About me

Industry Education
Occupation Professional homemaker, occasional shrink, full time chauffer, top chef, and head family cheerleader.
Location United States
Introduction I had an unconventional up-bringing in an extraordinarily large bohemian California family that drove a VW micro-bus. As a kid I dreamed of being a TV reporter with big hair and high heels, but instead find myself as a mom of three grown/halfgrown kids, married to a military man, moving to a new part of the country or world every three years, and driving, horror of horrors, a mini van. After a hard day as a full time domestic engineer AND full time student, I like to kick back, eat a small wheel of brie and contemplate God’s sense of humor.
Favorite Movies Little Miss Sunshine, Off the Map, Waking Ned Devine
Favorite Music Fred Eaglesmith, Todd Snider, Robert Earl Keen, Brigitte DeMeyer, Corb Lund, Lucinda Williams, Lori McKenna, Donna The Buffalo
Favorite Books Anything Steinbeck, anything by Mark Twain, or Booth Tarkington, High Tide in Tucson, The Sweet Potato Queens Book of Love, and all Bill Bryson

The squish of mud between your toes; how would you live your life as a frog?

Well, first of all, I would get my frog self an excellent pair of Teva river sandals, then I would live and dance with my froggy family under a large Elephant Ear plant on the banks of a sunny wild Northern California River.
