this is me now



I've been married 27 1/2 years----i have 6 only children----i was raised in the midwest---my high school mascot was a pretzel---yes---a pretzel. I am a jack of all trades master of none---i've taught piano, babysat, played the piano for ballet classes, done job coaching and job finding, data entry, sign language interpreting----now i am working at a call center for people calling in to find a doctor---i actually enjoy it---part-time and leave it at work. I also perform in a musical comedy ethics workshop for social workers/psychologists and therapists.....i was born to do this---i get to sing and act and play around---the 2 guys i work with are hilarious and rehearsals are fun---which makes it worth a bunch. we do a 3 hour show of familiar songs that the words are changed to fit a situation where an ethical code is being broken....very funny---we've had great response----we've performed all over texas, oklahoma,----gone to kansas and are going to Miami Florida in march! yeah!


the beginning according to merf

my perspective---at half a century--

time to start blogging---therapeutic---will probably be lots of incomplete sentences---dont know that i'll ever try to download pictures---oh-who am i kidding---yes i will----wont capitalize---stopped that years ago---very public place to do something so private---

i miss my baby girls---i live vicariously thru them---and now have to live unvicariously---is that a word? i'm going to end up sounding like larry king---random thoughts...

i'm married to the most patient, peace-loving and gentle man---better than i deserve---

cant wait to be a grandma---but will---i'm going to be a great-grandma---well---you know what i mean---mcdonalds and toys r us and chuckie cheese and the zoo and making cookies and dancing to one-hit-wonders (my favorite genre)

i miss cooking.

i really like my chihuahuas.

i really enjoy doing the detail work on planning bridezillas.

i dont mind working at mindless jobs.

i enjoy reading other blogs---dont know that i will enjoy having others read mine---dont know that i will announce i have one!
