About Me

I’m starting all over with this. I was tempted to delete all my old posts, but I think having them to look back on can give me the motivation to keep going forward. I did it once, right!

The basics is this:

I am a 41 year old single mother of 5 kids, ranging in age from 20 - 7 years. The oldest and youngest are girls, three boys in the middle. Three of my kids are on the autism spectrum but my 9 year old son is the most “severe” and really the only one who has more of a daily issues type thing with it. My oldest daughter moved out and lives on her own now. The oldest two are in college, middle boy is in high school, youngest two are in 5th and 2nd grade. I work as the store manager of my parents’ hobby/toy store. It’s a love/hate sort of thing. I love having the flexibility and lower stress of working in this kind of family environment. With that being said, working with/for family can suck. And I’m not doing even remotely what I want or would like to do. But it’s a job, fairly secure (as secure as anything can be in this economy) and it provides me with the stability my family situation requires.

I am back up to my highest weight ever (214.6 lbs) I may have brushed up again 220 a time or two, but I’ve never seen that number on the scale (mostly because I just flat out won’t weigh myself at times.) I am determined to see 115 on the scale. I am barely 5′2″ and have really petite bone structure. My doctor thinks 115 is an excellent goal weight. So there’s that.

I try to remind myself: one day at a time. I ‘m not very good at listening to myself though. So I get discouraged really easily. And frequently. Really frequently.

But I’m going to keep trying.

Also, I have an undying love for Coke Zero.

And Junior Mints.

And Brendan Fraser.

Whether you are in the classroom or conference room, the sleek, contemporary design and rugged functionality of the 3M Overhead Projector Model 1711 means you can expand their minds without sacrificing your budget. An open singlet projection head makes the 3M Model 1711 easy to focus and clean, while 2,500 lumens of light ensure your image and message are clear - even when the room lights are on.

  5. This person, utilized to be my friend, had posted a blog criticizing my loved ones with point out of my full name. This blog was posted on the foreign web site but this individual resides within the U.S. now. I have all the evidences in my hand. And this individual keeps posting blogs without my name on it anymore after she got a warning from the site. My loved ones is enduring from a mental pain.
