I am a retired teacher--taught 1st graders for 35 years. Am now very involved in volunteer projects, mostly throught my church. I love to travel and cruise. Am married (45 years) and have 1 son and 2 grandsons.

September, 2009
I've decided it's time to start over! I am determined to do better and to be successful!
I do get in regular exercise at Curves but I've not been very good with the diet! BUT, I'm not going on a diet, I'm going to work on life changes especially with my eating habits!

August 2018

Four and a half years since I lost my husband. I still talk to him but know one day I will see him. I have discovered that I’m stronger than I ever thought. I continue to travel and have learned I can do things he always did.

June 2014
My life has changed drastically since losing Chuck in January. I am learning I can do things I never thought I could do--like mowing the lawn! Chuck was the one who loved to work outside and I enjoyed what he planted! This year I took the easy way out--I planted artificial flowers! They bloom all year and I never have to worry about watering them!
October 2014
I'm approaching 9 months of being alone. I don't like it but I'm keeping busy. I have gotten back to Curves and I have lost 25 pounds. I WILL SURVIVE!

Member Since: 11/27/2007

My goalsare: 1. to get 40 pounds off in order to first improve my health and so I'll feel better and the bonus of looking better! 2. to improve my eating habits. (I LOVE food ~~ especially what is NOT good for me!)

My Program:
I'm doing good with exercise. Have started doing Curves Smart which is a big help to me
Now I really need to work on the food!

    Top o’ the mornin’ to ye! It’s the Friday before St Patrick’s Day so let’s have a wee bit o’ Irish humor to start off the weekend right!

    An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding.
    The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest’s breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.
    He says, “Father, have you been drinking?”
    “Just water,” says the priest.
    The trooper looks him in the eye and says, “Then why do I smell wine?”
    The priest looks down at the bottle and says, “Good Lord! He’s done it again!”

    Gallagher opened the morning newspaper and was dumbfounded to read in the obituary column that he had died. He quickly phoned his best friend Finney.
    “Did you see the paper?!” asked Gallagher. “They say I died!!”
    “Yes, I saw it!” replied Finney. “So where are ye callin’ from?”

    Why does it take five Irishmen to change a lightbulb?
    One to change the bulb. Four to remark about how grand the old bulb was.

    How can you tell if an Irishman is having a good time?
    He's Dublin over with laughter!

    Why are so many leprechauns florists?
    They have green thumbs!

    How is a good friend like a four-leaf clover?
    They’re hard to find!

    I am so glad I found you here on Spark People!!! Enjoy your weekend!
