Lydia's Pennies Anchorage, Alaska, United States I am a single mom of three wonderfulkids ages 17, 15, 14 and a new grandaughter I am helping my daughter raise. While I am not the perfect family I fully support my family without the assistance of government aid. My family struggles daily with a teen who suffers from bipolar disease and ADHD which makes life challenging at times. I enjoy watching my kids participate in sports and other school activities. I try to live frugal and struggle at times. I thought having a blog would help me share my trials and tribulations with others who might be going through the same things like dealing with a teen pregnancy. In addition I hope to share my experiences living in Alaska. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, watching movies, attempting to quilt (still learning), playing on the computer and being with friends. I look forward to meeting everyone and hope we can share ideas, thoughts, and whatever else comes to mind.
