On Monday December 19th, 2011 my boyfriends son, Michael, was killed in a car accident. He'd lived with us for a long time. He was just like my own son.

Everyone is devastated. There are no words to explain the depth of this loss. Emotionally, some days are better than others. We had over 500 people attend his wake...he touched everyones life.

This was the worst Christmas ever. I cried all day on Christmas Eve. His empty place at the table, hanging up his stocking...just all so painful. Our family will never be the same. The other children are in shock. We all are. I just keep waiting for him to walk in the door.

Personal Information:
My boyfriend & I have been together since 1997.
I've got 3 children, from my first marriage. Jessie (1988) Chris (1990) & Karley (1994) Plus my boyfriends son, Michael (1992). He's my bonus boy & has lived with us since 1999.

Other Information:
I've been in the airline industry since 2000. I was working for a small airline, that was slowly & painfully going out of business. Loved the company. Great coworkers & travel benefits no one else in the industry could even come close to. But, I couldn't take the stress. On Nov. 30th, 2011, I submitted my resignation / 2 week notice. The company closed on Jan. 2012.

Dec. 2011, Michael was killed in a car accident. There are no words to describe the loss & heartbreak.

In the spring of 2013, we moved to a new house. A bittersweet move, but it was too hard to stay at the old house. We needed to move out of the area. The new house was an absolute disaster & not my 1st choice, to say the least. There's been a lot of blood sweat & tears during the renovations.

Applied for a flight attendant position Oct. 2015. I am now flying Reserve, which is tricky.
Very happy with the direction my career has taken. My goal is to retire from the company in 10 years

    Hi Kat,

    Thank you for the spark goodie. I have not been on in about a week. This is the first time in over one year that I did not even visit to post my calories. I have been struggling with some issues at home and my old over eating returned from the lack of my self control. I will regroup and I will put this behind me. Hope your Christmas was good and happy new year a bit early!
