Comments:

Let's see... I have 2 degrees: Computer Programming and Accounting, Currently working for last 25 years as a system software consultant. I got married, had 2 kids and 10 years later got divorced.
Met my bestest friend, Clint and 2 years later we moved to Strongsville, OH because it is EXACTLY like WI, only it warms up earlier and stays warmer longer - and because it's my husbands hometown.

Clint proposed to me EVERY DAY from the very first time that we met. 6 years of proposals... Then I was diagnosed with cancer on a Tuesday and he said that I wasn't going through this alone... On the next Friday, Oct 8th, 2006, we got married. On Monday I started Chemo and Radiation. FRIDAY - June 6, 2008, was my two year anniversary for being in remission! (Prayers for "good health wishes" are ALWAYS appreciated.) BTW: Being Bald SUCKS. :)

My husband is a Vice President for McKesson Corporation and a biker. We met when I installed his company's software at the hospital I was at - We just sold our 2001 pearl white, Fatboy and bought a 2008, basic black Ultra-glide. It's a touring bike and I am spoiled.

I LOVE to garden... it's good for the soul. I STILL want a cigarette EVERY DAY - yes, I've quit. I still drink Pepsi like it was going out of style - but now it's Diet Pepsi.

My mother - who could forget her? - passed away in March, 2007. I am surprised at how much I miss her. (If you knew my Mother you'd know what I mean and that I wasn't being a wench).

I try to live, now, so that I have no regrets when my time is up in this world. So if I have offended you or hurt you, drop me a line, remind me of the offense and I PROMISE I will apologize. Life is too short for high-school attitudes to rule your adult life or to carry around hurt that should be forgotten and forgiven.

I had some very special friends in highschool... and you all know who you are! I was never in a clique & I had many, many friends who didn't even like each other. I also had many acquaintances I recognized from walking in the halls, etc. I miss you all.

I enjoy reading these profiles. I like knowing where everyone is in their lives now, so please fill yours out - and keep it updated! Mine might sound wishy-washy & I guess I am a wishy-washy person now. My life is good. I am happy.

2/8/10 - Am working on a project and would appreciate help from anyone who would like to share. Question: What are your pet peeves regarding being waited on by a less than stellar server? I am also interested in the question being answered by any child, teen or young adult - please include their age. I want to know what traits you - and they - dislike in waitstaff.

School Story:

8/30/2011 - ok. Sharon & her daughter came to visit me this past weekend. Sharon requested that I remove her story from my profile. So I am.....

I remember Tuesday Nights at the Bike Races and the guys wearing bib-overalls with no shirts on underneath...

I remember laughing... a LOT.

This is my remission angel. Clint Designed her. I have her in the middle of my back - my husband has an identical one on his left forearm.
