What a great idea. :)
Hello. I live in Wichita, Kansas by way of Great Falls, Montana, by way of Izmir, Turkey, and before that San Antonio, Texas. I'm an Air Force brat married to a former Air Force career man and I have been an MT since 2001.
My hobbies are reading, and tennis, but don't do much pleasure reading right now because I'm taking the coding course, which I started April 30, and I'm now in Module 2, and enjoying it immensely. I also wish I had done this years ago.
I am 56 years old. I lift weight lift at the base gym 4 days a week. We live an eat clean lifestlye (no processed food, white flour, sugar, etc - if it doesn't rot we don't eat it) and I stay extemely focused on sticking to my exercise and eating clean regimen which has helped immensely with staying focused while studying.
My hubby is from New Haven, CT and I'm from Dayton, Ohio. We have 4 wonderful children and 6 grandchildren. Two boys (38 and 31) and 2 girls (27 and 25). My boys are both married with kids. Our eldest daughter is a neuroscience grad student at Wesleyan College doing stem cell research on mice. My "baby" is finishing up her dual art history and Spanish major degree here in Wichita.
We have 2 dogs from the same litter (half Austrailian shepherd and half border collie). They require a lot of exercise and we walk them 3 to 4 days a week, 3 miles each day, as long as it's not too hot for them. We also have 2 cats, a Maine Coon male, and an orange tabby male who acts like a Maine Coon. :D And 2 fish, a plecostomus that's about 7 inches long now and an African Ciclid who has killed all our other fish (pet store error - was told NOT an African ciclid), so they're in a split tank.
And one other thing we're doing is remodeling our house to sell it, so we can move somewhere in the northeast, preferrably somewhere where federal pensions aren't taxed. We're currently putting flooring down in our living room and dining room. Sigh.
