I’m baaaack! Back in the midwest that is! After living in the South for 4+ years, my daughter and I moved to the Chicago area. I loved living in the South but there is something about the midwest that says home. So enough about where I live, what do you want to know about me? Let’s see….I’m a list maker and love checking things of my list. Love it to the point, I’ll make lists of lists. Some say this is an obsession, I say its just keeping track. Running is another one of my passions (I’ve completed 6 marathons) and so is cooking/eating (hence the need to run marathons). I’m probably happiest when I’m in the kitchen cooking or baking food for my family.

I’m a single mom of a super shy, sweet yet spunky 4 year old daughter. Being a single mom is a new title for me and I’m learning the ropes as I go along. So far, I’ve killed 3 bugs all by myself and I didn’t scream once, though I will admit one of my two black labs did help a bit. I have a Masters in Healthcare Administration which means I know the tricks to getting doctors appointments AND being seen on time.
What else about me? I’m addicted to diet pop (yes POP, not soda). I drink ridiculous amounts each day. I’m left handed only when it comes to writing, everything else I do with my right hand. I grew up in Iowa but never lived on farm…
