortable, was drooling, vomiting a little, panting and he just didn't look good. I called the vet and we brought him to be looked at. After an exam and Xrays, ... Read more

I like to find exercises on YouTube so that I don't get bored with my workouts. I like to search for exercises for women over 50 simply because I'm still building back up in regard to fitness. Today I found a walking one by Jane Fonda. I real... Read more
It's Wednesday

It's below zero again. I don't walk my dogs in this weather and it's hard on them. They don't understand. I play games with them but it's not the same thing. Last night I kept them out of a few rooms and hid treats all over for them to find.... Read more
Not a normal Spark topic. How do I stop my kitten from biting?
Tuesday, January 14, 2014      3 comments

We have never had a young kitten before. All of our cats have come from shelters as adults and none have been biters or scratchers. We took in a stray kitten and now she's about 8 months old. If she starts to bite or scratch me while I'm up d... Read more

Now that the holidays are all over it's back to full work weeks again. Work is stressful these days. My weight keeps creeping back up and up and up. It's because I'm not mindful of what I'm doing every day...too many binges, too many buffets,... Read more

I love this. Between yesterday and today, I got things set up for 2014 at work as well as cleaned up some e-mails. Not many people seem to be back from the holiday break yet and it's nice and quiet. Others retired on 12/31...I didn't get a ch... Read more
Back to work today
Thursday, January 02, 2014      2 comments

At least there are only 2 work days to ease back into the daily grind. I LOVED being off from work during the holidays. I was able to clean out a closet (a much-needed activity), organize a cabinet, take down the Christmas decorations AND put ... Read more
