My Photo


I'm on my way to becoming a teacher, a recovering compulsive volunteer, slightly neurotic about housekeeping (I confess; I iron), proud of my family. I've got a helpful, supportive husband and four great (most of the time) kids. I've got lots of balls in the air, but that's okay because they're all things I want to be doing.

The Cast of Characters:

Mr. Fix-it aka my husband

Grown-up Girl aka my oldest daughter (23)

Music Man aka GuG's boyfriend of 5 years and someday husband (23)

MVP aka Big Red aka my oldest son 18)

Danger Boy aka my youngest son (15)

Social Butterfly aka my youngest daughter (13)


blogs, watching my kids play sports, listening to npr, cooking, movies, reading, walking with friends.
