I'm 52 years old.  I have 3 children, none of whom are married and I have no grandchildren.  My husband and I have been happily married for --- this is the hard part.  I'm terrible with numbers.  Let's see July 1984...26 years.  He's the most marvelous husband and father and soulmate. 


I've worked throughout most of my adult life in a number of different capacities -- from Administrative Assistant to the CEO of a chain of banks to my most recent job -- Manager of a Health Club.  I was laid off from that job about a year ago so that the owner  could hire someone who looked much better in spandex than I did.  The truth did hurt, a lot.  But it's ok -- I've gotten over it, really I have.  Besides, they were both very, very, very good friends, they were both married and the couples went to church together, etc.  Really, I'm over it -- completely.


At about the time of my "layoff", my last child went off to college leaving me twiddling my thumbs.  One day I was on the computer in an effort to fill the long hours of the day and for some reason started checking into blogs.  By the end of the day I had a blog.   So that's what I do now -- I'm a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and blogger!


Be Afraid...Be Very Afraid

Be Afraid -- Be Very AfraidWell, I didn't show you EVERYTHING that I got at the yard sales.  I got picture frames, plates, hot curlers, plaques,unique jewelry, curtains, metals and pins from various wars (really -- they're beautiful).  All these items together came up to about another $15.  OK -- more stuff that I don't need, right?  I'll just tuck it away for when I am ready to do that project or perhaps when I'm ready to list it on...more
