My husband and I have five children, so I know the difficulties of raising a family in today's economy and with both parents working. I like to read and write a blog when I have any spare time.
I spend most of my free time with my family including my extended family, my mother, brother, ans sister-in-law. I love to travel when I have the time and money.
