I never thought I would be a “blogger.” I didn’t want to, I didn’t know how, and I didn’t have time! But friends and family kept saying I had a lot to offer the genealogy community, and after attending RootsTech 2014 I decided to jump on yet another wagon and see how far it would take me. As long as the wheels don’t fall off and I don’t hit too many ruts, I’ll keep going.
I have loved being involved in genealogy research since 1975 (yes, I’m ancient). I like to do it, talk about it, organize it, take classes about it, and teach others to do it. I also love to organize things (and people!). I look for simple, cute, and easy ways to keep my home in order and free up time for my projects. I love to camp and read (at the same time) and I’m attached at the hip to my laptop (even when I’m camping). I try not to take life’s ups and downs too seriously and I can find humor in almost everything. If I’m not laughing, I’m not living!
I spoil eight fantastic grandchildren (the “littles” who are 9, 10, 11, and 12, and the “bigs” who are 15, 16, 17, and 20). I hang out with three amazing daughters who love me, three smarty-pants sons-in-law who think I’m wacky, and a wonderful husband who helps around the house and tries to stay out of my way! I am blessed beyond measure for sure!
