About me

Industry Government
Occupation Office Receptionist
Location Southeastern Massachusetts, United States
Introduction I'm a middle-class, middle-aged, anything but normal woman, living in New England, halfway between Boston and Providence. I'm still not completely sure when to use hyphens or commas. I have a husband, two grown kids and the world's cutest dog. I started my first blog, "Deedee, Cut Adrift!" when I lost my beloved office job of seven years with an internationally known home design company. My current blog, "Deedee, Home At Last!" was born when my husband of 32 years and I rose from the ashes of economic collapse and purchased our fixer-upper home. I love to write and I hope my ramblings may be of interest. Thanks for visiting.
