I decided to wipe out all that I had in my intro... I think there was a bit of negative energy in it. So, here it goes... I have been on Spark for almost 4 years. I've been up and I've been down. I've had some great times and some rough times.

With that being said (a favorite saying of my principal and a running joke with staff), I have a feeling that 2014 may be the best year yet! I have many wonderful things to look forward to in the year to come. A co-worker/friend is marrying her prince charming in May and her wedding should be quite the party! Then in August I am taking my kiddo on our first big trip with just the 2 of us. We're heading to Disney World for a wonderful week of Disney magic!

In order to enjoy every moment of that very warm and humid magical week at Disney, I need to get myself back into proper shape. And, that it where SP comes in...

It is what it is and it will be what I make it... And I plan to make it Amazing!

* measuring everything that I eat

Personal Information:
I am the mother of a smart, beautiful, funny, and strong willed 8 year old daughter. I am a 1st Grade teacher. I may have joined SP on 2/27/10, however, I officially began using SP on 3/15/10 so I consider that my anniversary date.

Other Information:
I love to read and scrapbook. I also enjoy watching movies and shopping (especially for my daughter). I love camping with my family...we go to 8th Lake Campground in the Adirondack Mts for 2 weeks every July. I also love planning trips to Disney World (for myself or for others!).

    I think that is pretty neat that you work with the kiddos that a lot of people don't want to. I can relate. I am currently interning with juvenile sex offenders. I am in school for counseling and I got my bachelor degree in social work so I have worked with lots of folks that no one wants to deal with. Kuddos to you!! We need more people like you with the passion and drive to do what they were called to do.

    Enjoy your weekend! :0)

    Thanks so much for the words of encouragement. It made me feel so much better about the weight I gained while on the cruise. I know now that it's only 3 lbs and it could have been much worse. Have a great day!!

    Twins are doing good. A little behind in their classes meaning grades were a little low but slowly their bring them back up. They are taking advantage of the situation with me working so much. Sigh. Ive taken away their xbox, ipod touches, and threatened to put them in brick and mortar if they dont stop messing around. They have till end of this month to bring their grades up or its a summer without their electronics. I think it finally got through to them. LOL Their working hard now.
