I've raised two husbands and then let them go on to other endevors. i have four daughters and five grandchildren and hopefully no great grandkids yet.So at this point in my life it's just myself and my very talkative parrot and my dog Otis and my 46 tenants and now I have Zarr. All this and also a lifelong Diabetic and have faught a lifelong battle with my weight.I know ill never be a size 8.so I constantly am looking for low-carb ideas. I sew, knit, paint miniatures,and collect recipes and love to travel.
