I’ve been married to the same man for 40+ years and have two grown children. I’m real, and I love to laugh. I sometimes have a warped sense of humor, and can swear like a trooper. I am a good listener, and have the patience of a saint (or so I’ve been told). Watch out though, if I am backed into a corner…I may just tear you to threads…so you’ve been warned 😉 There is a soft spot in my heart for the dis-advantaged and all animals.
After 37 years of employment, I finally retired. I actually get paid to stay home! In my spare time, I create greeting cards and I love to alter things. I have a ga-zillion favorite bookmarks for easy access to all of the creative inspiration out there.
I also love to travel. I’ve been to the four continguous corners of the United States…and plenty of places in between. The southwestern states are my favorite. I’ve been to the the Gaspe peninsula in Canada…and to Vancouver, British Columbia. I’ve traveled to Toronto a few times, and to Ottawa just a few years ago. Pretty neat, eh? My sister took me to Aruba once…her treat. I needed a little R&R…and she was there for me. I’ve ventured to Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England with my sister. And persuaded my daughter to cross the pond with me to Ireland. I was planning on going back to Ireland with my husband, he got his passport….but we’ve decided to put off our trip until the dollar gets stronger. So instead, we took off to Colorado, Utah, North and South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho. We rented a car with unlimited mileage! The United States of America really is a beautiful country…there is so much to see.
