About me

Introduction Making a life of my own in a home of my own, which I share from time to time with one or both of my two daughters. As of 7/12, D#1 is one year out of college and working in Washington DC and D#2 is halfway through college and heading off to study in London in the fall! I am most of the way through a "Day Zero" project to meet 101 goals in 1001 days, and I post my progress monthly.
