Hi Teresa...I'm in Las Vegas but from Hillsboro. They (the very nice people here) let me hang out in here LOL.

My daughter works in the same field in a group home in Hillsboro. It used to be run by Good Shepard but a new company has it now. She also works long hours. I'm very proud of her.

Welcome to SP!!

Hi,

I am new to this part of the site. I started with SP last year and have not stuck with it as well as I had hoped. I need to stick to it this time.

I have 3 teenage daughters and a 10 year old son. Life is crazy around here sometimes. I let it get to me and then I don't care so much about me.

I live near Roseburg, OR.

Hi Teresa!
I'm glad to welcome you again to our Oregon team. We are trying to encourage more of our members to post and get to know each other. I believe you are in Albany and know we have at least 2 other members there...you may already know them. Maybe you're all close enough to each other that you could actually meet.

My name is Teresa and I am 41 years old. I live in Oregon, have never been married and have no kids. I am an olny child as well but I am not spoiled LOL.

I have been a Christian since 1996 after my dad passed away suddenly from a heart attack on Feb 14th of 1996.

Shortly after I became a Christain God called me to Bible College at Salem Bible where I earned an associate degree in religion and then I transfered to Eugene Bible College where I recieved my BS in Christain counseling. It is a degree that I can not use here in Oregon as a Masters degree is required so I have not gone any farther with my schooling. I do not feel the pull of God in that direction right now so it is on hold.

I have worked in the healthcare field for 22 years now. I began working as a CNA in 1985 in a nursing home but my heart has always been with the MRDD(mentally retarded developmentally disabled) population. So I began working off and on in group homes as well as nursing homes over the last 22 years. I currentally work in a group home as a 1:1 caregiver for a young man(Joe) with CP who is confined to a wheel chair......It is a great job and I really love taking care of Joe. There are 10 people who live at Mumford house......I put a photo album on the site so you can see pics of the guys I care for.

I work long hours most days of the week.....I always have Sunday, Monday and Tuesday off .......my typical work hours are 1p-11p(except of Wednesday where it is 930a-6p)......My saturday shift is 830am-11pm(yes that is 14.5 hours LOL)......so there are days when I am unable to even get on the computer to do anything as I am at work for more hours than I am home to even sleep LOL.....But I do LOVE my job!

I love animals and have 2 cats BUT they can not live with me due to a NO PET policy where I live. Places that allow pets I can not afford so my mom has taken my cats in to live with her. I miss them alot but we live close by each other so I can see them as much as I want to. I use to have 3 cats but Tasha passed away this year at age 17.

Blessings!

Grants Pass is 26 miles Northwest of Medford, right off of the I5, and Wilderville is nine miles Southwest of Grants Pass on the coast highway, 199. Wilderville is actually just a general store, Pizza cafe and Methodist Church. The community is quite old, however, so we have our own zip code. We moved fron Grants Pass four years ago because we wanted some land for our boys to play on.

Terri, WAY TO GO!!!

I have fallen off the wagon a couple of times in the year or so since I joined sparkpeople...but I have to keep getting back up there, right?

Glad to have you around.

Hi Steph and welcome to the Oregonians for Health and Wellness.

I know in the past some folks have gotten together for hiking, coffee etc. In fact, during the spring and summer the group would meet up about every other month in different parts of the state.

Where are you from? I encourage you to post on the main thread. I'm sure with fall/winter here that folks might be interested in getting together for indoor activities.

Hello Oregonians. I just began SP this week and am enjoying it and think it might be just what I need to get on a program and get fit and healthy. I am from Albany, for the time being but will probably relocate to NE Oregon within the next 6-9 months. I am nearing retirement you see and have another journey of my life to look forward to - - just another reason to be the best I can be so I can enjoy all this life has to offer. I am so glad you are here with your great motivation.

Hi Amy,

Welcome to the team. I live in Salem as well. Probably my biggest challenge is actually staying motiviated. It seems much easier to cheer others on than to do it myself. But that's what this team is for, to cheer each other on.
