I am an absent-minded professor, an empty-nest mommy, an internet social media watchdog/liaison, a professional writer, an education advocate/critic, and a speaker. I do not suffer fools gladly, and I don't think you should, either. I believe in proper public behavior, good grammar, and fairies. I loathe political correctness, euphemisms, smokers, and people who let their kids run wild in public. I have not yet given up on my childhood ambitions of being an astronaut and a ballerina, and people with no sense of humor are very, very, very boring.
I love to bake (bread machines are for sissies), sew, quilt, read, and sing along to all kinds of music - especially Broadway, and except country. However, just because I DO sing doesn't mean that I SHOULD. My apologies to all within hearing distance.
Children are first. We are last. Period.
