View Profile



I am 55, have been married for 34 years, and my husband is my best friend. We have four children
: a 26 yr old and three 24 year old g-b-g triplets. Our oldest son is married and has a beautiful 17 month old daughter who is the joy of our lives. Two of our triplets still live with us, and we provide meals and assistance for my in-laws, who live one hour away. I work full time as a speech pathologist. In my spare time I enjoy reading, knitting, and visiting with friends and family.
