Things you should know about me so that your life will be complete:

…I’m a wife and a pretty good mother of two boys, 17 and 20 years old. My husband is called The Big Nugget (rhymes with souffle) in my blog. The boys are Thing 1 and Thing 2.

…We live in Bloomington – a suburb of Minneapolis. Home to the Mall of America – where all your capitalist needs can be met. And needs to spin in circles until you throw up. Followed by a pedicure and massage.

…I make jewelry and then have the audacity to sell it on-line.

…I’ve got a dog. Sometimes I wish I didn’t.

…I’ve got two cats. Mostly I’m glad I do.

…I’m 50 years old and 30 pounds overweight but people who see me in 3D say I don’t look 50 years old or 30 pounds overweight. But they never clarify that so I’m wondering if they think I look older and/or fatter.

…Update: I’m 51 years old and 30 pounds overweight. Lost 20 pounds of weight to breast cancer. Thank you breast cancer. However, I’d like to lose the remaining 30 pounds via more traditional weight-loss methods. Thank you.

…I started blogging on October 31, 2000 over at Diaryland. I’ve moved many times since and wiped out most of my older blogs and entries where blogs still exist.

…I say things I shouldn’t.

…I write things I shouldn’t.

…I offend people. Mostly I don’t mean to.

    I got a nice white sound machine (various sounds) at Bed,
    Bath and Beyond by it, you can have it loud or soft,
    right now I have it on rain to drown out traffic noise. The unit
    is white, small and you can use a coupon with it. Called a sound
    spa or something like that. I actually have several. Some come with
    clock radio too. They REALLY help.

    AHHH, Kathy, my love — You crossed my brain earlier this week and as I dressed this morning, with a complete lack of the proper earings, I thought – I must find her.

    Here you are. . .in a whole new and unexpected journey. . .you’re playing the part of a champ pretty well. Should I have even doubted that?

    I’m trying/thinking of moving my diaryland to blogger to totally forgotten about blog over to wordpress at some point, which I hope will make my linkage easier.

    I’m praying for ya, no. . .really. . .I am!

    I came to your blog via PlainJane and have been reading you for quite a long while now. I don’t have a blog, I’m one of those people who just read and leave a note every now and then. Would you be so kind as to give me the password for your password protected entries? If yes, Thank you very much. If no, there would be no hard feelings on my end.

    Great blog you have here. A little hard to follow around the web to be honest, but I’m a moron so that could be part of the problem.

      I know! I’m a mover and a shaker! I’ll try to stay at the new one for awhile so you can get used to me! Thanks!
