<p>I am a very positive person. I love to laugh and I love to be very busy throughout my days...I also love&nbsp; my down time when I have some. I am a widow with to young boys. Trevor will be 18 this year and Travis just turned 10. I love to read a good book, work in the yard and I love a clean house.&nbsp; My dogs name is Zoey a yellow lab that could very well be related to Marley the dog in &quot;Marley and Me&quot;. She is a funny dog a puppy that never wants to grow up even though she is 5 years old in people years.&nbsp; That's 35 in dog years so they say.<br /> <br /> I am always dieting and I hate it.&nbsp; I am stuck at a weight right now that I really need to work harder if I want to lose more, the problem is that I really dont have the time or the energy to work out.&nbsp; My days are full of work and kids and house and taking care of my mother who is a colon cancer survivor. Her problem now is that she is suffering from depression really bad and its very hard to deal with her and my busy schedule. <br /> <br /> My husband died in Jan 2008. He dealt with a long battle of MS. Its not the MS that killed him it was Pneumonia. He was in a wheelchair for most of our marriage. I knew he had the MS when we got married. He was diagnosed about a year after we were engaged. He said to me that I could walk away if I wanted to. But I didn't. So three years into the marriage he went into a wheelchair and never came out of if. It was very hard to take care of him.&nbsp; He was 6'7 and he weigh about 235. I am 5'6 and about 180 give or take a few pounds. I have big bones so I really dont look that bad, or so I have been told.&nbsp; I have a big butt they run in my family.&nbsp; Anyway needless to say the marriage was hard and the days were long. I have always keep a full time job outside of the home even with my husbands disease hanging&nbsp; over&nbsp; my head from day to day.&nbsp; <br /> <br /> I was not able to get pregnant because I was not fertile although the whole time trying with a specialist I was in denial that it was my fault and that I blamed my husband.&nbsp; Well my eggs were no good.&nbsp; So for the first child we didn artificial insemination with fertility meds and believe it or not I got pregnant on the first try and with my own eggs.&nbsp; That was Trevor... The second child was alot harder to have and cost alot more money.. I used my sisters eggs. And with my husband sperm and artificial insemination on the first try we have Travis.</p>
