I'm sure that you've noticed me hanging around by now, so I figured I should introduce myself and see if I can sit at your table ...
This is my second wedding, FI's first. We're planning a ceremony/reception at a family member's cottage on the lake for next August. I have two kids, ds is 12 and dd is 9. Dd lives with us and ds wants to live with his dad - tough for me, but it's his call. We all get along, but distance is the thing. I moved for work last year, so I'm now a two day drive from ds, and miss him terribly, but love where we are living now.
We're both teachers and go back to school next week. I'm starting in a new school (high school English and other subjects - will find out tomorrow what they will be), and FI teaches at middle school. We live in a northern community of about 7500 people, and there is nowhere to shop for the wedding. We just bought a house and are building a shed/garage in the yard. We're doing it ourselves, and trying to get as much of it done as possible before we go back to work.
Other than that, I love to read, just wrote my first novel, am big into snowmobiling, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and am learning to golf. I hang out on the Getting in Shape board mostly because I've got 15 to go - have lost 40 so far.
So that's me. Can I hang out here with the cool kids???
