2012: I'm gramma to 2 amazing, lively, and intelligent twin grandboys, born in 2003, and to one amazing grandgirl who was born in March, 2011. I want to be healthy so that I can be in their lives for a good, long time.
I am married, in my mid-60's, retired, with my primary residence in Oregon, USA. Currently, I am primary caregiver to my mother, who lives in Arizona, and who will be reaching the milestone of 90 years old later in 2012. I am indeed fortunate to have the flexibility in my life to do the things I want to do and to still be available to assist my mom.
I prefer to think of the glass as half-full rather than half empty but that does not mean I am a pollyanna - far from that. I have struggled with my weight and depression for most of my life. It has only been in the last 5 years that I feel I have finally learned to come to happiness with myself.
2013 Update: No longer being the primary caregiver to my mom as she has moved to assisted living. Finally, I can get back to having a more normal mother-daughter relationship with her. I'm going to turn 65 this year and want to be healthier for myself. I plan to live a good long time and I want to be totally in each and every moment of this life.
