I've started a blog called The Queen Of All Things Random. It's a perfect way for me to talk about all of the random things that run through my head. I can talk about the two novels I'm working on, or diabetes related information (my son has type I diabetes, and I have type II) or about being an empty nester, or whatever else that I'm ruminating about.
I'm hoping that I will find that motivation that I had back when I lost weight back in 2009, by coming back here to Sparkleople so I can lose weight and get my blood sugars back under control.
I'd like to lose 59 lbs.
I want to feel healthy and be a good role model for my kids.
That, and I'd really like to look sexy for my wedding! :)
I'm tracking what I eat here under the Nutrition Tracker thingie here on sparkpeople.

I am happily engaged to a wonderful man. We had planned to marry on September 26th of 2014 (this year!), but due to insurance problems (neither of us have any), we may have to postpone it until one of us gets a job with good insurance.
I have two wonderful children. My son, Casey, is 22. And my daughter, Karsyn, is 19. I have a bit of the "empty nest" syndrome going on. It's strange not having them at home. But they have to fly off on their own eventually, right? :)
I love to read. My favorite authors are Diana Gabaldon, Dean Koontz, Dan Brown, J.K. Rowling, Richelle Mead, etc...
