Ever Forward, One Step at a Time!

I am a 55-year-young school teacher, who has been down this road before. I started with SparkPeople three years ago. Only a month into the program, I suffered a fall and needed 7 months of rehab and surgery to put my knee back together. I wasn't quite finished with the knee when breast cancer hit. I dealt with many complications associated with my treatment, yet here I am! I am a survivor!

Thanks for the comment in my blog as for taking knitting with me to the hospital I could but is is easier to take a book with me. I have some Father Brown stories by G.K Chesterton in a pocket sized edition so nice and small to slip into my handbag.

Good Morning Laurie,

Thanks for the comments on my blog, and once again, welcome back to Spark.

For the past two years I have been working for the University of Minnesota and one of its Research and Outreach centers, located in Grand Rapids. I am the office support assistant and work with all research departments - Agronomy, Animal Science, Forest Biology, Forestry, Horticulture, Tourism, and Wild Rice. I do everything from reception to data entry, design of promotional documents, photography, accounting and a lot more. The variety keeps me from ever getting bored and the staff is awesome!

Mike came into my life in April 2013, and we have been happily living together for a year. He made all the online dating nightmares worthwhile. Our first date (meeting for morning coffee) lasted 13 hours!

Hope your summer is going well and that your health is good!
