I think this year will be better for us. Victoria is down from a 55 degree curvature in her back to 27 degrees since we started casting and bracing a year and a half ago. We have deleted one pump feed, the early morning 4:30am pump feed, which was affecting my health to get up for every morning. We now feed Victoria 4 pump feeds a day. My husband stays up for the latest pu...

Not a lot will change. I will be the lead teacher, but my paperwork is current to be a Director. And, so I will be teaching and Directing on that one day! Although, there will be another Director acting as the experienced Director, but her paperwork is not current, or on file. So my paperwork will suffice just to put on record that there is a current p... Fri, 6 Dec 2013 03:48:21 EST November 30, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5553715 My co-teacher, Cashley had relatives come in from out of town unexpectedly, so therefore she did not come over. We did, instead have a friend from church who I teach Sunday school to her kids. She and her 2 kids came over and we had a grand time. Victoria loves her kids! And they played and played all night as my husband and I got dinner together. Thanksgiving was awesome spending it with Jasmine, Jonner and Lauren and my husband and Victoria. We had more than enough to eat for the 6 o... Sat, 30 Nov 2013 21:13:00 EST November 23rd, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5548187 Made it past 90 days probation! Which means I get a raise AND I get paid holidays, paid sick days and paid vacation for 2 weeks. I think I might be working over Thanksgiving at home on a fun project! I am going to invite my co-teacher Cashley over and work on the decorations for our classroom door. If we win the prize is possibly a free dinner out. I lost another 2 pounds. Down to 161 instead of 165. Greg, my husband insists on cooking, therefore the most productive thing I can do is w... Sat, 23 Nov 2013 05:31:40 EST November 11, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5538456 I am frustrated by my weight. I am now a size 14! I don't have time to exercise like I used to with a toddler around all the time and working full time! We are not making our bills despite my best efforts(I am trying to look for a second job but it is tough with a toddler!) Greg will work an additional 13 hours a week, besides his 40 hour a week job in December. I take medicine that without deducting $600 to $650 a month out of my husband's paycheck, I cannot afford. I am always tired. ... Mon, 11 Nov 2013 17:14:50 EST November 3, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5530840 Planning a baby shower for my co-teacher, Cashley Tabor. So far, only 6 people out of 25 said they would come. I realize that everyone has busy schedules, but Cashley is really going to need this. <BR> <BR> I had 2 baby showers, but circumstances were different. I have lived in the valley 20 years, have been married for almost 10 years, and I have a few friends besides the people I work with. <BR> <BR> Cashley is a very young woman, 23 years old, and hasn't lived in this valley very long.... Sun, 3 Nov 2013 10:34:01 EST October 7, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5506594 Got my State Director's certificate sent to me. As of Septemeber 24, 2013 I am qualified to run a large daycare through education and experience. <BR> <BR> Victoria will only be with me one more year until she goes to public school, so right now I am satisfied being a teacher in the same classroom as her. I have to be careful to give the rest of the kids the attention they deserve too. Or else the parents and my job could be in jeopardy. The only extra attention Victoria needs from me is... Mon, 7 Oct 2013 04:33:29 EST SEPTEMBER 30, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5500941 Moved up from being a sub 32 hours a week to lead teacher 38 to 40 hours a week in the younger toddler classroom, which also the same room Victoria, my daughter just moved up to from older infants, after transitioning for 2 weeks. <BR> <BR> Have decided to put off graduate school possibly until 2016. The program starts this January 2014, but Victoria is still very needy at this point with her feeding tube 5 times a day and oral feedings 3 times a day plus a snack. <BR> <BR> It would not ... Tue, 1 Oct 2013 01:14:25 EST September 15, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5485895 The program I am trying to apply to is Early Childhood Education with a Special Ed Endorsement. I already have a bachelor's degree and a Director's certificate in early childhood education. <BR> <BR> The reason I was doing this is because I was hoping I could be hired by the school as as an Assistant Director by January. I had to start all over again as a sub teacher during a 90 day probationary period at this school. I am very grateful that I have this job. The next step would be assis... Sun, 15 Sep 2013 04:20:45 EST September 25, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5485894 I am trying to make the deadline to apply to Colorado University - Denver campus grad school by October 1st. I don't know whether or not a couple of things from my background will hold me back or not. I was fired from my last teaching job unfairly, and that might hold me back, although I was hired again by the grace of God at a Christian school. Also, in 2001 I have a misdemeanor on my record. I have a DWAI as well as a minor traffic violation. Those 2 things could stop me from getting i... Sun, 15 Sep 2013 04:00:49 EST September 8, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5479122 Ran twice during me 8th week trying to train for a marathon next year. Ran 2.3 miles in the beginning of the week. And, 3 miles today(saturday). <BR> <BR> I was hired as a sub teacher and will be working 30-40 hours per week. After 90 days probation, I will be hired as a full time teacher to assist in one classroom, and hopefully given a steady 40 hours a week. They(the school) want tuition for the whole month of September by the 15th of September. That is not going to be possible if m... Sun, 8 Sep 2013 00:26:23 EST August 21, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5471697 Took Victoria to Denver for a full week for an intensive feeding therapy clinic. This week includes the 7th week running. I did not run at all this week. I had Victoria with me alone and was mostly spending my spare time driving in traffic in Denver. I can only run when my husband is willing to watch Victoria while I run for an hour. <BR> <BR> I got up at 5am every morning this week to feed Victoria from 5am to 6am with the pump, and then pack up all her food and on the road by 7am to d... Sat, 31 Aug 2013 12:55:31 EST August 18th, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5459107 On my last day of the 5th week since I have been running consistently, I ran my 4 mile loop. Under 60 minutes. Burned 450 calories. I had cereal, and a granola bar for breakfast. Two half cups of coffee after teaching Sunday school and a strawberry. When I got home I made the leftover strawberries, bananas and milk as well as leftover strawberry/banana yogurt into a smoothie for my daughter, husband and I. I went running around 2:30pm, and got back at 3:30pm. I burned 450 calories and... Sun, 18 Aug 2013 18:27:23 EST August 17, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5458358 Just got back from Salt Lake City, Utah. I start work on Monday August 19th. Went to Salt Lake because Victoria got her 4th or 5th cast put back on for her scoliosis. She is doing the meta casting method, and we are using her ability to grow while casted to get her spine and rib rotation straight again. We gave her a "cast holiday" for 5 months over the summer and her spine went from a 31 degree curve with the last meta cast to 37 degrees wearing her brace that was removeable for baths an... Sat, 17 Aug 2013 20:36:38 EST August 2, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5442083 Just finished my third week running 6 times in 5 days anywhere from 2 miles to 6 miles per day. I will be camping this weekend to celebrate our 6 year wedding anniversary with Greg and Victoria. Victoria has never been camping. We hope to take 2 day hikes while we are camping with Victoria. We have a special napsack that holds Victoria for hiking and we got a double sleeping bag which we will put Victoria between us in the tent. Greg borrowed a queen air mattress too which we will use fo... Fri, 2 Aug 2013 09:52:22 EST July 30, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5438800 I just found out my interview is for a Director position, not just a lead teacher position. I have all my information together. I should have a Director's license through the state, if they approve all my paperwork. In case I do not get the Director's position, I hope I at least get a full time teacher's position. <BR> <BR> I am on my third week running 2 to 6 miles per run. I ran 4 miles this morning and hope to sprint 2 miles tonight. My sprinting is possibly a 10 minute or 9 minute... Tue, 30 Jul 2013 16:11:50 EST July 29, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5437671 I have a second interview with the Elder of the Vail Church, David, and the Director of the Development Center, Pam Melot on Wednesday, July 31st at 11:00am. I get to bring Victoria along. I have already observed a transistion and had my first interview. I wonder what Victoria and I should wear. I think we will both wear dresses. I will wear a summer black and white dress and Victoria will wear her black (as we call it) Sonnenalp dress. Unless that is too dressy. I'll have to ask my hu... Mon, 29 Jul 2013 17:54:13 EST July 16, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5423310 Have an interview tomorrow for an infant/toddler teacher position at a Christian daycare I have not worked except for part time sporadic work on care.com. I need a full time job badly! Wish me luck spark friends! Tue, 16 Jul 2013 18:07:31 EST Going to Salt Lake City, Utah tomorrow to take my daughter for her 3rd cast change to Shriners Hospi http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5229137 Victoria is slowly getting better with her feedings. She consistently eats purees. Now time to slowly add some lumpier ingredients to her purees. If it is too thick, she will vomit. 20 minutes max is the amount she can try to eat 3x a day plus a tube feeding overnight. She is getting better with walking as well, although most of the time she scoots on her but, instead of standing on her feet. She can stand on her feet, but needs help balancing. <BR> <BR> This morning I did Cindy Mylrea... Tue, 29 Jan 2013 17:56:04 EST Interview went well for Director position............... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5225023 Now I just have to wait for all my references to be checked. In the meantime, I have been doing Jillian Michael's workout dvd's as well as Greg Sims kickboxing bodybar dvd as well. I have also decided I want to train for my first marathon this summer. I have done 2 half marathons, but never a whole marathon. This summer I will be 46 years old. This morning I ran 3.5 miles uphill to the Beaver Creek Chapel and down 3.6 miles for a total of 7.1 miles in 98 minutes. I think I can get that ... Sat, 26 Jan 2013 23:24:28 EST I have an interview for a Director position of a Christian Daycare! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5217708 I am soooo excited! This is higher up than the lead teacher position I had before! I have been Director Certified for 2 years and have been subbing and a full time lead teacher in early childcare for 4 years! Jennifer McDonald is coming to my own condo to interview me in my home! I am soooooo excited. Pray for me that I don't screw this up! I have another reference to add to my resume too! A good reference. Mon, 21 Jan 2013 21:43:03 EST Friday, January 18, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5213164 For the past week I have been working out with a Jillian Michael's DVD, Cathe Fredrich DVD, or going to the rec center. I have tons of Aerobics DVDs and I also have a membership at the Avon Rec Center. Although it costs $70 for a 10 punch card to watch my daughter at the avon rec center daycare while I workout. Sometimes it is easier to do a workout DVD at home, with my daughter watching me workout than taking her to the rec center to pay not only for the use of the rec center in passes, b... Fri, 18 Jan 2013 14:22:47 EST Greg can put myself and Victoria on his insurance for $700 a month! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5200981 Still trying to get babysitting jobs here and there. Greg and I hopefully made up and maybe he will start sleeping in the same bed as me. I do not know if next month we will be able to pay all our bills. But, $700 a month for health insurance for Victoria and I is cheaper than $1200 a month cobra. I ran 4.75 miles today. I just needed to get out of this condo! I need to exercise everyday somehow to manage this stress not only physically, but mentally too! Greg is off today, and was abl... Thu, 10 Jan 2013 18:29:46 EST Wednesday, January 9, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5198152 Filed online for unemployment. Getting a call for WIC assistance, and filing for disability. I have a call coming from Glenwood tomorrow at 9:30am for disability, and 1:30pm for WIC. Greg is no longer sleeping in the same bed as me because I am unemployed. The only thing I can expect from Greg is for him to hopefully keep his 2 jobs, and to watch Victoria when I interview for jobs. I cannot afford daycare, (full price)and my COBRA payment is approx. $1200 a month. Wed, 9 Jan 2013 05:09:49 EST Sunday, January 6, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5194290 Went skiing today with friends for about 2 hours. It felt good to get out of this condo. Thank God, Greg got me a dependant ski pass for $35 for the whole season. Greg stayed home with Victoria and I skied with friends. Going to aerobics in the morning from 9am to 10am and then the bank, pick up my crock pot and counseling by 11am. Should be home by 12:00noon to feed Victoria which should take an hour and a half. The first half hour I will orally spoon feed her, then hook her up to the ... Mon, 7 Jan 2013 05:32:41 EST Babysitting on Saturday too........ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5191053 Then, I should have a break for a few days. I need to exercise! I have not been able to exercise. Thanks Anne for your advice! I am debating bringing the kids to the rec center tomorrow. I have some extra punches on my daycare card. but that is costing me money for 2 kids, and I only make $40 a day. I also need to go to a counseling visit on Monday, and I do not know if I'll make the cobra payment to pay for the counseling session. Sat, 5 Jan 2013 04:40:45 EST Babysitting an extra child besides mine. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5189511 I am getting paid $40 a day. For 10 hours. The only reason I am doing that is because I am friends with the couple who need the childcare. I could use the money, but it is way under what I used to get paid for 10 hours a day. With 2 children I cannot go to the gym as much, and workout myself. Maybe on Saturday, I will workout. Saturday morning. Fri, 4 Jan 2013 07:20:47 EST December 31, 2012 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5182737 Last day of the year and did an hour and a half aerobics class this morning. I feel like my body is constantly sore from exercise in the last week. Mon, 31 Dec 2012 19:49:59 EST Ran 4.1 miles in 50 minutes today with yak trax on my running shoes... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5181550 Burned 500 calories. No Migraine. No colitis today, or irritable bowel syndrome. Very relaxing day. Even though Victoria threw up twice. Victoria is slowly eating some more, but continues to throw up her pump feed one to two times a day. I think she has a cold now too. Hopefully she will not get up at 2am in the morning tonight. Sun, 30 Dec 2012 23:23:06 EST Exercise............ http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5180454 I have been running with my yak trax on my running shoes outside. Thursday, I ran 4 or 5 miles outside, and because of the yak trax, I did not slip on the ice. Friday I did the booty camp aerobics, which from the week before I was so sore I could hardly walk! But, I came back to the booty camp aerobics class and continue to come back every Friday as well as Monday mornings. I might start walking Victoria outside in the mornings to get her better adjusted to winter weather. I would like t... Sun, 30 Dec 2012 01:05:46 EST I lost. I did not get my job back. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5180413 Although, recently I have been called to watch kids on 3 separate days and now every Saturday with one child, besides my own. <BR> <BR> My friend is a ski instructor during winters in Vail or Beaver Creek. She said she was working on getting me a referral to babysit on New Year's Eve. I watch her daughter now every Saturday through the winter along with my daughter. It was fun today. I've got to say, Keanna has got to be Victoria's best friend, and what an active little girl! It is grea...

Sun, 23 Dec 2012 00:52:07 EST It seems like a waste of money for me to eat as much as I have been. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5171443 Tonight I let my husband cook dinner, and Victoria ate. My husband can eat the leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Maybe, I will lose weight after all. We should really feel the weight of my unemployment in 2 weeks, right in time for the New Year. Yay! Wed, 19 Dec 2012 21:11:42 EST Lost my job today December 19, 2012 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5171252 And, the other teacher still has her job. I wrote about the incident on Sparkpeople and then deleted it. Another teacher I worked with had a big part in me losing my job. She has none of her own children, doesn't need health insurance because she is on her husband's health insurance. <BR> <BR> My child has many severe medical needs.

I went with a couple from my church, and then did a few runs alone. I skied from approx 12:30pm until 3:30pm when the lifts close. I got out some nervous energy I was feeling about the recent suspension from my job. I need exercise in my life daily to relieve stress. I feel so much better after exercising than after eating out of stress. I also pray that tonight I will be able to sleep through the whole night instead of getting up at 2:00am because I am so used to get...

We went to Salt Lake, Utah and went to shriners hospital and got great news! Victoria's scoliosis treatment will be paid for 100%. Yay! Now, if I could run more to get in shape for this 10k coming up. I was going to do the half marathon, but I don't feel I am in shape enough for it. So I will run the 10k in beautiful Glenwood Springs and try out the natural hotsprings pool at the end of...

I'll probably register for 2. This Monday I am trying to get a younger friend just to run while the dunk-n-dash is going on. I lent her my old nike chip running shoes that hopefully she will try this weekend. She has been a smoker most of her life, but she is only 28 years old. She said she timed herself and did approximately a mile in 8 minutes which is really, really good. I am hoping she will do a 5k with me and give up smoking and be ...

I try to run in the evenings (not every evening) and do between and hour and two hours of yoga in the early morning (not every morning).
