I'm a mother of a 13-year-old and married for 19.5 years. I love to cook, even though I'm not very good at it. I'm on my third round of dialysis after my third kidney transplant called it quits after 8.5 years (I lost my kidneys, due to strep, when I was 16). I love all of the fine arts (theatre, painting, sculpting, music, dancing, drawing), writing fiction, archaeology (bachelor's degree), Basset Hounds (I have 2, my boys), gardening, and sports of all sorts. I'm sure there's more, I just can't think of any more right now.
