Graduated from the school of hard knocks and self reliance. Worked to provide for myself and my kids. Now, that I am a grandma, I'm giving serious thought to what I want to be when I grow up. I want to do something that will engage me and makes a difference in the world. I am curious about how things work and the world about me. I'm running out of time to learn it all and leave this planet a little better place for my kids and grandkids.
