I am 45 going on 16.
I have three kids. One is in college, one is at the Orange County School of the Arts, the other is homeschooled.
I am a Yes Mom.
I had breast cancer.
I was bald. Now my hair is a short silver pixie cut.
I’m a writer.
My dermatologist recommended Botox. I said “no”. I guess there are some things I will say no to.
I am a lead singer in a rock n’ roll band. I work every day to find my voice.
I have best friends that love me no matter what. Even when I am sitting in the middle of a parking lot at 2 am, with the contents of my purse strewn all over the place, looking for my car keys that are not there.
I have a husband that has stuck with me for 20 years even when I wasn’t very sticky.
I have a trampoline in my backyard. I love to jump on it to the Balkan Beat Band. I don’t care what my neighbors think.
I own a wetsuit that fits me like a glove. I look hot in it.
I like to dance like no one is watching.
My psychologist says I can rationalize anything. She says that is not a good thing.
I love the ocean even though it tries to kill me.
My favorite book is Leo Tolstoy’s, Anna Karenina.
Sharon Osborne asked me if I was “kinda hippy hippy”.
I believe cleaning is bad for your brain. But, I still do it.
I drive a Suburban.
I love chocolate and beer but I don’t drink any more. Now I drink green juice. Lots of it. I will never stop eating chocolate, however.
I teach a history class. My first lesson, question everything!
Sometimes I simply shut down and tell my family I am done for the day. I go upstairs, slip into my jammies, lie on my bed and watch Nancy Botwin make very bad decisions. She makes me feel better about my life.
My brother designed it.
Life is good.
