I was born in the Midwest but I have actually lived more of my life on the West Coast. I am looking forward to that day when I once again am living in the Midwest. Hopefully that will mean that I am retired and getting to live life at a bit of a slower pace!
I’ve been married to the same guy for 36 years! We met when he was working as an assistant to the trainer for a semi-pro hockey team and I was a ticket agent selling tickets to the games. He also played hockey at an amateur and college level and I think I fell instantly in love when we went ice skating together and he saved me from crashing when someone behind me fell (I was skating backwards, he was skating forward, so we were facing each other) and he reached out with his big, strong arms and grabbed both of my upper arms and just stopped me dead in my tracks to make sure I didn’t fall over the person. Lots of electricity! My Hercules!
I have two children, a son and a daughter.
My daughter is a public school teacher. She has taught both elementary school and high school English. Currently she is teaching 5th graders and having a blast. She has a joy and passion for teaching and loving her students that is not seen in many teachers these days. She truly found her calling.
I have this blog because I thought it would be nice to have a place that I could share what is going on in our lives and I also just love to tell stories. I’m not a writer per se, but I do love a good story. Even if it’s just a short little quip!
