Me? What can I say about me? I’m a 55-year-old, mostly happy, sometimes cranky, living too much in my head, lesbian grandmother, residing in Colorado, USA. I came out at age 45, having finally realized how I needed to live my life to be the best “me” possible. Shortly thereafter, the Universe gave me the love of my life and we are creating our dream lives NOW, not waiting for some elusive “someday”. I work as a medical transcriptionist, turning the garbled ruminations of overworked doctors into brilliantly legible reports that will go into your permanent medical record. I work from home, and I love it. I’ve thought about going back “outside” to earn perhaps a better living, but the thought of wearing a bra 8 hours a day keeps me right here typing away. Otherwise, I worry too much and don’t exercise enough (though I’m working on it), so that makes me a card-carrying member of the human race!
The other people you will read about here are:
G – my wife, love, partner, and truly the best thing that ever happened to me! I love you, honey. More and more every day. Ten years and going strong!
Peaches the wonder dog. Sadly, we lost Peaches this Memorial Day weekend. We still mourn her, but were blessed by her sweet presence.
Now, we have little Skittles, who literally threw herself under the bus to be with us. She is just about the sweetest, cutest thing I have ever seen yet. Just a joy in our lives.
If you read through these posts, you’ll meet my daughter, J. As of this writing (October 2012), she’s been living in Denver for about three months, with her current boyfriend and expecting her third child. She has always been my rebel, my wild child and the best teacher of life lessons I ever had. Of course, she comes by this honestly, I can’t deny that. When she moved, she took my 2 grandsons, GS1 and GS2, now 12 and 10. They are the lights of my life. All of the joy I never felt with motherhood, I have experienced twice over with them. GS2 called us the other day on his mom’s phone, just to say Hi. I sent them Halloween cards today and a stamped envelope. I hope they’ll send me something back and that maybe they can learn the joy of getting “real” mail. Let’s hope!
G’s son, A and her 5 grandkids, but they all live in upstate New York. I have yet to meet them, although they know me via phone and Skype.
The yard and our gardens. This space where we live, a corner lot, across from a park, in sight of the Interstate, has become our haven and little piece of heaven on earth. Strangers stop and ask to have a tour. We trade produce for ice cream when the Good Humor truck goes by. I honestly can’t see myself living anywhere else. Check out the photos. You’ll agree.
Various friends and family members, usually identified by initials or names, depending on how I feel when I’m writing.
