My name is Sandra and Hubby and I are retired and live in northeast Indiana.
I retired from a major truck manufacturing company in 2002. And then for the next four years I worked as the Matron at the County Jail. THAT was definitely the most interesting job I have ever had!
I have been married for over 40 years to my soulmate, who I first fell in love with when I was 15 years old. We married when I was 19 and he was 20. He was a county police officer for 36 years, the last eight as Sheriff.
Our son retired as a Gunnery Sergeant after 20 years in the Marines. He and his wife and their teenage daughter and son moved from North Carolina to Oklahoma when he retired so that he could begin his post-Marine career with a major roofing manufacturer. But he has recently changed careers and is now a high school math teacher, and is LOVING it! Their oldest daughter is married to a young Marine. They have a little boy three and a little girl one. They live in North Carolina, but plan to move to be near her parents when his current enlistment is up in 2012.
Our daughter lives in the Chicago area with her three young girls. She is currently coaching 5th grade volleyball at her girls’ school and also coaches in a club volleyball league. She is the one who dragged me “kicking and screaming” to blogging and I’m so glad she did.
