I never know what to say on these "About Me" pages. Do I talk in the 3rd person describing myself on how I want you to see me
or is this just a Braggadocious autobiography?
This is what I have come up with...
I've been with Blogger since 2006 with various "niche blogs". Before that, I blogged on Xanga and Yahoo 360. I've been blogging since the late 1990s.
I'm a private person.
I'm not a big talker which makes me a good listener.
I'm content and happy.
I was a Daddy's girl - I get along better with men than I do with women.
I enjoy quiet and nature.
I live in California and I won't apologize for that.
I'm a senior citizen and I'm fine with that, too.
I've been married to my second husband for 22 years.
I have 3 sons and 2 stepdaughters who are adults now.
After my husband and I first married, we lived in our 34-foot motorhome for 4 years to pay off my divorce attorney debt and save money. (We lived in a "trailer park" just down from Facebook.
(Do I have stories from that experience)
I do not have any grandchildren and please do not pity me. I've worked it out and I'm fine with it - I am happy for you who have grandchildren.
I was once a single divorced Mom, raising 3 boys in Silicon Valley. I lived off Food banks, and Church Charities just to make ends meet. We bought our clothes at the Salvation Army and Goodwill before it was popular to do so.
I was a stay-at-home Mom and will never be ashamed of that.
I worked at Macy's in the evenings, was a Nanny, taught Preschool, and ran my own Daycare in my home for 16 years. It was pure joy to raise other people's precious little ones. I can't tell you how many children I have potty-trained!
I still dream of those days - I loved working with children and young parents and playing with children all day. It was a fun time in my life.
I love not working!
I was not raised in a Christian home that went to church every Sunday. I found Christ when I was 33 years old.
I was rebellious before coming to Jesus. I was the girl, your mom didn't want you running with.
That's all I can think of. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
I may or may not answer them if they are too invasive but I think I have shared quite a bit, in little sequences to give you a rough idea who I am.
