I was born in Indiana and have lived in Michigan, Illinois, Florida and Georgia. Even after 23+ years in the South I still consider myself a Midwest girl who loves to play euchre and golf (thanks dad).
I am a wife, mother and sister.
I have used a Mac computer forever and we have
four seven at our house. I had an iPod before any of the kids and before iPods were cool.
Don’t be fooled by the calm, serene photo of my four children. While it is my favorite photo of all of them in one picture, it is a very old photo and they are not nearly as cute as they were then…at 31, 29, 29 and 21 they are simply our real kids with a real mom with real stories.
I am a severe head injury survivor. I get debilitating migraines and have since the 5th grade. The head injury has made them worse.
People tend to gasp when they learn I don’t drink and I never, ever have. Alcohol, that is. I do drink other liquids.
People also seem to gasp and become a bit judgmental when they learn I also don’t eat vegetables (like that’s worse than not drinking?!). Unless you consider potatoes and corn more than just another starch.
My husband and children do not eat vegetables either. I have checked and this is not a federal offense and you cannot make a citizen’s arrest.
I don’t miss winter but I like to visit the snow every couple of years.
I cherish my friendships and am pretty darn good at keeping touch. (Well except for in 2007, when I spent many months in what I affectionately refer to as “The Black Hole.”) I believe that my friends have or will forgive me for this lapse and that is why they are my friends.
I’m not very good at pretending everything is perfect and I usually don’t hang around people who
are act happy all the time. They scare me. If you already know me, you know that I stopped pretending everything was perfect a long, long time ago!
I collect quotes and recipes. I think it’s because I love words, paper and food. I plan to share both with you right here on this site.
I am not qualified to be a mother. I am qualified to tell you about the many life lessons I have learned about being an unqualified mom and working from home which I’ve done even before I birthed my first child.
I am a work-at-home mom.

Phew, you made it to the end!
Now do you understand what concrete random means?
