Everyday small choices lead to everyday small victories!

At 48.5, I'm determined to get my health back. I've struggled with injuries and physical limitations, but seeing age 50 on the not-so-distant horizon only shores up my resolve!

I have 2 grown kids (yep, I'm an empty nester) and a perfect grandson who was born 12/27/2013! I'm a bridge inspector and office administrator. I'm a cradle Catholic and a knitter. I have been in a relationship with my very significant other for a dozen years.

Personal Information:
I'm from a very small Texas town. I've lived in the big city - and I love this way of life. It has its disadvantages, but they are FAR outweighed by its advantages.

I have a daughter in college, studying biology (forensic medicine), and a son who's a musician in Lubbock, Tx.

Other Information:
I'm a voracious reader. I always have one book in progress on my Kindle or in paper form, AND one in progress in audio form. I listen to books as I drive and as I get ready for work in the morning.
I'm a somewhat new knitter. I like to make scarves because they're mindless and satisfying, but I rarely wear them myself.
