Hi! Thanks for stopping by.

I'm a 46-year old wife, mom of an amazing (adult) daughter, professional data nerd, infrequent musician, and crochet-oholic (I regularly crochet clothing and accessories for my pet turtle, Ernest and our two cats).  "Home" will always be Minnesota, even though I've been "stuck" in Virginia for the past 20 years (I actually like it here).  I love playing Sudoku on my phone whilst laying on the couch, doing crossword puzzles without dictionaries (thanks, dad), and not exercising.  I'm the heaviest I've ever been, and while I really dislike that fact about me, I *really* like not exercising and eating chips. I'm contemplating getting on the exercise train again, but for now it's just contemplation... Usually accompanied by eating copious amounts of chips.  

For over two years  I have posted a #photooftheday on social media and you can follow me on Instagram if you want to see what those are like.  Spoiler: I'm boring; I'm just proud of the fact that I've kept a positive habit going for over two years now (unlike exercise).  I don't know how long I'll keep it up, but for now, it's going strong (unlike my physical health). 

This is my little corner of the worldwide web where I share things that are important and/or amusing to me.  I might review places or products, or I might opine on current events.  Or something else.  It's ok if you don't agree with my opinions about things - I can handle dissent.  I'm putting myself on the "interwebz," so I accept that there might be someone who reads/sees what I post and is horrified at my opinions about Santa Claus, bagged salad mixes, or Golden Corral; I'm prepared for the fallout.
