Me? You want to know more about little ol’ me? How kind of you to stop by.
First, let’s strike the “little” — I’m not little. I’ve never been little. I will never be little. I may one day be less than I am now; I have been twice before. For now, however, I am, shall we say, hefty. Not a particularly complimentary word, I know. Visions of loveliness it does not conjure. But I am lovely. I swear it, and so does Prince Charming, whom you will meet amongst my writings.
Second, let’s address the “ol'” — yes, I am of a certain age. If 40 is the new 20, then I am 25. Ish. Those blogs about how “you’re old if…”? I’m older than all of them.
Now, down to business:
I am a busy, busy woman: married, two adult children, one full-time career, two part-time businesses, this blog and some friends. That would be enough for some, I know. I acknowledge and am grateful for all that I have attained and achieved. Yet, I yearn for more: …to be “known.” …to be “heard.” …to be “something.”
What I do for a living:
Public Safety Dispatcher for the City of Rohnert Park — a sometimes stressful, but never boring job managing chaos in the friendly City of Rohnert Park in beautiful Northern California. My voice remains calm under any circumstances — in fact, I’ve won an award for it.
Bookkeeper to certain small business/property owners (by referral only) — my clients are special people whose loads I lighten so they can do the things they do best for others. One client has said, “You’ve changed the way I live my life.”
Independent Consultant for Tastefully Simple, which once you follow that link is pretty self-explanatory. From time to time I write about my cooking process and/or recipes. They will generally include a product or two from the Tastefully Simple line.
What I do for fun:
Write this blog. Read, particularly Stephen King and Dean Koontz but I dabble in other authors and genres as well. Bowl, weekly (and/or weakly, depending) in a league. Play cards with friends. Play poker on facebook (I only wish all that $$$ was real). Watch television and movies. You wouldn’t think I have the time… but I do.
What I want to explore:
The meaning of life. What happens after.
What I end up writing about:
Thanks for wandering by. Leave a little love; tell me where you’re from and what you’re looking for. Let’s sit on this bench by the path and chat awhile shall we?
