21 Things About Me

  1. My favorite title is ‘Mom.’ My children continuously amuse and amaze me.
  2. People assume that I’m good with computer hardware, cables, etc. I’m not. I rely on my children to operate our ‘entertainment’ system.
  3. I’m not a frosting kind of gal. Nope, not in any kinda way.
  4. I hold my friends dearly.
  5. In my somewhat vivid imagination I see myself as a live-off-the-grid, vegan, home-schooler kind of gal. In reality I’m a technology embracing, drive-through, latte-drinking, happy to write a check to my housekeeper woman.
  6. Kindness is the quality I’m most attracted to in others.
  7. I am an insomniac.
  8. I hate gratuitous violence in films. And yet the The Sopranos Breaking Bad is probably my all-time favorite television show, Fargo threw me into a laughing fit I barely recovered from, and I was in the Natural Born Killers ‘love it’ camp. But really, I don’t like violence.
  9. I no longer watch television. (Too much frosting!)
  10. Working in my garden makes me very, very happy.
  11. People who don’t think for themselves scare me. Which brings me to…
  12. I’m not a fan of religiosity. But…
  13. “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you,” really is golden in my mind.
  14. I’m easily bored with chit-chat. Unless drinking a martini.
  15. I have a younger sister who died at 30 years of age. It was the most surreal, heartbreaking, awful thing that I’ve ever experienced. But, it helped me to appreciate the value of life and living well, which changed me for the better I think.
  16. The political theatre of our times both intrigues and repulses me. I can’t stop staring.
  17. I happen to think my ‘wasted youth’ was well spent.
  18. I can be dangerous in an argument, as I almost always understand the other person’s points of view.
  19. I am lucky.
  20. Sunsets are well worth chasing in my book.
  21. My husband changed my story and I love him with all my heart.
