I am a wife, mother of three, grandmother of one. I live in southeast Ga.I work at Belk department store, a job which seems to suit me.I love to read, garden, tools ( I love to piddle with small projects). I don't like being over-weight and wont make a commitment to change things---yet.I have a couple of health issues which I believe would go away if I would just get the weight off.I have a Sun Conure, three Boston Terriers and a Chihuahua. Oh, and a hermit crab.I have been on this site before and loved it. My information must have been lost so I'm starting over. This is a great place to come for realistic and frugal advice from real people.
