Hi, my name is Sandy

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Hi Everyone~
My name is Sandy. I am about to turn 51 and don't know how the number doesn't match how I feel... hm, and that varies. Sometimes I feel like I am still in my 30s and sometimes I feel like I am in my 80s... anyway: where to start.

I am married, but about to be divorced for the second time. Never thought I would ever be divorced once, let alone twice. My husband moved out 1 year ago today... I guess he isn't coming back. That's ok.

I am a Christian mom of 3, my son is 25 and my girls are 21 (yep, they are twins). The girls and my son-in-law live with me. And I am going to experience the joy of becoming a grandma for the first time in January! So excited!!!

I am a teacher's assistant in a KIDS program with the school district. I have been with the school district for 13 years, wow, and I love my job. I work with 3 to 6 year old children with Autism. It is a fun, exciting, rewarding, tiring, amazing job! I have been in the same class with the same teacher for 8 years. I also do some private tutoring with an 8 year old with autism, and I work part time at Lakeshore Learning. So, I am pretty busy.

I have been a member of sparkpeople for several years. I lost 45 pounds when I first joined. My weight has stayed about the same since then, fluctuating a little, but basically staying about the same. Now I am ready to lose the rest of the excess baggage. I know that sparkpeople works. And I know that one of the most important tools is being involved with a good sparkteam. So, here I am... ready to get started again. I am looking forward to getting to know all of you!
