My Story:
Married and mother to 6 children. (most of them are grown) Two teen boys still at home, 2 children in the Marines, 1 child is a pharmacy tech, (goal to be a chemo tech) and 1 child in school for vet tech. My husband is a firefighter and owns his own construction business.

I have some arthritis in my hips and just noticing some arthritis in my hands and knees. I broke my ankle last year and recently had the plates removed from my ankle. Looking forward to my 2 hour walks again. I love to speed walk and hike. Cleveland Brown Fan!
