I have recently celebrated seven years here on HP. It has been a delightful journey, one I enjoy immensely.

My interests include reading, antiquing, fleamarkets, writing, cats, shopping, old movies, dancing and board games. I also love watching true crime shows, cooking competitions on the Food Network and anything to do with ghosts and hauntings.

My life has been blessed with a wonderful childhood, a wonderful marriage, two amazing children and the love of my life, my beautiful granddaughter. I just celebrated 24 years at my job as a documentation analyst/techwriter, and am so looking forward to the day I can retire. Also sharing my life are three cats, the oldest one, Krissy, and my granddaughter's cat, which she named Spot. Our newest addition is Salem, an all black cat with gold eyes. He is an absolute love. Spot is almost three years old and is a funny, energetic and delightful addition to our family.

Here are some of my favorite quotes/sayings. Please enjoy :)

~ Three things in life should never be broken, toys, hearts and promises ~

~ “Great minds discuss ideas. Average minds discuss events. Small minds discuss people.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt ~

~ God grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me. ~Author unknown, variation of an excerpt from "The Serenity Prayer" by Reinhold Neibuhr ~

~ Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time. ~Marthe Troly-Curtin ~

~ Do not condemn the judgment of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong. ~Dandemis ~

~ While seeking revenge, dig two graves - one for yourself. ~Doug Horton ~

~ Make somebody happy today. Mind your own business. ~Ann Landers ~

~ Whatever you are willing to put up with is exactly what you will have ~

~ When it becomes more difficult to suffer than change, you will change ~

~ We are all here for some special reason. Stop being a prisoner of your past. Become the architect of your future. ~

~ Your goals don't start in your brain, they start in your heart ~
