About me

Introduction I am a 45 year old woman living in the Midwest. Living high on life involves ice cream, regular vitamin D therapy, a husband who "gets" my need to run and make winter visits to the beach, two imaginative and empathetic (twelve and fourteen-year old) boys who are turning into young men, an adopted girl doggy addition to the family from Oklahoma named Nova with Doby ears, and pushing heavy weights around the gym (I love to iron!). Happiness used to be being able to bench press my boys. Now my oldest can do more pull ups than me. Even though I'm not ready for the rapid fire changes teenagers have brought to my life, I'm loving every minute of it.

Lionesses have no manes. How do they know when they've grown up?

If you never act your age, no one will know how old you are. They might wonder WHEN you're going to grow up, though.
