June 2nd Since The Last Time I Blogged. Yup. Really... Really?!

Friday, August 22, 2014


I knew it's been a while since I have blogged, yet I didn't realize it's been since June 2nd!


I have to apologize to all of you Spark buddies. I'm so sorry for not being here.

Now, here are the excuses.

I had to get my nails done and my hair. I had to walk the dog and the cat and mouse. I had to watch t.v. I had to sit and sit and sit and sit and sit.

No, really.


Actually, my Mom went on holidays and I had to go to her house every second day. Make sure things were fine and the critters were fed and watered. Although her neighbours were checking on things, I was the one who could get in the house.

Besides that, I seem to be very, very tired. It really doesn't take much for me to tucker out. So when I go to my Mom's, the next day, I'm toast.

The weather here has been very hot and humid, which is different for my area. Hot I can handle, humid...not so much. We don't have air conditioning, since it would only be on for a few weeks, but I think this summer was exceptional. I found out, I cannot handle the heat.

Now that's it's cooling off, I'm finding I'm still rather inactive.

I'm tired. Really, really tired. I think I have to get my iron levels checked again.

I do have good news though. My DH has finally agreed to take off a couple of days and we're going on a last family stint. My son has graduated from high school and before he gets a full time job, we are all going for a last hurrah.

DD1 is going to graduate this coming school year and that will be two done. Done, done, done...

So, as I have said, I'm sorry for not being here. I plan to come back as soon as everyone is settled in school and I can get moving again and doing things for myself. (Does that actually happen?)

Hope everyone is having a great summer and getting things done. Whether it's losing weight, gardening, learning and crafting and oh, I don't know.

Take care.

    Can't believe it has taken me soooo long to respond to your blog! emoticon
    As I was reading your blog about the heat and the humidity I could totally relate to how you were feeling. I also cannot take the humidity, saps all the energy out of me.
    Would definitely get your iron levels checked. My daughter constantly has relapses and gets anaemia easily.

    This diet I am on is working! So happy as I am losing weight in time for going to a wedding in November .

    Your children are growing up soooo quickly! emoticon

    Great to hear from you and thankyou for commenting on my blog!

    One graduated and another on the way, doesn't it go fast? My son is starting his last year of college and just turned 21 this month. I can't believe how fast it has gone. The summer is usually like a black hole for me, not enough hours in the day. Hope you start feeling better and that the tiredness goes away. emoticon

    No wonder you are tired! I would be too! But still get your iron checked out anyways. I completely understand, since alot has happened lately, besides my mom's husband, whom I have zero respect for, I am the other care taker for my mom. She is pretty much alone and I have been running around with her on doctors appointment, cleaning her house, cooking for her, running her errands, it's hectic, so I know what you mean. Congratulations on your son graduation! I am glad you guys will be able to go on vacation and enjoy each others company before he heads out. Both your children graduating speaks volumes of you! You did great with them and I am sure you will continue doing great!

    Take care and enjoy your cooler weather as it approaches, I am used to scorching heat here and I can't wait for the fall!

    Oh, sweetie, life happens and we know that you would be here if you could....you were missed and I am glad you are back. I hope that you get to feeling better soon. :( Getting your iron checked would be a good idea. In the meantime, just rest and take care of yourself! You're in my thoughts and prayers and I hope that you can take it easy this weekend. Have a great one.
