No matter what happens in life I continue to be full of energy with a fairly constant smile on my face. I like staying busy so I'm usually involved in two or three projects at a time. I find that I am less actively involved with my daughter's life, but am still there for her whenever needed...especially when asked to take care of her daughter. I remain interested and active with step-childrens' lives. The stepchildren are all grown, but I'm still their "Mom" by default and choice. I am also very active with my students at school and probably spend to much time planning lessons and activities for them. Some of my favorite activities have included volunteering at the local community theatre, biking, roller-blading, working on older cars, keeping up my yard, remodeling my house, and playing with my PC.
