I am 60 years old. I am a wife,(40 yrs married) mother of four daughter(all married) and a grandmother of 6. My grandchildren range in age from 2 year to 12 years old. I enjoy knitting ,singing(gospel/hymns and 40s,50s & 60s) & reading. I am looking forward to being more physically active. Family is very inportant to me. Nothing beats watchin, talking with and playing games with my family. I want to be able to keep up with my family. My daughters and I scrapbook together.

My husband and family are very supportive. I had a Rt. knee replacement November 25, 2008 and am still recovering. I have much less pain to both knees since this surgery so I am now becoming more active.

    Hi, Donna....Haven't been in contact for a while so wanted to see how you are doing. From the other comments here, it sounds like you have had a rough time lately. Hope things are getting better.
    I am OK - just kind of a stressful couple of months helping my MIL get her house ready to sell and move to assisted living. She's been sick and in and out of the hospital a lot the past few months. Also taking care of a sick friend every day. We did get to my daughter's college graduation earlier in May so that was a very happy weekend. Weight has been going up and down a couple of pounds at a time but I am getting back to losing slowly now that the weather is better and I can walk outside. Not far with my bad knees but enough to make a little difference, I think. Hope you are still here on SP . Take care. Mary emoticon
