10 Things You May Not Know About Me

  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 on an electric typewriter.
  3. Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Swiss 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 Freckles. I adopted her several days before the COVID stay-at-home mandate began in March 2020. The animal shelter labeled Freckles as “the worst cat ever.”  She’s the best. 
  8. I attend a church that celebrated its 85th year in 2020 — 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. The MacBook Air is my writing machine. I am also fond of the Palomino Blackwing 602.
