Proud, but not obnoxious, alum of Penn State (hubbie, too), with 2 teenage boys and a geriatric dog.
I'm also a stubborm Kraut (Dad's words) which has served me well during this very long war. In the words of the band Triumph, "Fight the good fight - every minute, every day ... It's worth the price we pay."
I have been married to my college sweetheart since 1983. Recently, he has taken on the duties of running a household with two headstrong teenagers. I don't envy him, because before too long the duties of full-time care giver will be added.
I am still working full time, but just barely due to being allowed to work from home 75% of the time.
I have been a trooper for more than 20 years, but the trooper is becoming pooped. I am thankful for the love and support of my family to keep me going.
