Some Things About Me…

…besides being a writer, runner, mother, blogger, runDisney addict, small business owner, rental property manager, and obsessive list keeper.

1.) I think that lying about your age is a disrespect to yourself. And while I’m not a fan of my wrinkles, I don’t envy 25 year olds. If anything, they should envy me because I’ve already been 25 … plus 25 more!

2.) My husband and I have been married for over twenty-seven years. He’s my best friend and biggest supporter so while my writing career might suck at times, marriage is one thing I got right!

3.) We have two wonderful boys, one of whom is still in college and the other engaged to an amazing gal with a September wedding date! I miss them desperately but I’m trying to not be one of those pestering moms who text their kids every day. (Emphasis on try.)

4.) I have a pen fetish.

5.) And a total planner addict. Right now, I’m loving my Erin Condren planner!

6.) Have I mentioned my runDisney addiction yet? Yet, it’s pretty bad.

7.) I love musicals. Sometimes I wish I could sing I Dreamed a Dream like Patti LuPone or Another Suitcase in Another Hall by Elena Rogers. Sometimes my husband wishes I’d stop trying.

8.) Scrubs is still my favorite TV show. EAGLE!!!!

9.) I used to be a cocktail waitress at a dive redneck bar where a motorcycle gang often frequented. One day, I will write a book series about this. It shall be scandalous.

10.) I also used to be an actress. Well … okay, more like one of those hired costumed characters at mall holiday parades during my broke college days. (Memories of being terrorized as a candy cane by rowdy high schoolers still haunt me at night.)

11.) Sometimes when I’m struggling with a scene, I image Tim Gunn comforting me. Or if I really need a kick in the butt? A screaming Jon Taffer.
