About hyacinth69

I am 60 years old and female. I have been a Registered Nurse for thirty-two years. Right now I work in the home at raising my fifteen year old son. He is virtual-schooled with K12 and Lawrence Virtual School out of Lawrence, Kansas and I love every minute of our time with them. I love dogs and have a miniature dachshund name Tae. He treats me like a queen. I have been married to Dan for almost 43 years. That's what I said, 43 years. Very hard, yet defining years to manage being married that long. I read a book a day and I am still in school working on my advanced degree.
