I'm a mom of 2 daughters, wife of 40 yrs, (same husband, same house ), gram to 3, and a retired nursing instructor. I worked in ICU and taught LPN and CNA students for 34 yrs. I was diagnosed with lupus in 2005 and retired on SSD in 2010. My DH and I live in a small house on a little lake and help our kids with babysitting as much as we can. I love to quilt and knit, and read. I am addicted to my iPad and love sitting on my porch with mint tea and a book.
