Up Close and Personal

A few things about me:

  1. I am the wife to the most patient man on the planet. We have been married for 10 years.
  2. I am the wicked step-mom to three adult stepsons and I have two granddaughters from Middle Stepson.
  3. I don’t have any kids of my own, but I do have a crazy, high-maintenance dog named Gracie who is the (second) love of my life (see, Bill—I don’t love the dog more than I love you).
  4. I also love NEED my daily Starbucks Venti Sugar-Free Vanilla Latte, high-heeled shoes and boots (preferably Michael Kors), a steady supply of jeans and T-shirts, cool purses (especially if they’re large and Michael Kors or Coach).
  5. Dirty martinis made with Belvedere Vodka are my alcoholic drink of choice.
  6. I liberally use the words “dude,” “groovy” and “awesome” in conversation. Fortunately, despite my East Bay upbringing, I have managed to banish the word “hella” from my vocabulary. However, my favorite word is the “F” word. I use it a lot.
  7. I love to sleep but never get enough of it because my husband (aka “Julie the Cruise Direcctor”) suffers from Chronic Over-Planning. This might a good thing because otherwise I’d probably never leave the house if left to my own devices.
  8. I started blogging because I needed a creative outlet. And a place to vent.

  1. hi there! your ‘updates’ on life get passed on to me from time to time and they all make me laugh my *ss off! i decieded to write because i am still not convinced that there is a face that goes with the name. bill showed me a photo of you one time but you were in a costume and was hard to see you, and then i overheard him introducing you to someone at the Board Install luncheon, but your head was turned away from me. now, when i look here on your website to see you, it is a photo of the back of your head! oh, the irony…..! anyway, i just wanted to say that i love your blog when i get the chance to read it (esp loved one about the changes that take place when you turn 40! LOL!) and hope to actually see your face someday. Until then, keep smiling! (assuming that you are).

  2. OMG! I can’t believe that happened to you too! Wild. This crazy – assed woman made me nuts. Literally. And I ended up the crazy one screaming to myself as I walked down the street with my tail, unjustifiably, between my legs. Ooooh, I”m angry just thinking about it. Thank you for sharing so I know I’m not the only one.

  3. Is that a Samoyed or an American Eskimo?
