15 interesting facts about me.
(These are facts. They may or may not actually be interesting.)
I was born in 1956. In some ways, I feel like I’m still 12.
I had my first period at 13, and my last at 47. (it’s easier to feel 12 when you don’t have periods.)
I was born with congenital hip dysplasia. I was in a cast as a baby, and I wasn’t able to walk until I was 2 years old. When I was a kid, I was teased for running “funny”.
I feel increasingly nostalgic for the 1970’s. I feel like I was at my best then, physically and creatively, and it’s been a long downhill slide ever since.
I’ve been married to Jerry since December, 1979.
I didn’t get my driver’s license until I was 21. Late bloomer in that regard. Go figure.
My first real job was in Woolworth’s. I started in the men’s department, and soon transferred to pets. (They sold fish and birds) My cousin hooked me up with a job at JVC, in their parts department. This was the beginning of a several-year career (if you can call it that) in the electronics parts industry. I quit working when we started our family.
I breastfed both of my babies. I was a member of La Leche League for several years, and still think breastfeeding is one of the best things a mother can do.
I would much rather be out in nature than visit a place like Disneyland or Las Vegas.
I hate confrontations. Sometimes denial, or avoidance, is just easier for me.
I make noise in my sleep. You could call it snoring. My family calls it “the scream of the Yeti”.
I have no one single favorite food. I have many favorites, and few foods that I will not eat. Kasha is one that I've long hated. I tried menudo once, and I couldn't get past the smell, but it was menudo from a can, and I won't write it off until I've tried home made.
I have a good memory for color. In my mind I can see the brilliant turquoise tummy feathers of my first parakeet, and the moss-green sweater that I "permanently borrowed" from a friend as a teenager.
I am of Jewish heritage, but do not practice the faith. At this point, I don’t feel like I could ever be part of any organized religion. I prefer to remain neutral.
Here's my recent picture, taken last month in the desert. Not very close up, I know. I like it better this way. Here I am doing what I like to do best, being out in nature.
