>Chris and Lou and their families are like another family to us (and vice versa.) Lou was the first friend I met when I moved to Fayetteville. Our b-days are two days apart. Gracie was born on Lou’s bday. Her daughter Reagan was born on my brother’s birthday. My brother’s daughter was born on Chris’ b-day. It’s CRAZY!!! Anyway . . . we go way WAY back!
I am a work in progress. Right now I am concentrating on learning to juggle - not balls or flaming batons but the really hard stuff: family, home and career. This blog chronicles some of that . . . I didn't set out to be a blogger. Back in 2005, when I worked for the local chapter of the American Red Cross, I had a crazy experience I call "Runnin' from Rita." I had to write it down in order to "get it out." I chose to get it out online. Fast forward 15 months, and I decided to post my annual Christmas letter online. The rest, as they say, is history. So here I am 8 years later . . .still capturing the occasional funny moment or deep thought, all in a very inconsistent manner, and with lots of . . . (dot, dot, dots) and (parenthesis) and "quotation marks." . . .You'll get used to it.
