A Good Addiction........

Thursday, August 21, 2008

As I go through all of the different things to learn on Sparks I end up laughing at myself. Sometimes, I have to force myself to get off the computer to do my work! Right now, I decided at least the washing machine could be doing the work for me emoticon I was trying to get a picture of food to show up on my posts so I send myself blueberries from the goodie page and it just ended up on my page. It looks silly; yet I love blueberries so what the heck.

At least I am not munching while on the computer. I could be drinking water though so I will go get some right now! Once I go back to work I will drink a ton of water and eat healthy most of the time. Summer messes up my routine but thats ok. I also tell myself that I am going to go back to the gym. I pay and then don't go. Or I do go and it doesn't seem to do any good. Such confusion - no, not confusion. I need to eat right and work out. I do enjoy walking after work in the school or outside.

I know that I am rambling but that is ok too. My mom who lives next to us in a mobile home is moving 27 miles away into an apartment. She is 78 and can't handle sitting there through the long winter months. The other day I sat down and cried and cried. She has been on this farm as long as I can remember. Yet, I can't be selfish. I am hoping she will develop some friendships with other people her own age and be happier. I can visit her every weekend !! It will just be lonely for awhile. Life is ever changing and that is how God means it to be. I can say it has been a BLESSING to have lived so close to Mom for so long and that I formed a good relationship with my Dad before he passed away several years ago. I used to live with them while we built our home and each morning I would bring my Dad a cup of coffee to his room and he would say "Good morning teacher!" I cherish those moments.

I am really glad I found this web site. emoticon
