About Me I married my high school sweetheart, we married in 1976 after our 1st yr of college (sped up date due to unplanned pregnancy), by the time we graduated from college in 1980, 4 yrs later, we had 2 little ones & I was pregnant with our 3rd. I'm a nurse & my husband a retired teacher, we have 4 grown children, all of whom are teachers. 3 of the 4 are married, our oldest son & his wife have 3 boys (ages: 6 yrs, 4 yrs & 3 yrs) & live nearby, our oldest daughter who is now a stay-at-home mom has 2 boys (4 yrs & 2 yrs) & she lives in Alaska, our youngest son & wife live about an hour from home, & our other daughter lives near the Twin Cities, about 3 hrs from home. I hope to retire in 6-8 yrs, & be able to spend more time with my family, charity work & maybe travel some.
