Well, another year has come and gone.

About me: I'm a stay at home mom of two girls, and I substitute teach at their schools. I'm 40. I've been over-weight since before I got married in my mid-20's. I lost down to 145, but I've gained back up to 170 plus (depends on the day). BUT... This is the year of NO EXCUSES. I've got to get back to exercising and get this weight off!

Until recently, I cared for my grandmother in my home. She has Alzheimer's and has heart troubles. She kept falling, and I was afraid that she would get hurt worse than a few bruises. I chose a nursing home that was close to the school so I could check on her every day. However, after she had to go to a special facility to get her meds under control, my uncle moved her without my knowledge to a home an hour away. Now, I cannot afford to go see her like I want to. More importantly, my little one (who was only 2 when Gran moved in with us) is missing her terribly and cries knowing that she cannot see her every day. Please pray for us as we deal with this loss.

On a better note: I'm an Independent Consultant for a national beauty product company. I am looking forward to having more time to spend on the business. I'd love to share the products and ideas with you. So PM me if you'd like to know more.

    I know what you mean about working. I actually worked the first day of school because a teacher had riden with her son to Wheatly in IL. He went there last year but did not have a car and so they allowed him to take one this year. She did not want him to drive it by himself so she went up with him and could not get a flight back in time for her to be at school for half a day. The first week I worked 2-1/2 days and then last week I worked 3. I have one for Thurs. but I have my car in the shop and I am not sure when I will get it back. Your daughter's picture is really good. She is very pretty.
