I am a middle-aged, homemaker. I no longer work due to chronic migraine disease. I would love to increase my vocabulary as I do have a love for the English language and also a respect for it. I feel that I am becoming quite sluggish lately with it and want to do it justice. I am an empty nester and have 3 dogs that have sort of replaced my need for children. They are a huge part of my life. I am married to an amazing husband of 33 years. He is The Director of Engineering at the company where he has worked for the past 30 years. As I have alluded to in the 'favorite word' category, I adore nature. I also love rookie photography....photographing my dogs and also nature in general. My husband and myself are involved in a large church. Especially, the music ministry part of it. Jim is the senior minister of music and I am his sidekick. I also help to take care of my elderly mother who lives with my brother and sister-in-law.
