Thank you for visiting my site. I know there are too many web pages to count out in the world wide web so you sharing a few minutes with me means more than words can express.
Honestly, this is the most difficult page to write. It feels a bit like a blind date, like I’m sitting across from a complete stranger when the dreaded gauntlet is thrown. “So, tell me about yourself.”
Leaning more toward the introverted side of the spectrum, I usually meet that statement with a momentary pause while I ponder the situation. What exactly does he want to know? Does he want to know about my children? My professional accomplishments? My family of origin? My credit score? What is he actually asking? After all, how does one sum up a half century of life into a few concise sentences? I’ve never mastered that skill.
And so it is with this. I am befuddled! What can I share with you that will instantly sum up all that is me?
For the sake of brevity, let me give you a brief overview. I’m a single mom of two wonderful sons. I’m a novelist and freelance writer. I’m a veteran of the U.S. Army. I own a publishing business with my two best friends and we still like each other. I’m a daughter and a baby sister. I grew up in the country and while I’m perfectly comfortable visiting the city, my heart will always long for wide open spaces and the gentle breezes through the pine trees. I love the mountains. I can tolerate the beach. I enjoy sitting in random spots watching people. I’m organizationally challenged. I’m working to improve my organizational challenges. I hate bananas. I love ice cream. And chocolate! Chocolate ice cream with those little chocolate chunks is the best. I don’t own a pair of high heels shoes. I would break my neck and seriously injure those around me if I ever tried to walk in high heels shoes. I love the springtime when everything is in full bloom. I can’t breathe during the springtime when everything is in full bloom. Fall is awesome because of college football. I think about exercise a lot. I don’t exercise as much as I should. If given the opportunity to explore an old building, I’m all in. I haven’t always been happy with the hand life has dealt, but I am happy with the person I have grown to be. I like myself!
I’m exhausted and you know more about me than you probably wanted to know. Thanks for listening. I hope we can spend more time together.
