This is where I tell you all about me.  I was born at the end of the Baby Boom and have lived long enough that “everyone is entitled to my opinion.”  These posts will be more than opinions though, these will be observations from the Boomer Side of Life.  Try and keep up with my “ramblese” and feel free to participate and leave comments.

I’m a married mother and grandmother and family is pretty much IT in my life.  My grandkids are the cutest, smartest, most talented – I don’t care if they stutter, struggle or fail – they are God’s greatest gift to me.  They are my reward for getting through my own children’s teen years.  Without committing some terrible crime.  Or running away from home, even though I threatened to many times.  I never actually did it.  Well, not more than a couple of hours anyway.

I work at home, taking care of the grands, but used to work in the law enforcement field.  I like to tell the kids I’m a human lie detector.  Don’t even THINK about pulling one over on gramma.  We’ll see how long I can get away with it.  I suppose if I ever come out of semi-re-tire-ment I will go back into the field in some capacity.  In the meantime I get my fix with the true crime shows on TV.  That’s about as close to a crime scene as I want to be right now!  I was divorced once, widowed once and am married for the last time.

I was born in Granada Hills, California and got to experience the 1971 San Fernando Earthquake.  A year later we moved to Parker, Arizona.  It was a great place to grow up and I was quite the “river rat.”  Since I was so young when we moved to Arizona I consider myself a native.  I now live in Colorado which has to be the most beautiful state.  If it could just be summer all year I’d be in heaven.  I grew up in Arizona – snow is not my friend.  I try, I really do but it is just so C O L D.  I’m finding winter is a very long season.  It tends to overlap into spring and fall which is irritating.  I guess that’s why they call it having “four” seasons.  I have so much to learn.  I do know that taking a Sunday drive here is a whole new adventure.  The scenery, the trees, flowers and animals.  We saw a bobcat in someones yard in the mountains once!  Rocky Mountain National Park is close and is always a treat. 

I love to read, learn new things and am always pretending to be a computer geek.  I wish I was a better cook, or at least enjoyed it more.  I need to exercise more and relax more.  I want to learn yoga.  I don’t have any tattoos.  Yet.  Who knows?  I only have my ears pierced.  So far.  Who knows?
