Short and sweet but not prepared to share yet…

Alive and functioning. Mom feeling over whelmed and worn out. Daddy has more appointments before a diagnoses but still serious. Sister in ICU doing poorly. Me, hanging in there trying to take care of everyone and myself.

Did a little crafting yesterday, just to ease the mind…made this…


Not a great picture at all. But it’s made with recycled magazine pictures folded and then a cut out of the word Love. Think I’ll give it to Cindy. She needs to learn to love herself like we do so that she can learn to take care of herself.

Anyways, weight isn’t changing, I am exercising, I haven’t made a regular meal in ages so really need to work on that. Hard to do that and be at the hospital or parents or grandparent or work.

One day at a time. Life is hard but not impossible. Blessings my friends.

Blog break…

I’m sorry guys but I have to take a break. I just don’t have it in me right now to try and keep you up to date on what’s happening here. I don’t have time to catch up with all of you, though I do try.

My dad has some serious health issues we are dealing with. We will be seeing a neurologist in the near future. We have some major things happening here and it is going to take all my energy and strength to help us all get through this.

I will be sharing in awhile but for now I just need to take time for family and self.

I won’t be gone for long, heck I have to share, I have to ask for help and prayers so I’ll be back but just not right this minute.

I do have to share I lost 4 pounds this past month, swam 100 laps, biked 112 miles and started on the last leg of my triathlon the 27 miles. I’m learning to plan my meals better and eat on time. I have entered a small weekly challenge with Spunkysuzi. She’s doing 4 days of 45 minutes a day of exercise. I am planning on jogging/walking 4.5 miles 3 times this week and 1 day of either just walking, a DVD, cross country skiing or ?? No matter what’s happening with others I know that I have to take care of myself in order to do any good for them and that means getting in some exercise and keeping on getting rid of my overweightness.

So for now, excuse my absents and I’ll be around to make sure you are all okay and hanging in there. Prayers for my family please. I know I’m being vague but since we don’t know for sure I don’t want to be more worried or upsetting then I already am.

Blessings my friends. Take care of yourself. Hug you mama and daddy if they are still here, grandparents too. Hug those kids of yours, grandbabies, nieces, nephews, friends because life is uncertain and short.
