Jennifer from northern Arizona. JosÚ from Costa Rica. We currently live in the Arizona desert, a Phoenix suburb, and we have a small, I repeat SMALL, house in Costa Rica. Jennifer - 52, JosÚ - 60. We have 6 kids, 1 in California and 5 in Costa Rica. We have 12 grandchildren, 2 grandchildren who came into our family by marriage, 1 great granddughter and another great grandchild on the way.
I manage the office of a window manufacturing company. I've been there since before dirt was invented! ! JosÚ is a waiter. Our one pet is Oscar the Shih Tzu and he is such a lover and good companion! We love to cruise, but it's hard for JosÚ to get away, so we don't go as often as we'd like. We do try, however, to get away for occasional 2 or 3 day weekends. Even a mini vacation is bvetter than no vacation!
