Okay, so that was really short, guess I should expand a bit.
Born and raised in Chicago, Catholic schools. Married and had a daughter and son. Moved to California in 1987 due to husband's job. Joined my local woman's club and have been very active in that for over 20 years. Am on the club's board this year.
I worked part time at the local YMCA for 7 years. Decided to retire from that in 2010. And that started my life going down a different path, which led finally in 2012 to my decision to leave my husband. The marriage was bad for a really long time, but decided to make the best of things as I didn't think I wanted to be alone. Looking back now, I know I should have made the break a long time ago. But hey, I will take whatever time I have left being much, much happier now.
My daughter had a baby girl 16 years ago, and she's my only grandchild so far. Daughter is divorced for a long time and lives not far away. Son has not married yet.
