So I'm starting all over again. I am a 50 something kindergarten teacher, mother of four grown children and 7 grandchildren. I've been a member of SP for a long time, but have also been away for a long time. My spark didn't dim, it went out. I put my health on the back burner to take care of others, and now I'm paying the price. I have discovered that if I want to take care of others, I have to take care of ME first. I am dealing with some serious problems due to arthritis and degenerative disc disease, so I am going to focus on healthy eating and doing what exercise I can.

Personal Information:
My name is Karen. I'm originally from sunny CA, spent 10 years living in Idaho (I love it there!), and currently live in the Kentuckiana area ( I live in IN but work in KY). I have four children, two girls and two boys. I have SEVEN grandchildren, who mean the world to me. I have two less than intelligent but lovable basset hounds, a kitty named Tigger, and a wonderful fiance, Mike.

Other Information:
I love to play my flute, garden, cook, scrapbook, and read. I'll read just about anything, but I'm a sucker for a good romance. I also enjoy writing stories. I'm a serious Tigger addict- I love his optimistic outlook and energy.

The glow getter is from the spark activity tracker. You set a goal for steps (mine is 8000 a day right now), and every day you reach your goal, you get an award. I try to make it 5 days a week.

Ha! No love there at ALL. I will try tolerance because I am basically a good person, lol.

What is the Glow Getter Award? Congrats on that!
