My name is Teresa, I'm sort of married to David (we got married in 84, divorced in 93 and we've been back together since 1997 without the paperwork) lol. I've got 2 grown children, a son-in-law and a 6 year old grandson. I've been a member of Sparkpeople off and on since 2006.

In August of 2013 I turned 50 years old. The scale in the corner of the bathroom had been glaring at me for over a year and when I finally stepped on it, it laughed and laughed. I was at my highest weight ever. 207 lbs on a 5' body is not good. I made a decision that day to change. I'm a work in progress, but I've lost 30 lbs so far.

Let me back up a minute, in 2009 I opened a yarn shop. It was so much fun, I met a ton of great people, started dying my own line of yarn. But it was a lot of hard work, 6-7 days a week, 10 hour days, missing out on so much of my family and friends. I made a huge decision to shut down the business and on March 20, 2014 I closed the doors. A huge weight and relief has been lifted off my shoulders. Before you panic, I haven't given up my love of knitting, just taking a short break.

I spend probably too much time on facebook. If you have a facebook account, look me up

    Hey, what are you doing today? Pam and I bought seven trash bags full of different textures of wool. some are course and some are much softer. This lady's step dad sells angora goats in texas for 70. each. I think pam is going to buy several. I think if you would have been with us today you would have been ready to put up a fence and start raising sheep and goats. also, her dogs were amazing. Komondor? and great pyrenese mix. they looked like big white golden doodles. except bigger and whiter. they looked like sheep. they were so cute and funny. i would want a couple of them too. she had a bunch of cats running around. australian shepard mix puppies too. Pam wanted me to get one for Mom and dad. I figured mom already has her hands full taking care of dad.
    talk to you later
