I have a child care center, it keeps me on my toes. Kids are fantastic and I am honored to be involved with the early stages of their little lives. I've been married to the "Hubs" for almost 37 years. We have three kids, Drew, Dear, darling Fred and the Princess. I love my life, no matter what! I am also the worlds biggest Chicago Blackhawks fan..... no, seriously, I am.
