I am a 56 year old Christian widow from Illinois. I am thankful to still have both of my parents and enjoy spending time with them as well as my brother's family. I enjoy antiquing, flea markets, scrapbooking, working in my yard and decorating projects, although as the weight has gone higher, my desire to do much of anything has dwindled.

Other Information:
I love cats, but for the past two years have not have any. But I always click on SP who have cats in their profile picture. Maybe one of these days I'll have another one.

Thanks for stopping by my page!

I see you like cats, but don't have one right now (or at the time you wrote that)...maybe a new kitty would make a great reward for one of your goals!
