Wow! Just when I needed a boost…



I was having one of those days. You know the one- I am fighting a cold, sinuses, allergies or all of the above. I’m still running around like crazy attending Andy’s last music/high school events. I’m not feeling every effective at any level and then there it is! I was nominated for this award for being inspiring and it just made my day! Thank you so much to Bob and Emily for nominating me! I certainly don’t feel very inspirational these days but I’m giving it my best shot!

Here are 7 things about me-

1. I absolutely LOVE That 70’s Show. It takes me back to my teen years and seeing the décor and fashion just makes me laugh. Who can’t love Kitty? She’s the ultimate kick-ass mom, in my book!!

2. I am terribly pale with freckles. The glare from my legs now in mid-May will be the same at the end of August. I do not tan. I burn, peel and fade back to my original color. Sometimes my freckles get darker but that’s about it. I have given up the fight. I wear dresses and blind everyone with my lily white legs and I just don’t care anymore.

3. I traumatized my husband and two of my children (mid teens at the time) by forcing them to watch Rocky Horror Picture Show as a family.

4. I used to play the piano and I would love to start it up again. Unfortunately I would need a teacher for that and I’m not sure I’m up for that.

5. I am a Taurus. That means I am stubborn, loyal and slow to burn- when I finally lose my temper, watch out!

6. I rarely remember my dreams. My husband and middle child, however, have full length Technicolor motion picture dreams that not only last hours, but also take hours to recount.

7. I love Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I especially love Magic Kingdom. Every single time I have gone to Epcot it has rained. Not just rain but a torrential downpour that lasted for most of the day. It’s some strange curse I carry with me. We’ll see what happens when we are there next month!

    1. I have to admit no one has ever mentioned liking my paleness- more like tolerated it.
