4 names that people call me:

Mom                                                                                                                                                                                    4.  My last name…it’s a military thing.

4 jobs that I’ve had:

1. Fry girl at Hardees-my first job nearly 30 years ago                                                                                                                 2. Steak flipper at The Great Steak Escape-I had a mean flip with my spatula, I could also peal potatoes faster than most       3. Airmen (MSgt retired) in the United States Air Force-20 years, and the best job in the entire world!                                        4. Currently-Histology Laboratory Supervisor.  Don’t feel bad if you don’t know what this means-check it on online.  It’s a pretty cool job.

4 movies I’ve watched more than once:

1. Chef-my new found favorite movie. Have you seen it?  If not, it’s a must see for foodies.                                                        2. Breakfast at Tiffany’s-what more can I say?                                                                                                                             3. Pretty Woman-BEST. EVER.  “In case I forget to tell you later, I had a really good time tonight.”                                           4. Ratatouille-My favorite animated movie.

4 books I recommend:

1. The bridge across forever-Richard Bach.  Probably my all time favorite book.  “There are no mistakes. The events we bring upon ourselves, no matter how unpleasant, are necessary in order to learn what we need to learn; whatever steps we take, they’re necessary to reach the places we’ve chosen to go.”                                                                                                         2. A light in the Attic. Shel Silverstein. It’s truly a magical book.                                                                                                   3. A return to love. Marianne Williamson.  This book saw me through many hard times.                                                              4. Care of the Soul. Thomas Moore.  #This

4 places I’ve lived:

Various areas in the Washington D.C. area-one of my favorite places I’ve lived, although would never want to raise a family there.                                                                                                                                                                                  4.  Anchorage Alaska-Where I found myself, and in turn met the love of my life.

4 places I’ve been:

4 things I’m always saying:
1.  “Huh?” -I get distracted easily and my attention span is shot, sorry guys…
2.  “Good Morning” – I say it at all times of the day, and 99% of the time with a smile                                                                  3.  “I know, right” – I think I may be a born again teen with a 15 yr old daughter.
4.  “That’s what she said”…because it nearly always makes the most innocent statement, well…funny!  😉

So now it’s your turn!!!!
