These are the things you should know about me. First, I am a Christian. I believe this planet is only the beginning ~ I look forward to an eternity with the ones I love honoring the God of creation. That said, I am a fat 58 year old grandma of 16 beautiful grandchildren, mother of 6 sons (one went to be with the Lord at age 24...way too soon), mother-in-law (or mother-in-love) to 5 wonderful ladies, and the woman who loves her "GoodMan" more than words can say.
On July 15, 2009 my physical world changed. I fell and hurt my knee while climbing the Dunn's River Falls in Jamaica. After multiple surgeries, including a knee replacement, I still do not have full function of my right leg. Since that time I've had 4 bouts of cellulitis - the last time hospitalized for 9 days - which brought about a diagnosis of chronic venous insufficiency in both legs.
My health issues along with a number of other life (and death) changes brought me to the decision to retire in May 2011 from my job as the Accounts Coordinator for a busy optometrists office so that I can spend more time with my husband and allowing me time to travel and see my "grands". This extra time has also given me the opportunity to address my weight and mobility problems.
I love to read, love to travel, and love my family ~ not necessarily in that order.
