||Reading, shopping in thrift stores and used book stores for good books, shopping for the perfect purse and comfortable shoe, watching TV, (Steve, Ellen, recently Wendy) and SCI-Fi (hate zombie and super scary movies), History and News.
||I was born in Portsmouth, VA and raised in Philadelphia, PA by my grandmother. Was a terrible teenager. I moved back to VA when I was 23. I claim the south for my origin. Was Caretaker for my mother and mentally challenged sister. After my mother died I have continued caring for sister which is a challenge. She is 68, looks 38, healthier than everyone in the family and loves to be catered to while she watches TV all day. I am a mother of three, a grandmother of six. Spent 32 years in the Army Reserves and Active Duty. Was injured in a training accident in 06 while mobilized, spent 3.5 years in the Wounded Warrior program and was Medically retired as an active duty soldier in Oct 09. Graduated from college with a Bachelors in Management at the age of 54. Finished my last class while recovering from a craniotomy. I might work on my Masters in the near future. I doubt if I use it. It is a personal goal. I babysit five of my grand children daily (aged 6-13) Help! I am a disabled veteran and a member of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization. I am qualified to assist veterans file claims for compensation for potential disabled veterans. I enjoy doing this especially when their claims are approved and they receive a check every month. The DAV organization also assists veterans down on their luck by paying electric bills, buying food, paying for a place to live be it mortgage, rent or hotel bill. I love retirement,disabled veterans, my grandchildren, children and sister!
