1. Married my husband two weeks after our first date

2. I'm an obsessive reader - novels, inspirational, technical journals, textbooks, cereal boxes, junior fiction, encyclopedias, philosophy, auto manuals - if it's in English, I'll read it

3. My "thing" is Bible study - every day, as much as I can

4. I'm such a categorizing/organizing freak that I enjoy volunteering at the library to scan the shelves and make sure all the books are in the right order.

5. Three wonderful kids: 25, 19, and 15 years old.

6. Two adorable grandchildren: Tavin is 3 years old and Lyla will be 1 at the end of June.

7. I have a degree in Family Psychology, and have ended up thinking most of it is a bunch of crap.

8. I was "little Kelly" until I was 30 years old. Fifteen years after starting my weight problem I still have a hard time not thinking of myself as "the little one."

9. Diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes April 4th this year - 1.5 weeks after I decided I'd better do something about my health.

10. I use a lot of words. LOL!

10 Things About Me:

1 I am a young at heart 57 (who…me?)

2 I have 20 to 30 pounds to lose. I was 20 pounds less from about 2002-2008 thanks to Dr. Atkins and was Ok with that. But I was 10 pounds less than that before I had my kids.

3 I am mother to 2 boys, 19 and 25. The best years of my life were spent being their homeschooling, SAHM. I also have a stepdaughter who is 27 and due to have her first child September 4th 

4 I’ve spent the last 8 years single. Who’d have thought…the most important thing to me was to have a happy family. Life is just weird

5 Perhaps as a result of #4, I’ve grown to love Desperate Housewives, Big Love and the Real L Word…is there a theme in there anywhere?? Also Project Runway and various home/yard renovation shows

6 I have a job in hospitality that I *love*

7 Love to see new sights. I’m all about road trips! Took my 19 year old to see San Francisco last month and went on a road trip with a (nearly) lifelong friend to SE Arizona 2 weeks later. Along that vein I get a lot of mileage out of new restaurants, too. Uh-oh.

7 One thing I hope to be able to do again someday is have a garden. I used to grow roses…flowers…veggies, melons, berries…miss my trees

8 I owned Australian Shepherds for about 20 years. Blue merles are my favorites. I still feel an emotional reaction when I see one around town.

9 I’ve always been kinda crafty: I sew, make earrings, and always have some search or project going on to improve the visual comfort of my home.

10 The least of what my life is/has been about is that I’ve been Type 2 diabetic for at least 17 years. I’ve kept my hbA1c’s under 6 since diagnosis. No diabetic damage…I’m a mad tester.

2. I have 7 grandchildren. Newest is 3 weeks old and 1 more is expected in November.

I also live in FL and am a nurse. I was checking posts and about 6 so far are nurses! It is frightening. I am also going to college to get my BSN(in 2 classes) and then my MSN. I have been a diabetic for a while but I am not a good patient.You know we are the WORST patients. I hope we can help each other since we have a lot in common.

5.like to read and crochet
6.enjoy dong things with my husband and son, they are very musical
7. I am just starting with spark
8.I too, and a nurse-pedi homecare
9. really commited this time, and leaning on God and all he provides me
10. have lost about 15lb with recent events in my life--2 surgeries in a month, and don't want to lose whatever momentum I have going

I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. Iknow what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. Ihave learned the secret of being content in any and every situation,whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Yet it was good of you to share in my troubles.

Hi I'm Ms-Melissa
OK Ten things:
1) I'm an expat American living in London for twenty-four years. I don't think I'll ever move back now.
2) Married twenty-three years to the Englishman who caused the move. I'd miss him terribly if he vanished from my life in the *long term* but a few days away would be nice.
3) We have an eleven year old son who is just a hoot! Love him loads.
4) Am still trying to come to terms with my diabetes diagnosis. It worries me. I wish I could just be in denial.
5) I am the full-time worker in our family (higher education).
6) I want to take some courses in reflexology, massage for the elderly and for cancer patients this Fall. I am interested in healing and other alternative health things.
7) I am a practising Christian; trying to get it right!
8) Even after nearly half a lifetime away I consider myself a Southern woman (raised in the South, always from the South.)
9) Skype makes is possible to live so far away from everyone else.
10) Sometimes when the extended family takes to fussing I really am glad to be a voice on the phone. ;)

Yes, storm chasing is a rush. I grew up in Oklahoma and lived another 40+ years in Texas--there's nothing like watching the clouds and tornadoes across the Great Plains. I've seen quite a few tornadoes, but lucky to have never had a direct hit (a couple blocks away). Don't get storms like that here in NC.

Blessings,
Pat

Welcome Studiotwo. I also like storms. As a matter of fact in June 2006 we were in Lincoln for my daughters soccer tournament when we had some bad storms roll in. When they came in we were at Dairy Queen buying her the blizzard she earned by making a goal in the game. Her half brother and his then girlfriend (now wife) were with us. The sirens started up while we were eating out treats. Nick & George went outside to look at the clouds. Niki, Bethannie and I joined them in a short while. The staff at Dairy Queen came tot he door and asked if we were coming in as they were locking the door until the warning ended. George and Nick said no so none of us went inside. We talked a little while and then it was decided to go storm chasing so we were off. We got some really neat pictures even though they were taken on our cell phones. The rest of Bethannie's team thought we were nuts when they found out about our going storm chasing. I was a little worried but Nick was taking meteorology classes so I figured he had a good idea of what types a clouds to stay away from and keep us save.

Welcome Studietwo! I love storms too! I never thought about photographing them. Hmm, could be a new interest for me to pursue!

I just joined this team a week ago, I know you're going to love it here as much as I do!

1. I am a Christian living NC at present.
2. Married 25 years, divorced 15. Single is better than a bad marriage.
3. I was in denial about having diabetes for the first two years after I was diagnosed.
4. I need to lose half my body weight.
5. I became disabled about 10 years ago and it has been a struggle to rise above "sedentary" on the activity scale.
6. My last child left the nest a few months ago, and now that I can truly be anywhere I want (within my financial limits) I don't know where I want to be.
7. My mind still lives in my thinner more active body--my body rebels when I want to do something it doesn't want to do.
8. I can hardly wait for spring--I love taking nature pictures.
9. I love watching stormy weather roll in, and photographing storms.
10. I am a quilter and used to own a quilt store.


Blessings,
Pat

I use to love to watch the storms when I lived in Texas, they were magnificent. I haven't seen any here in CA that were that spectacular.

You may have to buy two of each bear so that you can have one also. emoticon

as soon as I get off disability right now its not an option for me.
I love the beach.
Weight loss is very important to me because my doctor is pushing for weight loss surgery and I'm not having it.
That's why I'm so stress out that this weight is not coming off as fast as I like.
I'm not giving up though, learned that lesson.
OMG going to seven funerals is very stressful.
Congrats on getting your degree.
I'm sorry to hear about your husband.

I have a bachelors in Business Management emoticon with a strong background in accounting.

I got my degree the year I turned 40 and then I got married. It was a big year for me.

Stress - the stress of losing a spouse is mind boggling.

I remember going to 7 funerals over a two year period when I lived in San Diego. I think people at work thought I was using that as an excuse. It is stressful.

I hope things are leveling out for you.

Oh, I forgot, I also have 2 step sisters emoticon what an airhead. They are both married. The youngest is about 36 and she has 4 kids. The other one is 40, no kids.

When are you planning to move to Florida? I've never been there. I may invite myself over once you're there. emoticon

You started losing weight before your diagnoses, that's great.

Getting my diagnoses really made me take a look at my life also. It's really changed how I view food.
