WHEW.......... I am worn OUT from reading your post! You are one busy lady! Imagine that, a vegetarian liberal, WHO KNEW!? You'll find this group to be made up of mostly MENSA members( or at least it seems that way, VERY intelligent group of people) WELCOME!
Hi JMHEART, & welcome to the team. Just jump into the fray ... uh, discussions anywhere ...
“Cowardice asks the question, 'Is it safe?' Expediency asks the question, 'Is it politic?' But conscience asks the question, 'Is it right?' And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I live on beautiful Kauai, teach 5th grade, just started my own business, will host an exchange student this year and plan to lose weight. This last year I injured my back (improved 90% thank you), but do to changes in activity gained weight that I kept off for years. My house is tiny (remember home business and student), so I have limited space for my balance ball, weight ball routines, but I want to do them again. I am vegetarian, at times vegan and do not like dairy or tofu. Complimentary protein is not problem. Two days a week I cook healthy meals after school with 4th and 5th graders and the other two days a week I will be working in our newly establish school garden. I am also a registered nurse (25 years).In addition I have been teaching for 16 years (can you say "layered life "). I am a mom to 3 children on the mainland all in their 30's and I miss them everyday. How did I get to Kauai? Long story, but I like this journey. I'm not Hawaiian, but live in this beautiful aina (land). Another passion of mine is writing (plays, music and can you tell message boards? I stick to commitments and this site actually may help me. Your turn to talk with me.
