My husband and I live in a small town not far from the greater Atlanta area.
In June of 2012 I retired from teaching, a career that I embarked upon in 1972. During those 40 years I taught full time for 26 years and was a stay at home mom for 14 years.
I did not start any type of exercise program until I hit some roadblocks in my 60s. I am not proud of that, but I am proof that it is NEVER too late to start taking care of yourself.
I love to spend time with my daughter, son-in-law and two granddaughters (ages 8 and 10) who live in the Atlanta area.
DH and I spend lots of time with my parents ( ages 86 and 89) who live 10 minutes away. They are needing more and more of our time & attention although they remain fiercely independent.
I love the tranquility of nature. Gardening and feeding the birds are my daily indulgences.
