10 Things You May Not Know About Me


We all had caricatures drawn at a summer family reunion, 2014.


  1. My family crossed the United States from Maine to California when I was about a year old. In a car. With five kids under the age of eight.
  2. At my peak, I typed 104 words per minute.
  3. Häagen-Dazs Swiss Chocolate Almond is my favorite ice cream.
  4. For a time, my goal was to be a rock star. I combined the styles of Aretha Franklin and Chrissie Hynde, and I played a mean Telecaster.
  5. My brother burned down our house (accidentally) when we were kids. After counting her children while the house was in flames (there should have been five), Mom realized I was still inside …
  6. I have the privilege of working all day at an elementary school.
  7. My cat’s name is Bandit because he stole my heart. (He has the mask, too.)
  8. I attend a church that celebrated its 80th year in 2015 — at the same site, serving the same God.
  9. I’m the Mom of a Star Wars nerd. (He says it’s my fault.) The original (1977) version is the best and, yes, Han Solo shot first.
  10. I use Mac and PC, but the MacBook Air is my writing machine. I’m also fond of the Palomino Blackwing 602.

Tell me something fun about YOU.
