This is me...

I wake up early at insane hours like four a.m. sleeping in is anything past seven. I don't mean to wake up so early, but if I do get up before the alarm and the real day starts I write. I also turn off the music or tv or what ever I can when  voices get loud in a room or car. In contrast Mr. W turns the sound UP. The tiniest bit of light will wake me up so I cover anything that glows in the bedroom. When I was pregnant (five times) I craved apple pie and couldn't stand chocolate.

I've lived in:

Bloomington, IN
Palo Alto, CA

Annapolis, MD
San Pedro, CA
Hollister, CA (it is a real place)
Lawton/ Ft.Sill, OK (2x)
Arlington, VA
Omaha, NE
Spotsylvania, VA
Warren, OR

I always have a story running through my head. I LOVE to listen to strangers in public places (I know a huge flaw) but I don't hold anything they say against them. I always have a book with me. I home educate my kids, try not to kill the good things growing on my third of an acre (the weeds are another story), and have been married to Mr. W 26 amazing years (yeah it's that good, I'm keeping count). Seventeen years ago when asked why I home school I said "Because these are wonderful people and I don't want to miss a minute with them." That is still true today even with one married and one at college and one in New York, they are some of my favorite people.

Mr. W, makes it possible for me to do all I choose to do
