Yea! I don't feel like the walking dead and I can see the light at the end of this tunnel (no, it's not an oncoming train, either!). Thanks especially to the suggestion for the Traditional MedicinalsBreathe Easy Tea, it worked great (still ta... Read more
Diagnosis: not too good!
Monday, March 19, 2012      3 comments

Well, it's decided; I've got pneumonia and severe bronchitis. This after a great week? Oh well, guess it's time to get rest and quit trying to run three businesses all by myself? Diagnosis: too much stress and not enough living and loving lif... Read more
Flu and cold season isn't past??
Sunday, March 18, 2012      2 comments

I'm sick, sick, sick and not liking it at all! Do we feed a fever and starve a cold or starve a fever and feed a cold? Great, I've got both.... Read more
Trivia Nightmares
Wednesday, March 14, 2012      6 comments

OK, does anyone else hate the trivia questions as much as me?? I swear, the next time I miss 5 to get 3 right will be the end of my trivial pursuits (funny, right?). Seriously, I can't believe some of the answers as I look them up afterwards a... Read more
2012 Already??
Sunday, March 11, 2012      1 comments

Obviously, I haven't blogged in awhile. It just seemed mundane to me, so I sropped for a time to get my mind right. I have been reading a lot though, so I'm keeping up with the Spark family. You all are so supportive and encouraging; what a n... Read more
Blog/blah Monday!!
Monday, January 30, 2012      1 comments

It's another Monday,... odd how these seem to "happen" once a week? I've been busy doing busy work, but not really accomplishing as much as I'd like. I'm motivated, even when the scale "tells" me not to be, but I'm staying positive. 'Ha... Read more
Happy Monday
Monday, November 14, 2011      2 comments

Why is it that Monday is such a down day for so many? I suppose it's because it's the first day of most work weeks and the day following weekends for those in school. So,... I've made it a goal all year to try and be extra positive and extra h... Read more
Kick-off to the holiday season
Friday, November 11, 2011      4 comments

I run a retail store in a fairly small, navy town (Oak Harbor, WA on Whidbey Island) and I was surprised today in the number of holiday shoppers I had coming in. Truthfully, I thought it'd be a typical, no-customer holiday when I opened to get ... Read more
Anybody point addicted??
Thursday, November 10, 2011      5 comments

OK, I'm trying to wean myself away from becoming too competitive with the spark points. Anyone else in this boat? I don't know how, but all of a sudden I find myself reading and doing everything I can just to get the most spark points possible... Read more
Rain, rain go away
Monday, November 07, 2011      3 comments

Ever have one of those days when you try to keep your mood from matching the weather? It's rainy, a bit gloomy, and trying to get cold. But, ... I'm persevering (how noble of me!) and focusing on the fact that it's a great time of year with th... Read more
Who eats like a bird?
Sunday, November 06, 2011      4 comments

I'm sitting at my computer looking out over the garden we have in the back yard and watching the birds flying back at forth at the feeders. Oh my goodness, they never seem to stop. Two bites, then they fly to the nearest evergreen, then back f... Read more
Sharing the joy of the season
Friday, November 04, 2011      1 comments

Driving through this beautiful island paradise called Whidbey, as I took a trip from Oak Harbor to Freeland to help a client, I was amazed at the trees changing colors, the lush green, and the abundance of bird life. What a great time of year a... Read more
Yea!! Spark Family is there and alive for all of us
Wednesday, November 02, 2011      1 comments

Thanks to everyone who wrote and responded to my "negative" plea for the Spark family to be real. My apologies for sounding as down as I did, but I was truly worried for our "lost" family member (she wrote again and, though still a bit on the d... Read more
Hello Out There??
Wednesday, November 02, 2011      4 comments

Ever feel like your're writing/talking to yourself,... then come to the realization that you really are? It hit me today as I read through all the Spark writings that I've gotta' get a life outside the computer. It's a good thing that Spark is... Read more
Ghost in the email machine??
Sunday, October 30, 2011      4 comments

Anybody else experiencing "lost points" with emails?? I've had this happening for a few weeks and, when I write and ask, no real positive response (other than thanking me for signing up for emails and an assurance that they'll be sent?). It's ... Read more
