I just completed something really difficult for me. After 20 years, I went back to school and renewed my teaching certificate. I didn't know my brain could still learn, take tests, and write papers! It is amazing what you can do when you just press forward and just do it.

Now that this goal is accomplished, I realized it can't be much different than completing my long standing goal to get healthy. If I plan on going back to teaching little ones, I need energy, strength, and a sharper mind. I need to do this!

So, here I am, again. Tired, achy, and heavy. Not for long!

    Many thanks for deciding to join the "100 Days of Summer Challenge 2012' Spark team. I am the founder and co-leader of the group. We think we may be the most active and vibrant team on all of Spark, with a diversity of different things all going on at the same time, and well over 100 active members.

    While day-to-day operations are delegated to the capable hands of co-leaders Gail (ECOAGE) and Becca (XRSIZE18), if every I can be of any assistance to you in any way, please feel free to help. And yes, the two kids on the group home page shot are my genetic clones, who let me live with them and allow me to spend unending dollars catering to their every whim!

    Thanks again for joining us!
