My first job was as a 'Soda Jerk' at Cone Corners in Stevens Point, Wisconsin. (cheesy , huh?)
Every spring, I participate in the World's Largest Trivia Contest in my hometown of Stevens Point, Wisconsin. Out of about 500 teams and 10-12,000 players, we usually finish in the top 100!!! It's 54 straight hours of useless information and I love it. See? I'm not wired right. Just for the record, my team place 73rd this year. :)
I am a proud doggie mommy of "Spooner". She's a rescue who was an abused puppy mill mom. I am amazed at the FANTASTIC rescues and shelters we have in West Michigan. If you think you want to add to your family, the joy of a shelter pet in unparalleled!
I was the lead singer in a cover band and I miss it.
I have a new name on the list of women I admire. Jennifer Livingston. What an excellent reminder that negative words have "weight" but positive words have POWER. You don't know anyone else's journey and they do not know yours. Better to lead with a kind heart than a bitter tongue.
