Hello! I'm originally from Illinois/Iowa and moved to Colorado in 1983 to find work. I've been married 20 years, 49, with 2 adult children and grandmother to 3 grand children and just found out one more is on the way! We have a 14 year old cat, and a 8 month old rescued puppy. For fun I love to read romance novels and to look thru old cook books, the older the better. Biggest pet peeve's are liars and people who don't do what they say they are going to do. I like to meal plan and I know I am going to shock you when I tell you all that I love to go grocery shopping! How weird is that? My family is like fudge, mostly sweet, with a few nuts!
