I’m a 38 year old woman with Chronic Lyme Disease, which presents like fibromyalgia, arthritis, and peripheral neuropathy.  In layman’s terms that means chronic pain combined with numbness in my hands and feet.  Woo-hoo!  In my free time I read and review books, make beaded and wire looped jewelry, and spend far too much time on the computer.

Our family includes my 3 daughters, BG, 11, MG, almost 9, and LG, 5 1/2.  We homeschool, participate in a homeschool coop, and do lots of other fun activities.

Our family lives with Celiac Disease, so I cook almost everything we eat.  I’ve created or adapted some great recipes that  taste good even if you don’t have allergies!  The recipes are over at my Recipe Box: The Gluten Free Family.

Rounding out the family are our pets – 1 dog and a cat.  Ra is a 1 year old red Australian Cattle Dog, who is temporarily staying with friends.  Yuki is a calico cat who has held her own with the dogs, and makes a great neck-warmer.

Enjoy your visit!
